Becky Lynch

— Becky Lynch has taken over the professional wrestling scene in the last year, and this Friday, you can find the Raw Women’s Champion with actress Alison Brie on the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s “Blockbuster” issue. 

The new issue focuses on the intersection between Hollywood and sports. Lynch and Brie, who is the star of Netflix’s hit comedy show “GLOW” on the 1980s Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling promotion, got together for an interview about the obstacles they face in their respective industries, the toughness of women, and much more.

Lynch is the first WWE Superstar to appear on the cover of ESPN The Magazine.

— At WWE Extreme Rules, Universal Champion Seth Rollins and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will put their titles on the line in a Winners Take All Mixed Tag Team Extreme Rules Match in hopes of getting Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans out of their hair once and for all.

Even if Evans comes up short this Sunday, expect “The Lady of WWE” to remain in the spotlight. According to Brad Shepard of Pro Sports Extra, Vince McMahon is really high on Evans.

— Shelton Benjamin celebrates his birthday today as SmackDown LIVE Superstar turns 44 years old. He wrestled at last night’s WWE live event in Glen Falls, New York, losing to Chad Gable.
