Charlotte Flair Opens Up About Relationship With Becky Lynch

Charlotte Flair Opens Up About Relationship With Becky Lynch WWE

Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair has addressed her relationship with Becky Lynch following previous backstage heat.

Following the title exchange segment on the October 22, 2021 edition of SmackDown, in which Lynch and Flair swapped Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships when swapping brands, the duo had a verbal confrontation backstage.

Following their bout at that year’s Survivor Series event, the duo both indicated that they had genuine heat with one another.

On latest episode of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, Flair described herself and Lynch as two alphas who don’t see eye to eye, noting:

“You have two women who want to be the best. There’s no other way to put it. I want to be the best. She wants to be the best. Natural courses of life. She got married and had a baby. I met Manny (Andrade El Idolo) on the road. Maybe we were each other’s crutches at one point. But now, she wants to be the best. I want to be the best. You have two alphas who don’t see eye-to-eye.

“We grew up together on TV, and you see that. People didn’t know how close we were.”

Charlotte Flair hasn’t wrestled since losing her SmackDown Women’s Championship to Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania Backlash in May. Liv Morgan is the current champion after cashing in her Money in the Bank contract on the former UFC star in July.

Becky Lynch is currently out of action after suffering a shoulder injury during her Raw Women’s Championship match at SummerSlam. She recently provided an update on her shoulder, which you can read right here.
