WWE Star Says Becky Lynch ‘Made It Very Clear’ She Wanted To Help New Talent WWE

WWE Raw star Lyra Valkyria has commented on how Becky Lynch has inspired her over the years, ahead of Lynch’s contract expiry.

There’s currently a lot of uncertainty surrounding Lynch’s wrestling future, with the Man’s current contract set to expire this weekend.

Speaking with TalkSport, Lyra Valkyria credited Lynch as one of her main inspirations when becoming a wrestler.

Valkyria noted:

“She’s been massively influential to me.

“She was the reason I started. Just seeing her doing her Irish dancing that she’s now very vocally very ashamed of!

“Honestly, seeing her do that made me realise: ‘Irish person, oh my God, how did she get there?!’

“That is what set the ball rolling for me. Even that ‘shameful debut’ as she calls it, it had such a massive effect, because here I am, in a way, because of that.”

Recalling meeting Lynch for the first time, Valkyria noted that Lynch made it very clear that she wanted to help the next generation:

“I only met her quite a few years into my career, she was actually home filming her 24 Documentary for WWE.

“She came home to the gym that I train in and that was my first time meeting her and I got quite overwhelmed at the time.

“It’s not like we were instantly pals but she made it very clear she was there to help the next generation and was massively on board with being there for whoever was following behind her.

“She was very approachable and lovely from the beginning.”

Valkyria notably defeated Lynch for the NXT Championship at the October 2023 Halloween Havoc show.
