Sometimes it feels strange to cover what wrestlers are saying on Twitter on a web site like this one, but it’s 2019, and at a certain point we just have to accept that Twitter is where a big part of the story of professional wrestling is being told, both behind the scenes and in kayfabe. Just recently, the Hardcore Legend Mick Foley took to Twitter (and Walt Disney World) to express his support for The Man Becky Lynch at this weekend’s Royal Rumble Event:
Becky Lynch has a Smackdown Women’s Title match at the Royal Rumble, but many fans also expect her to enter and possibly win the women’s Royal Rumble match itself, earning her way to a WrestleMania match against Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Along the way, Becky has continued to use Twitter effectively, like when she put her own spin on the events of last night’s Smackdown Live:
Meanwhile the defending Smackdown Women’s Champion, Asuka, has taken to video editing as an alternative to cutting Twitter promos, and it’s pretty effective:
Becky also tweeted at her old friend and wrestling mentor Finn Bálor, who’s facing Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble, suggesting that they should both win belts “for old times sake.”
Whether you’re into what The Man is doing or you’re wrong about that, you can’t deny that social media, particularly Twitter and Instagram, have played a major role in building Becky Lynch’s character and getting people excited about her.
