Becky Lynch: WWE Raw women’s Champion speaks as herself after meeting a special fan backstage.
The world of wrestling can get dark and uneasy real fast. From exploitative bookers to colleagues stabbing each other in the back and going into business for themselves; most find themselves all alone in the profession. However, there are the rare occasions where they put all this behind and gather together for a greater cause.

A mentally and physically challenged fan recently had a major house fire that burned down nearly all of their possessions, including an entire wall full of signed 8x10s of local wrestlers. A local NorCal promotion (spearheaded by A.J. Kirch, AKA Broseph Joe Brody from Hoodslam) put out a call for wrestlers to send him their signed photos to replace it, and he was absolutely flooded with gifts from local and international wrestlers.
The WWE got involved as well, giving the fan a signed title belt and the tickets to this show, where he got to go backstage and meet Becky Lynch, the current Raw women’s champion.
A.J Kirsch took to Twitter to express his happiness for the entire wrestling community coming together for one fan. He also gave a special thanks to Becky Lynch for meeting the fan.
When a mentally/physically challenged fan’s home burns down, torching his trove of wrestling memorabilia, not only does the local pro wrestling community step up (story here: https://t.co/6w80GEOrOz), but @BeckyLynchWWE makes his day at #WWEFresno.

Lynch herself seemed very moved by the fan. She posted a picture with him and broke character in the caption.
“I don’t usually use this account to talk as ‘myself’ these days – but meeting this man, and seeing what wrestling means to him is why we do this. I was honored to meet him.”
