Becky Lynch made the surprising announcement of her pregnancy last month and the Man had to relinquish the Raw Women’s Championship due to this.
However, a number of people have criticised Lynch for getting pregnant at the top of her career and now former UFC star Shayna Baszler has joined the list.
During her recent appearance on WWE’s The Bump, the former NXT Women’s Champion talked about her rival star’s decision and said that it’s garbage:
“No, I think it’s garbage, what are we teaching? Responsibility? She had responsibilities to uphold as ‘the champion’ of the division. Like, take care of your responsibilities first. Don’t leave the division in an uproar and then hand your title away to whoever you feel [deserves it].”
Baszler went on to mention how everyone is congratulating Lynch on her announcement but she claimed that it’s a double standard from people:
“It’s ridiculous. Everyone is like, ‘Oh, that’s so wonderful. Blah, blah, blah.’ But, if that was your daughter, you would smack her upside the head and be like, ‘You need to be smarter.’ It’s like a double standard.”
