“I love talking shop. I think two of us [she and Seth Rollins] are always talking shop you know. And so look, that’s the thing when you’re in the business. It’s just in your veins and you never stop it. And so you’re always thinking of what would be cool, what would be interesting, what would be you know, what would get under people’s skin.”

“And so I was always thinking of what it would be like, what would my comeback be like, what would I do when I came back? ‘Vince is never gonna want me as a heel, so what does this new baby-face look like?’ Then they told me I was gonna be a heel!”

The new heel Becky Lynch is also getting over with the fans. As a WWE superstar, there is nothing more rewarding than the fans accepting you like both heel and baby-face.

Not many superstars can pull this off. But The Man is not like others, she is built differently.
