Becky Lynch discusses stepping away from her in-ring career

Becky Lynch won the 2019 edition of the women's Royal Rumble match. She took part in the first Tables match (against Alexa Bliss at the 2016 edition of TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs), Royal Rumble match (in 2018), Last Woman Standing match (against Charlotte Flair in Evolution), Money in the Bank ladder match (at the 2017 edition of Money in the Bank) and Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match (against Asuka and Charlotte Flair at the 2018 edition of TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs) female in the history of WWE.

She was the first absolute choice in the 2019 draft. She won a Royal Rumble match and at WrestleMania 35, in what was the first time women headlined a WrestleMania event, Lynch won both the Raw Women's Championship and SmackDown Women's Championship, making her a double champion, the only woman to hold both titles simultaneously, and a four-time women's champion in WWE.

She lost the SmackDown title the following month but went on to set the record for the longest reign as Raw Women's Champion at 399 days until going on a hiatus due to pregnancy on May 11, 2020.

Becky Lynch on stepping away from her in-ring career

In a recent interview with ESPN, the Irish superstar discussed stepping away from her in-ring career: “Well, it’s tough because I’ve given my whole life to wrestling and to moving forward in my career.

But this was a choice that, for me, felt like the right one. Because it is wild that a lot of women still have to choose between their athletics or a family. And I didn’t want to have to choose that. For me, this was the right time to go and start a family, something that I’ve always wanted to do.

And so I feel like I’ve achieved nearly everything I could achieve in wrestling. I think there’s nothing more important than family. And I’m so excited to experience that and to have this other person that is half me and half the love of my life that I get to show love" - Becky Lynch said.
