Becky Lynch’s stint in NXT proved to be a pivotal moment not just for her but for the entire women’s division. Her impact, though brief, left an indelible mark on the brand, earning commendations for her dedication and transformative presence.
Lynch’s entrance into NXT was sparked by a challenge from Tiffany Stratton. Within a mere two months, she emerged victorious, claiming the coveted NXT Women’s Championship—a title that had long eluded her in her illustrious career.
Despite her full-time status on Raw, Lynch remained a regular fixture on NXT, showcasing her prowess and commitment to nurturing emerging talents. Her headline bout at No Mercy PLE, triumphing in an Extreme Rules match against Stratton, highlighted her dedication to elevating the brand.

Lynch’s impact extended beyond the ring, transcending her obligations by investing time, both physically and verbally, in mentoring and supporting the budding talents of the women’s division—a gesture appreciated by Michaels and the entire NXT community.
Departure and Future Prospects
Lynch’s departure from NXT follows her recent loss of the championship and ongoing feuds with Damage CTRL. While she hasn’t ruled out a return entirely, she has confirmed the conclusion of her current tenure in NXT, leaving the door open for potential future ventures elsewhere in WWE.
