This tweet, Instagram that, Facebook is something else. Today our favorite athletes and celebrities have never had fans who follow their every move.
We know more about them, about their families, about their lives away from work than ever before.
But in the case of the most followed active woman on the WWE roster, this is not the case.
Becky Lynch has more than 12 million followers across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, but compared to her contemporaries, the use of her platforms is very different.
Since some people spend their lives behind the scenes, Lynch prefers to stick with her in-ring personality – rarely posting about life outside of business, including husband Seth Rollins and their daughter.
“Rebecca Quinn (Lynch’s real name) hates social media,” she says. Sports 360.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“But for Becky Lynch, it’s a tool to start a story, or to give a little insight into a character that isn’t seen on TV, and I use it for that. If I weren’t in this business I wouldn’t have it.
With the additional context of becoming a mother, Lynch is also seen on screen in a world that is seemingly defined for her daughter in a way that is not real.
“Sometimes I think it can do some good, but often there are a lot of negatives and I think about how my child will grow up and how it will affect him. It can be difficult for people to see the difference between online life and real life. There is a lot of online bullying going on and I hate it.
“It simply came to our notice then. As far as putting this kind of stuff, I try to extend it away – I don’t think there is a need to post pictures of bikinis or whatever. I don’t want to waste my own life. You can see a glimpse of Becky Lynch, but I would love to have Rebecca Quinn for myself and my family. “
Jeddah is set to get another glimpse of Becky Lynch this weekend when she returns to defend her RAW women’s title against Litter in the Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia. After portraying his opponent in a big way, Lynch has mixed feelings about the match.
“16-year-old Becky, 15-year-old Becky, 14-year-old Becky, and even 33-year-old Becky will lose their minds about the possibility of this match. However, Becky, 35, was insulted. This is the hero of my childhood that I have worked with all my life and he is trying to take my title from me. I’m very, very, very emotional now. “
One thing that is undeniable is that inspirational superstars like Lynch could be in Saudi Arabia. She’s the kind of person who takes her role as a role model very seriously – so now that she’s on the event’s promotional billboards, a rare occurrence featuring women, she’s obviously happy.
“It simply came to our notice then. It’s almost hard to explain, “she says.” Assuming you have any influence on these young girls, maybe they’ll see it and think they might one day be on the billboard – having a girl of my own means the world to me.
“I think it goes beyond your wildest dreams, you do this thing because you love it and you are very passionate about it but knowing that it can make such a difference, it’s incredible. It puts everything in perspective and gives you a ‘why’ Which is nothing else.
The match is much on the way to WrestleMania, and if Lynch successfully defends, he will recognize his opponent for the annual showpiece by the end of the night while the other six superstars will compete inside the elimination chamber for the right to face the champion.
One person who will not be is the returning Rhonda Rousseau. After winning the Royal Rumble, she was selected to face SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, and Lynch quickly ridiculed Dodge, who also knows what it’s like to return to the WWE as a new mom like Ruji. Thoughts of another match in the future are still on the card.
“No one knows how hard he works,” Lynch explained – the only person to beat Rousey in the WWE.
“It simply came to our notice then. It is very difficult to be a mother. Traveling with a baby is so difficult. Put all these things together and you have a problem which is huge – and no one but me now understands what he is doing.
“And I know, if I were him, I wouldn’t want to pick someone who has been able to beat him in his entire run in the WWE – I don’t want to pick me. Do I want to do that? By no means. Pick Charlotte Flair, I know how easy it is to lose her, I’ve done it a million times, so take a little warmth, and if she wants to, I’ll always be here. “
The Elimination Chamber will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at 8.00 pm in AST at the Jeddah Superdome, the world’s largest non-pillar superdome.
