#4 WWE romantic angle that didn't work: Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch
In real life, WWE Superstars Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins are engaged and expecting their first child following years of close friendship that developed into a relationship. The pair kept their relationship under wraps for quite some time (although fans speculated after spotting them out and about together) before revealing it in summer 2019.
Around this time, their real-life relationship was mentioned continuously on RAW, where they were both holding championship titles - Lynch was the WWE RAW Women's Champion, and Rollins was the WWE Universal Champion. They began pairing up together in mixed tag team matches, often coming out on top.
The references to the couple's real-life relationship started to become heavy-handed, which didn't sit well with fans, and it didn't quite fit with their current characters either. Their couples feud with Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans felt chunky and full of missteps, and Lynch and Rollins deserved better than what went on at this time.
After the storyline wrapped up, Becky Lynch has often expressed her own negative feelings towards the storyline and admitted that she was initially apprehensive for their relationship to also be on television.Published 10 Nov 2020, 20:35 IST
