Becky Lynch has announced that she’s expecting her first child.
The RAW Women’s Champion made an emotional appearance on Monday night to reveal her pregnancy and vacate her title to Asuka.
She came down the ramp with the Women’s Money in the Bank briefcase – won by ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ – and thanked fans for ‘carrying her into history’.
Lynch began to cry as she revealed ‘she has to go away for a while’ before Asuka’s music hit and she entered the ring.
Becky explained that she’s been the only one able to open the Money in the Bank briefcase and entered the combination to reveal the RAW Women’s title was inside.
The Man confirmed that Asuka is the new champion because Sunday’s MITB ladder match was not for a future title shot, it was for the belt.
Lynch then announced her pregnancy as she told Asuka to ‘go and be a warrior’ because she’s ‘going to be a mother’.
The pair embraced in the ring before Becky made her way back up the ramp. Check out the full segment below:
It was certainly an emotional night for Lynch.
She’s in a relationship with fellow WWE Superstar Seth Rollins and it’s believed they are expecting this child together, so congratulations to them both!
In August of last year, the pair announced their engagement on social media after revealing they were dating a few months prior.
This latest announcement marks a new chapter in Lynch’s career.
She vacates her title as one of the most popular champions in history and will no doubt be back in WWE when the time is right.
But for now, she’ll be focused on something even bigger than wrestling and leaves her belt to Asuka to usher in a new era for the Women’s division.
Once again, congratulations Becky and Seth!
