Becky Lynch shocked the wrestling world when she relinquished the RAW Women’s Championship and announced her pregnancy last year.
Lynch was absent from WWE for fifteen months before returning at this year’s SummerSlam in emphatic and controversial fashion as she defeat Bianca Belair in just twenty-six seconds.
The Man was a guest on the latest episode of Out of Character with Ryan Satin, and spoke about her pregnancy, absence, and juggling motherhood with WWE superstar.
Here’s what Lynch had to say:
“Look, she’s the light of my life and the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Being pregnant, I was not one of those women that’s just like oh, this is so nice, I get to sit back. I love working and so being away from the ring for that length of time was painful for me, it was really painful. I got into things and I wrote a book, at least five chapters and I got the first draft done and written a bit in the second half. I did those things and I loved that, that was an artistic outlet for me and I shot a documentary, myself and [Seth Rollins] did a lot of it ourselves, I don’t know if it will air or not but we did those things. That at least helped me feel like I was working and doing stuff but yeah, I missed it so much and was jonesing to get back.”
“One thing that was a bit helpful was the audience was gone, they’re such a key part of what we do and god fair play to everybody who worked their ass off through the pandemic without the audience there. But it’s like missing a scene member, everything you do is directed for them and their actions influence your match and performance and without them you’re missing a big piece of it. I was lucky that I missed that, but the baby is amazing though. I know everybody thinks their kids are the best but I think I did make the G.O.A.T baby, she’s a full night sleep away from the perfect human.”
“It’s amazing, you don’t miss anything. It’s tough sometimes because you get on planes normally and you can fall asleep but if she’s not tired then you’re up. Even on RAW Monday Night, I did the opening segment, came back and put her to bed and then went out to do commentary. It’s wild, but it makes everything more rewarding and more fulfilling.”
