Becky Lynch’s victory over Nia Jax in the Last Woman Standing Match on the March 18 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW marked significant moment for Lynch, coming more than five years after Jax broke her nose, setting her on the path to becoming “The Man.” However, the grueling nature of the match took its toll on Lynch’s body, as she revealed during an appearance on The Black Announce Table podcast.

Reflecting on the physical toll of the match, Lynch detailed the discomfort she experienced, particularly highlighting the soreness in her spine following a Samoan Drop. She humorously mentioned her attempts at bulking up, which she believed helped protect her tailbone during certain maneuvers. Despite the soreness in her spine and other minor issues with her neck and shoulder, Lynch expressed overall satisfaction with her condition.

“Oh, my spine is so sore. My tailbone is fine,” she began. “Actually, I’ve been trying to bulk. Nobody’s noticed. Nobody’s made any comments, but I have been bulking lately. I keep telling people so that, hopefully, people will start being like, ‘Oh, hey, man, you look like you’re bulking up.” Nobody’s said anything. Anyway, I think that protected my tailbone on that leg drop through the announce table, but my spine.”

“I think when she Samoan Dropped me on that chair, one of the legs of the chair just went right into my spine in that real tender point, but apart from that, I’m great… My neck is a little tricky. My shoulder is a little… anyway, I’m fine for the most part.”


Speaking on her preference for weapons matches, Lynch emphasized her enjoyment of utilizing various props and the creative opportunities they provide. She explained her excitement for stipulation matches like Last Woman Standing and Extreme Rules, relishing the chance to incorporate different elements into her matches and push boundaries.

“I like anything where there’s some weaponry, you know what I mean? I like to use a weapon. I like to see how far I can push it. I like it, too, because you can get creative with weapons. You can do things, you can put a chair here and there. Again, there’s just a million things you can do. So whenever I see stipulation, I’m usually excited for it whether it be a Last Woman Standing, Extreme Rules, whatever,” she said. “But, man, I’m hyped for anything. I’m hyped for any sort of match. Anytime I can get in the ring and just beat the bejesus out of some poor young one, I’m happy about it.”

Looking ahead to WrestleMania XL, where she is set to challenge Rhea Ripley for the Women’s World Championship, Lynch expressed her eagerness to compete. She even expressed her desire to open the show and participate in the very first match on WrestleMania Saturday, highlighting her enthusiasm for stepping into the ring and delivering a memorable performance.

As Lynch continues to prepare for her championship opportunity at WrestleMania XL, fans eagerly anticipate her clash with Ripley and the potential for another historic moment in Lynch’s storied career.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
