Becky Lynch had to take a hiatus from WWE after discovering that she was pregnant. Baby Roux arrived and The Man got right to work on preparing for her in-ring return. It was quite painful for her to be out of action, because she missed it so much.
Out of Character recently spoke to the SmackDown Women’s Champion about her time away from WWE. It pained her to watch WWE without being there. Obviously, that just lit the fire under her even more to keep going and press on to her return.
“Look, she’s the light of my life and the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Being pregnant, I was not one of those women that’s just like oh, this is so nice, I get to sit back. I love working and so being away from the ring for that length of time was painful for me, it was really painful. I got into things and I wrote a book, at least five chapters and I got the first draft done and written a bit in the second half. I did those things and I loved that, that was an artistic outlet for me and I shot a documentary, myself and [Seth Rollins] did a lot of it ourselves, I don’t know if it will air or not but we did those things. That at least helped me feel like I was working and doing stuff but yeah, I missed it so much and was jonesing to get back.”
“One thing that was a bit helpful was the audience was gone, they’re such a key part of what we do and god fair play to everybody who worked their ass off through the pandemic without the audience there. But it’s like missing a scene member, everything you do is directed for them and their actions influence your match and performance and without them you’re missing a big piece of it. I was lucky that I missed that, but the baby is amazing though. I know everybody thinks their kids are the best but I think I did make the G.O.A.T baby, she’s a full night sleep away from the perfect human.”
Big Time Becks is now a heel and preparing for a long ride to Saudi Arabia where she will defend the SmackDown Women’s Title against Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks. She was also drafted over to the RAW brand, so only time will tell what happens in that match. Banks is the only Superstar in that contest who remained on the blue brand following the 2021 WWE Draft.
