Becky Lynch is expecting her first child.
The Man appeared during tonight’s RAW from the WWE Performance Center and announced that she is pregnant. The segment opened with Lynch coming out with the women’s MITB briefcase. She got emotional and cried before bringing Asuka out. She then revealed that Asuka hasn’t been able to open the briefcase because she was the only one with the combination. Lynch opened the briefcase and the RAW Women’s Title belt was inside. Lynch then confirmed that Asuka is the new RAW Women’s Champion as Sunday’s MITB Ladder Match wasn’t for a future women’s title shot, it was for the RAW Women’s Title.
Asuka danced around and came back to the ring where Lynch was waiting. That’s when Lynch announced that she was going to be a mother because she can’t fight anymore. Lynch then finally smiled and showed some happiness while embracing Asuka. Lynch made her emotional exit up the ramp, told fans she will miss them, and left to the back as Asuka continued her celebration.
RAW returned from the commercial break and we saw Lynch being congratulated by several Superstars in the backstage area.
Lynch has been in a relationship with fiance Seth Rollins and it’s believed that they are expecting this child together.
Stay tuned for updates on Lynch, Asuka and the RAW Women’s Title.
Below are a few shots from tonight’s segment on RAW:
The Man took to Twitter after the segment and sent a special message to WWE fans.
She wrote, “I have no idea what happens from here, but I do know that you’ve made all my dreams come true. I entered the PC in 2013 not knowing anyone, I’ll leave that same building tonight with my new family. Thank you all so much.”
Lynch, who has been engaged to marry Seth Rollins for several months now, had been champion since the WrestleMania 35 main event in 2019. This is Asuka’s first reign with the red brand title.

Becky Lynch on When She Found Out She Was Pregnant
Lynch spoke with People Magazine before the RAW announcement aired and confirmed that she and fiancé Rollins are expecting together.
The 33 year old Lynch also revealed that she is due in December.
“I’ve always, always wanted kids,” Lynch told People. “I’m just so career-focused that it became one of those things that, when you’re chasing a dream for so long, I always wondered, ‘Am I going to get around to it? Is it going to happen for me?’ ”
Lynch said those dreams began to fall into place when she and Rollins, who is also 33, began dating.
“When we got together, things started to look a lot clearer and I knew he was the person that I wanted to have kids with — that this was going to happen and it was just a matter of when,” Lynch explained. “Seth is one of the smartest people I know. He’s just got an insane work ethic, insane integrity and he is the most generous, kindhearted person. He’s very, very focused on what the right thing to do is and always looking to grow and correct himself and be better so he can be the best person for me, and now, the best father.”
Lynch and Rollins first found out they were expecting after The Man took a number of pregnancy tests in April. The first test came out negative, but Lynch followed her instincts and bought a digital test, which confirmed her speculation.
“I took the first one wrong,” Lynch recalled. “Then I took a few more tests until I got a digital one that just said the word ‘Pregnant.’ I was with Seth at the time and he just threw his hands up in the air, all excited!”
Lynch said the news came with a wealth of emotions.
“Of course, you start to become nervous, too, because you’ve lived your whole life as thinking for yourself and yourself alone,” she said. “Now you have this whole other person that you have to look after and grow, and make sure that you’re doing everything that you possibly can to make sure that they are the healthiest and the safest that they can be. But we’re just so, so excited. Just so excited for how much love we’re going to give that little thing.”
Regarding her return to the ring, Lynch said she won’t be making a decision any time soon.
“It’s just such a joyous time and then such a sad time too. I loved this and I’ve given my life to this. I’ve achieved everything that I want to achieve in this business,” she said. “I don’t know what the next chapter is because I only know what it’s like to think for myself when I’m by myself. So I don’t know what it’ll look like and how my priorities shift and what I’m going to want in the future. So, everything’s open.”
Lynch also confirmed that she and Rollins had planned to get married at the end of May, but wedding plans were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’ll get around to that,” Lynch says of the big wedding. “There’s no rush, and now we’ll have a little flower girl or a page boy.”
