Since the brand split draft a few months ago, Becky Lynch has taken ahold of the babyface role on Smackdown Live. It has helped her become the first ever Smackdown Live women’s champion. In light of that, Lynch revealed that she could easily flip the script if asked upon, according to Games Radar.
“Oh, 100 per cent. And [I’ll do it] when people least expect it! Mostly for social media: Twitter or Instagram becomes so much more fun when you can be boastful and say whatever you want. You can be so full of yourself and ridiculous when you’re a heel. And if I’m ever going to feud with Bayley again, you couldn’t have her be the heel. Actually, I would love to see Bayley heel though. Wouldn’t that be funny. What would she do? Kick puppies? I don’t know!”
Many have forgotten that she had taken up that role with NXT during a feud with Bayley. Lynch has the fiery personality that could be useful in both roles on the program. This combined with her strong work in the ring, it makes her quite an appealing superstar.
However, Lynch appears to be fitting quite well in the babyface role for the time being. She has become a crowd favorite because of her competitive spirit and strong work in the ring. It will be interesting to see what the WWE has planned ahead for her given her openness to one day embracing the heel role.
