Seth Rollins recently spoke to the New York Post about a plethora of topics but one, in particular, was in regard to how his fiance Becky Lynch is doing away from WWE. Lynch shockingly announced in May that she is expecting her first child and as a result, she has to take time away from the ring. Rollins was asked how Lynch is handling being away from the business that she has constantly been around for years.
“Oh, she hates it. She doesn’t hate not being around the business. Obviously, any kind of entertainment industry is gonna stress you out, so she doesn’t miss that part of it. She missed the go, go, go. She missed having goals in mind. She missed having something to work toward. And it’s hard because I’ve never been a pregnant person, so she’s in a position too where she’s had to just walk away and stop abruptly her job. It wasn’t like most other women who are pregnant are able to still work their jobs while they’re pregnant and slowly transition out for a short period of time. The nature of our industry, she can’t do that.
For her to go just a million miles an hour to nothing and then to try to figure out, ‘What do I do now?’ in the middle of a pandemic as well, where there is just not a lot to do in general, is definitely a test for her. But she misses being out there and going and doing stuff and being active and having goals and career-oriented stuff. That’s just how she defined her person over the years. It’s definitely a challenge for her. She’s awesome and she’s getting through it, but it’s different for her for sure.”
Other than how Lynch is currently handling her time away, many fans want to know what her plans are for the future. Of course, only time will tell but Rollins believes that she will be back in some capacity.
He says, “Oh yea, I expect so. Obviously that’s gonna be up to her and how she feels. Who knows what happens after childbirth once she becomes a mother, I don’t know. I believe she has aspirations to return. I think she would rather go out on her own terms whenever that time may be as opposed to stepping away for a child. I think she has aspirations to return, but I don’t know. Things can change between now and December.”
Regardless when/how Lynch returns, seeing her back in the ring is something her adoring fans would love to see. Whether the capacity is merely part-time, she will be welcomed with open arms. She spoke recently about how she admires mothers of the business such as Mickie James, Lacey Evans, and Asuka who continue to not only have a family but have a career in what they love.
