Becky Lynch of WWE – Biography & Age
Becky Lynch is Irish and was born on January 30, 1987, in Dublin, Ireland, which makes her the sun sign Aquarius. Her birth name, as we found it, is Rebecca Quin, and as Becky Lynch (as she was to become famous later) grew up, she enjoyed various sports activities. She rode, swam, and also played basketball and polo.
She began her wrestling training in 2002 under the guidance of Fergal Devitt and Paul Tracey when they opened a wrestling school in Ireland. At that time Becky Lynch was seriously training with her brother Gonzo de Mondo and after 5 months of training, she began to team up with him in tag team wrestling under the ring name Rebecca Knox.
Throughout her career, Becky has competed in Europe for promotion opportunities such as the French-based Queens of Chaos, winning the title, German Stampede Wrestling, England’s One Pro Wrestling, and also the Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling in 2006.
Like any other amateur wrestler who wants to go pro, the big stage was at the WWE, and for someone as determined as Becky Lynch, nothing stood in the way of joining the WWE. On April 8, 2013, it was announced that she had signed a development deal with WWE, through which she joined the NXT division in Florida. In November of the same year, she made her debut under the ring name Becky Lynch, but she made her television debut the following year in June 2014 in an episode of NXT in which she defeated Summer Rae. Over the months, Becky took up a few feuds in which she fought and defeated as many as she could. In September 2016 she became the first SmackDown champion in Backlash and has since then shown an impressive performance in this sport.
Wrestling is a sport in which athletes are prone to injuries. Becky Lynch had her own fair share of that when she was incapacitated in 2016. However, she did not disclose what kind of injury it was, which has caused fans to wonder if it is one that could lead to her abruptly giving up the sport. For the time being, she is still active as a wrestler, and we hope that it will continue.
Like any other social woman, Becky Lynch found love in the eyes and arms of Luke Sanders, an MMA fighter in the Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC) bantamweight class. The two have been together since February 2016.
Luke was born on December 12, 1985, in Clarksville, Tennessee, which makes his birth sign Sagittarius. He made his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 81: Dillashaw vs. Cruz, while he became popular through a comeback submission win over Maximo Blanco in 2016.
Unfortunately, sometime in April 2018 Becky Lynch and Luke Sanders gave us reason to believe that they were no longer together for reasons yet to be revealed. It happened that Becky went to Instagram to delete all pictures of her with him and soon after on the social media platform. Sometime in May, however, she followed him back, only to leave him for good. Since then, none of the celebrities have commented on the reasons for their separation, but if you look at recent trends where social media has become a virtual replica of what is going on in people’s/celebrities’ lives, you can conclude that their paths have apparently been separated forever.
