Following her victory in the first-ever WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship match, Becky Lynch had the following to say in a backstage interview segment:
“It doesn’t feel real, to be honest with you. It’s just a dream come true, you know? I started at 15, always wanted to be here, always wanted to be in the WWE, and now to be the women’s champion, the first women’s champion on SmackDown, it’s a girlhood dream come true. It’s not going to hit me for another few days, for another few weeks — jesus, another few years!
“It just makes everything worthwhile. There were so many times when I doubted myself and I think a lot of other people did. I was told I was not going to make it, this, that, and whatever. I’m the last of the Four Horsewomen to win a championship but I won one, and I won this one, and I won the SmackDown women’s championship. … It means the world, it means the universe, it means the WWE Universe!
“Like I said, this is what these boulder shoulders are for. It makes a little ledge for it. Yeah, it fits perfectly. I’ll be sleeping with it on me pillow tonight. I won’t need a pillow, I’ll just hold this!
“Blue’s just my color too. But I won’t be feeling blue with this!”
