Becky Lynch explains risque WWE title picture with Seth Rollins which sent the internet crazy

Becky Lynch has explained the context behind an NSFW picture she and husband Seth Rollins took.

Becky Lynch has explained the context behind the risque picture of her and husband Seth Rollins which has sent the WWE locker-room into overdrive.

WWE superstar Lynch has a new book coming out and it features a number of never-before-seen photos from her life and career.

But there is one in particular which has caused an almighty stir. Lynch and Rollins did their best impression of Shawn Michaels' Playgirl shoot, by taking a nude selfie with their WWE title belts, which they both won at WrestleMania 35.

Rollins picked up a rapid victory over Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal title, Irish sensation Lynch beat Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in the main event to claim both the Raw and Smackdown Women's championships.

The real-life couple, who have a daughter together, would go on to team together on-screen in the coming weeks.

In the book, the cheeky snap contains 'the caption, "You knew this photo had to exist, didn't you" and a slew of WWE superstars were left open-mouthed after seeing it on a recent UpUpDownDown stream.

Lynch has now revealed that the picture was a mutual call and was taken a day before she lost one of her titles at the Money in the Bank event.

Asked about the photo, Lynch told SPORTbible: "I think it was a joint idea. I had won these two titles, he was a champion too after WrestleMania. We are terrible at taking photos! There was the famous Shawn Michaels photo with him with the belt on and so we wanted to recreate that in a way.

"And we were like, 'Before either of us lose these titles, we need to get this picture. And it came to the last day before I was going to lose the title. It was the day before Money in the Bank 2019, I remember because we had just come back from a European tour. And both of us were just exhausted, it was like, 'We have to get this picture before before these titles are gone'.

'So it just ended up being a little crappy mirror selfie. But I feel like it has earned its way into history."
