Ever for the reason that model cut up between Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown was reintroduced again in 2016, WWE has made the general theme of the annual Survivor Series pay-per-view all in regards to the nebulous idea of “Brand Supremacy.” And whereas the format has led to some nice champion vs. champion matches over time and NXT’s shock victory again in 2019, many followers constantly mock the premise for having little to no stakes. Even among the wrestlers have began questioning the corporate’s logic, with Xavier Woods asking aloud what the profitable workforce will get within the conventional five-on-five elimination matches.
Becky Lynch, who is scheduled to face Charlotte Flair in considered one of this yr’s Champion vs. Champion matches, was requested how she felt about “model supremacy” whereas talking with Vincent Beltran this week. “The Man”identified that, whereas everybody within the firm is naturally aggressive, some increased stakes would possibly assist.
“Yeah, that might be useful,” Lynch mentioned (h/t Wrestling Inc.) “I do not know if — yeah, the previous model supremacy is a bit outdated, I do not know. At the identical time, we’re all rivals. So, you all the time need to be the very best. Whatever it is, no matter carrot they dangle. You all the time need to be the very best, whether or not it is the winner will get a frickin’ banana. It’s like, ‘Well, I would like that frickin’ banana. I wanna show that I deserve that banana.’ You all the time need to be the very best. Whatever the logic is, you can also make it work if you end up a aggressive human, which all of us are. You do not get to WWE should you’re not aggressive.”
