WWE superstar Becky Lynch has revealed the ring names which she almost used before deciding on “Becky Lynch”.
Becky Lynch recently spoke with Sports Illustrated and revealed the names WWE almost went with before going with “Becky Lynch”.
“When I was coming up with my name in WWE, I came up with a bunch of mad Irish names that I thought were cool,” she said. “Since my last name is Quin, I tried to get that in there as a first name. Quin Chulainn was one, and that was based off the mythological person from Irish mythology. Cú Chulainn is a badass character in Irish mythology.”
“They wanted a name associated with my own name, like Rebecca. So I became Becky, and two of the names that came back to me were Becky Lynch and something like Madeleine. I was like, ‘I didn’t even submit that, I don’t know how it got in there.’ It made me think of that TV show Madeleine. Anyway, I said no to that, and the other name that came back was Robin Daly. I actually did like that, but I thought it would be better to have a part of my own name in there, so Becky Lynch it was.” she continued.
Lynch is currently on maternity leave from the WWE due to pregnancy. The 33-year-old is without a doubt an all-time great when it comes to the WWE Women’s Division – A former RAW women’s champion and three-time Smackdown women’s champion. In 2019 she notably won the Women’s Royal Rumble match, as well as competing and emerging victorious in the first ever women’s main event of Wrestlemania.
