A WWE star has emotionally recalled support from Becky Lynch, revealing her inspirational words from over the years.
Lana has vastly improved since the beginning of her WWE career. Originally the manager for her husband Rusev (AEW’s Miro), the former model now goes it alone, wrestling on Monday Night Raw.
With her husband leaving the company in early 2020, Lana has had a difficult time adjusting to WWE life by herself. Lana has recently opened up with talkSPORT over Becky Lynch’s support through tough times, reminding her to “toughen up!”.
Revealing that Becky still reminds her that she’s proud, Lana broke down into tears, noting that Lynch’s words have inspired her to be the person she is today.
Here is the full quote:
“Becky has helped me a lot. That would be someone that probably people don’t know about because of characters, storylines etc. But man, I have learned so much from Becky!
“I think partly, before The Man started, at live events she would be in the match and taking heat and I would be learning from her. She was so tough on me. But man, if she wasn’t tough, I wouldn’t be where I am right now.
“She was so tough [laughs] she would always be like ‘toughen up!’ and this and that.
“And now, I get texts from her saying ‘I’m so proud of you.’ She texts me every single week. I’m so thankful for that because when this whole pandemic started, I remember being so discouraged and I remember her telling me ‘you’re so strong. You’re such a strong woman. Now you’ve got to be who you are. Keep on carrying this, keep working hard, harder than anyone else so we can bring the people back that we love so much’ – and I remember those words (begins to cry).
“I’m sorry. I just remember when she was like ‘you’ve got to be the strong woman that you are’ – those words helped me not to give up, you know?
“Hearing Becky say that about me. Every single day I start my morning like ‘I’m strong, I’m resilient I’m durable – I’m going to keep going.’
“I just think it’s so important the words that we use to people and that’s such a great example of Becky giving me hope. Her texts and guidance every single week is just… I’m so thankful.”
After Lana publicly opened up about having a tough 2020, hearing how Lynch supported her friend is heart-warming.
Becky Lynch has been off of weekly WWE TV since relinquishing the Raw Women’s Championship in May 2020. She gave birth to her first child in December.
At the beginning of the month, Lana celebrated a victory over long-standing rival Nia Jax, defeating Jax in a tables match.
