WWE Superstar Becky Lynch's current contract with the company is nearing its end. With her deal expiring soon, wrestling legend Bully Ray offered his thoughts on The Man's future, sparking even more intrigue.

The 37-year-old star lost her Women's World Championship to Liv Morgan at the King and Queen of the Ring Premium Live Event on May 25 in Saudi Arabia. Lynch also failed to recapture the title on this week's edition of Monday Night RAW in a Steel Cage Match.

According to the reports, Big Time Becks' current contract with WWE is set to expire in the "next week or so." Despite being advertised for the June 1, 2024, live show in New York, sources suggest she is not appearing at the event.

While speaking on an episode of the Busted Open Radio, one-half of Team 3D mentioned that Becky Lynch might be taking a well-deserved break from the ring to focus on her three-year-old daughter. Bully Ray speculated that the former Women's World Champion and WWE could come to a mutual understanding where she would take a temporary leave of absence before negotiating a new deal.

"Maybe she needs to recharge her batteries. I think the speculation on everybody's mind is if Becky Lynch is not in the WWE and her contract expires, what could possibly happen? Both sides, if you cannot come to an agreement right now on money, both sides are walking away with a handshake, saying, 'Alright. Let's take a break from one another, agreeing that we're not going to talk to anybody else,'" he said. [H/T: Wrestling Inc.]
