For the first time ever, a current WWE wrestler is on the cover of ESPN The Magazine.
Becky Lynch and GLOW's Alison Brie are on the cover of ESPN The Magazine's Blockbuster issue, which is about the intersection between sports and Hollywood. The magazine will be available on newsstands this Friday (July 12).
ESPN's interview with Lynch and Brie is already available online.
Lynch tweeted about being on the cover: "Last year I said I wanted to be the face of this business that I love so much. We don’t always have to accept the status that’s given to us. It’s been quite a year and it’s an honor to be the first @WWE superstar to be on the cover of @espn magazine"
Season three of GLOW will premiere on Netflix on Friday, August 9. Brie appeared on an episode of SmackDown in June 2018 to promote GLOW's second season.
Charlotte Flair was featured in last year's edition of the Body issue of ESPN The Magazine.
It was announced in April that the print version of ESPN The Magazine would end this September.
WWE also has its own category in the ESPY Awards for the first time this year. Roman Reigns announcing his leukemia is in remission, Lynch winning the Raw and SmackDown Women's titles in the main event of WrestleMania 35, Kofi Kingston defeating Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35, and Ronda Rousey winning her first title in professional wrestling by defeating Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam 2018 are nominated for Best WWE Moment.
The ESPYS will air on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern time tomorrow night (Wednesday, July 10).
