The Arse-Kicking History Of Irish Superstars- March 17, 2015*

The next generation: Becky Lynch

Ireland’s influence on sports-entertainment continues today with two of WWE NXT’s most promising young talents — Finn Bálor and Becky Lynch.

Dublin’s Becky Lynch has been carving a path of her own in WWE NXT. Although she scaled back the considerable Emerald Isle influences she displayed in her debut, Lynch’s aggressive, hammer and tongs fighting style is unmistakably Irish. This Dublin scrapper just might have what it takes to become the first Irish-born Divas Champion. Good luck to anyone standing in her path.
