Why is Becky Lynch called The Man? Raw women’s champion shares reasoning for nickname



Becky Lynch has been one of the top WWE wrestlers in the last year or so.

The Man has taken the women’s division to another level and has had some incredible bouts with Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and even Sasha Banks.

The Irishwoman beat Flair in a Last woman standing match at Evolution and started calling herself ‘The Man’ around that time.

She suffered a concussion and a broken nose thanks to Nia Jax. However, Lynch just stood in the crowd with blood all over her face as she goaded Ronda Rousey.

However, the Irish lass kicker had a great response to this question and claimed she wanted to take over the WWE.

Becky Lynch The Man certainly has done some things in the ring and she possibly is the best female wrestler in the WWE currently.

The Man hasn’t only been doing great stuff in the ring, but even outside it.

The Lass kicker certainly has come a long way since training in Ireland back in 2002.
