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.
Lynch told People magazine that she and Rollins found out that she is pregnant in April, and their baby is due in December. She said she has not yet decided on her in-ring future.
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.
