Fans around the wrestling community are in shock and must be feeling a plethora of emotions after the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. WWE Superstar, Becky Lynch dropped a monumental bombshell on wrestling fans. The Irish Lash-kicker, The Man, is pregnant!
The 33-year-old revealed her pregnancy during Monday night’s episode while announcing she was relinquishing her Raw Women’s Championship belt to WWE superstar Asuka, the winner of Sunday night’s Money in the Bank.
The joyous news means Lynch — one of WWE’s biggest and brightest personalities — will be stepping away from the ring as she focuses on her child, who is expected in December.
“I’ve always, always wanted kids,” Lynch tells PEOPLE of her pregnancy. “I’m just so career-focused that it became one of those things that, when you’re chasing a dream for so long, I always wondered, ‘Am I going to get around to it? Is it going to happen for me?’ “
When it comes to returning to the ring, Lynch says she won’t be making a decision any time soon. “It’s just such a joyous time and then such a sad time too. I loved this and I’ve given my life to this. I’ve achieved everything that I want to achieve in this business,” she explains.
“I don’t know what the next chapter is because I only know what it’s like to think for myself when I’m by myself,” Lynch tells PEOPLE. “So I don’t know what it’ll look like and how my priorities shift and what I’m going to want in the future. So, everything’s open.”
