WWE star Becky Lynch has reportedly signed a new $1million-a-year contract as she nears a return to the ring.
The 34-year-old relinquished her Raw Women’s Championship last May after announcing her pregnancy with fellow wrestler Seth Collins.
Lynch – a four-time world champion in WWE – welcomed daughter Roux on December 4 where she posted an adorable Instagram snap.
Her return to the squared circle – as well as Ronda Rousey’s – was confirmed by WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan last month.
He said: “Ronda is going to be coming back at a certain point in time.
“Becky Lynch, she just had her first baby.
“She will be coming back at a certain point in time in the not too distant future.”
And Ringside News have claimed that the Irish ace has inked a new deal with WWE ahead of her eagerly-awaited return.
They state that she has extended her eight-year stay with the company by signing a contract worth £708k-a-year.
Lynch delighted her fans earlier this month after reaching out to a disabled supporter in a heartwarming gesture of kindness.

She was tagged in a post on Twitter after a disabled fan who is unable to walk or talk got Lynch on her AFOs [ankle foot orthoses].
The tweet read: “Emily is so happy because her new AFOs have @BeckyLynchWWE on them!
“‘Smiles on people’s faces’ is a real thing and this girl who can’t walk or talk can sure tell us how she feels.”
And Lynch replied just a few hours later by saying: “Would love to see that smile in person. Sent you a dm!”
Her post was then responded to by the user, who added: “Next year the plan is for the family to go to WrestleMania.
“Will be only Emily’s second ever wrestling show live.”
