• WWE Producer Reveals Shocking Backstage Reactions To The Announcement Of Becky Lynch’s Pregnancy
Old School WWF Legend and current WWE Producer, D-Von Dudley, discussed the news of Becky Lynch’s pregnancy on the “Table Talk” podcast, where he revealed that almost no one backstage knew about the major announcement of Lynch.
Below is what D-Von said:
“We were watching the segment just like everyone else was at home. And, if I’m not mistaken, I believe Asuka didn’t know. So, the reaction that she gave was extremely genuine and natural.
The response when she did say you’re gonna go off to be WWE Women’s Champion now and I’m going to go off to be a mother, everybody in the room just went, ‘what?!’ Nia, Lana, Tamina, and I don’t want to say the other girl because if I do it might take away from her meanness.”
