Becky Lynch, the WWE superstar who recently faced defeat by losing her NXT Women's Championship to Lyra Vaklyria, is set for a different kind of showdown. She'll be trading wrestling rings for quiz buzzers as she takes on fresh competition on "Celebrity Jeopardy." According to Headline Planet, Lynch's first appearance on the iconic trivia show is slated for Wednesday, November 15.
She'll be going head-to-head with "Home Alone" star and lifelong wrestling aficionado Macaulay Culkin as well as comedian Rachel Dratch. They are part of a 27-celebrity lineup aiming to win their quarterfinal matchup and advance to the tournament semi-finals.

Lynch has been grappling with in-ring woes lately, including a feud with Xia Li that continues to unfold. However, she's no novice when it comes to the world of game shows. Lynch has previously appeared on the sports-based quiz show "Game On" in 2020, where she faced off against "Community" star Joel McHale.
Earlier this year, she was also a key participant in a special WWE episode of "Celebrity Family Feud," teaming up with WWE colleagues like Bayley, Natalya, Liv Morgan, and Alexa Bliss. They faced off against a team led by Lynch’s husband, Seth Rollins, and included The New Day and former WWE star Dolph Ziggler.
Adding a new layer to this story, sources close to WWE confirm that Lynch is planning to donate any winnings from "Celebrity Jeopardy" to charity, although the specific charity remains undisclosed. This philanthropic gesture could potentially earn her not just accolades but also some goodwill amid her recent challenges in the WWE.
The Irish-born wrestler's upcoming stint on "Celebrity Jeopardy" comes as the latest in a string of WWE personalities entering the game show arena. The Miz and Brie Bella took their turns on "The Wheel" last December, while Xavier Woods recently appeared on "Celebrity Wheel of Fortune." Becky Lynch’s appearance on "Celebrity Jeopardy" is expected to draw a large viewership given her immense popularity and the existing crossover between WWE fans and trivia enthusiasts.
Will this be the stage where Lynch finds her mojo back, or will she face another round of tough questions, both literal and metaphorical? One thing is certain: all eyes will be on that iconic studio come November 15.
