The Man has a new outlook (Picture: WWE)
WWE superstar Becky Lynch has revealed she’s already trying to take a step back on Twitter and focus on ’empowering women’ since becoming a mum for the first time.
The SmackDown Women’s Champion, who is set to put her title on the line against Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia next week, admitted she’s been given a different perspective since welcoming baby Roux into the world in December 2020 with her husband Seth Rollins.
The typically outspoken star told WWE UK: ‘One thing I find I look at differently now [that I am mother] is social media and how that affects people, and how it affects young people in particular.
‘You may have noticed but I don’t really post as much anymore, and it’s very much around the narrative of how we empower women to use our voices in an appropriate way, especially when there is so much noise all the time.
‘I think I am very much still trying to figure all that out, but I think anything I do has that much more weight to it now I am a mom.’
She urged other women to trust in themselves and their instincts, noting that tactic has always served her well in life.
She added: ‘I think it is all about being true to yourself and trusting your gut. As women, and as people, we often don’t trust ourselves enough and I don’t know where that comes from.
‘As you grow up, we are always told to be careful, and don’t do this or that, but I do think you have an inner voice that never serves you wrong.
‘I don’t recall ever thinking in my life that I wish I didn’t trust my gut. Once we follow our intuition is always brings us to good places.’

As well as being a mum for the first time, Becky’s attention is also on putting her gold on the line at WWE Crown Jewel, and she has promised a ‘very special’ match which she reckons will ‘steal the show’.
‘Firstly, people can expect me to walk out there still the Smackdown Women’s Champion,’ she predicted. ‘In addition to that they can expect a barnstormer of a match.
‘Any time you get myself, Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair – three of the best in the industry regardless of gender – you know you are going to be watching something very special and there is no doubt that match will steal the show.’
*WWE Crown Jewel airs Thursday, October 21 at 5pm on the WWE Network.
