Becky Lynch recently highlighted her real-life friendship with Big E. She praised his sense of humor and said the WWE Superstar has a "calming energy" around him.
Lynch is currently the SmackDown Women's Champion, while Big E won his first WWE Championship by defeating Bobby Lashley on this week's episode of RAW. Given how genuinely likable he is on and off the screen, many superstars from the past and present have congratulated the New Day member.
Becky Lynch was one of several people to do so, and she said the following about Big E's real-life demeanor during WWE's The Bump:
"E is the best. He has talked me off many a ledge, many a ledge when I was down and couldn't get my foot in WWE, E was always there to make me laugh because he's one of the funniest dudes you'll ever meet, and be so kind and patient." Lynch continued, "He's got this calming energy that when you sit beside him, he just makes you feel better and calm and hopeful. This new era of E in WWE brings a lot of hope to not only the company, the business, but the world." (H/T - Fightful)

Becky Lynch to defend her SmackDown Women's Championship soon
Despite Becky Lynch's words of praise for Big E during The Bump, make no mistake, she is currently the most conceited she has ever been as an on-screen character.
The popular superstar won the SmackDown Women's Championship from Bianca Belair at SummerSlam 2021 in 26 seconds. Since then, Belair has been presented as the hero, while Lynch hasn't exactly had a friendly rivalry with the WrestleMania 37 main-eventer.
The two are set to collide in a rematch at this year's Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26.
