Becky Lynch was originally set to face Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series a few weeks ago, but unfortunately she had to be pulled from the match after she suffered a severe concussion and a broken nose thanks to a stiff shot from Nia Jax.
The SmackDown Women’s Champion opened up about the infamous punch during an appearance on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, and she said that she completely blacked out during the segment.
“I got a severe concussion and I broke my nose, so I was in [the] hospital that night after the event, so I completely blacked out after I got hit, right? But I rolled to the ropes and got back up again. I guess my autopilot kicked in and I smashed half of RAW including Runny Ronnie. So it turns out that my autopilot is a badass too.”
Even though Becky Lynch ultimately had to be pulled from her match with Ronda Rousey, she doesn’t seem too worried, as she teased that it could lead to something much bigger.
“Completely out of it, I was completely out on my feet. Well, hopefully, it will lead to bigger and better things. I think now the fight that people want to see is me versus Ronnie. They do want to see it on a bigger stage and I think WrestleMania is a pretty damn big stage. That’s my goal. That’s all I can think about. That’s all I want. I’m living it right now. That’s what I wake up thinking about. That’s what I go to bed thinking about. If I had a vision board, that would be on my vision board. But I think the possibility is right there, right? And for no other reason than it is the fight that people most care about seeing, right? So it doesn’t matter what the gender is or if it’s for [WWE] Evolution and it’s the one that people care about the most, and so it should be the main event.”
