Becky Lynch has given more information on the backstage altercation which occurred between herself and Charlotte Flair after an in-ring segment which saw them trade belts after the WWE Draft.
Speaking to the MMA Hour, Becky confirmed there was an altercation between the two women backstage after the segment.
“There was a plan in place that was supposed to go one way. 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 a moment. You don’t have time to process what happens. But I knew she was going to purposefully disrespect me. I processed it a lot quicker, so 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 verbally lost it. I still had a match to go and do, so I didn’t have time to be scrapping in the back.”
Becky went on to say there was absolutely no need for any issues, and explained why trust and respect are so important within pro-wrestling.
“There was 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. So, I was like, ‘This is just ridiculous.’ You need to go out there and be able to trust each other because that’s what this is. You need to be able to trust that one person is going to do what they said they’re going to do. It’s professional wrestling, it’s a beautiful art that I love. I love it more than anything. It’s telling stories through violence, essentially.
“When somebody goes out and you can’t trust them to do what we’ve agreed on doing, then what are we doing? Because our bodies are in people’s hands, what we do is extremely dangerous. We are trusting somebody with our lives.”
