Here is yet another reason why it’s hard to hate Becky Lynch. Actually, it’s darn near impossible to despise her, especially when she breaks kayfabe for an emotional and adoring fan, which is exactly what happened recently at an autograph signing.
This leads many to question why they turned her heel to begin with shortly after she returned to SummerSlam this year, when pitted against Ester – I mean Bianca Belair, but Becky isn’t at all a stranger to such interactions at meet and greets.
It was just a few years ago when Becky was surprised by a fan who brought her a limited edition live box set of Pearl Jam content. She didn’t know how to act, so she just broke kayfabe then too, and let the fan know how appreciative she was for the incredible gesture.
These moments show that Becky Lynch is perhaps beyond the realm of simply established heel or face…she has reached that level of fame and adoration in pro wrestling enjoyed only perhaps by only one other wrestling legend…the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Whether or not she will remain heel after her feud with Bianca Belair is over remains to be seen, but she definitely has that connection with the crowd that is seldom seen from any other superstar, as was proven with this video, so to see her stay heel would certainly be a waste, and a loss.
As can be seen in the video, the fan and Becky met years prior, something that Becky actually remembered, and although the girl had grown…she still remembered the meeting. This was special for the young woman, for Becky and those of us watching it all unfold. Does anyone have a tissue? I’ve kind of got something in my eye.
