While Hair vs. Hair Matches are nothing new in wrestling, asking a female star to shave her head for no real reason is a little unorthodox. When the woman in question is one of the biggest stars in the world, Becky Lynch, that pitch becomes even more surreal.
“I Was Like, No!”- Becky Lynch
The former Raw Women’s Champion revealed that the pitch wasn’t even part of a storyline or feud. A writer simply asked that Lynch shave her head.
“Oh yes, yes… No, not even [not in a WWE storyline]. This was the whole pitch that I got sent to by a writer,” Lynch recalls. “It was like, ‘What if Becky shaves her head?’ and that was pretty much it. It wasn’t something that I did on TV. It wasn’t I lost my hair in a match. It was just, ‘What if Becky was bald?’ I was like, ‘No!’”
Becky Lynch recently returned to action after spending four months on the side-lines after suffering a shoulder injury at SummerSlam. After being revealed as the fifth member of ‘Team Belair’ at Survivor Series WarGames, the star stepped inside the unforgiving structure to battle the likes of Rhea Ripley and Damage CTRL. In the end it was The Man who scored the win for her team by leaping from the top of the cage to drive Dakota Kai and IYO SKY through a table.
On the following edition of Monday Night Raw Lynch came to the ring and seemingly began her next rivalry. The Irish star resumed her issues with Bayley and Damage CTRL, brawling with the Women’s Tag Team Champions. In storyline it was the trio who put Lynch out of action following her match with Bianca Belair at SummerSlam.
