Who Is Becky Lynch ? Read More About Her

Rebecca Quin was born in 30 January 1987, is an Irish professional wrestler and actress. She is signed to WWE under the ring name Becky Lynch where she performs on the SmackDown brand and is the current SmackDown Women’s Champion in her fourth reign. Lynch is one of WWE’s most recognizable and highest paid stars. Twitter named her sixth on their list of Top Female Athletes Worldwide in 2019.

Quin began training as a professional wrestler in 2002. Initially working in Ireland, and occasionally teaming with her brother using the ring name Rebecca Knox, she soon began wrestling across Europe and North America on the independent circuit for various promotions. She most notably competed in Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling and became the inaugural SuperGirls Champion in 2005. In 2006, Quin suffered a severe head injury during a match which kept her away from wrestling for several years. She returned 2012 and signed a contract with WWE in 2013, assigned to the developmental territory at NXT. Following her push to WWE’s main roster, she became the inaugural SmackDown Women’s Champion at Backlash 2016 and has held the title three times.

In 2018, Lynch transitioned to a more aggressive character starting at SummerSlam, when she attacked Charlotte Flair, presenting herself as an unfairly-treated underdog and dubbing herself “The Man”, resulting in a large increase in her popularity. In 2019, she won a Royal Rumble match, and at WrestleMania 35 won both the Raw Women’s Championship and SmackDown Women’s Championship, making her the first woman to hold both titles simultaneously and a four-time WWE women’s champion. She lost the SmackDown title the following month but then set the record for the longest reign as Raw Women’s Champion at 399 days until going on a hiatus due to pregnancy in May 2020. In August 2021, Lynch returned at SummerSlam to confront SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, whom she would defeat seconds later to become a four-time SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Rebecca Quin was born in Limerick on 30 January 1987. She grew up in the Dublin suburb of Baldoyle. Her parents separated when she was one year old. She started watching professional wrestling from a young age with her brother, Richy who later wrestled under the ring name Gonzo de Mondo. She was involved in horse riding, swimming, and basketball. However, she claimed to have failed P.E. in school.

Quin attended University College Dublin to study philosophy, history and politics, but said she ‘really hated it’ and dropped out. She planned to return to college to study health and exercise studies. Prior to beginning to train as a wrestler, she stated that she had been ‘going down a bad path’ involving alcohol, but wrestling helped her give it up. As a teenager, Quin heard that Fergal Devitt and Paul Tracey were opening a wrestling school in Ireland. She began training there along with her brother in June 2002. She made her professional wrestling debut five months later, using the ring name Rebecca Knox. She teamed with her brother in mixed tag team matches during the early part of her career. She also trained at British professional wrestling promotion NWA UK Hammerlock.

Quin began dating fellow professional wrestler Colby Lopez, better known as Seth Rollins, in January 2019. Their relationship was made public in May, after months of speculation. The couple announced their engagement on 22 August 2019. On 11 May 2020, during an episode of Raw, Quin announced that she and Lopez were expecting their first child. Their daughter, Roux, was born on 4 December. Quin and Lopez got married on 29 June 2021. Lopez announced their marriage on his Instagram Stories, writing “seems like a fine day to (finally) get married”.
