The newest buzz in the rumor mill would be no other than the former WWE Women's World Champion, Becky Lynch, who now basically became the talk of the town in terms of speculation about what will be her next move since her WWE contract has expired.

A cornerstone of the WWE women's division for more than a decade and surefire Hall of Famer, Lynch has notably not re-signed with the promotion, with her deal coming to a close imminently. Recently, reports arose that Lynch would become a free agent as of June 1, and whispers of her signing a huge deal have altogether died down.

Hopefully, this does nothing but fan the flames of theories and fan discussions of what her next career move could be—particularly with AEW.

Lynch's Hiatus Plans

It was through him that, unlike the mutterings, Wade Keller—the editor of PW Torch, who is among the leading sources of information when it comes to pro wrestling matters—shed additional light on the matter.

It has been clarified that Lynch is not thinking of making a move to AEW right now. According to information from trusted sources, Lynch is actually planning to stay away from the wrestling scene for a while. A detailed account of the reason she is going to take time off has not yet been shared, thus leaving a stroke of suspense in her future plans.

She was, however, undeniably still loyal to WWE after WrestleMania 40. She was due to start time off reportedly, but all that changed when an injury, which unexpectedly hit a fellow-wrestler Rhea Ripley, with WWE finding itself in a literal necessity of needing to bring Lynch back earlier.

Lynch was written to return to the spotlight with Morgan in the lead-up to a recent match for King and Queen of the Ring. Lynch, in an impressive but miserable effort, lost her world title to Morgan with a huge amount of help from Dominik Mysterio, as the finish didn't go her way.

What followed was an emotional scene, with Lynch getting a standing ovation from the audience. Reflecting on the career run, Lynch had first signed to WWE in April 2013. She made her NXT debut in June 2014 and eventually moved to the main roster in July 2015.

This, coming off such a lush history and solid commitment to WWE over so many years, is truly a once-in-a-lifetime move to leave them at this point on one's career path. With that, all eyes in the wrestling community are peeled to see what Lynch actually does next—in a matter of speculation and excitement.

Whether going on to build that legendary status within WWE further or somewhere else in the ring, one thing is sure: an impression on the wrestling world has already been made.
