It was announced that Big Time Becks would be Cyndi Lauper on the show this week. This week, the third season of Young Rock starts, and we now know that Becky Lynch will be making her first appearance on the show.
Not as herself, of course, because the sitcom about The Rock’s life isn’t even close to being as good as the real thing. Big Time Becks will play Cyndi Lauper, and The People’s Champ has now released the first photo of Lynch as the famous pop star.
Becky Lynch’s First Move As Cyndi Lauper
“We officially want to welcome Becky Lynch to the cast of YOUNG ROCK. Becky is playing the one and only icon Cyndi Lauper, which is both hard and fun,” Rock wrote on Instagram.
“I was there for Becky’s audition, and we were all blown away by how hard she worked as an actor to become Cyndi Lauper.” Lynch’s version of Lauper meeting other members of The Rock’s family, or at least the actors who play them in Young Rock, is one of the pictures that Rock shared.
Another picture shows Lynch in her full Lauper costume. If you don’t know why Cyndi Lauper is in a show about wrestling history, it’s because she was a guest at Wrestlemania 1 and a big part of why it was such a big deal in the world.
The WrestleMania party of Cyndi Lauper
As for the event that will be re-enacted in the season three premiere of Young Rock, it seems like most of the episode will take place at a party that Cyndi Lauper threw around the same time, so in 1985.
It will be on at the same time as SmackDown, so you’ll have to choose. F4W Online says that Lynch’s role as Lauper was once described as a recurring one. This means that the premiere may not be the last time we see the Irish star on the show.
Even more exciting than seeing Lynch as Lauper for the first time will be hearing her voice for the first time. The former Raw Women’s Champion will probably have to hide her Irish accent to ensure her performance is convincing.
