“The Man” Becky Lynch could very well be the biggest female WWE Superstar of this generation.
Becky is a 4 time WWE Women’s Champion (3x SmackDown Women’s Champion & 1x RAW Women’s Championship).

Dave Meltzer said the following about Becky’s rise to the top in WWE:
“Lynch is the one who was the key to the initially failing ‘Divas Revolution’ turning around. Her program with Charlotte may have been the best booked on the main roster. And it worked.”

She is the only woman in WWE history to win a WrestleMania main event, as only 1 women’s match has main evented WrestleMania so far. She defeated Ronda Rousey & Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat Match in the main event of WrestleMania 35 on April 7, 2019, to win both the RAW & SmackDown Women’s Championship.
After winning both the Titles, Lynch soon dropped the SmackDown Women’s Championship, but continued to hold on to the RAW Women’s Championship in a record setting title reign, where she didn’t lose it, but relinquished it when she got pregnant.

Lynch then took a hiatus from WWE, and as of this writing, is scheduled to give birth in December 2020. This will be her & Seth Rollins’ first child.
After Lynch became pregnant, WWE immediately released “The Mom” T-Shirts for “The Man”:
After Lynch’s rise to the top, she became one of WWE’s highest earning wrestlers, as she also ended up becoming one of the top merchandise sellers in the company (along with Roman Reigns, John Cena & “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt).
Becky began wrestling back in 2002 at the age of 15 and one of her trainers is current WWE wrestler Finn Balor!
Becky got her big break in 2013, when she got signed by WWE. She worked in NXT for 2 years, but didn’t win any titles over there.

In 2015, Becky moved to the WWE main roster in July as part of the Divas Revolution, and the rest is history.
In an interview with Times News in September 2019, Becky opened up about her journey in WWE. Below are the highlights:
On if winning the Royal Rumble and the main event of WrestleMania was her dream:
“It’s the best thing ever. It’s an empowering feeling. I came into the industry without anything and was overlooked in a lot of spheres, but I was determined to make it better for myself with my sheer talent and nothing else. I wouldn’t say it’s all I dreamt of, but this was surely on my list of achievements.”

On handling the pressure of main eventing WrestleMania 35:
“There aren’t many women in this industry. It is a fast-paced industry and that inspires me. Going in front of so many people who are constantly watching you, it’s like testing yourself physically as well as mentally. When you are in a ring and even if you feel dead, you still must give it your best and be better than everyone else.
Jim Ross signed me at the beginning of my journey. Seth Rollins believed in me and helped me when no one else did, during my initial period of struggle. I was called one of the most irrelevant women when I came into this industry and that really served me. I wanted to win and prove everyone wrong. Separating myself from people has also really benefited me.
I was looked at as an afterthought and not given what I deserve. I saw other people who didn’t put in any hard work and just batted their eyelashes in order to get everything. I took it personally and it motivated me to take over. My motto has been to work really hard.
My advice to all the young girls aspiring to be a wrestler would be to not stop trying to get better at everything. It’s important to travel, to work on your fitness, to have the ability to talk and the ability to connect with people, inside the ring as well as outside. It’s important to study the game as well as its players.”
On beating Ronda Rousey:
“I was training hard for it and all the hours put in during training paid off with that win. We still have a one-on-one match to have. I’ll be holding this championship until someone pries it out of my cold, dead hands. So, if she ever wants to come at me – Ronnie, I’m here waiting.”
On defeating Natalya at SummerSlam 2019:
“Natalya is one of the best wrestlers we have in this division. Canada wanted her to be a great woman. When I got into the competition, she tried to chase me out because she saw in me what she couldn’t be, and it helped develop our on-screen equation. Natty holds herself back because she wants to be liked, but when she feels a real threat like how I threatened her, that’s when the real Natty comes out.”
On her backstage story:
“My brother and I would watch wrestling all the time and I loved it. But if you wanted to be a wrestler, you’d have to go off to England or America to train. It was only at Finn Balor’s school that I got the opportunity to learn.
We wrestled for three months on just six blue mats on the floor in this tiny little hall at Saint Andrew’s national school. We’d go down there every Sunday and that’s how we learned, on the mats. We’d go across to England and do these summer camps where you’d train eight or nine hours a day in a gym.
To be honest, I was terrible in the beginning, and wrestling was so foreign to me, I wasn’t an athlete. I was a chilled-out kid, but I was tough. I had never done anything like this, but I just wanted to work.
I remember at one stage crying to Finn Balor and telling him that I just wanted to be as good as any of the guys. He told me that it was exactly what he was trying to make me do. I love this business and I just want people to love it the way I love it.
Even after WrestleMania, I didn’t go on vacation. I got an hour of sleep, then I got up and did morning interviews with the media. That’s all I’ve ever wanted for myself, to run on dreams, hard work, and adrenaline.”
On her busy schedule:
“I don’t really get much time off wrestling. My schedule has always been involved around wrestling. When I’m at home I try to see my friends and try to be outdoors a little bit, keeping myself active. I also enjoy doing yoga, watching TV, movies or even wrestling.”
On being compared to Stone Cold Steve Austin:
“There have been a lot of comparisons floating around this and I have learnt a lot from him from his wrestling days. But I think I am pulling off ‘The Man’ flawlessly and it’s because of my hard work and dedication towards being better at what I am.”
On what advice Stone Cold Steve Austin gave her:
“In a recent meeting with Stone Cold Steve Austin, he had told me to continue to be the same charismatic and eloquent person that I am. A piece of simple advise continuing my endeavour of being the Superstar I am.”
On the difference between her 2016 title reign and 2019 title reign:
“Both the achievements have a different kind of importance for me as I had to make a lot of changes to myself as a person. Since I took up the character of ‘The Man’, I have made sure I just dominate everything I’m a part of and results such as WrestleMania are a testament to that.”
On if there’s a goal left to accomplish in WWE:
“This is a perpetual struggle I am leading and being ‘The Man’ isn’t easy. I haven’t set goals in terms of winning titles, but I have goals to be a better athlete inside and outside the ring. In this dynamic world, I take things as they come, and I’d like to follow the same process in the future as well. For now, I just want to focus on my career here at WWE and keep getting better at my professional wrestling.”
On what she wants her legacy to be:
“I think I want to be recognised as ‘The Man’ who left the wrestling ring in a better state than what I came into. Hopefully, my strides will help pave a better way forward for the aspiring women wrestlers.”
On her relationship with Seth Rollins:
“Seth has always been a well-wisher. He believed in me and help me when no one else did, during my initial period of struggle. Seth accompanies me whenever he’s not on a tight schedule.”
During an interview on The Bella Twins’ YouTube channel, Becky said the following about her pregnancy experience:
“I felt sick the whole time, just nauseous. And that was it really. I was still able to work out, I wasn’t exhausted but I don’t have that, I can’t like, push anymore.
And I don’t know if that’s a mental thing where I’m like ‘Ahh, I don’t wanna’ you know. You don’t know what’s going on and I’m worried about everything cause I’ve never felt this before. So I don’t know what to do or what not to do so I think I was a little overly cautious about everything but other than that I just felt safe.
Skin got real bad and lost a bit of weight actually during my first trimester cause I just couldn’t eat. See I feel like that road life just sorted me out for tiredness. I was like ‘Oh this is a break, I’m at home, I can sleep, you know.’”
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Becky said the following about her farewell segment on RAW earlier this year:
“I wanted to put my heart out there and let people know how much they’ve meant to me. I hope I expressed that none of this would have been possible without the fans, the people who lifted me up.
Passing that championship onto Asuka meant a lot. She really, really deserves it. And another element that people missed, because it’s not really advertised, is that she’s a working mom.
She’s proven that you can do it all. You can be a badass and go off and have a family, you can come in and still kick more ass, have a YouTube show and be entertaining as all hell. The fact that she was the person to take that title from me meant a lot to me.
I’ve had some of my favorite matches with her. Asuka’s cool, she’s so good and she’s a hard worker. She wants to give back and she’s not selfish. Around March of 2019, she was kind of robbed a little bit of her title. I was glad this time she was able to get it back.”
When asked about her future in WWE, The Man said the following:
“The WWE is my family, my actual family. I will always stay involved.”
Earlier this year, Becky Lynch also revealed that she almost had a different name in WWE:
“When I was coming up with my name in WWE, I came up with a bunch of mad Irish names that I thought were cool.
Since my last name is Quin, I tried to get that in there as a first name. Quin Chulainn was one, and that was based off the mythological person from Irish mythology. Cú Chulainn is a badass character in Irish mythology.
They wanted a name associated with my own name, like Rebecca, so I became Becky, and two of the names that came back to me were Becky Lynch and something like Madeleine.
I was like, ‘I didn’t even submit that, I don’t know how it got in there.’ It made me think of that TV show Madeleine. Anyway, I said no to that, and the other name that came back was Robin Daly.
I actually did like that, but I thought it would be better to have a part of my own name in there, so Becky Lynch it was.”
