Becky Lynch wants the Triple Threat Match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship to main event Crown Jewel.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Becky Lynch stated:
“It would be very powerful if we headline the show. This is the biggest match you can have in pro wrestling right now, regardless of gender.”
“I think what’s very important, in a place like Saudi Arabia, is to show the women what’s possible. Maybe pro wrestling catches a young girl’s eye. If we can have that effect on even one person, it’s huge. Maybe it’s not now, but for the future, you can dream and you can achieve. Now more than ever, that’s so important.
“Even when I think about myself, I remember how I felt growing up when I first saw Lita come into WWE. She was a badass, and she could hang with the guys. She wasn’t the typical cookie-cutter at the time. When I saw her, it showed that you don’t always have to be blonde and look like a Barbie doll to make it in wrestling. That meant a lot to me. Obviously, I’m not a girl that grew up in Saudi Arabia; I had a very different upbringing. But this is an opportunity to show them what girls can do, and that’s very powerful.”
WWE’s returns to Saudi Arabia for their sixth show in the country. Crown Jewel marks the third occasion in which women will compete on the show.
Back on October 30, 2019, Lacey Evans and Natalya participated in the first-ever women’s match in Saudi Arabia. The following year Bayley defended the SmackDown Women’s Title against Naomi marking the first time a women’s championship was defended in the country.
