According to both Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT and Ringside News, former WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, was backstage for the season premiere of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX this past week.
For what it’s worth, Becky Lynch WAS backstage at SmackDown this week.
I believe Ringside News reported it. I asked about it and it’s accurate.

Lynch, who is currently expecting her first child with WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, was not said to have been present in order to discuss business but rather accompany her fiancé in his new home on the blue brand.
However, Rollins did state that Becky was determined to remain productive while awaiting their first child together:
“She’s the hardest working person I’ve ever met, so she wants to always be productive. That’s what gives her purpose on a day-to-day basis. It’s been crazy for her but she found cool things that hopefully she’ll be able to share in the future.”
‘The Man’ is expected to give birth to the couple’s first child in December and Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently reported that the star is expected back as early as WrestleMania 37 on March 28, 2021.
However, it was orated yesterday by Wrestlingnews.co that Vince McMahon himself has plans for Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania and expects the talent to return to the company in an active role in January or February, just one or two months after giving birth.
The last time we saw Becky Lynch compete in a WWE ring was against Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36 where the Irish native retained her Raw Women’s Championship. In May, Lynch announced her pregnancy to the world on an episode of Raw and vacated her coveted gold to Asuka.
WWE haven’t forgotten about arguably their most valuable female talent either. WWE Shop are currently churning out Christmas jumpers with the slogan, ‘The Mom’ on the front.
