A relationship that has rarely been seen on screen has given couple goals to the entire WWE Universe. Today, we detail their journey together through the fast-paced, on-road world of Pro-Wrestling.

Coincidentally, when the couple announced their relationship both were the champions of their respective divisions. The former Messiah journaled the early beginnings of his relationship with Becky in the WWE 365 Documentary, “I hit it off with Rebecca towards the end of January (2019). The first time we kissed was Royal Rumble weekend, a little-known fact. That was interesting because I’ve known her for such a long time, never really thought about the other one in that way,”
Seth further added, “So even when we started hanging out as more than just friends, it felt really nice, but was also like, ‘ah, maybe we shouldn’t do this.’ But after a couple of weeks, it was pretty obvious that there was no way we were gonna avoid it. And things started to turn from there,”
Fast forward 3 months later, The Man announced her engagement to Rollins in a heartwarming tweet that read, “Happiest day of my life. For the rest of my life.” The couple was looking to get married in Spring 2020 but Covid Pandemic threw a wrench in their plans.

Have they performed together on screen?
Yes, they have. Post WrestleMania 35, Rollins and Lynch became entangled in a feud with Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans. This led to a mixed tag team match at Extreme Rules, 2020 where they defeated Corbin and Evans.
However, since then Seth in an interview with Sports Media said, “We tried to make the best at it, but I don’t think either of us was comfortable with it. Even though we have incredible chemistry as people, as performers, our characters never really vibed on-screen. It’s one of those things where, if she comes back, we’ll stay away from it and won’t touch on it. If something calls for it and we’re in the same segment or story, you can’t pretend like it doesn’t exist. It’s not possible, we’re too high profile for that, but if we’re in two separate places, then no one thinks about it now.
Pregnancy and subsequent marriage
On an episode of WWE RAW post Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Lynch relinquished her WWE Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka, who won the Women’s Money in the Bank match. The Man announced that she was pregnant and as a result had to take a break from WWE. THE MAN was going to be THE MOM.
She then took to social media to thank her family and friends for their support. “I have no idea what happens from here, but I do know that you’ve made all my dreams come true,” Lynch wrote. “I entered the PC in 2013 not knowing anyone, I’ll leave that same building tonight with my new family. Thank you all so much.”
