WWE's Becky Lynch Announces She's Pregnant And Names New Raw Women's Champion
WWE Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch has relinquished her title after announcing she is pregnant with her first child.
The Man is with child. Becky Lynch appeared on Monday Night Raw with some major news. After not having a match on the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, the WWE superstar and reigning Raw Women's Champion revealed that she was pregnant. As such, she also vacated her title, naming Asuka the new champion.
"I'm at a place in my life where things are about to change and I need to do something about it," Lynch said to open the show, adding that her leaving was a mixture of joy and sadness. She later told Asuka, "You go and be a warrior because I'm going to go be a mother."
As for how Asuka got the title, Lynch noted that she spoke to WWE management about raising the stakes of the Women's Money in the Bank match. The winner didn't receive a shot at her championship. Instead, the winner--Asuka--won the championship itself.
Lynch won the title last year at Wrestlemania 35, after appearing in the first all-women's main event on WWE biggest show of the year. She managed to best both Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey in a triple threat match.
As most fans know at this point, Lynch is engaged to WWE superstar Seth Rollins. The pair revealed they were seeing each other in May 2019, before becoming engaged in August. While Lynch sat out Money in the Bank, Rollins was featured in a bout against reigning WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
