Becky Lynch is one of the WWE's most recognizable stars. Nicknamed "The Man", Becky Lynch's illustrious career has made her a fan favourite and garnered countless accolades.

The EST of WWE, Bianca Belair and her ferocious ponytail took the WWE by storm in 2016 and haven't looked back. Bianca Belair is most famous for her status as the longest-reigning Raw Women's Champion, her reign lasting 420 days.

Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair are long-standing foes in the ring, and now they enter Fortnite together. With their credentials, there's no denying that these two wrestlers deserve a spot in the Icon Series.

As it stands, this Fortnite x WWE crossover will likely be limited to the Item Shop. There are no details on Fortnite x WWE Quests, POIs, Mythics, or the like. If anything changes, we'll be the first to let you know!
