Becky Lynch has been a trailblazer in WWE’s women’s division, making history as the first woman to win in the main event of WrestleMania when she defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair. Since then, Lynch has solidified her status as one of the top performers in the company, both on television and in the media.

During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Lynch discussed the importance of advocating for equal pay in the world of professional wrestling. Reflecting on her own experiences, Lynch shared insights into her journey towards fair compensation.

“The last contract I signed was three years ago. I was coming back after having my kid. When I left, I left on top. It’s one of those things where, sometimes in a male-dominated sport, we’re historically like, ‘Thank you. Thank you for that. I don’t want to make any waves,'” Lynch explained.

However, she emphasized her stance on the issue, asserting her belief that she deserves equal pay to top male wrestlers based on her performance and drawing power.


Lynch highlighted the need to challenge the status quo and push for fair compensation, regardless of gender.

“There is no reason why I should not be getting paid the same as a top guy. Because of my gender? No. You can put me in any main event and it makes sense. I’ve proved that time and time again. So, compensate me fairly, please,” she declared.

Acknowledging the progress that has been made in the industry, Lynch emphasized the ongoing need to push boundaries and demand equitable treatment. “It’s come a long way and I love to see it,” she added.

With just two months remaining on her current WWE deal, Lynch continues to be a vocal advocate for change. As she prepares to challenge Rhea Ripley for the WWE Women’s World Championship at WrestleMania 40, Lynch’s words serve as a reminder of the importance of equality and fairness in professional wrestling.
