“The Man” Becky Lynch talks about her first Elimination Chamber match
“The Man” Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring. The crowd loudly chants her name. Lynch shouts, “The Man has come around to Lexington, Kentucky.” She just saw an interesting sign… she’s going to the prom in 2034. They are officially on the Road to WrestleMania. It has been crazy, wild, chaotic, and confusing. It’s also unpredictable. That’s what she loves about this. She loves this business so much. She was 15 years old when she first stepped into a wrestling ring. She has been obsessed ever since. That obsession has been great most of the time. She traveled the world and is in front of these fine people right now. It’s the reason a girl who once failed gym class went on to win the Main Event of WrestleMania. It’s how she met her husband and has her daughter.
That obsession is also the reason she’s missed birthdays, weddings, and her own father’s funeral. Her daughter is only three years old, but she’s already had some difficult conversations with her. She’s had to explain why her face is busted and bloodied, why she can’t pick her up because of a separated shoulder, and why her daddy wants to fight Maui. She’s going to the Elimination Chamber. Her daughter will see her mother’s face smashed on the steel, but she’ll also see the brutality that her mother is capable of. She is obsessed with this and has never been more obsessed about getting the title back she hasn’t held in two years. That starts with winning the Elimination Chamber and going face-to-face with one of the most dominant champions we’ve ever seen. A lot of people love Mami. They don’t think anyone can beat her. A “Mami” chant picks up. Lynch isn’t just anyone. She ain’t never faced anyone quite like Lynch. Whether you love Mami or hate her… whether you love Lynch or hate her… Lynch asks for a drink to make a toast. If you have a drink, some popcorn, or a fist, she wants them to raise it up in the air. This is for Rhea Ripley. She can enjoy her last few weeks as champion. Bottoms up!
Nia Jax comes out to the ring to loud boos. Jax knows they’ve had their differences, but she has something to say to her. Jax gets in the ring, and a “You suck” chant picks up. Jax is pretending to be emotional. She has so much respect for Lynch. If her mom was half the mom Lynch is, she’d be lucky. She hopes to be a mother one day and use Lynch as an example. Lynch looks confused. Jax says Lynch will win the match at Elimination Chamber. With that passion and that drive for her little girl, there’s nothing that will stop her from winning that match and going to WrestleMania. Jax is pretending to cry and then stops. Jax says nothing will stop her from beating Rhea Ripley and winning the Women’s World Championship. It will be them at WrestleMania.
Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley charges down to the ring. Ripley takes Jax down and punches away at her. Jax head-butts her away and knocks her back. Ripley nearly hits Lynch. Jax then avalanches Ripley into Lynch. Jax lifts Ripley, but Ripley slides off. Jax takes Ripley out with a right hook. Lynch then dropkicks Jax out of the ring. Ripley slowly gets up and stares at Lynch. Ripley then sidesteps Lynch and big boots Jax off the apron. Ripley shouts to Jax, “You’re going to have to kill me!”
