The wrestler was competing against Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin and comedian Rachel Dratch, but she was a complete disaster behind the podium as she became the first player in the show’s history to give zero correct answers.

Fightful Wrestling tweeted the news on X, writing, “Becky Lynch Makes History on Jeopardy, Is The First Player to Give 0 Correct Answers Out of 60 Clues.”

Lynch replied to the harsh assessment of her gameplay, joking, “I never stop making history.”

“At least you own it,” one fan replied with a laughing-crying emoji, while another told her not to take it so hard: “I’ve been doing this at home for decades.”

In her defense they were not celebrity level questions. They were expert level. And she got some right but for technicalities,” a third person wrote, defending her poor performance.

A fourth viewer said the six-time WWE Women’s Champion collapse wasn’t an easy achievement: “It takes talent to get literally zero responses right!”

According to recap site The Jeopardy! Fan, Lynch was the first participant to fail to get a single answer correct right out of the 60 questions that were asked.

It wasn’t a complete flop, however, as Lynch buzzed in with two correct answers on Triple Jeopardy! and Final Jeopardy, where the answer was “Dali” to a clue that read: “Exhumed in 2017 to settle a paternity suit, his mustache had ‘preserved its classic 10-past-10 position’ according to Spanish press.”

Dratch ended up beating out Culkin by just $1, with Lynch taking home $1,000 for her charity supporting The V Foundation and Connor’s Cure.

Nicknamed “The Man,” Lynch (real name Rebecca Quinn), was one of the first women (alongside Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair) to main event WWE’s flagship event, WrestleMania, in 2019. Most recently Lynch was the NXT Women’s Champion, losing the belt to rising star Lyra Valkyria at the Halloween Havoc event after a 42-day reign.
