Becky Lynch’s resilience: WWE star reveals gritty arm injury update on path to recovery



Becky Lynch is as tough as they come in the wrestling business and she provided an update on her arm injury that she suffered recently 

WWE NXT Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has provided an update on the arm injury she suffered at WWE NXT No Mercy.

The Man’ was up against Tiffany Stratton in an Extreme Rules match, and she could keep hold of the belt.

However, this was a tough match for both competitors. Quite a few weapons were used, and some high-flying and dangerous moves were also performed by both stars.

Lynch just about picked up the win, but it came at a cost. ‘The Man’, as Lynch is called, suffered a laceration on her arm which needed 11 stitches

The WWE star recently posted a photo of the injured arm on X (formerly known as Twitter), where the stitches can still be seen.

Lynch’s message doesn’t seem all that great, especially with the smiley. The WWE star could miss a few more days of action as her wound heals, but this further proof that Lynch is one of the toughest WWE stars in the business.

An Extreme Rules match is one of the most brutal stipulations in the wrestling world. And, it comes as no surprise that both Stratton and Lynch were using all sorts of weapons on each other.

Lynch featuring on NXT was a bit of a surprise since she is one of the biggest names in the business.

NXT is often seen as the perfect arena to nurture talent before moving to the main roster. However, Lynch starring in the promotion has been a bit of a ratings boost for the Black and Gold brand.

Further, with her becoming the champion, Lynch will be seen on TV time and again, which is another bonus for the brand.

She isn’t the only one featuring on NXT regularly. Dominik Mysterio is also a constant feature on NXT with his on-screen partner, Rhea Ripley. 

This isn’t the first time Lynch has shown how resilient she is in the face of adversity. A few years back, she suffered a nose injury that led to the creation of ‘The Man’ persona. 

That is something she has carried for a long time and this was on show again on NXT.


Becky Lynch’s injury proves that wrestling is a dangerous business, and serious problems could occur.

The stitches on Lynch’s arm still need some more time to heal, and it is to be seen if she regularly appears on NXT in the coming weeks.

‘The Man’ could take up a non-wrestling role, and there is a guarantee she will make the most of this injury by using it as part of her character.
