It's safe to say that there's probably nobody more in-form than Becky Lynch in all of WWE today.

Whether it's on the microphone or in the ring, The Irish Lass Kicker's recent change in attitude with her heel turn has worked wonders for her stock.

SUCCESS

She's finally getting the limelight she deserves to shine in, she's the SmackDown Women's Champion and she even had more support than Ronda Rousey heading into their cancelled Survivor Series match where Charlotte Flair replaced Lynch.

It still seems like the match is going to happen at some point down the line as the WWE has seen just how much interest both women managed to drum up in a short space of time, both on programming and on social media.

However, former UFC star Chael Sonnen has risked the wrath of WWE fans all over the world after he went on a Rousey rant on his podcast - labelling Lynch a 'Jane Doe jobber' in the process.

As expected, fans on Twitter aren't too happy.

JANE DOE JOBBER

According to Wrestling Inc, an excerpt from Sonne's comments read: "When one person shoots on you, it's very had to work back. If they shoot on you, you gotta shoot on them. That's the general rule.

"So, if Ronda's gonna be forced to answer for her departure from MMA, she's gonna have to tell the truth. And I think that Ronda's been very candid. To know that she's been hiding under a blanket, taking her ball and going home, and was looking to go elsewhere, that's evidence and information that you have because Ronda provided it.

"'Jane Doe Jobber' is getting traction with this because she worked reality into the script. And it's like anything in life, guys, it's the truth that hurts!

"Somebody's telling lies about you? Eh, that's annoying. That doesn't hurt. It's the truth. And she's gonna gain traction with it, and she's gonna stay on Ronda, and it's not gonna go away whether it's scripted television, entertainment or not. And the good folks of WWE, contrary to what you believe, are not gonna hand Ronda the answers. They're just gonna hand her lines."

The reaction says it all.

Sonnen - who WWE was once interested in - is notorious for playing the villain role. So it sounds like he's either trying to get a reaction, or he really hasn't done his homework on what's been happening in the WWE recently with Lynch more popular than ever.
