Lynch features on the cover with fellow WWE superstar Reigns even though a large section of the WWE Universe expected her to become the first ever woman to receive that honour and appear on her own.
The Irish Lass Kicker has taken WWE by storm ever since last summer when she adopted a tough, ruthless and explosive new character that turned her into one of the company’s biggest superstars and led to an exciting rivalry with UFC Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey.
The four-time women’s champion, Rousey and Charlotte then made history as they became the first ever women to compete on the main event of WrestleMania.
Lynch won the historic match to become the inaugural RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion and many expected her to be on the cover of WWE 2K20 on her own; just like Randy Orton, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins and AJ Styles were in the last eight years of the game.
It’s not a slight to Becky
Charlotte, though, believes Roman’s addition doesn’t dispute her accomplishments, on the contrary it gives her even more prestige.
Flair mentioned how The Big Dog, whom she described as the face of the company, acknowledges Lynch as a top star on the video game trailer and also stands behind her on the cover.
Charlotte told The Wrap: “So, I look at it this way.
“If you watched the video game’s, commercial, and Roman acknowledging her like ‘You’re the man,’ there’s no bigger acknowledgement in our company than coming from Roman Reigns.
“I want to be where Roman is right now, on [the marketing materials] for Fox [Sports].
“I want to be the face of the company.
“But Becky and Roman– right now, with Becky’s year and us main-eventing WrestleMania, which is the pinnacle of the Women’s Evolution, which is not just gonna stop there — it’s not a slight to Becky.
“It’s just Roman’s “The Guy,” or the man, and so is Becky.
“It’s a representation of saying, ‘OK we still put Becky on the cover, the first time ever [for a woman].’
“I think it’s more kudos that – Roman is standing behind her.
“Roman Reigns is standing behind her.
“[He’s] The face of our company.
“That’s the big message to me.”
