• Seth Rollins Reveals When He Started Dating Becky Lynch, Says He Would Be Lucky If He Can Keep Becky For One Full Year
During a recent interview on Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Universal Champion Seth Rollins talked about his relationship with RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, when they started dating, WWE using their relationship in storylines & more.
Below are the highlights:
On WWE using their relationship in a storyline:
“When you’re first approached about the idea, you’re kind of like, ‘How is it going to work? Is it going to work?’ I’ve never done anything like that before and I don’t think she has either as far as I know.
If you look at the way couples have been portrayed in the past, it’s a bit sketchy, especially on the woman’s end. I know some of her concerns about that and mine as well. We had discussions but once we had brainstormed about it and then – at the end of the day, they’re not going to go forward with the idea if we’re not comfortable with it.
Once we sat down and brainstormed how cool it might be and the options that were in front of us on the table, we decided it would actually be a fun thing to do and a cool thing to do and really strike while the iron’s hot.
It wouldn’t be as cool to do it in a year from now – that’s assuming I’m lucky enough to keep her for a full year. I think watching last night, me being in the ring during the main event of the PPV and hearing the reaction when she hit the ring and seeing the reaction on social today, just how everybody seems pretty psyched about the role reversal thing is pretty sick to me.
I think we nailed it. We hit the nail on the hit. I’m pretty happy with it and so is she. I am now The Man’s man.”
On when did he started dating Becky Lynch:
“We started dating in February. We didn’t really keep it a secret that much. We were in public, went to concerts and took pictures. We were friends a year beforehand. It’s not like we hadn’t taken pictures at the gym or elsewhere before. I think people were like, ‘Maybe they’re just friends’.
We started seeing each other in February and I don’t think we let the cat out of the bag until April. But weren’t taking extreme measures like she was walking around with a mustache. We did what we did and eventually she put the thing on Twitter when she was arguing with Beth [Phoenix] and Edge.”
