Rebecca Quin[2] (born 30 January 1987)[3] is an Irish professional wrestler currently signed to WWE under the ring name Becky Lynch, performing on the SmackDown brand. Quin previously wrestled on the independent circuit under the ring name Rebecca Knox.

Quin began training as a professional wrestler under Fergal Devitt and Paul Tracey in June 2002, and made her debut five months later. Initially working in Ireland and occasionally teaming with her brother, she soon expanded her career into the rest of Europe. She wrestled regularly for the France-based Queens of Chaos promotion, and won the World Queens of Chaos Championship in 2006. She also wrestled for England's One Pro Wrestling and Germany's German Stampede Wrestling.

She competed in the SuperGirls Wrestling promotion, an offshoot of Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling. She was the promotion's inaugural SuperGirls Champion and held the championship for 10 months and two days. She also appeared at ChickFight III, where she made it to the second round of the tournament. 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.

In September 2006, Knox suffered a head injury during a match in Germany, and was diagnosed with possible damage to her eighth cranial nerve. 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. She later returned to Shimmer as a manager in 2011, before signing a contract with WWE in 2013.

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, and decided to go check it out.[3][7] Beginning in June 2002, she ended up training there, along with her brother.[7] She made her professional wrestling debut five months later on 11 November, using the name Rebecca Knox.[2][3] She teamed with her brother in mixed tag team matches during the early part of her career.[3] She also trained at 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.[8]

On 13 May 2005, Knox was defeated by English wrestler Skye at Queens of Chaos' inaugural show and DVD taping in Toulouse, France.[9] 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.[10] 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, France.[11] She held the championship for approximately two and a half months, successfully defending it against Skye on 10 September, before losing it to Saraya at a World Association of Wrestling (WAW) show in Great Yarmouth, England on 23 September.[12][13]

During 2006, Knox competed for One Pro Wrestling.[14] On 10 September 2006, Knox wrestled for the International Wrestling Zone promotion, defeating Emil Sitoci and Robbie Mireno in a three-way match.[15] On 26 September Knox competed for German Stampede Wrestling, where she lost to Finnish wrestler Kisu in a singles match.[2] During the match Knox suffered a cut above her eye, for which she received stitches.[2] Knox later posted on her website that she had been suffering from headaches, vision problems, and loud buzzing in her left ear since receiving the injury. She was diagnosed with possible damage to her eighth cranial nerve, and as a result canceled all her bookings for the rest of the year.[2][16] She 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.[17][18]

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

Knox joined the Canadian promotion SuperGirls Wrestling, an all-female offshoot of Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW), in 2005, first appearing on ECCW shows. She immediately began feuding with Miss Chevius, defeating her in a singles match in Surrey, British Columbia on 17 May, before losing to her in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia a month later on 17 June.[19][20] The following night however, Knox teamed with Calum Macbeth to defeat Miss Chevius and Tony Tisoy in a mixed tag team match in Vancouver.[20] On 24 June, Knox defeated Miss Chevius at an ECCW show in Surrey, British Columbia, to become the inaugural SuperGirls Champion.[21][22] Knox successfully defended the championship against LuFisto 23 September at the inaugural SuperGirls DVD tapings, when she hit LuFisto with the championship belt and Knox's manager, Scotty Mac powerbombed LuFisto through a table.[23][24] She also successfully defended the championship twice the following night; first against Cheerleader Melissa when Mac superkicked Melissa to allow Knox to pin her, and against Madison, where Knox illegally used the ring ropes for leverage during the pin.[20][24] At ECCW's tenth anniversary show in January 2006, she defeated El Phantasmo in an intergender match.[25] In March she feuded with Nikki Matthews, defeating her at the ECCW television tapings on 25 March and teaming with Sid Sylum and Gurv Sihra to defeat Matthews, Phantasmo and Kyle O'Reilly on 31 March.[26][27] On 8 April, Knox defeated Veronika.[28] Knox held the SuperGirls Championship for 10 months and two days, before eventually losing it to Lisa Moretti on 21 April 2006.[21][29]

On 14 October 2005, Knox appeared at a New England Championship Wrestling event in Framingham, Massachusetts where she competed in a four-way match that was won by Violet Flame.[30] 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.[6] 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.[31] She also appeared for the AWA Pinnacle promotion on 21 January and 26 February 2006. On 21 January she acted as the referee in a match between Christopher Ryseck and Caden Matthews, and helped Ryseck to win by hitting Matthews with a chair.[32] On 26 February, she and Ryseck were defeated by Matthews in a handicap match in Pacific, Washington.[33]

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. 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.[34] At the Volume 5 tapings on 21 May, she attacked Haze following Haze's first match against Portia Perez, performing a release German suplex on Haze. She went on to defeat Haze in a two out of three falls match later that evening.[35][36] 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".[37] 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.[35] Knox was supposed to face Haze in a 60-minute Iron Woman match at Shimmer's Volume 7 taping, but due to the injury she sustained in Germany, the match was cancelled.[38] 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.[17]

On 26 March 2011, Knox returned to Shimmer as the manager of the mother-daughter tag team, Saraya and Britani Knight.[39]

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. She tagged with Aja Kong and Gran Hamada in the main event on each show, and her team was undefeated. During this tour, on 9 November, Knox won an 18-person battle royal in Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.[2][40] She later singled out this tour as the highlight of her career.[40] She returned to Japan in August 2006, defeating Yuri Urai in a singles match on 13 August,[41] before teaming with Bullfight Sora to defeat Gami and Kyoko Kimura. On 18 August, she teamed with Yuki Miyazaki to defeat the team of La Amapola and Kimura,[42] before losing to Kimura in a singles match two days later.[2]

On 8 April 2013, it was reported that Quin had signed a two-year developmental deal with WWE and had moved to Florida to report to their developmental territory NXT.[1] On 29 August, Quin's new ring name was revealed as "Becky Lynch", and she debuted at an NXT live event in November.[2][5]

Lynch made her televised in-ring debut on the 26 June 2014, episode of NXT, defeating Summer Rae.[43] On the 3 July episode of NXT, Lynch teamed up with Bayley in a losing effort to "The BFFs" (NXT Women's Champion Charlotte and Sasha Banks) in a tag team match.[44] She spent the next few months in non-title matches against Charlotte, losing three in a row.[45][46][47] On the 23 October episode of NXT, after being told to make herself relevant, Lynch aligned herself with Sasha Banks by attacking Bayley, turning villainous in the process.[48] Known as "Team B.A.E." (Best at Everything), the alliance started to disintegrate when Banks cost Lynch a match against Bayley, in February 2015.[49][50]

On 11 February, at NXT TakeOver: Rival, Lynch participated in a fatal four-way match for the NXT Women's Championship, which was won by Banks.[51] On the 22 April episode of NXT, Lynch won a triple–threat match against Charlotte and Bayley to become the number one contender to the NXT Women's Championship.[52] On 20 May, at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable, Lynch unsuccessfully challenged Sasha Banks for the championship, debuting a new look resembling Magic: The Gathering character Chandra Nalaar, thus keeping herself moving into the main roster.[53][54] The match received widespread critical acclaim, with praise going to the performances of both Banks and Lynch.[55][56]

Various storylines (2015–2016)[edit]

See also: Team PCB

Lynch made her official main roster debut on the 13 July episode of Raw, as a face, along with Charlotte and Sasha Banks, after Stephanie McMahon called for a "revolution" in the WWE Divas division. While Lynch and Charlotte allied with Paige, who was feuding with Team Bella (The Bella Twins and Alicia Fox), Banks would ally with Naomi and Tamina, leading to a brawl between the three teams.[57] The trio of Lynch, Charlotte and Paige originally dubbed "Submission Sorority" was renamed to "Team PCB", after the first–name initials of each wrestler.[58] Lynch made her in–ring début on the July 20 episode of Raw, where she and Paige lost to Sasha Banks and Naomi,[59][60] and was able to earn her first singles victory, over Brie Bella, on the 28 July episode of Main Event.[61] The three teams ultimately faced off at SummerSlam, in a three team elimination match, where Lynch pinned Brie Bella to win the match for PCB.[62]

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 WWE Divas Championship,[63] which she won, at Night of Champions, on 20 September,[64] and the following night on Raw, during Charlotte's celebration, Paige turned on her partners and cut a worked shoot promo, where she claimed that Charlotte was only there because of her father, and called Lynch the "least relevant" member of Divas division.[65] Throughout October, Paige tried to reconcile with Lynch and Charlotte[66][67] only to attack them and solidify her heel turn, officially disbanding Team PCB in the process.[68] On the 2 November episode of Raw, Lynch failed to win a fatal four–way number one contender's match for Charlotte's Divas Championship, which Paige won after she pinned her.[69] A week later, Lynch gained revenge over Paige and defeated her in a singles match.[70]

On the 30 November episode of Raw, Charlotte started displaying villainous traits, after she defeated Lynch by feigning a leg injury, followed by a distraction provided by her father.[71] Throughout December, Lynch and Charlotte's friendship continued to strain,[72][73][74][75][76] and after Lynch defeated her on the January 4, 2016 episode Raw, Charlotte would attack her and solidify her villainous turn.[77] Lynch went on to challenge Charlotte for her Divas Championship three days later on SmackDown,[78] and at the Royal Rumble on January 24, but lost both matches after interference from Ric Flair.[79]

In February, Lynch became involved with her former rival Sasha Banks' feud with Naomi and Tamina,[80][81][82][83] leading to Lynch allying with Banks to defeat Naomi and Tamina in a tag team match at Fastlane.[84] The following night on Raw, it was announced Lynch and Banks would compete in a number one contender's match, with the winner facing Charlotte for the Divas Championship at WrestleMania 32,[85] the match, however, ended in a no contest, when a double pin occurred.[86] A rematch took place on the following SmackDown, which also ended in a no contest, when Charlotte attacked both girls.[87] As a result, a triple threat Divas Championship match between Lynch, Banks and Charlotte was announced for the pay–per–view.[88] At the event, after it was announced during transmission that the Divas Championship would be withdrawn and it would be replaced with the new Women's Championship,[89] with all three women competing for it in the triple threat match, in which she was unsuccessful in capturing the new title at her WrestleMania debut.[90][91]

After WrestleMania, Lynch began a feud with Emma, being defeated by her on the 2 May episode of Raw,[92] however, she gained revenge on her along with Natalya by defeating her and Charlotte three days later on Smackdown.[93] On the 9 May episode of Raw, Emma's NXT's tag team partner Dana Brooke made her in-main roster debut by assaulting and attacking Lynch during a backstage segment.[94] Three days later on the May 12 episode of Smackdown, Lynch lost to Brooke after being distracted by Emma,[95] and repeated the event on the May 16 episode of Raw.[96] On June 19 at Money In The Bank, Lynch and Natalya were defeated by Brooke and Charlotte. After the match, Lynch was attacked by Natalya, who turned villainous in the process.[97] Followed by multiple continuous attacks between both women,[98][99][100] it was announced that they would face off on July 24 at Battleground.[101] At the event, she was defeated by Natalya.[102]

SmackDown (2016–present)[edit]

After being drafted to SmackDown as part of the 2016 WWE draft which took place on July 19,[103][104] Lynch made her first appearance for the brand on July 26, where she defeated Natalya before being confronted by the brand female talents.[105] On the August 16 episode of SmackDown, Lynch teamed with Carmella in a successful victory against Natalya, and Alexa Bliss, after a dstraction provided by Eva Marie, and Naomi,[106] one day later, a six-woman tag team match was announced for SummerSlam between Lynch, Carmella, and Naomi against Natalya, Bliss, and Marie, but following Eva Marie's suspension on August 18,[107] her place was taken by the returning Nikki Bella, and Lynch's team would ultimately lose the match at the pay-per-view.[108]

Other media[edit]

Lynch will be making her WWE video game debut in WWE 2K17.[109]

Personal life[edit]

Quin was a fan of professional wrestling as a child, and used to watch it with her brother.[3][7] Her brother has also wrestled under the name Gonzo de Mondo.[3] She was involved in horse riding, swimming, and basketball.[3] Prior to beginning to train as a wrestler, Quin stated that she had been "going down a bad path" involving alcohol, but wrestling helped her give it up.[3]

Quin attended university to study philosophy, history, and politics, but said she "really hated it" and dropped out.[3][40] She planned to return to college to study health and exercise studies.[40] As a wrestler, she has broken both of her ankles and suffered two stingers prior to 2005.[3]
