Becky talks about Charlotte getting given more opportunities than she’s fought for:
I went in there with the intention of winning the title and I currently do not have the title. I have been burning a hole through the women’s division on Smackdown Live for the past few months, and Charlotte shows up and she gets handed a title opportunity, and opportunistic as ever, when I had that match won, she snuck in and stole my victory from me one more time. She gets handed the gold and I’m left standing on the sidelines. OK, the crowd cheered, but what does that mean when I haven’t accomplished anything? I’m left there with one title run while she’s had seven, eight if you count NXT, and I’m supposed to be satisfied, I’m supposed to be happy with that? That’s not enough for me.
Becky continued, talking about fans cheering for her at Summerslam, and how unfairly she’s been treated:
I appreciate that they wanted to see me win, but I didn’t get the gold, and I’ve been too preoccupied with keeping everybody on side, and that hasn’t done me any favors. I have to re-evaluate everything and re-evaluate what I was putting my priorities on. If that was getting the crowd on my side, if that was getting my friend on my side, well then I’ve been doing it wrong. There’s one reason I came to WWE and that was to be great, and I’m not achieving that.
I have to look at everything and look at the fact that I’m not on the front of the posters all of the time, I’m not on the front of the DVDs. Why is that? It’s certainly not because of me; I’ve been working my ass off the entire time I’ve been here. I haven’t dropped the ball once, but any time that Charlotte Flair shows up then it’s all about her. It’s all about her when I was the first woman drafted to Smackdown Live. The show was entirely about me, that title was built because of me, because the people wanted me to have a championship. I deserved it, and because Charlotte Flair had stolen it from me time and time again, when it was the Divas title, or when it was the Women’s title and before there was a brand split. And of course she gets drafted to Smackdown Live, and again, it becomes all about her.
In 2017 I had one title match, and it was a six way. I haven’t been given a fair shot at all. I am the best on this roster, both RAW and Smackdown, and I’ve proven that time and time again, yet I don’t get the opportunity. Why is that? Is it because I’m not blonde enough? Is that it? Is it because I don’t have enough ‘enhancements’? Is that it? I’m treated like the red-headed stepchild of the entire women’s division, yet I have proved time and time again that I am the moneymaker, that I am the person that people are going to tune in to see, that they care about. People want to see me win, and yet it’s been stolen from me every single time.
She’s out there crying about how it’s lonely at the top; it’s not going to be lonely for very much longer. I’m climbing to the top and I’m going to break her jaw.
