WWE Producer Responds To Complaints On Becky Lynch, Not Seeing Her As A Heel, Putting The Title On Her

WWE SmackDown producer “Road Dogg” Brian James took to Twitter today and had a back & forth with fans over how Becky Lynch is booked on the blue brand.

One fan wrote, “I think the fans have spoken in favor of Becky. Time for you all to listen.”

James responded and pointed to how Lynch is currently featured in the top women’s storyline on SmackDown. He wrote, “We’re listening, what would you have us do? She’s in the best women’s story, arguably the best story going today? What else can we do?”

Another fan chimed in and said Becky will receive a huge pop if they put the SmackDown Women’s Title on her. James responded, “Also, “pops” aren’t what I’m shooting for mate but I get what you’re saying.”

The same fan wrote back and asked, “Isn’t the whole point of wrestling to get a reaction from the audience?” James responded, “Well, it’s nice to get “a pop” but pops don’t pay the bills”

James also responded to a fan who wrote that Becky is already over as a”super babyface” but her fans want WWE to capitalize by putting the title on her. James responded, “I’d ask you if she needs the title if she’s super over already. I don’t disagree with you but I want you to think about it. Austin/Rock were super over and didn’t always have the title.”

James told another fan he doesn’t see Becky as a heel, he just sees her as a “badass” character.

Lynch is scheduled to challenge SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair at Hell In a Cell on Sunday and at the WWE Super Show-Down event in Australia on October 6. It appears support for her has been on the rise since she turned heel on Flair at SummerSlam.
