The season three premiere of Young Rock is due to hit screens on Friday November 4th, and will feature none other than Becky Lynch.
As reported by PWInsider, Lynch has been cast as music star Cyndi Lauper. For the appearance Lynch will be billed under her real name of Rebecca Quin.
PWInsider notes that the episode centres around a party thrown by Lauper in 1985, around the time of the first WrestleMania.
“The plot of the first episode deals with a party Lauper throws around WrestleMania 1. Hulk Hogan, Mr. T, Vince McMahon, Lou Albano and Liberace will also be portrayed in the episode, which is set in 1985. When the series was being cast, Lauper was listed as a possible recurring character, so this may not be Lynch’s only appearance in the series.”
Cyndi Lauper was a celebrity guest at WrestleMania I, and accompanied Wendi Richter to the ring for her WWF Women’s Championship match against Leilani Kai.
Young Rock is based on the life story of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, following his younger years in school to moving into the wrestling business. The show is moving to Fridays for season three putting it up against WWE SmackDown, after previously being broadcast on Tuesdays.
Becky Lynch Remains Out Of Action
Becky Lynch hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Bianca Belair at SummerSlam. During the bout she suffered a shoulder injury, although she finished the match as planned. The Irish star was written off television on the following episode of Monday Night Raw.
It was recently reported that Lynch isn’t close to a return to the ring despite speculation suggesting otherwise.
The hope was that the former Raw Women’s Champion wouldn’t need surgery and a period of rehab would be a preferred method of treatment. As of early September it was reportedly stated by those within WWE that doctors and physical therapists had told the star that it would be “at least a couple of months” before she could “get near a ring.” There remains no definitive timetable for her return.
Those within WWE are optimistic that Lynch will be back before the end of the year, but nothing guaranteed.
