Becky Lynch has revealed the details of her conversation with The Rock when she asked for permission to perform his signature Rock Bottom.
Becky Lynch made a huge impact when she returned to WWE on August 21st at SummerSlam after 15 months away. Lynch defeated Bianca Belair in less than 30 seconds to capture the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship. ‘The Man’ used a variation of the Rock Bottom she has dubbed the ‘Manhandle Slam’ to win the lightning-fast match.
Lynch revealed on ‘Out of Character with Ryan Satin’ that she called the ‘Great One’ to get permission to use the maneuver. Rock not only gave her his blessing but also advice:
“I used a variation of the Rock Bottom before but it’s just easier to just get it and go. I asked The Rock if I could use it and he was very gracious and said I could. I called him, told him how SummerSlam was going to go down, and said ‘Here’s what I’m thinking, I’m supposed to hit one move on her [Bianca Belair], can I use this?’”
“He said ‘Yeah.’ There was more, he is so awesome and so gracious with his time and his advice. To be able to get advice from one of the best like that and somebody who’s so busy like that, it makes you feel very happy.”
Becky Lynch recently had some harsh words for one of her WrestleMania 35 opponents, Ronda Rousey. Lynch warned the former WWE Raw Women’s and UFC Bantamweight Champion to never come back to WWE.
