Becky Lynch has dubbed herself “The Man,” taking over SmackDown’s Women’s division all the while putting down anyone that steps in her path, physically and verbally.
However, some have criticized Lynch for this move, including Ronda Rousey, who was supposed to face her at Survivor Series yesterday.
In an interview with Pink News, Lynch addressed the controversy.
The man isn’t about gender. It’s a state of mind. It’s about being at the top.
It’s walking into the male locker room saying, ‘Sorry lads, none of you are cutting the mustard. I’m the man now. I’m taking over the ship.’
I’m the most victorious of all Superstars on both Raw and SmackDown of 2018. I’m the man of, not just the women’s locker room, but the men’s locker room. I’m the man.
Lynch continued on, addressing how great it is to see the LGBT community get treated with respect instead of getting saddled with stereotypical gimmicks.
Doesn’t matter your gender, race, sexuality, whatever it is. We’re all equal. I think that’s what I want to get over more than anything. We’re all 100% equal, and it’s what you do with that that counts.
It’s our humanity, and our sexuality is so tied in with that. It shouldn’t ever be a thing that anyone’s scared to come out. There should be no bias. There’s no reason that there should be.
