Becky Lynch is one of the hottest stars on the WWE roster right now, and fans all around the world have been comparing her to the one and only “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
Austin recently appeared on MMA Tonight and when he was asked about the comparisons he admitted that Becky does remind him a lot of himself.
“Well, I guess she is, if everybody is saying she is. She does remind me a lot of myself. If you line up that women’s roster and you lineup that roster back in the day when I was still in the ring, and you said, ‘Hey, I need you to pick out my next breakout Superstar.’ I don’t think your gonna pick out Becky Lynch and I damn sure know you wouldn’t pick me out of that lineup.”
The WWE Hall of Famer went on to say that he loves what Lynch is doing right now, and he thinks her current gimmick is money.
“I’ve loved what she’s done, I love what she’s doing,” Austin said. “I like her swagger. And she’s the hottest thing going right now. She’s not a person who’s dwelling on this being the most athletic match in the world, she’s a great worker in the ring, but it’s character driven. ‘The Man’ I love this gimmick, if you’re a young lady, calling yourself ‘The Man’ just like Ric Flair used to be—’To be the man, you gotta beat the man’—but, this is a whole different entity with the way Becky presents it, and obviously, she’s a female, it’s an awesome gimmick and it’s money.”
