Becky Lynch announced her pregnancy on the May 11th edition of Raw, and to the shock of nobody, Jim Cornette had a questionable take on one of wrestling’s biggest stars stepping away from the spotlight to be a mother.

These comments caused a social media backlash, and now Becky Lynch’s fiancé Seth Rollins has responded to Cornette’s comments. Appearing as a guest on one of WWE’s official podcast’s “After The Bell” with Corey Craves that he had lost respect for Cornette.
Rollins would go on to add:
