Last night on WWE NXT Becky Lynch created history by winning the NXT Women’s Championship for the first time in her career. Following her win, she expressed her joy in a post-show interview.
Tiffany Stratton had been taking shots at The Man for several weeks. Things finally reached a breaking point last week. Lynch showed up on the Titantron on NXT and announced that she would be returning to the Black and Gold brand to challenge Stratton for the NXT Women’s Championship.
This was without doubt the biggest match in Tiffany Stratton’s career. The two stars were set to face each other for the first time ever. It was the main event of last night. The champion put on a tough fight but was unable to overcome The Man.
After the match, she was interviewed backstage. Lynch was elated to capture the NXT title after being in the company for over a decade.
“Ooh that has a great ring to it, doesn’t it? The Grandslam Man. Here we go! Becky Balboa we did it! Oh my goodness! This is wild. This is wild! I’ve had becoming the NXT Women’s Champion on my goal list for the last ten maybe eleven years. And it’s one of those things you just, ‘like okay, I’m not in NXT, maybe its never going to happen.’
“And then Tiffany just had to go running her mouth too much, and here we freaking are. They can’t say nothing’s impossible no more. Family full of champions. Family Full of Champions. That’s us! me and Seth Rollins. Seth ‘Freaking’ Rollins, we’re both champions. Look at us. Controlling the business,” Becky Lynch said.
