A few weeks ago Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair met in the middle of the ring on SmackDown to exchange their championship belts, but things didn’t go according to plan. Charlotte Flair went off script and dropped her belt instead of handing it to Lynch, and Lynch responded by throwing her belt at Charlotte.
Following the segment the two stars go into a heated exchange backstage, and during an appearance on the MMA Hour the Raw Women’s Champion explained why she lost it on Charlotte Flair.
“There was a plan in place that was supposed to go one way and if it went one way, everyone would have had a moment and it would have been great. I, in the back, said, ‘this isn’t going to happen, she’s going to do something else.’ She did exactly what I said she was going to do.
“Sometimes things can happen out there and people can get carried away in the moment, but I knew she was going to purposefully disrespect me, so I processed it a lot quicker and was able to hold it together until I got backstage and then I lost it a little. I lost it. Verbally. I had to do a dark match after, so I verbally lost it. I didn’t have time to scrap in the back.
“At the end of the day, it wasn’t about me. It was about Sasha and her getting into something. ‘What was the need for it? This is stupid.’ We need to go out there and be able to trust each other. We need to trust that one person will do what they said they’re going to do.”
Becky was then asked if other wrestlers took her side in the argument, and she implied that they did.
“Other wrestlers? Other members of the crew. There’s been a lot of patting on the back. Some people don’t feel like they can stand up.”
Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch will face off at Survivor Series on Sunday, November 21. Stay tuned for updates.
