The friendship between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair has reportedly been strained, now Lynch has revealed more details about the current state of their relationship with one another.
Back in October on an episode of Smackdown, Lynch and Flair had their title exchange segment that did not go according to plan. As it was reported by Mike Johnson at PWInsider that Lynch and Flair got into a “heated confrontation” backstage following the segment with “loud words being exchanged” but no physicality between the two occurred.
Furthermore, Sean Ross Sapp with Fightful reported, “There were disagreements with how the segment was going to go, they hadn’t planned on the belt being thrown down, and there were some words exchanged backstage.”
Now, Lynch appeared on the SI Media Podcast, in which she discussed more details about the segment with Flair.
Lynch then talked about how she and Flair interact in the locker room:
“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 would continue and discuss if having heat with her opponent effects things:
“Oh, 100% more difficult. Yeah, yeah, yeah. 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 and 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 is a bit of a shit show. So, we’ll see what happens.”
As well the following conversation took place on the podcast:
SI: Do you trust Charlotte Flair?
SI: Are things difficult right now with Charlotte Flair?
SI: Were you guys’ friends and no longer friends?
Lynch: We used to be best friends.
Finally, Lynch was asked if she would address Flair in a future promo before their match at Survivor Series:
“Perhaps, but also, I just got a new number one contender in Liv Morgan. Honestly, I’d rather address her. She’s my number one. I faced her years ago, but she was in a different position then. I was in a different position then. My attention might be drawn to her, somebody who is worth my attention.”
As for now, with their upcoming match at Survivor Series, can Lynch and Flair remain professional or could things reach an eventual point where things boil over.
