To make it in the WWE, you have to have the full package.

You need to look the part, you need to sound the part, and, of course, you need to be able to wrestle.

There have been plenty of example over the years of WWE superstars who are so close to being at the top, but are being let down by one aspect.

Cesaro is a fine example. Brilliant in the ring, looks like a superstar, but simply cannot connect with the WWE Universe.

It seems like another example is coming to fruition as well with WWE Women's Champion Becky Lynch.

According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, a WWE official backstage is dead against Lynch's strong Irish accent, and that is effecting her time on the microphone.

Lynch has been away from TV for a few weeks after suffering an unspecified injury. Due to the problem, she missed her planned title match at No Mercy against Alexa Bliss, but she made her return to SmackDown LIVE this past week.

It was all set for her to be interviewed by Renee Young, but after just seconds of stepping foot into the ring, Bliss' music hit and the challenger made her way down to the ring.

It ended up with Bliss attacking Lynch and spray painting a yellow line down the champ's back, symbolising that she is a coward.

However, the reason for Bliss' interruption could have been revealed.

Whilst writing a report on this week's episode of SmackDown LIVE, Alvarez noted that Kevin Dunn, WWE's executive vice president, television production, hates Lynch's accent.

It's claimed by the Wrestling Observer that Dunn is dead against her Irish accent and that could see her promo time drastically cut.

It could be a tough road ahead for Lynch, especially if she sees her promo time get cut.
