A fan wasn’t happy about Becky being labelled as a “man” and posted the following comment:
“Women do all this work to get recognized in the WWE and they call Becky Lynch a man. Smh. Disappointing.”
Below is what Becky tweeted regarding this:
It’s cool, there’s no ‘they’ – being The Man is my own statement. After decades of (awesome) men being The Man, what’s more empowering than saying to both female & male locker rooms, “I am The Man now, what are you going to do about it?” Because make no mistake, that’s what I am. pic.twitter.com/LGEmuogWWO
