When asked about her next goal, she hinted at Hollywood.

While speaking to TVInsider, Lynch revealed that she’s come across a script about a female boxer from Ireland. Considering she can relate to it, she’s been looking for writers. It’s possible she wants to refine the script or add some of her personal experiences to the script to make it more realistic.

“There is a script that landed on my desk about a female boxer that I have been trying to track down the writers for. A female boxer from Ireland who came over and made her name as champion over here. I relate to that story…as the main event!”

As of now, she hasn’t made any commitment to the fans about featuring in the movie. Right now, it’s just a draft plan.

But she did find her way back and decided to change her life. And, one of the first things she turned her focus on was pro wrestling.
