Becky Lynch has revealed how motherhood has pushed her to a whole new level as WWE superstar.
The Raw Women’s Champion – who will defend her title against Bianca Belair on night one of WrestleMania 38 tonight in Dallas, Texas – has been on fire since returning at SummerSlam 2021 months after welcoming baby Roux into the world with Seth Rollins.
Speaking about the impact becoming a parent has had on her mentality as a performer, she exclusively told Metro.co.uk: ‘I think, if anything, it makes you hungrier, right? Because you’ve got something to prove.
‘You’ve got this little girl that looks up to you, and you’ve got to prove to her that she shouldn’t be limited by anything, that absolutely nothing should hold her back. Absolutely nothing, she’s got to chase her dreams.’
Lynch and Rollins have been travelling with their bundle of joy once she returned to the road, and it’s clear how important motherhood is to The Man.
‘Then I look at her and I see how powerful she is. She’s a 16-month-old who I am deathly afraid of. She has this power. She whines and I’m like, “Ohh no, what is it, my little angel?” ‘
The hold her baby girl has over her gives Big Time Becks a boost in her own life as she realises her role in her daughter’s growth.
‘She holds this power of me. I’m like, if this little 16 month old that don’t know nothing about this world has all this power and I am the person who created her, how powerful am I? I am Thanos, you know,’ she smiled.
‘I’m not even freakin’ Thanos, I am the entire universe! I am unstoppable!’
Lynch and Belair will clash during a stacked WrestleMania show at AT&T Stadium, with the SmackDown Women’s Championship also on the line.
The first night will also see Becky’s husband Seth Freakin’ Rollins face off with an opponent of Vince McMahon’s choosing, with plenty of speculation surrounding the mystery man.
Meanwhile, Kevin Owens will live out a childhood dream when he’s joined by ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin in a special edition of the KO Show, with all signs pointing to things getting physical.
