WWE wrestler Becky Lynch had a very emotional reaction when a fan recently gave her a Pearl Jam box set. You can watch video below.
She saw Pearl Jam perform live for the first time at Fenway Park in Boston in 2016.
She told SI, “Someone told me, ‘When you go see Pearl Jam, it’s going to be a spiritual experience,’ and it was,” said Lynch. “It was my first time seeing them live, and I’ve been a lifelong fan. Eddie Vedder’s voice is a million times better live, and I couldn’t believe the passion he put into every single song. They did an encore that lasted for like an hour, and then they did another one.”
“They were playing ‘Black,’ and it’s just one of those songs I listened to in my teenage years when I was going through some tough times,” said Lynch. “They played songs that I listened to when I was getting my heart broken. They played ‘I Am Mine,’ which is one song I was listening to when I was breaking into wrestling during my teen years and I wanted so badly to break into WWE. All these songs made me think, Oh my God, this is the music that got me through all these hard times and motivated me to get where I am, and here I am at Fenway Park watching Pearl Jam.”
