Experts say, in the sphere of professional wrestling, you hardly make friends as everyone is your competitor. But a recent revelation about Becky Lynch has made fans think otherwise.

Zelina Vega was suddenly fired a few months back before a SmackDown show. Vega, who now goes by her actual name Thea Trinidad, got a title opportunity a few days back.

Although there have been speculations on why Vega got fired, most believe she was fired as she failed to keep up with WWE’s updated third-party policies and kept operating on Twitch.

While Vega was so suddenly fired, many former WWE wrestlers came to support her, but people on the current roster mainly kept silent. However, recently Vega revealed how ‘The Man‘ kept supporting her throughout the ordeal.

As a part of an Instagram Q&A, Vega opened up about her friendship with the former Women’s Champion. She revealed, “she’s (Lynch) one of the people that was really there for me after I left. I’ll always appreciate her.”

During her release in November, Lynch was pregnant with her and Seth Rollins‘ first child. At that point, Lynch was out of the ring for almost eight months, but it did not stop her from supporting her co-worker.

Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins welcomed their first child

The modern era power couple of WWE, Becky Lynch, and Seth Rollins announced the arrival of their baby on December 7 via Instagram. The couple posted a picture with the caption, “Welcome to the world Roux. You are the love of our lives.”

As explained by Nameberry, Roux is a girl’s name with French origins. It is derived from a Latin word meaning ‘russet.’ Russet is often used to describe the dark brown color with a reddish-orange tinge.

Recently, Lynch posted an adorable picture with Baby Roux on Instagram. Lynch is wearing clothing from the MMA icon Conor McGregor’s latest collaboration with the brand Roots of Fight. Lynch also noted that all profits from the collection will go to a children’s health foundation in Ireland.
