Trainer

She was trained by Finn Balor

Becky is Irish and interestingly, she has been trained by another famous Irish wrestler, the reigning Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.

Balor had his own wrestling school in Ireland, which Becky joined in 2002.

Both shared almost a similar journey, wrestling all over the world, before becoming a part of WWE years later.

Early retirement!

In 2006, Becky suffered a serious brain injury in Germany.

While it was initially feared a brain hemorrhage, she suffered injury in her eighth cranial nerve, keeping her out of action for a year.

Even after months after the injury, she had severe side effects like headaches, vision problems and concussions.

She even contemplated retirement from pro-wrestling, before returning in 2011.

NXT

She never won the NXT Women's Championship

While this might come to you as a shock, but Becky has never won the Women's Championship in NXT.

Moreover, she is the only one among the Four Horsewomen (Bayley, Charlotte and Sasha Banks) to have never won the championship.

However, being a heel back in NXT could have been one of the reasons behind her not winning the title.
