• Great News For Becky Lynch’s Fans
“The Big Dog” Roman Reigns is the ‘Face of WWE’. He’s WWE’s #1 merchandise seller and his [kayfabe] resume speaks for itself.
However, there is one WWE Superstar that Vince McMahon views above Roman Reigns now – Becky Lynch.
According to Slice Wrestling, Vince McMahon knows he has struck gold with Becky’s recent popularity and has no problem with making her the female face of the company.
Becky will be main eventing WrestleMania 35 this Sunday and she’s expected to win both the RAW & SmackDown Women’s Titles.
She’s also doing very well with merchandise sales and is actually a top seller now, and that helps her as Vince knows she’s important to the company.
Expect a very bright future for Becky Lynch in WWE from this point on!
