Seth Rollins reveals his wife Becky Lynch’s secret talent ahead of WrestleMania 39 and makes predictions for UK fans
Becky Lynch will enter WrestleMania 39 next weekend as one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions.
But according to The Man’s other half, Seth Rollins, there’s one team she doesn’t pay enough attention to: her beloved Chicago Bears!
The pair are two of WWE’s biggest stars, but former Shield member Rollins is also an avid American football fan.
And during an exclusive interview with talkSPORT, The Architect admitted it was difficult to convince his Irish wife Lynch to emulate his passion for the NFL.
Rollins revealed that Lynch, with whom he shares daughter Roux, shares a unique Super Bowl talent – although she barely follows the sport herself.
Asked by talkSPORT’s TalkWRESTLING podcast Lynch getting into American football, Rollins replied, “Maybe a little.
“She actually has a very fond memory of the Super Bowls.
“She remembers the teams and the winners of the last six, seven, eight Super Bowls and she doesn’t watch football at all.

“I don’t know how she has this weird memory for it, but she’s really good at it. She’ll get into the Bears a bit.
“The problem is that they lose a lot, so she just says ‘why are we doing this? can’t we just choose someone else? there are a lot of options, we’re in Iowa, you don’t have to be a Bears fan.
“So I’m like, no, it’s in our blood, man. It’s in our blood. We can’t betray our own blood. My grandfather was a Bears fan.
“He would turn in his grave if he saw me supporting the (Green Bay) Packers – I can’t do that!
“We’ll have a winning season here in the next two years and she’ll be back, she’ll be in blue and orange like this.”
WWE will once again host a big stadium show in England for Money in the Bank at the 02 Arena this summer for the first time since SummerSlam 1992.
This will mark Lynch’s first experience of a WWE PPV in the British Isles after missing Castle Clash last year through injury.
Rollins, however, beat Matt Riddle at the Principality Stadium in Wales and is relishing the opportunity to return to these shores.
He added: “I mean, Clash at the Castle did pretty well.
“Wales showed, not just Wales, it was the whole UK, man. This place was wild. So I think we’re going to do Money in the Bank in 02.
“02 is always crazy anyway, when you come there for a European tour or for RAW, so for a pay per view, it’s going to be crazy.
