Ronda Rousey rival Becky Lynch lifts lid on real-life WWE frustrations ahead of TLC | WWE | Sport

Lynch has been gaining tremendous momentum ever since last summer when she finally got the chance to challenge for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.

The Irish Lass Kicker then turned heel and started a vicious war with fan-favourite Charlotte Flair which allowed her to express her frustration of being overlooked and underappreciated.

The Man’s stunning character switch led to even bigger cheers as the WWE Universe got even more invested in her.

That in turn convinced management to have the Limerick-born grappler win the title at Hell in a Cell and established her as one of the hottest acts on the blue brand.

The Smackdown Women’s Champion is part of WWE Studios’ latest film The Marine 6: Close Quarters, in which she co-stars with fellow wrestler The Miz as well as WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.

The two-time women’s champion feels like her Smackdown character has a lot of similarities with her role in the movie as Maddy Hayes as they both go after what they feel is important.

Lynch told Hollywood Life: “Yeah, I think in the ring, it’s certainly, you see a lot of real frustration coming out, right?

“And I think that’s what’s resonating with people so much is that it’s real, you know?

“It’s that feeling of being overlooked, and of wanting to be more, and not holding anything back anymore, not trying to be liked, and going after what you truly want.

“With the Maddy Hayes character, it’s going after what she feels is important.

“I really, I loved playing that role, especially at the time.

“It was so different from what I was doing on TV, that it was a nice flip, to be able to go and play something completely different.”

Lynch has been embroiled in an intense feud with RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and was set to face her at Survivor Series last month.

However, the match was cancelled after the Irish grappler broke her nose and suffered a concussion following a stiff punch by Nia Jax.

Lynch is set to defend her belt against Asuka and Charlotte in a Triple Threat Match at TLC on December 16 at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
