Becky Lynch is that “Irish Lass Kicker” who sets SmackDown Live on fire every Tuesday night. But this Sunday, Lynch may be in for the fight of her life when she battles “The Queen” Charlotte Flair, Natalya Neidhart, Tamina Snuka, and “The Ravishing Russian” Lana in a Fatal Five-Way elimination match. If Becky can overcome the odds at Battleground, then she’ll earn a title shot against Naomi at SummerSlam.
She was born Rebecca Quin on January 30, 1987, in Dublin, Ireland. At the young age of 15, Quin made her professional wrestling debut under the ring name of Rebecca Knox. She spent the next decade, wrestling all around the world from Europe to Japan.
On April 8, 2013, Quin signed with the WWE. She made her televised debut as Becky Lynch on the June 26, 2014, episode of NXT. That night, Lynch wrestled Summer Rae. Lynch came to the ring like an Irish lass ready for battle. Let’s just say Summer Rae got her arse kicked.
In the summer of 2015, Becky Lynch helped usher in the WWE’s Women’s Revolution. She arrived on the main roster of Monday Night Raw, alongside Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks. All three women have gone onto achieve tremendous success in the WWE.
In September 2016, Lynch made history, becoming the first-ever WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion. She held onto the gold for 84 days before dropping the title to Alexa Bliss in a tables match this past December. This Sunday, Lynch has another chance to climb back up the ranks of SmackDown‘s women’s division. But she’ll have a lot of competition to contend with on her way to Naomi’s title…
