• WWF Legend Says He Encouraged Becky Lynch To Use “The Man” Nickname Everywhere

During a recent appearance on Not Sam podcast, Old School WWF Legend Mick Foley revealed that he encouraged SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch to use “The Man” nickname everywhere.

Below is what Foley said:

“To me, it’s like an Austin 3:16 moment, but Becky Lynch is #TheMan. She came up with the catchphrase. She didn’t use the hashtag, but I told her that she has to use it everywhere she goes, you are now The Man.

It throws gender on its head, and women will be more than happy to say that Becky Lynch is The Man. I think men will gladly say that she is The Man. It is a bigger statement. It somehow makes perfect sense. I am on board. I believe wholeheartedly that she is The Man.”
