Becky Lynch Asked The Rock For Permission To Use Rock Bottom At WWE SummerSlam

When Becky Lynch returned to WWE at SummerSlam, she surprised Bianca Belair with a sucker punch and then a Rock Bottom to win the SmackDown Women's Championship.

Becky had been utilizing the Disarm-Her submission during her previous run, but wanted to add an impact move upon returning.

The Rock famously put many foes away with the Rock Bottom during his wrestling career, and he was more than happy to pass the move to Becky.

"I have an affinity for the Disarm-her because that's how I've won most of my big matches," Becky told Ryan Satin on Out of Character when asked which move she prefers. "I like the Manhandle Slam because you can hit it out of nowhere. I used a variation of the Rock Bottom before, but it's just easier to get it and go. I asked The Rock if I could use it and he was very gracious and said I could. I called him and told him how SummerSlam was going to go down. 'Here's what I'm thinking, I'm supposed to hit one move, can I use this?' 'Yeah.' There was more (to the conversation). He's so awesome and is so gracious with his time and advice. To get advice from someone like that and someone who is so busy makes me feel very lucky."

Becky and The Rock famously shared the ring during the SmackDown on FOX premiere on October 4, 2019. You can watch the segment in the video above.

Becky is set to team with Charlotte Flair on Monday's WWE Raw as they battle Belair and Sasha Banks. Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
