During a recent appearance on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, current WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch discussed her real-life issues with current SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.
Lynch and Flair got into a real life backstage confrontation after the October 22 episode of SmackDown after the show went off the air.
During the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Lynch was asked about the confrontation.
“I don’t know, man. We don’t talk anymore. We don’t talk…so all I’ll say is the locker room needs a hero sometimes. And sometimes somebody’s gotta be a hero. I’m all right being that hero. That’s what I’ll say on that matter.”
Lynch was also asked if having issues with with Flair in real life makes things more difficult with their upcoming matchup at Survivor Series on November 21.
“Oh, 100 percent more difficult…that’s the thing. When you’ve got two people that are wanting to work together to make magic, then you make magic. Sometimes when there’s hostility, when you can’t trust the person, then you never know what’s going to happen. You always have to be on guard. It’s like a game of chess. You have to be thinking two steps, three steps, four steps ahead. What are they gonna do? How am I gonna handle it? If they do this, if they do that, whatever…this business is built on trust. It’s built on working together. That’s the art of it. That’s the beauty of it. If I make you look good, you make me look good. It’s an art. It’s a beautiful art, it’s an art I love more than anything. If people don’t know how to make that art, then it becomes difficult. It becomes tricky and you never really get the full potential. But there’s intrigue there, too, because we never know, was this meant to happen? Was that not meant to happen? What’s gonna go down? There’s interest in both ways. One way, it’s the beautiful pure art of pro wrestling. The other way it’s a bit of a sh*t show. So we’ll see what happens.”
When Lynch was asked if she trusts Flair, she said “no”. Lynch also noted in the interview that she Flair used to be best friends, but things are “difficult between them now”.
