In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio to promote her new book, Becky Lynch: The Man – Not Your Average Average Girl, WWE RAW superstar Becky Lynch discussed several topics, including the experience of writing the book, why she wanted it to be as honest as possible and much more.

“I loved it, I think it was because it was always in my mind that I was going to do this, like yeah, I’m going to be a wrestler, I’m going to make it to the WWE, I’m going to main event WrestleMania and I’m going to write a book, it was just like, the things that were, not inevitable, because nothing is inevitable, but was high on my, what I will do one day list.

My Dad, when I was younger, was always telling me to write everything down. When I rekindled my love for wrestling as a teenager, Mick Foley was my guy, he was my guy, I could see myself in Mick, you know, the person who wasn’t the athlete, but had that fight in him. When he wrote a book, then I was like, oh well, I will also write a book and I will write my own book too, because my Dad had always told me to write everything down.

I think my Dad was trying to make me a writer from a young age, he loved getting me to write down different stories, tell stories, all that kind of stuff, I think that really sculpted the person that I am now. When I wrote the book, I just wanted to make sure it was as honest as possible, so that maybe people could relate to it, could find something that could help them, or they could see something in either my mistakes or my successes that maybe they haven’t seen in other books.

I think that’s the thing when you’re reading memoirs, and especially from people that have done some exceptional things. I always felt I was an average girl from Dublin who wasn’t really remarkable in any other way, but with wrestling, I was able to change that and I applied myself and got to do some of the most unaverage things.”
