Becky Lynch On Who Came Up With Idea For Women’s MITB Match, Mae Young Classic, More

Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with SportsKeeda to promote the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view event in St. Louis, MO at the Royal Farms Arena. Here are the highlights.

This is the first time in WWE’s history that we will see a Women’s Ladder Match at Money In The Bank. Can you tell us who came up with the idea for the Match?

“I think it was one of the writers or Road Dogg. I can’t be a hundred percent sure but I just know that it was one of those things where it was: “are we sure we can do this?”, and then I think seeing the calibre of talent we have on SmackDown, they were like: “yes we can do this and yes it’s gonna be great!”

The Mae Young Classic tournament should be a big sign of the success of the Women’s Revolution. What do you think should be the prize for the winner of the Mae Young Classic?

“As far as I know, it will be a trophy like they did with the Cruiserweight Classic. I think it would be the same thing. And then I’d like to see the winner come up and try her hand at SmackDown. That’d be great!”

You’ve had the chance to work with a great number of Superstars since debuting on the main roster. Other than the “Horsewomen”, who was the best Superstar to work with?

“I love working with Natalya. She’s amazing, she’s so good technically and has so much experience. I absolutely love working with Natalya. Another person was Brie Bella, when she was here. I loved working with Brie Bella, I thought she was great.”
