Becky Lynch Explains Why Female Fans Are Crucial To WWE
Becky Lynch is recognized as one of the greatest women’s wrestlers in WWE history and she recently spoke about how important female fans are in WWE.
It’s been an incredible run for “The Man” Becky Lynch in WWE over the last decade. During her WWE career, Lynch is a four-time Smackdown Women’s Champion, a two-time Raw Women’s Champion and she’s also a current Women’s Tag Team Champion with Lita.
At WrestleMania 39 Saturday last week, Becky Lynch teamed up with WWE Hall of Famers Lita & Trish Stratus to beat Damage CTRL’s Bayley, IYO SKY & Dakota Kai.
It was four years ago at WrestleMania 35 when Lynch won the main event of WrestleMania by beating Ronda Rousey & Charlotte Flair to become the Raw & Smackdown Women’s Champion leading to the “Becky Two Belts” moniker.
In addition to all of her accomplishments on screen in WWE, Lynch is also a mother to a little girl named Roux that she gave birth to in December 2020. Lynch and her husband Seth “Freakin” Rollins bring their daughter on the road with them while doing their best to raise their little girl the right way.
While speaking on Steve A. Smith’s “Know Mercy” podcast, Becky Lynch spoke about the female audience in WWE.
“I think our female audience is 40% now? And I think you get that relatability. For example, the UFC, I prefer watching the women fight, because I’m a woman, so I can picture myself in that regard. It’s just … we’re all just people doing a sport. We’re all just telling stories.”
“I think, gender aside, we do bring in a larger female audience because we show what [women are] capable [of]. But, in general, I think we’re at this stage, where, gender be damned, we’re just flowing with our stories and we’re just [WWE] Superstars.”
After Smith reacted to that, Becky Lynch clarified that she “was talking about ‘gender be damned’ in terms of storylines” saying that everybody that is a top star can be in a main event now.
