Becky Lynch received a lot of praise from people all around the world for her performance in the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. The Lasskicker received a phenomenal reaction from the crowd in Chicago and she truly was the star of the night. However, Lynch came up short and the match was won by her old enemy, Alexa Bliss.
Lynch’s positioning on the card has been a topic of discussion lately. The former SmackDown Women’s Champion clearly is a fan-favourite in every possible scenario. Sadly, the higher ups of the WWE have been neglecting her appeal to the fans.
On the most recent edition of E & C’s Pod of Awesomeness, WWE Hall of Famer Edge talked about Lynch. Here’s what he had to say about the Lasskicker:
“Every time Becky Lynch touched that ladder, the audience clearly let everyone know who they wanted to win that match. At some point, someone has to look at that and go, ‘Hmm, man, they want this’,” said the Hall of Famer. “And there’s only so long that you can keep turning your head on it. When you see an entire audience rise every time that performer starts to climb, they’re sending you a message. And it’s similar to the message that got sent with Daniel Bryan and it’s similar to whatever over the years. For whatever reason, the people are invested in Becky Lynch and they feel like she’s one of them I think.”
Edge continued by saying that it’s time for WWE to pull the trigger on a Lynch title reign.
“You know you gotta pull that trigger at some point and I know she’s been champion and all of this things. But it never really got the fair shake that I think people want to see her get.”
