After being called “sad” by Becky Lynch, wrestling legend Ric Flair has given a scathing response to ‘The Man’ including saying that he will always hold the name – and she should ask her husband.
Becky Lynch was speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour when she went on the attack towards The Nature Boy’s Charlotte Flair, including going so far as to call the current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion “an a**hole”.
When asked if she was concerned that her match with ‘The Queen’ at Survivor Series would turn in to a shoot, Lynch addressed recent comments from Ric Flair and gave her thoughts on the former 16-time World Champion.
That’s what her dad said she was going to do. I saw that tweet. I looked at it and wrote out a response that would have really been quite biting and I deleted it and let it go because I think it’s really sad. This is a legend who is now jealous of me.
It’s cool for me. He’s now trying to use me to get clout and promote whatever he has because he’s dug himself into a hole with other things. I was like, ‘let me let him have it,’ because it’s kind of sad.
Ric Flair has responded to the comments from the current Raw Women’s Champion, saying that he’s “disappointed” with her reaction when all he tried to do was help her by selling the trademark.
So Disappointed! I Did This Out Of Respect For You @BeckyLynchWWE! It Made You Millions & Made Me Nothing. After 40 Years Of Being The Man… The Company Doesn’t Own It, And Neither Do You! I’ll Always Be The Man! Ask Your Husband.

Survivor Series will be the first singles clash between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch since December 2019, with ‘The Man’ recently claiming that the concept of brand supremacy at the show is outdated.
