Doudrop Describes How Becky Lynch Inspired Her As A Star From The UK

Doudrop and Becky Lynch may be rivals on-screen, but behind the scenes, there’s a ton of admiration.

WWE star Doudrop recently appeared on Out of Character with Ryan Satin and delved into how Becky Lynch’s rise to the top of the company proved that someone from “the middle of nowhere” in the United Kingdom can become the face of WWE.

“I think it’s maybe a coincidence or it could’ve been by design subconsciously and I think the two of us have like a little bit of respect for each other because we have come from similar places. Ya know, middle of nowhere Scotland and Ireland and doing the indies and wrestling all over the place. So, she knows that I’d know what it was like, kind of a thing, which is nice. I’m going to try and paraphrase this story, my uncle, who’s won bodybuilding competitions and stuff, he told me this story that nobody thought it was possible for someone to do a 400-pound deadlift and then one year, one guy did it, he broke the record, he was the deadlifting champion and then the same year, five other people did it.

“It’s all about perceptions and if you think it can be achieved, you can do it but if you don’t think you can do it, you can’t. So, she was the one who showed it is possible to come from this place and succeed and get to the top and she was just such a pinnacle of your dreams are possible but you just gotta keep working through it…and look at where we are know.”

Becky Lynch successfully defended her RAW Women’s Championship against Doudrop this past weekend at the Royal Rumble.
