Slow Start

Bring In the Clowns

Want Ice With That?

As if she didn’t log enough air miles through wrestling, Lynch once worked as a flight attendant for Aer Lingus. After a couple of years of passing out headphones and peanuts, she was ready to head back into the ring.

Alternate Reality

Lynch says that if she weren’t a pro wrestler, she’d be acting and writing for the stage and screen, especially sit coms. She actually has a degree in acting from the Dublin Institute of Technology.
