WWE news: NXT UK star Toni Storm reveals why Becky Lynch inspires her – EXCLUSIVE

Lynch is one of WWE‘s hottest acts as she has gained tremendous popularity and has earned admiration from various wrestling legends as well as other sports heroes, such as UFC greats Conor McGregor and Cris Cyborg.

The Man’s stunning in-ring skills, explosive promos and incredible passion have attracted a lot of attention and that has taken the women’s division to a completely different level.

Quite a lot has been going on:

How Becky Lynch Became the Biggest Star in WWE and What’s Next in 2019

2018 has brought change to WWE in ways no one could have expected. No one better represents that change than Becky Lynch. This time last year, The Irish Lass Kicker was a footnote on SmackDown Live, barely appearing on television and rarely picking up victories.

Now, she is at the head of the most impressive women’s division in WWE’history, redefining what the women’s evolution has meant. The Man is the biggest name in wrestling, and she recently main-evented the last pay-per-view of the year, WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.

It’s shocking to look back upon the year Lynch has had, changing the game in a matter of months after years of poor booking looked to have doomed her to a career of playing second fiddle. Sometimes, all it takes is one chance for talent to shine through.
