Recently TMZ Sports caught up with Raw Women’s champion Becky Lynch for a short interview where she talked about transitioning over to an acting career in TV shows and movies. Lynch is scheduled to do a guest spot on an episode of Billions soon.
Check out the highlights and the full video interview below.
Becky Lynch on how John Cena & The Rock helped her with acting career:
“Yeah, he’s [The Rock] actually been very helpful in guiding me and actually put me in contact with who my agent is right now. He’s just been very giving, and I think they all are because they’ve all been there. And they’re all read to look after the next generation. [John] Cena has also been so great to me and so generous with his time and his advice, and checks up on me and what I’m doing now. So yeah, I think everybody wants to see the next generation move to where they’ve been, you know?”
Becky Lynch on wrestlers who have transitioned to movies who have helped her:
“Yeah, absolutely, but they don’t have to do that. They are busy, busy men, and yeah. They don’t need to be so generous with their time and advice, and be so caring and nurturing, but they are. And I think it’s just a testament to one, the kind of people they are, but also, just the family environment that wrestling creates.”
Becky Lynch on what her goals are for acting:
“Man, it’s all of it. Look, I just love performing. I love being able to get that out there, but I also love a crowd. So as long as I can wrestle, then I’m going to be doing that. But here’s some stuff coming out in the next year, which is pretty big and I’m very excited about, but I can’t talk about it. But stay tuned.”
