Becky Lynch is riding high as SmackDown’s Women’s Champion and one of WWE’s biggest acts. But her early wrestling and WWE career were rollercoaster times in her life.
Lynch and Big E were guests on the most recent episode of WWE’s The Bump, The Man revealed just how influential Big E was on her wrestling career and ultimately success.
“E is the best. He has talked me off many a ledge, many a ledge when I was down and couldn’t get my foot in WWE, E was always there to make me laugh because he’s one of the funniest dudes you’ll ever meet, and be so kind and patient.” Lynch continued, “He’s got this calming energy that when you sit beside him, he just makes you feel better and calm and hopeful. This new era of E in WWE brings a lot of hope to not only the company, the business, but the world.”
Lynch and Big have a close friendship and have many hilarious exchanges on social media often involving Lynch’s mom. Lynch and her mother congratulated Big E on his awesome title victory this week.
The message is in reference to Big E’s tweet two years ago that went viral when he expressed interest in “Mama Lynch”. As part of Lynch’s feud with Lacey Evans, Lynch posted a photo of her mom holding a plank (interference to the Sassy Southern Belle), to which Big E responded.
Lynch is currently feuding with Bianca Belair over the SmackDown Women’s Championship and will clash at Extreme Rules.
