This week, during promotion for WWE’s Summerslam PPV at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York, WWE Superstar Becky Lynch talked to Inside The Ropes where she called out UFC featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg.The unique feud between MMA pound-for-pound great Cris Cyborg and electric WWE Superstar Becky Lynch started a few months ago on social media when Cyborg challenged Lynch to a match in a tweet. Since then, much to the delight of MMA and wrestling fans, the two have traded jabs back and forth on Twitter.
In addition to addressing her “beef” with Cyborg, Lynch talked about the possibility of a showdown between the Four Horsewomen of WWE and the Four Horsewomen of MMA.
“Ya know, I think a lot of people want to see it. I think it would put a huge spotlight on women’s wrestling and I think that’s what’s so great about it,” said Lynch of the potential bout. She continued, “I’ve got no problem with people coming in from different industries, but I feel like once you come in, you’ve got to earn your stripes. So maybe you’ve achieved something in your past sport but that won’t necessarily translate to what we do here.” “So if those women want to come and step up to us, they’ve got to earn it and they’ve got to go through us.”
