WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with ESPN to promote their new ESPN The Magazine cover where she spoke about a wide range of topics.
During the interview, Lynch was asked to describe what “The Man” means. Here is what she had to say:
“For me, the top person, the person of the most extraordinary ability, has always been referred to as “The Man.” And until this moment, that person of exceptional ability has always been a man,” Lynch said. “So when I broke out and started claiming my status as the top dog in WWE, I started referring to myself as ‘The Man.'”
“Oh yeah. People lost their minds. I look at it as the most empowering thing. I’m turning gender roles on their head.”
