"Becky Lynch has taken over the sports-entertainment scene in the last year, and this Friday, you can find the Raw Women’s Champion with actress Alison Brie on the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s “Blockbuster” issue.

"The new issue focuses on the intersection between Hollywood and sports. Lynch and Brie, who is the star of Netflix’s hit comedy show “GLOW” on the 1980s Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling promotion, got together for an interview about the obstacles they face in their respective industries, the toughness of women, and much more.

"The Man is the first WWE Superstar to ever appear on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. Get your hands on the issue when it hits newsstands this Friday."

Lynch, also known for her strong Twitter fingers, also let her fans in on the development via the social media app.

She tweeted: "Last year I said I wanted to be the face of this business that I love so much. We don’t always have to accept the status that’s given to us. It’s been quite a year and it’s an honor to be the first WWE superstar to be on the cover of ESPN magazine."

This is really quite the honor for Becky, who has now reached yet another historical milestone with WWE. Wrestling has been a business typically dominated by men but Lynch has really stood out over the past year or so and could go on to achieve w whole lot more.
