Becky Lynch, the trailblazing WWE superstar also known affectionately as “The Man,” has captivated audiences worldwide with her unparalleled charisma and in-ring prowess. From her humble beginnings in the wrestling world to becoming one of the most iconic figures in pro-wrestling, Lynch has seen it all. Now, in her new book titled ‘The Man: Not Your Average Girl,’ Lynch opens up about her life both inside and outside the ring, offering readers a look into the woman behind the persona.

In a recent interview with Lewis Howes of The School Of Greatness, Lynch followed up about her book and also discussed her personal struggles with the impact of social media on her mental well-being. She shared that her extensive social media activity, while initially working for her career, ultimately left her feeling “icky.”

Despite justifying her online presence as a necessary aspect of her career as a pro-wrestler, Lynch admitted the toll it took on individuals who were inadvertently “hurt” by her posts. It wasn’t until she took a break from wrestling to focus on motherhood in mid-2019 that Lynch began to reassess her relationship with social media.

“That worked to a certain point, because I would rely on social media a lot. I started to put stuff out there into the world and on to the internet that I would justify it as it’s a business and this is making people talk and it’s whatever, but I know it hurt people’s feelings that weren’t in on it. It’s a different thing when you’re in the ring or when you’re cutting promos and stuff like that, I was like, but this is what people want, they want me to be like this but me as a person, didn’t necessarily feel good about that. I’ll always justify it, but it left me feeling icky I suppose. [It didn’t change] until I went away to have my child. So, it was like from mid 2019 that I just felt like it was forced, it all felt very forced.”


Lynch’s book, ‘The Man: Not Your Average Average Girl,’ is already garnering rave reviews from both fans and peers alike. Join the countless fans who have been captivated by Lynch’s inspiring story by grabbing your copy at your local bookstore today.
