Becky Lynch Staying With WWE?

Although unintentionally, the press release appears to confirm Becky Lynch will be staying with the company. Given the former Women’s Champion is named in the release and will be featured in the new run of merchandise, it’s unlikely she’s not returning to the sports entertainment giant. The Irish star is currently on hiatus after letting her contract expire at the end of May.

Becky Lynch is expected to stay with WWE, with reports suggesting the company will make her the highest-paid female star in history. At present there’s no word on when Lynch will be back in the ring.
