Pregnancy forces Becky Lynch out of WWE

WWE star Becky Lynch announced on “Monday Night Raw” that she is pregnant and will be stepping away from the world of professional wrestling.
Lynch, who had been the Raw women’s champion since April last year, opened WWE’s flagship show by relinquishing her championship to Asuka, who had won the “Money in the Bank” ladder match a night earlier.
“Tonight is no ordinary night for me. I’m torn between joy and sadness because I am at a place in my life where things are about to change and I needed to do something about it,” Lynch said before giving a brief history of her time with WWE, which began in 2013.
Midway through the segment, Asuka came to the ring and Lynch revealed that she was forfeiting her championship over to her longtime rival.
“You have been the best wrestler in the world for a long time and this is why I’m so glad that this is happening to you,” Lynch said.
“The match last night, it wasn’t what you thought it was. The match last night was actually for the Raw women’s championship. I can’t fight anymore, but you can. You are the champion. You go and be a warrior because I am going to go and be a mother.”
