Over the last few weeks fans have been talking a lot about Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair after it was reported that the two top stars got into a heated altercation following the belt exchange on SmackDown a few weeks ago.
It’s no big secret that Lynch and Flair aren’t friends anymore, and during a recent appearance on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani the current Raw Women’s Champion explained her perspective on why her relationship with Charlotte fell apart.
“My star was rising. We were the best of friends and it all worked when she was on top and I was below. We could all see the way things were going in 2019 and people were really rallying behind me and this turn would put me in a different league and I don’t think she could take that and hasn’t been able to take it. I think it’s affected her work, even now. She is potentially one of the greatest, but I’m so in her head that she’s lost it a bit and has lost a step. She’s got that jealously and that little devil on her shoulder. That devil is me always being one step ahead of her and she doesn’t like that. She thought her birthright was that she is the star. Doesn’t matter that I started wrestling when I was 15 and left home and traveled the world to chase the dream. It doesn’t matter that I wasn’t one of the chosen ones. She was born into this and she deserves it. I think that’s her thinking and we know where she gets that thinking from and she hasn’t been able to take it.”
The Man went on to say that she believes when fans chant “Becky” during Charlotte’s segments that the chants, “piss her off so much. I love it. She gave the crowd the finger and said it was because they were disrespecting Rhea. She don’t care about Rhea. It was her own ego.”
Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will face off at the Survivor Series pay-per-view on Sunday, November 21. Stay tuned for updates.
