Becky Lynch supports Sami Zayn’s Syrian medical campaign

Someone similar to Becky Lynch in WWE is Sami Zayn. The former Intercontinental Champion was a pure babyface before embracing his dark side. However, Zayn’s wrestling character is contrary to his personality outside the ring.

Zayn might be one of the biggest philanthropists in the WWE roster, and his Sami for Syria campaign has saved many lives in his home country. He also runs a mobile clinic which provides medical help to anyone requiring it in the war-torn country of Syria.

On Instagram, Becky posted a picture donning the signature Sami Zayn shirt with his dance moves printed on it. She claimed it is her new favourite shirt and also endorsed Sami’s cool new dance moves. Hundred percent of the profits from the shirts sold will go to the Sami for Syria campaign.

The shirt and Becky’s kindness received compliments from Mojo Rawley, Kayla Braxton, Renee Paquette and WWE legend Trish Stratus. Meanwhile, Sami thanked Becky on his Twitter page, writing, “Be like The Man. Support the cause.”

When will we see The Man return to the ring?

Becky Lynch took time away from the ring because of her pregnancy. She vacated the Raw Women’s Title on the Raw after Money in the Bank and awarded it to Asuka, the women’s MITB winner. Many expected her to return to WWE at the women’s Royal Rumble match, but that didn’t happen.

Becky teased her return at the Rumble, but apologized to fans when she didn’t show up. She did the same at WrestleMania 37, teasing an appearance on Night 1 and then congratulating Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks with another cryptic tweet. As for her return, no one knows when the Man will come back to reclaim her place in WWE.

The ideal place for Becky to return would be prior to SummerSlam. Becky Lynch vs Asuka would’ve made the story between them come full circle, as Becky handed the title to Asuka when she took her hiatus. However, with Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair in the title picture, the WWE Universe has to wait and see if WWE throws the Man into the mix.
