Becky Lynch Talks With Seth Rollins, Reflects On Being Told To "Move Like A Girl" In WWE NXT

Becky Lynch had to be told to "move like a girl" during her early days in WWE NXT.

"The Man" recently sat down with Seth "Freakin'" Rollins for a discussion dubbed, "Never Been Told."

During the talk, the top women's wrestling star reflected on her early days in WWE NXT not being as glamorous as some might think based on where she ended up in her career as one of the faces of WWE.

"Coming into WWE, I had one very specific goal and that was to main event WrestleMania and make women's wrestling the coolest thing on TV, and to change the game and to be seen as equal," she said. "Even in my early stages in NXT, it was weird and confusing because you were told that women can't punch and you can't use things like steps and you can't use the post. Are we supposed to just hair pull and slap each other? It's very confusing. I even remember being told, 'Move like a girl.'"

She continued, "What, I am a girl, what do you mean? It was all so very confusing. Also, where I wanted to go to, there had been no women that had gone there. It is very male-dominated. I was trying to get to this space where the men were at the top of the card so I had to rely on them for help and for guidance. I was lucky that I had people like you [Seth Rollins] to turn to. John Cena, being able to ask him advice on all the live events. You very much had to go to people who had been in the spots you wanted to be. Luckily, everybody was so willing to help the younger and eager talent in that regard. Nobody is hoarding the secrets for themselves."
