Becky Lynch On Backstage Confrontation With Charlotte Flair – “I Lost It”

Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair

Becky Lynch has lifted the lid on her recent backstage altercation with Charlotte Flair, admitting that she “lost it” adding that she knew Flair would “purposely disrespect her.”

After being drafted to the ‘wrong’ brand at the WWE Draft, Lynch and Flair were set to trade titles, with Lynch having the SmackDown Women’s Title and Flair carrying the Raw Women’s Title.

On SmackDown, Sonya Deville presided over The Man and The Queen exchanging championships, and things appeared to quickly devolve. According to reports, Lynch was supposed to hold both title belts at one point in a homage to ‘Becky Two Belts,’ but Flair appeared to drop her title to the mat rather than let Lynch have it.

It was later reported that the pair got into a heated confrontation backstage in full view of WWE management.

Speaking during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Lynch opened up about the altercation, claiming that she knew that Flair wouldn’t go along with the plan, “purposely disrespecting” her instead.

“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 going to happen, she’s gonna do something out there’ and she did exactly what I 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 she was going to purposefully disrespect me, I processed it a lot quicker. 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.”

“I lost it. I lost it verbally. I had to go out and do the dark match right after so I verbally lost it and I still had a match to go and do so I didn’t have time to be scrapping in the back.”

Becky Lynch admitted that she “lost it” after the segment, going to call it “ridiculous” as the main story on the show was supposed to be setting up a feud between Flair and Sasha Banks.

“Look it was supposed to go a certain way and when I saw it happening, I was like ‘Ahh, I knew it, I knew it.’ I told people beforehand that this was what was gonna happen, she was gonna make it really hard to do this angle and then it happened so I just lost it.”

“I was able to process it because I knew this was gonna happen, I knew that I wasn’t gonna be able to do my thing and there was just no need for it because at the end of the day it wasn’t about me. It was about Sasha and her getting into something and I was like ‘This is just stupid, this is just ridiculous.’”

The Man went on to confirm that the two women no longer like each other, revealing that the issues between them began in 2019.

“We don’t like each other. We used to. My star was rising. We were the best of friends. It all worked when she was on top and I was below. We could all see the way things were going in 2019. She couldn’t take that and hasn’t been able to ever since.”

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are scheduled to meet at Survivor Series on November 21st in a battle of the champions.
