Becky Lynch and our beloved Hall of Famer Lita have been the first women to be displayed on a WWE billboard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Lita is already considered an all-time great, and Becky Lynch will go down in WWE history as one of the best female talents ever.
The two athletes will compete for the RAW Women’s Championship at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, which will be staged for perhaps the inaugural time in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Becky Lynch feels honoured
Becky Lynch took to Twitter to express her gratitude for the opportunity to make history in the United States. The tweet was as follows: “First-time women have been featured on a @WWE billboard in Riyadh…What an honor! Welcome to the Big time!! #WWEChamber”
Hall of Famer Lita too responded to the news by saying she’s honoured that her Elimination Chamber encounter with Becky Lynch would be remembered for generations. The RAW Women’s Champion and the Extreme Diva will face battle for the first time next Saturday, with the prized championship on the line. Lynch’s hopes of going into WrestleMania as champion will be dashed if she fails.
Lita noted in a new interview that confronting Big Time Becks is meaningful to her since it will be a battle of the past and present.
“I think this match is like a true generational clashing match because we are very kindred spirits,” said Lita. “She lives like a pirate, kind of took a very meandering journey to get to her spot in WWE. Same thing [for me] so I kind of cut from the same cloth. I saw a lot of her in me, as she was starting as I first just met her. And then to be at home and watch her catch fire. I was like, “girl.” Not only did I know she had it, but also I was like, “let me in there.“
