Bully Ray Takes Issue With How Becky Lynch Was Booked On Smackdown This Week


On his “Busted Open Radio” podcast on SiriusXM, Bully Ray spoke on the Smackdown segment that he felt did Becky Lynch a disservice. The main critique he had was that it made Charlotte look much stronger than Becky. Here were his thoughts:

On Charlotte Looking Stronger Than Becky On Smackdown:

She (Lynch) mentioned about, when the man’s away for this long – something – I forget the line she used. But she got a mediocre reaction because the people didn’t really understand what she meant. You want that first line to hit so hard that those people are popping louder than when you first came out. You want that first line to hit so good that they’re chanting Becky all over again. Whatever Becky said, did NOT grab those people. They were with her but they were with her just because they were out there. That first line, ya know, it wasn’t (Stone Cold Steve) Austin hitting that first line.

On How He Would Have Booked It Instead:

[Becky said] ‘For those of you who may not remember me, I’m Becky Lynch. I’m the Smackdown Women’s Champion. I’m the hottest superstar in the business. I’m the man and I’m back!’ Whatever she said in that moment did not capture the people the way she had with the entrance. I’m not saying they did a bad job – I like the back and forth – but they could have given her some better stuff. Because they gave Charlotte better stuff. Charlotte’s promo was stronger than Becky’s last night. I believe Charlotte won the war of words last night. She had more confidence. Please…I’m not saying Becky is weak. I’m saying Charlotte was stronger.
