Lynch, 33, told Asuka that normally the Money in the Bank match earns the winner a title shot. But in Asuka’s case, this one earned her the title. Lynch then broke the news.

“I can’t fight anymore, but you can,” Lynch said. “You are the champion. … You go be a warrior because I’m gonna go be a mother.”

Lynch, a native of Ireland, has been with WWE since 2013. Lynch, whose real name is Rebecca Quin, is a trained actor and is actively pursuing a second career in film and television. Last week, she had a guest spot on the season premiere of the Showtime series “Billions.”
