WWE’s YouTube channel has released a clip of former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch reenacting the Austin: 316 promo to celebrate today, March 16th.
Both fans and WWE stars have been posting things about the speech on social media through the day.
This speech made famous by WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin at the King of the Ring pay-per-view event after being Jake “The Snake” Roberts. It’s truly an iconic promo.
Since she turned heel last year, Lynch has transformed her character to be one of the biggest stars in the company and not just in the women’s division.
Part of that success is due to the way that WWE has been booking her as of late. Many fans think that she is as close as a star can be to Austin.
WWE has already announced that Lynch is set Charlotte Flair and WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey for the title at WrestleMania 35 on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium.
Although not confirmed, there’s speculation that this contest could end up taking place in the likely main event. If so, this would mark history as there have never been women to headline a WrestleMania in the past.
