Becky Lynch’s growth as a WWE Superstar over the years is very well known at this point in time. Lynch has worked incredibly hard to overcome depression and come back stronger than ever. The results of her hard work speak for itself.
2018 was certainly the most significant year for Becky Lynch’s career. It ultimately led to her rise to superstardom after she suffered a legitimate concussion at the hands of Nia Jax just before Survivor Series that year.
Since then, Big Time Becks upped her social media game and became one of the biggest stars in the industry. While speaking on his podcast, Foley is Pod, Mick Foley recalled the time he had to convince Becky Lynch to not quit WWE.
“You know, look, I wrote this article, I think it was in 2012. I think it was about the Divas, and it was about how much they did behind the scenes and what great ambassadors they were, and that even though as much wasn’t expected of them in the matches, they were really workhorses for the company, and I didn’t think they were being compensated like they should have.
“So not to just say this to be a name dropper, but before Becky Lynch became The Man, before she got that break that we all thought she was due, she was really wondering, you know, she’s really down on herself, down on her role with the company, wondering if it was all worth it. I remember giving her two pieces of advice.
I said, be patient, be ready. I relayed to her a story about me being in the Memphis studio, and I was forbidden from talking because I had some of the tell-tale sounds of a New Yorker, which wasn’t good, especially because Gary Young and I just turned babyface in Memphis. The crowd would have turned on a babyface New Yorker in a heartbeat. But what happened is Gary was a good promo guy, he fumbled a little bit. Lance Russell hands me the microphone and I was ready with stuff and cut a pretty good promo.
So with that in mind, that’s what I told Becky. And then I also told her not to give up on the independent scene. It might refresh her and you know, remind her what she loves. And I said, if you don’t mind me asking, like what did you make last year? I won’t tell you what she made, I’ll just tell you my reaction was, oh, well, you’ve got to stay in WWE.
I didn’t know that the money had picked up for the women to that extent. And like you said, how many women do you think are making seven figures? Six or seven?”
Becky Lynch is currently trying to weasel her way into a RAW Women’s Title match against Bianca Belair at SummerSlam. We’ll have to see if it will end up happening or not.
