“The Man” is having a baby.
Becky Lynch, one of WWE’s biggest stars, announced Monday on the promotion’s “Raw” television show that she is pregnant and stepping away from the ring for “a while.” Lynch, whose nickname “The Man” stems from her being the promotion’s marquee attraction, is engaged to fellow WWE headliner Seth Rollins.
“I’m torn between joy and sadness because I’m at a place in my life where things are about to change, and I needed to do something about it,” Lynch said through tears.
With the announcement, Lynch relinquished the “Raw” women’s title. She was the longest reigning “Raw” women’s champion, holding the belt for 398 days after she pinned Ronda Rousey in the WrestleMania 35 main event in April 2019. The triple-threat match, which also featured Charlotte Flair, was the first women’s main event in WrestleMania history.
In Monday’s “Raw” opening segment, Lynch came out with the promise of a big announcement. Before she could say it, Asuka, who won the women’s Money in the Bank match on Sunday, came to the ring.
