Lynch said, “The Pat McAfees of the world or the Logan Pauls can have three matches a year or one match and we can put a spotlight on them and give them their kudos and their flowers and say, ‘Well done.’ 

“But this business is hard. This business is so hard and it’s tough, and it’s skill and it’s craft, and without those people that know how to do this in the way that we do it, then it will die,” she added. 

Her straightforward remarks might hurt some. But they gave voice to those weekly talents who work hard every day to get into the spotlight. Here, she highlighted how a business cannot just run on the shoulders of celebs. Thus, the promotion should also appreciate and give a way for its own superstars to rise. And to make her point more concrete, she pointed to some recent instances while taking a dig at McAfee and Paul.
