Becky Lynch had fans in a tizzy on Sunday night during the Royal Rumble.
Lynch, who was backstage for the big event posted a photo of a curtain. Immediately, fans became excited believing the star was making a return.
Unfortunately, Becky didn’t make an appearance that night, but her fiancé Seth Rollins made his return in the men’s battle royal.
Given that it’s been less than two months since she gave birth to daughter Roux, a Royal Rumble return for Lynch.
But fans could be seeing The Mom back in WWE sometime in 2021.
From Underdog To Champion
Since joining WWE in 2013, Lynch has worked her way to becoming one of the top female wrestlers in the company.
After spending time in NXT, Lynch alongside Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks made her main roster debut in July 2015 as part of the Women’s Revolution.
Lynch and her fellow Horsewomen brought some much needed attention to the women’s division.
In the summer of 2016, she was drafted to Smackdown and months later became the inaugural Smackdown Women’s Champion. Her title reign would last 84 days before losing the belt to Alexa Bliss.
2018 would be a huge turning point in Lynch’s career. Nearly two years after losing the Smackdown Championship, she now had a chance to compete for it again.
However, her attempts was thwarted when Charlotte Flair earned a spot in the triple threat match and went on to win the title at SummerSlam. Following the match, an angry Becky would viciously attack her former friend.
WWE’s attempts to make Becky a heel backfired because the crowds cheered the underdog on. The storyline quickly changed to make Becky a babyface and Charlotte a heel.
Now calling herself “The Man,” Lynch proclaimed herself the toughest and best wrestler in WWE.
She would then go on to win the championship from Charlotte, but would lose it a few months later to Asuka.
However, after winning the women’s Royal Rumble in 2019, she would then challenge Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women’s Championship.
Yet, Becky’s WrestleMania moment was almost halted with a suspension and Charlotte Flair added to the match. But she worked her way back into the match, and at WrestleMania 35 she made history.
Lynch, Flair, and Rousey became the first women ever to main-event WrestleMania. After a long battle, Lynch would walk out with the RAW and Smackdown Women’s Championships.
From The Man To The Mom
Becky’s popularity and momentum continued to grow post WrestleMania 35.
She would successfully defend her title against a string of competitors including Lacey Evans and Sasha Banks.
At WrestleMania 36, Lynch defeated Shayna Baszler to retain her championship, in what would be Lynch’s final match.
On the May 11th episode of RAW, Lynch relinquished the title to women’s MITB winner Asuka, who was stunned to find the championship in the case.
Lynch then revealed her pregnancy by telling Asuka to go be a warrior while she was going to be a mom.
Becky And Seth’s Baby Girl
Becky gave birth to her and Seth Rollins daughter Roux on December 4th.
This was the first child for the couple, who began dating in February 2019 after being friends for years.
The two confirmed their relationship in May of that year, and were paired together for a brief onscreen storyline.
In August 2019, they became engaged during a trip to Hawaii. They originally planned to marry in April 2020, but the wedding was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Although, the wedding got pushed back, the couple had plenty to celebrate with the arrival of their baby girl.
Return In The Works For Becky
The big question on everyone’s mind is whether Becky will return to WWE.
The 34-year-old said wrestling is her passion and she’d love to step back in the ring.
As it turns out she may be returning soon rather than later. According to the latest reports, Becky is on her way back to WWE. It’s not known when, but the star is prepping for her comeback.
WWE had hoped to have a match between Lynch and Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 37, however it’s no telling if it’s still in the cards or if Lynch will be ready by then.
