Celebrity Jersey Card #629 Becky Lynch & Alexa Bliss

Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly feature in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. With the MLB season upon us, I start marching through all team alphabetically.

Rebecca Quin was born in Limerick, Ireland, where she made her wrestling debut. A severe head injury in 2006 derailed her career for several years, but she returned in 2012, signing with the WWE as Becky Lynch. Since then, she is one of the most popular and successful wrestlers in the company. She is also the wife of fellow WWE wrestler Seth Rollins and the two have a young child. Lynch completed the Celebrity Jersey Cards Grand Slam while repping the New Jersey Devils. Lynch is wearing a #11 jersey, most notably worn by HOFer Brendan Shanahan, although I believe her jersey is an Irish Lass one. I'd take her over Shanahan any day.
Born in Columbus, OH, Alexis Kaufman rose to fame in the WWE as Alexa Bliss. Like Lynch, Bliss is a multi-time WWE champ. She is also a big fan of Disney and cosplay, a hobby which landed her on a few special edition Celebrity Jersey Cards. Although previously appearing on a CJC repping her hometown Columbus Blue Jackets, Bliss earned this one by donning a Las Vegas Golden Knights weater while appearing with Chance, their Gila monster mascot.
