On the occasion of National Girls and Women in Sports Day, the official Twitter page of Special Olympics North America asked three athletes to mention the woman in sports they admire.

Gracie Flanagan uploaded a video where she mentioned that WWE superstar Becky Lynch is her favorite woman in sports. Eventually, Flanagan mentioned she would like to meet Lynch and become best friends with her.

Seeing this video, ‘The Man’ took to her Twitter handle and replied – “Let’s make it happen!”

This gesture from the current champion really elevates her stature and also makes them realize they play such an important role in some people’s lives.

What is next for Becky Lynch?

The Man has been on a roll since her return to WWE. With her recent victory against Duodrop, Lynch is leading the Raw’s women division. However, the future looks dim for her.

After her Royal Rumble victory, Lynch ran into WWE Hall of Famer Lita and agreed on facing the iconic legend at the Elimination Chamber premium live event in Saudi Arabia.

However, this will not be a simple task for her. Lita made her comeback prior to Royal Rumble and claimed she still has one last run remaining in her.

Now, things might get tricky for Lynch and WWE because the fans would do anything to see Lita as Women’s champion one more time.

However, the company faced a similar issue when Charlotte Flair faced legendary Trish Stratus. But back then, even the fans knew that Stratus is not back for long.

If Becky defeats Lita, the fans might dislike the result. However, WWE has had its fair share of unpopular decision makings.
