Becky Lynch fans started gathering for a meet and greet with their hero at 4 pm on Saturday despite it not taking place until 10 am the next morning.
The ascension of Becky Lynch in WWE over the past six months or so has been nothing short of remarkable. The Irish Superstar decided that she was no longer going to let anything or anyone stop her from making it to the very top, and watching her become one of the biggest and best things in wrestling has been an amazing ride.
Despite the speed bump thrown in The Man's way on her road to WrestleMania by Vince McMahon, barring a severe injury, Lynch will be in that main event match. If WWE were to plow ahead with a one on one between Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey at this point it would be a disaster. The revelation on Raw that Flair will be taking Lynch's place on the grandest stage of them all became WWE's most disliked YouTube video ever within three days of being posted.
That isn't the only way fans have been showing their solidarity towards Becky Lynch this week. On Sunday morning, The Lass Kicker made a public appearance at a Cricket Wireless store in Houston, Texas. Even though Lynch's meet and greet was not scheduled to begin until 10 am on Sunday, fans had started to gather outside the store and form a queue at 4 pm on Saturday afternoon. Now that's dedication.
I don’t know what else to say but thank you when I see things like this. I appreciate every single person who’s on this weird and wild journey with me.— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) February 16, 2019
The Man will come around again.
Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow! https://t.co/OFQQcJRc8n
Ernesto Aguilar tweeted just before 4 pm local time that he could see fans already gathering outside the store. "She's not there until tomorrow morning. Tell me that's not love and devotion," he wrote. Lynch saw and quoted the tweet, thanking all of the fans waiting in line for her and that she looked forward to seeing them in the morning.
Even though The Man is "suspended" and doesn't have a match at Elimination Chamber tonight, she has already had a very busy weekend. As well as meeting fans on Sunday morning, WWE has reported that she re-injured her knee attacking Flair during a live event on Sunday night. Hopefully just part of the ongoing angle which appears to simply be WWE not being able to decide whether to suspend Lynch until WrestleMania or have her sidelined via an "injury."
