A report came out earlier this week about how WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has picked up interest from the entertainment industry as of late.
Per the report, it’s due to her ability to connect with an audience. Our own Paul Daivs is reporting that Paul Heyman has been a big influence on her, which has helped her connect with fans. For more on that and another WWE star who is gaining interest in Hollywood, click here.
Lynch spoke with TMZ Sports about her appearance on the season 5 premiere of Showtime’s Billions this Sunday as well as being featured in a major national women’s magazine.
During the interview, she spoke about the guidance that she has received from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena, two WWE stars who have transitioned from the pro wrestling business into acting.
Lynch stated about The Rock, “he’s actually been very helpful and put me in contact with who my agent is right now. He’s been very giving. I think they all are because they’ve all been there. They’ve been there and there already to look after the next generation.”
She then spoke about how John Cena “ has been so great to me and so generous with his time and advice. [He] checks up on me and what I’m doing now. I think everybody wants to see the next generation move to where they’ve been.”
Lynch stated that they don’t have to do that for her as they’re both busy but they’re so generous with their time and advice. She thinks it’s a testament to who they are but also well as the family environment that wrestling creates.
Lynch also noted later in the interview that there’s more to come in the next year for her outside of WWE.
