She was quoted as saying, “Yeah, definitely going into that match, the pressure got to me a little bit. Everybody has the what ifs or the imposter syndrome of like, ‘Oh, my gosh, it’s only been two years. What am I doing here? Becky Lynch, aw, I don’t know.’ But definitely, I rise to the occasion when the pressure is on. And the match, honestly, even though I lost, I feel like I did not lose anything. I came out of that match, I feel, elevated. I brought my all in that match. Becky definitely brought her all, as well. And she definitely elevated me,”

Tiffany Stratton vs Becky Lynch match review
Becky Lynch and Tiffany Stratton tore the house down the last time they fought against each other. Big Time Becks finally won the title which alluded to her entire career but a rematch was set at NXT No Mercy in an Extreme Rules match. The match got underway even before the bell rang and went on to be an instant classic.
It was a very good main event to close out the show with several near-falls from both sides, which made Stratton look like a star and an equal in her loss to Becky Lynch. The match had some crazy spots such as the Swanton Bomb and Leg Drop on the table. Even a barbed wire bat was used which reaffirms HBK’s opinion of NXT being similar to Attitude Era.
It’s going to be exciting to see how Becky Lynch leads the women’s division as the NXT Women’s Champion. Is it time for Tiffany Stratton to go to either Raw or SmackDown? Feel free to discuss in the comments.
