Becky Lynch’s Past Comes Out For WWE 2K20
Becky Lynch has achieved great success in professional wrestling and now she’s set to make her big-screen debut as the cover star for WWE 2K20 – a dream come true for the star who has long wanted to appear in the video game.
Her career has spanned 11 years, beginning with her days as an independent wrestler in Europe to her televised in-ring debut for NXT in 2014. Already a star in her own right before signing with WWE, she has since gone on to become one of the most beloved and successful women globally.
Her current WWE career has seen her win the SmackDown Women’s Championship twice and hold the RAW Women’s Title for over a year. Additionally, she was part of some incredible matches such as WrestleMania 35’s first-ever women’s main event where she defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to take both titles home.
She is widely recognized as a pioneer of the Women’s Revolution and often praised as its “face”. However, in recent years there has been an apparent shift in her character.
Throughout her babyface run in late 2018 and early 2019, Lynch experienced mainstream success due to sensational promos, an impressive social media game, and impressive in-ring performances. Furthermore, her character appeared to have been transformed by new creative director Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque.
Consequently, the former heel has turned her character around and been dubbed “The Man” in WWE – an absolute 180 from her previous persona which was generally considered a heel by most of the fanbase.
Lynch’s recent rise has earned her several accolades, such as being named Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s number one female wrestler for the year. Furthermore, she’s been given a title shot at WWE Survivor Series 2022 where she will face Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in a triple threat match.
She is a regular on WWE’s Monday Night RAW show, where she often delivers thrilling segments that would fit better on sports telecasts. Her performance in the RAW women’s championship match against Bianca Belair at SummerSlam was particularly noteworthy; she won it in just 26 seconds to cement herself as one of WWE’s fan favorites and characters known as “Big Time Becks.”
Becky has had a history of substance abuse issues, and she was once an addict and had some drinking issues as well. But thanks to her dedication to training, she managed to stay sober for many years.
Despite this, she remains an enthusiastic pro-wrestling fan and proud member of the WWE family. Additionally, she supports their charity initiatives.
In addition to her in-ring success, she’s an acclaimed actress and has featured in a few films. She starred as Maddy Hayes in The Marine 6: Close Quarters and voices Axehammer in Paramount Animation’s upcoming animated feature Rumble set for release 2021.
