WWE Superstar Becky Lynch a.k.a. The Man Pulls No Punches In Her Memoir: Becky Lynch The Man Not Your Average Average Girl By Rebecca Quin On Sale March 26, 2024

“It Might just be the new Underdog’s Guide to the Galaxy.” – John Cena

This compelling and deeply personal memoir from WWE superstar Rebecca Quin—a.k.a. The Man, a.k.a. Becky Lynch—delves into her earliest wrestling days, her scrappy beginnings, and her meteoric rise to fame.

By age seven, Rebecca Quin, now known in the ring as Becky Lynch, was already defying what the world expected of her.  Raised in Dublin, Ireland in a devoutly Catholic family, Rebecca constantly invented new ways to make her mother worry—roughhousing with the neighborhood kids, hosting secret parties while her parents were away, enrolling in a warehouse wrestling school, nearly breaking her neck and almost kneecapping a WWE star before her own wrestling career even began—and she was always in search of a thrilling escape from the ordinary.

Rebecca’s deep love of wrestling as a child set her on an unlikely path.  With few female wrestlers to look to for guidance, Rebecca pursued a wrestling career hoping to change the culture and move away from the antiquated disrespect so often directed at the elite female athletes that grace the ring.  Even as a teenager, she knew that she would stop at nothing to earn a space among the greatest wrestlers of our time, and to pave a new path for female fighters.

Culled from decades of journal entries, Rebecca’s memoir offers a raw, personal, and honest depiction of the complex woman behind the character Rebecca Quin plays on TV.

Rebecca Quin is best known as one of WWE’s biggest superstars The Man, Becky Lynch.  She is also an actor, writer, and mother.  Rebecca was born in Ireland and, despite failing physical education and dropping out of college, she quickly ascended to wrestling superstardom.  She was the first ever SuperGirls champion, the first SmackDown Women’s Champion, and the first woman to win the main event of WrestleMania.  She has competed all over the world and has been instrumental in driving change in a traditionally male-dominated sport.

“Quin’s story is one of perseverance, humility, and raw emotion.  Her authenticity allows us to feel her struggles and mature alongside her as the story unfolds.  Anyone who’s ever wondered what it takes and what it’s like to become a WWE superstar will not be able to put it down.  It might just be the new Underdog’s Guide to the Galaxy.  A trailblazer, a groundbreaker, and a great example of my 3 favorite words…Never Give Up.” — John Cena

One of the finest wrestling books—or memoirs of any kind—I have had the pleasure to read.. Becky allowed me in on the ground floor of her creative process, and I read with great joy as she found her voice as a writer.  I am so glad she has chosen to share that voice and her remarkable life story with all of us.” —Mick Foley, WWE Hall of Famer & New York Times bestselling author

“Becky is my friend, but I had no idea about her unreal journey.  From immigrating from Ireland, to helping to orchestrate the ascension of women’s wrestling, this is a must-read for any WWE fan but also for anyone with big dreams and odds stacked against them.” —Maria Menounos, TV Presenter best known as host of Extra & E! News

“Effortlessly authentic, poignant without ever trying too hard, and a little rough around the edges—that’s my lovely wife, and it’s also her lovely book.  Between being a full-time WWE Superstar, a full-time mother, and a GOAT life partner, my one and only somehow casually found the bandwidth to pen a perfect memoir…because of course she did.” —The Man’s Man, A.K.A. Seth Rollins, WWE Superstar & Husband to Rebecca Quin

“Becky’s writing style is infectious and contagious.  Just like her personality.  From hard times and hard decisions, to changing the landscape of sports entertainment.  The self-described ‘underdog’ has always been destined to do great things.  And that’s the bottom line, because Stone Cold said so.” —Stone Cold Steve Austin, media personality & Retired WWE Hall of Famer

“Most people would be satisfied headlining WrestleMania, changing the face of women’s wrestling and pulling off a flawless Cyndi Lauper on network television.  Thankfully for Becky that was all just a precursor to this freaking masterpiece of a book.” —Brian Gerwitz, author, former head writer of Raw, & SVP of Development at Seven Bucks Productions

Becky Lynch: The Man is the story of a remarkable woman who had the guts to put it all on the line.  Taking risks that would take her from flight attendant to one of the biggest WWE Superstars in the world, Becky Lynch defies every stereotype.  The crowd loves her because she is vulnerable and real, and I have no doubt you will too!” —Stephanie McMahon

“Such a beautiful read.  Becky doesn’t just tell a story, she lets you sit shotgun as she relives a journey of triumph, family, heartbreak, and crippling self-doubt.  Her honesty and accountability are beyond refreshing.  This is a story written by a dreamer for other dreamers with the enduring message that if she can reach the top of the mountain, we can too.” James Roday, actor best known for roles in Psyche & A Million Little Things, director, & Screenwriter

“[Quin] grounds her accomplishments with candid discussions of body image issues, her unglamorous pre-wrestling days as an Aer Lingus flight attendant, and moments when she acted like a ‘jerk’…Such honesty sets her account apart from other professional athlete memoirs.  Even non-wrestling fans are likely to enjoy this.” —Publishers Weekly

“A treat for fans of The Man and pro wrestling, with plenty of peeks behind the curtain.” Kirkus Reviews
