In 2018 and 2019 Becky Lynch was elected as Female Superstar of the Year and in 2018 she was also awarded the Match of the Year award (against Charlotte Flair ad Evolution) by WWE; readers of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and Wrestling Observer News voted her Woman of the Year, while CBS Sport named her Wrestler of the Year.
On August 5, 2019, WWE and 2K Sports announced the presence of Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns on the cover of the WWE 2K20 game; Becky, therefore, is the first female superstar to be featured on the game cover. Speaking with Newsweek, she reflected on keeping motivated atop the division: “I can sit back on my laurels, but I just love this, I love this game.
I love being the best at something, and right now I’m proving that. I’m riding high. It’s a great feeling. Nobody wants to give that up. Nobody wants to come down the mountain when they see the view and scenery.
It’s beautiful up there. That keeps me motivated”. On having confidence issues, Lynch added: “It was a doubt. I doubted how good I was. Maybe I wasn’t as good as I thought I was. Maybe all the haters were right? Maybe I was a flash in the pan.
Maybe I’ve just been lucky every single match in an entire year? That’s just bulls**t that I can’t believe I’m saying it. But I had that doubt. I was walking around with my head down contemplating if I was good enough. I needed something to slap me out of it”.
