This weekend the WWE announced a triple-threat match for this Tuesday’s SmackDown Live pitting Becky Lynch, Carmella and Charlotte Flair against each other for a shot at SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka, and Lynch commented Sunday night with a statement on why she feels she has to be the best.
Here’s what Lynch tweeted out Sunday night and a promo that taped before the WWE Live event on Sunday at Fayetteville, N.C., which echoed some of the same sentiments:
I’m not blond, I’m not legacy, I didn’t parachute in from another sport. I am Becky Lynch, and the only insurance policy I have in this industry is to be so undeniably the best, they can’t ever sink me again. pic.twitter.com/iQyYA1BvUU

As I reported earlier this week, many of the arenas on WWE Road to WrestleMania Live events in early February are advertising Lynch as SmackDown Women’s Champ in matches against Charlotte Flair, so this could be Lynch’s path back to the title at either the Royal Rumble or the SmackDown after the Rumble in Phoenix.
