Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch had a real-life confrontation behind the scenes after a segment on SmackDown didn’t turn out as planned. Flair pulled back on her title hen giving it to The Man, something she was never told to do. This resulted in quite a stir.
While appearing on the MMA Hour, Becky Lynch opened up to Ariel Helwani about her little run-in with Charlotte Flair. She seemed casual about it now and explained the situation. I the end, they had a little bit of an argument backstage, because she was “able to hold it together” until then.
“There was a plan in place that was supposed to go one way and if it went one way then everyone would have had a moment and it would have been great. I, in the back, said this isn’t gonna happen and she’s gonna do something else. And she did exactly what I had said she was gonna do. Sometimes things can happen out there and people can get carried away in a moment and you don’t have time to process what happens but when I knew that she was gonna purposely disrespect me, I processed it a lot quicker. So I was able to hold it together until I got backstage. I did what I was supposed to do and then when I got backstage I lost it a little bit…Verbally. I had to go right out and do the dark match. I verbally lost it. I still had a match to go and do so I didn’t have time to be scrapping in the back.”
After Lynch lost it a little bit verbally, “people were talked to” but “at the end of the day I was right.”
Flair and Lynch will get their hands on each other at Survivor Series this Sunday. That champion vs champion match will be quite an interesting situation in Brooklyn.
