Speaking on the September 6 episode of WWE’s The Bump, Stratton shared her mindset ahead of her buzzworthy match with Lynch.
“I’m very confident,” Tiffany Stratton said. “But I also know that Becky is one of the best of all time. She’s one of the best wrestlers in the female division. I have to say that this is definitely one of the biggest matches of my career, but also my career began two years ago, and Becky’s coming after me. So I have to say that I’m very confident going into this.
Stratton subsequently called herself the fastest-rising star in WWE, and she shared her belief that Lynch should be “shaking in her boots.”
“I am the fastest-rising star within WWE right now, [and] I think I have a lot of the different components that it takes to be a top women’s wrestler in WWE. Becky should be scared about that. I think I bring a lot to the table, [and] I think the stuff that I do in the ring speaks for itself, and she should be shaking in her boots right now.”
