Lynch’s emotions throughout the year and heading into WrestleMania 35: I think one day, when I sit down and actually let it sink in, I feel like my head just might explode off my shoulders. I got a couple of text messages this week from people here at work and NXT or worked in the office side of things. (They said) I don’t know if you knew this, but there are some people that wanted to fire you when you were in NXT. Congratulations on the main event. I was like, ‘Well, no, I knew that.’ Then there was other people that were like, ‘Wow, I never in a million years would have expected this, and congratulations on the main event.’

On her WrestleMania 35 entrance: I’m sure somebody will just stand in the corner with a party popper. It is me after all. I haven’t heard anything. So, we’ll see.

On her Twitter page and whether she’s actually the person sending out the memes: “I obsess about this. We have maybe five or 10 minutes if we’re lucky when we’re on TV every week. But when we have social media, we have a live microphone 24/7. So it’s a chance to get my message across unfiltered, uncensored and get people to really care and [to] entertain. It’s just a matter of obsessing about that and making sure that people care more about this than they do about anything else.”

Other topics include the idea of having both women’s titles on the line at WrestleMania and whether she wants to stay on Smackdown after the show moves to Fox in the fall.

  1. If someone couldn’t see the talent in Lynch, then they should be fired. Hopefully they have been.
