WWE News: Concerns About Going Public
Despite her certainty about her relationship with Rollins, Lynch admitted to Cosmopolitan UK (via FightFans) that she had reservations about making their relationship public. Her concerns were not about the stability of their relationship, but rather about how their real-life romance would be incorporated into WWE storylines and how fans would react to it.
"When I first started dating Seth, I had certain reservations about it being public. Not being public from the standpoint of in case things didn’t work out. [Because] I knew fairly early on that he was the one and that there wasn’t a more perfect person for me out there. But I was worried about us getting involved in a storyline in WWE. [And] how that would be received," Lynch shared.
Struggling with the Balance
Lynch also expressed her struggle with balancing her personal life with her professional persona. She felt awkward about maintaining a certain aura and presence in the ring while also being herself in her personal life.
