Posted By James Walsh on 01/09/19

As noted, Becky Lynch vs. SmackDown Womenís Champion Asuka is now official for the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view after Lynch defeated Carmella and Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat to become the new #1 contender on last nightís blue brand show. Below is post-show video of Lynch talking to Kayla Braxton about winning the Triple Threat and earning the Rumble title shot. Lynch also took a shot at RAW Womenís Champion Ronda Rousey, her rumored opponent for WrestleMania 35.

ďI said Iíd win and I did. Everything that Iíve said I would do, I have done,Ē Lynch said. ďThere are some things that I couldnít take account for, such as Ronnie sticking her weirdo head in where it doesnít belong, and interfering in my match and costing me my championship. Thatís the kind of coward that she is, thatís the kind of coward they have on RAW. Thatís not the kind of champion we had on SmackDown because the champion we had on SmackDown made the SmackDown Womenís Championship the talk of the world, and it changed the entire industry. And then, itís funny, itís funny, isnít it? The golden girl cost me my championship, and the night after, itís crazy how this works, thereís no automatic rematches. Isnít that interesting, Kayla? No automatic rematches. And I shouldnít be angry about it, I shouldíve expected this. I shouldnít be angry about it, I should expect that I have to work a little bit harder than everybody else, that I have to climb a little bit higher than everybody else, that I have to scratch & claw just a little bit more than everybody else. But Iím up for the task and come Royal Rumble, Iím taking my championship back to where it belongs Ė at the top spot of this company.Ē
