Becky Lynch is on the cover of WWE 2K20 alongside Roman Reigns. This is the first time that a female wrestler is on the main cover and it is a major feat. Charlotte Flair talked about Becky Lynch being on the cover and she mentioned that even though she would like to be the face of the franchise, Becky has had a great year. At this point, who would not want to be on the cover with Roman?
Previously, we saw wrestlers like The Rock, John Cena, Steve Austin, Brock Lensar, Seth Rollins and AJ Styles on the cover and these are all big names in the wrestling world. Charlotte talked about Becky Lynch being on the cover of WWE 2K20 and here is what she had to say regarding the matter:
So, I look at it this way. If you watched the video game’s, commercial, and Roman acknowledging her like ‘You’re the man,’ there’s no bigger acknowledgment in our company than coming from Roman Reigns. I want to be where Roman is right now, on [the marketing materials] for Fox (Sports). I want to be the face of the company.
Roman Reigns is the face of the company right now and on the cover of WWE 2K20, he stands behind Becky Lynch. That is a statement on its own. This means that WWE stands by its female wrestlers and want people to know that these female wrestlers are treated as equals to their male co-workers. Flair went on to mention the following regarding the matter:
Having me up here, and not another male is a message from WWE saying, ‘Hey, our women are taking over and we hope that this message spreads to every industry. Because WWE is positioning us as Superstars equally as the men in every aspect in the company.
That is a big move and I am sure that people will appreciate this statement that WWE is trying to make. This might seem like a very small move but it is a rather big change. It will be interesting to see what the fans have to say regarding the matter.
Let us know what you think about Becky Lynch being on the cover of WWE 2K20 and whether or not you are interested in playing the game when it comes out.
