Rebecca Quin (born 30 January 1987) is an Irish professional wrestler and actress currently signed to WWE, where she performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Becky Lynch. She began training as a professional wrestler under Fergal Devitt and Paul Tracey in June 2002,[5] making her debut five months later.[2] Initially working in Ireland and occasionally teaming with her brother, she soon expanded her career into the rest of Europe on the independent circuit as Rebecca Knox, wrestling regularly for the France-based Queens of Chaos promotion, where she won the World Queens of Chaos Championship in 2006.[6] She also wrestled for England's One Pro Wrestling and Germany's German Stampede Wrestling.[2] She competed in the SuperGirls Wrestling promotion (an offshoot of Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling), where she was the inaugural SuperGirls Champion and held the championship for ten months and two days.[7] She also appeared at ChickFight III, where she made it to the second round of the tournament.[4] In 2006, she debuted for the all-female Shimmer Women Athletes promotion and was involved in a series of matches with Daizee Haze, including an acclaimed two-out-of-three falls match.[8]

In September 2006, Quin suffered a head injury during a match in Germany and was diagnosed with possible damage to her eighth cranial nerve.[9] She was scheduled to return to wrestling in 2008, but no-showed the event, stating she no longer felt that wrestling was the right option for her at that time.[10] She later returned to Shimmer as a manager in 2011,[11] before signing a contract with WWE in 2013.[12] Following her arrival on the main roster in July 2015,[13] she became the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion at Backlash in September 2016.[14]

Early life[edit]

Rebecca Quin[2][12] was born in Limerick[15][16] on 30 January 1987.[17] She was a fan of professional wrestling as a child and used to watch it with her brother,[5][17] who has also wrestled under the ring name Gonzo de Mondo.[17] She was involved in horse riding, swimming, and basketball.[17] Quin attended university to study philosophy, history and politics, but said she "really hated it" and dropped out.[17][18] She planned to return to college to study health and exercise studies.[18] Prior to beginning to train as a wrestler, she stated that she had been "going down a bad path" involving alcohol, but wrestling helped her give it up.[17]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Training and early career (2002–2005)[edit]

As a teenager, Quin heard that Fergal Devitt and Paul Tracey were opening a wrestling school in Ireland.[5][17] In June 2002, she and her brother began training there.[5] She made her professional wrestling debut five months later in November, using the ring name Rebecca Knox.[2][17] She teamed with her brother in mixed tag team matches during the early part of her career.[17] She also trained at British professional wrestling promotion NWA UK Hammerlock.[2]

European promotions (2005–2008)[edit]

During the early part of her career, Knox wrestled in Ireland and lost to English wrestler Eden Black at an NWA Ireland show in Dublin.[19] On 13 May 2005, Knox was defeated by English wrestler Skye at Queens of Chaos' inaugural show and DVD taping in Toulouse.[20] On 7 August, Knox appeared at a Fighting Spirit Federation (FSF) show, where she competed in a four-way match for the World Queens of Chaos Championship against the champion Nikita, as well as Jersey and Sweet Saraya.[21] When Nikita vacated the World Queens of Chaos Championship, Knox defeated Saraya to win it on 4 June 2006 at a FSF show in Chouilly.[22] She held the championship for approximately two and a half months, successfully defending it against Skye on 10 September, before dropping it to Saraya at a World Association of Wrestling (WAW) show in Great Yarmouth on 23 September.[23][6]

During 2006, Knox competed for One Pro Wrestling.[24] On 10 September, Knox wrestled for the International Wrestling Zone promotion, defeating Emil Sitoci and Robbie Mireno in a three-way match.[25] On 26 September, Knox competed for German Stampede Wrestling, where she lost to Finnish wrestler Kisu.[2] and suffered a cut above her eye, for which she received stitches.[2] Since the injury, Knox suffered from headaches, vision problems and loud buzzing in her left ear and was also diagnosed with possible damage to her eighth cranial nerve, and as a result canceled all her bookings for the rest of the year.[2][26] Knox was expected to participate at a ChickFight television taping on 4 May 2008, but was removed from the show after no-showing a Shimmer Women Athletes show, stating that she did not believe that wrestling was the correct career choice for her at that time.[10][27]

North American promotions (2005–2008, 2011)[edit]

In 2005, Knox joined the Canadian promotion SuperGirls Wrestling, an all-female offshoot of Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW), first appearing on ECCW shows, where she immediately began feuding with Miss Chevius, defeating her in Surrey, British Columbia on 17 May, before losing to her in Port Coquitlam a month later on 17 June.[28][29] The following night, Knox teamed with Calum Macbeth to defeat Miss Chevius and Tony Tisoy in a mixed tag team match in Vancouver.[29] On 24 June, Knox defeated Miss Chevius at an ECCW show in Surrey, British Columbia to become the inaugural SuperGirls Champion.[7][30] Knox successfully defended the championship against LuFisto on 23 September at the inaugural SuperGirls DVD tapings, when she hit LuFisto with the championship belt and her manager Scotty Mac powerbombed LuFisto through a table.[31][32] She also successfully defended the championship twice the following night, first against Cheerleader Melissa, after Mac superkicked Melissa, and then against Madison after illegally using the ring ropes for leverage during the pin.[29][32] At ECCW's tenth anniversary show in January 2006, she defeated El Phantasmo in an intergender match.[33] In March, Knox feuded with Nikki Matthews, defeating her at the ECCW television tapings on 25 March and teaming with Gurv Sihra and Sid Sylum to defeat Matthews, Phantasmo and Kyle O'Reilly on 31 March.[34][35] On 8 April, Knox defeated Veronika.[36] Knox held the SuperGirls Championship for ten months and two days, before eventually losing it to Lisa Moretti on 21 April 2006.[7][37]

On 14 October 2005, Knox appeared at a New England Championship Wrestling (NECW) event in Framingham, Massachusetts, where she competed in a four-way match that was won by Violet Flame.[38] Later that month, Knox participated in All Pro Wrestling (APW)'s third ChickFight tournament in Hayward, California; she defeated Morgan in the first round on 28 October, but lost to eventual winner Mariko Yoshida in the second round later that night.[4] The following night, she teamed with Cheerleader Melissa and Tiffany in a losing effort to Rain, Morgan and Hailey Hatred in a six-woman tag team match at an APW show.[39] She also appeared for the AWA Pinnacle promotion on 21 January and 26 February 2006, with the first being when she acted as the referee in a match between Caden Matthews and Christopher Ryseck, helping Ryseck to win by hitting Matthews with a chair.[40] On 26 February, she and Ryseck were defeated by Matthews in a handicap match in Pacific, Washington.[41]

Knox began working for the all-female promotion Shimmer Women Athletes in 2006; in her debut match for the promotion at the DVD tapings of Volume 3, she defeated Allison Danger on 12 February, and established herself as a heel by faking an injury, while in the main event of the Volume 4 DVD tapings later that night, she lost to Daizee Haze, provoking a feud between the two women.[42] At the Volume 5 tapings on 21 May, she attacked Haze with a release German suplex and later that evening defeated her in a two-out-of-three falls match.[43][44] The match lasted 29 minutes and was later described by promoter Dave Prazak as "probably the best women's match [that he'd] seen on U.S. soil in years, if not ever".[8] In a repeat of her debut match for the promotion, Knox defeated Danger in a Pure Wrestling Rules match at the tapings for Shimmer Volume 6.[43] A 60-minute Iron Woman match against Haze at Shimmer's Volume 7 taping was cancelled due to the legit injury she sustained in Germany.[9] Knox was booked for a Shimmer event on 26 April 2008, but no-showed, stating that she did not believe that wrestling was the correct career choice for her at that time.[10]

Knox returned to Shimmer on 26 March 2011 as the manager of the real life mother-daughter tag team of Saraya and Britani Knight.[11]

Japanese promotions (2005–2006)[edit]

In November 2005, Knox completed a two-week tour of Japan, as she competed for International Women's Grand Prix, teaming up with Aja Kong and Gran Hamada in the main event on each show, with her team being undefeated.[2] During this tour on 9 November, Knox won an eighteen-person battle royal in Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.[18] She later singled out this tour as the highlight of her career.[18] She returned to Japan in August 2006, defeating Yuri Urai in a singles match on 13 August,[45] before teaming with Bullfight Sora to defeat Gami and Kyoko Kimura, while she teamed with Yuki Miyazaki to defeat the team of La Amapola and Kimura on 18 August,[46] and then losing to Kimura in a singles match two days later.[2]

WWE[edit]

Beginnings in NXT (2013–2015)[edit]

Lynch during an NXT house show in March 2015

In April 2013, Quin signed a two-year developmental deal with WWE and had moved to Florida to report to their developmental territory NXT.[12] On 29 August, her new ring name was revealed as Becky Lynch, and she debuted at an NXT live event in November.[2][1]

Lynch made her televised in-ring debut on the 26 June 2014 episode of NXT, defeating Summer Rae.[47] The next week, Becky teamed up with Bayley in a losing effort to the BFFs: Beautiful Fierce Females (NXT Women's Champion Charlotte and Sasha Banks) in a tag team match.[48] Lynch spent the next few months in non-title matches against Charlotte, losing three in a row.[49][50][51] On the 23 October episode of NXT, after being told to make herself relevant, Lynch aligned herself with Sasha Banks by attacking Bayley, turning heel.[52] Known as Team B.A.E. (Best at Everything), the alliance started to disintegrate when Sasha cost Lynch a match against Bayley in February 2015.[53][54]

At NXT TakeOver: Rival, Lynch participated in a fatal four-way match for the NXT Women's Championship, which was won by Sasha Banks.[55] On the 22 April episode of NXT, Lynch defeated Bayley and Charlotte in a triple threat match to earn a title match against Sasha,[56] which she lost at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable. During the match, Lynch debuted a new look resembling Magic: The Gathering character Chandra Nalaar.[57][58] The match received widespread critical acclaim, with praise going to both performers.[59][60]

Women's Revolution (2015–2016)[edit]

Lynch made her official main roster debut the on 13 July episode of Raw, as a fan favorite, along with Charlotte and Sasha Banks, after Stephanie McMahon called for a "revolution" in the WWE Divas division, which led Lynch and Charlotte allying with Paige, who was feuding with Team Bella (Alicia Fox and The Bella Twins), while Banks allied with Naomi and Tamina, leading to a brawl between the three teams.[13] The trio of Paige, Lynch and Charlotte, originally dubbed Submission Sorority, was renamed to Team PCB, after the initials of each wrestler.[61] Lynch made her in-ring début on the 20 July episode of Raw, where she and Paige lost to Banks and Naomi,[62][63] but she was able to earn her first singles victory on the 28 July episode of Main Event over Brie Bella.[64] The three teams ultimately faced off at SummerSlam on 23 August in a three-team elimination match, in which Lynch pinned Brie Bella to win the match for PCB.[65]

On the 31 August episode of Raw, all members of PCB competed in the first ever "Divas Beat the Clock challenge", in which Charlotte was named the number one contender to Nikki Bella's Divas Championship,[66] which she won at Night of Champions on 20 September,[67] and the following night on Raw, Paige turned on her partners during Charlotte's celebration, claiming that Charlotte was only there because of her father Ric Flair and called Lynch the "least relevant" member of the group.[68] Throughout October, Paige tried to reconcile with Lynch and Charlotte[69][70] only to attack them, officially disbanding Team PCB in the process.[71] On the 2 November episode of Raw, Lynch was pinned by Paige in a fatal four-way to earn a title match for Charlotte's Divas Championship.[72] The following week on Raw, Lynch gained revenge by defeating Paige.[73]

"Lynch is the one who was the key to the initially failing "Divas Revolution" turning around. Her program with Charlotte may have been the best booked on the main roster. And it worked".

Dave Meltzer in February 2016[74]

On the 30 November episode of Raw, Charlotte started displaying heel traits after she feigned a leg injury to defeat Lynch, followed by a distraction provided by her father.[75] Throughout December, Lynch and Charlotte's friendship continued to strain[76][77][78][79][80] and after Lynch defeated her on the 4 January 2016 episode Raw, Charlotte attacked her and solidify her villainous turn.[81] Lynch challenged Charlotte for her Divas Championship three days later on SmackDown[82] and at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on 24 January, but lost both matches after interference from Ric Flair.[83]

In February, Lynch became involved with her former rival Sasha Banks's feud with Naomi and Tamina,[84][85][86][87] leading to Lynch allying with Sasha to defeat Naomi and Tamina in a tag team match at Fastlane on 21 February.[88] The following night on Raw Lynch and Banks were scheduled to compete in a number one contender's match, with the winner facing Charlotte for the Divas Championship at WrestleMania 32,[89] but the match ended in a double pin.[90] A rematch on the following SmackDown ended in a no contest when Charlotte attacked both Lynch and Banks.[91] As a result, Charlotte was scheduled to defend her title in a triple threat against both Lynch and Banks on WrestleMania 32.[92] At the event, Lynch was unsuccessful in capturing the newly-created WWE Women's Championship (which replaced the Diva's Championship).[93][94][95]

After WrestleMania, Lynch began a feud with Emma. She lost to her on the 2 May episode of Raw,[96] but gained revenge, along with Natalya, by defeating her and Charlotte three days later on SmackDown.[97] On the 9 May episode of Raw, Emma's NXT's tag team partner Dana Brooke attacked Lynch during a backstage segment.[98] Lynch lost to Dana after being distracted by Emma on the 12 May episode of SmackDown,[99] and again on the 16 May episode of Raw.[100] After Lynch and Natalya were defeated by Dana Brooke and Charlotte at Money in the Bank, Lynch was attacked by Natalya, who turned heel in the process.[101] After multiple attacks between both women,[102][103][104] Lynch was defeated by Natalya at Battleground, [105]

After being drafted to the SmackDown brand during the 2016 WWE draft,[106][107] Lynch defeated Natalya on 26 July, before being confronted by Smackdown's female roster.[108] On the 16 August episode of SmackDown, Lynch and Carmella defeated Alexa Bliss and Natalya, after a distraction by Eva Marie and Naomi.[109] At SummerSlam between Lynch, Carmella and Naomi were defeated by Alexa Bliss, Natalya and Nikki Bella (who replaced the suspended Eva Marie).[110]

At Backlash, Lynch won a six-pack elimination challenge by last eliminating Carmella to become the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion.[14] her first title defense against Alexa Bliss, scheduled for No Mercy, was postponed due to a legit out-of-ring injury.[111] On the 8 November episode of SmackDown, Lynch successfully defended the title, albeit in controversial fashion (the referee did not see Alexa's foot on the rope when she submitted to her finishing maneuver, the Dis-arm-her).[112] At Survivor Series, Lynch was the last woman from Team SmackDown to be eliminated during the Survivor Series elimination match.[113]

At TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs on 4 December, Lynch lost the championship to Alexa Bliss in a tables match.[114] As Alexa kept avoiding Lynch, the former champion masked herself as La Luchadora and defeated Alexa in a non-title match.[115] On the 17 January 2017 episode of SmackDown, Lynch challenged Alexa fo the championship in a steel cage match, during which a villainess wearing the La Luchadora costume (later revealed as the returning Mickie James) attacked Lynch and helped Alexa towards victory.[116] At the 2017 Royal Rumble pre-show, Lynch, Naomi and Nikki Bella defeated Alexa Bliss, Mickie James and Natalya.[117] At Elimination Chamber, Lynch defeated Mickie James,[118] but lost to her in a rematch on the 14 February episode of SmackDown.[119] Lynch also failed to defeat Bliss for the vacant SmackDown Women's Championship the following week,[120] as well as losing a six-pack challenge for the title at WrestleMania 33 on 2 April.[121]
