The backstory

It has been exactly a year since Becky Lynch donned the gimmick of "The Man", and completely turned her life upside down in the process. Today, Lynch is regarded by many as one of the biggest Superstars of this era. She recently bagged a spot on the cover of WWE 2K20, alongside Roman Reigns, and is currently one of the most popular WWE Superstars on social media.

As unbelievable as it sounds, there was a time when Lynch wanted to quit this business, as it just wasn't working. An old interview has resurfaced online, which features Lynch talking to Lilian Garcia about a call that she made to her mom while pondering on quitting the Pro Wrestling industry.

The interview

On this episode of 'Making Their Way To The Ring' with Lilian Garcia, Lynch opened up on a string of topics, but none were as heartwarming and emotionally draining as the one involving a phone conversation between Lynch and her mom. Remember Lynch was still more than a year away from becoming 'The Man' when this interview took place.

And, I was in New York, and I remember calling her on the payphone. 'Mom, please I wanna come home, I'm sorry. I'll get a real job but I wanna come home, please.' She was like, 'no, you're not gonna come home, you're gonna see this through', and I just remember being in tears like this. And I think that was one of the best things that she had done.

Check out the conversation in the tweet below:

The aftermath

Lynch was a mainstay on the WWE roster at the time this interview was taken, and steadily kept working hard towards her goals. At SummerSlam 2018, she turned heel on Charlotte Flair, and the rest is history!
