“Oh God, yeah. It should have been easy. It was supposed to be a simple thing where we were going to trade titles. I was going to take it off her hands and become ‘Becky 2 Belts’ for an instant, then I had her. “Than throwing away the title and her telling Sonya to pick it up and challenging me to a match that I would have turned down. Everybody should have their moment, you know?”
Lynch said she was angry because she knew what was going to happen and she had no way to stop it. She believes that the original plan was plain and simple and everyone was going to have their moment in the segment.
