WWE star Becky Lynch recently appeared on an episode of the Under The Ring podcast, where she talked about a number of topics including why it was important for her to go back to NXT and win the WWE NXT Women’s Championship.

Lynch said, “I loved it. It wasn’t like a thing where I was like, ‘I need to win the NXT Women’s Championship to feel like my career is complete,’ but when the offer was suggested to me, ‘would you go down to NXT and work with these girls?’ I was like, ‘Hell yes.’ When I was in NXT, it always felt like anxiety because I was always worried I would get fired. Going back to NXT, I got to relive it without that fear behind me.”

On why it was important for her to work with NXT talent as a main roster star:

“Also, when I was in NXT, we had no girls who had main evented WrestleMania. We had no girls who had main evented any shows, as far as I’m aware. Now, I’m able to go down and help these young stars and show them how I work and what that’s like and hopefully impart a little bit of wisdom. I think that’s important that we do that because that’s how it continues to grow. That’s what every generation of men has always had. Seth Rollins has gotten to work with John Cena and Triple H. It’s cyclical. We learn by working with people who have been where we want to go. That’s important we get in there, get our hands dirty, and show them the ropes. Beat them up a little bit.”
