More details continue to come out regarding the backstage confrontation between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch at Friday’s SmackDown.
After their Championship Exchange segment, there “were loud words between the two” over Flair disrespecting Lynch by “trying to make her look bad” during the segment. Flair didn’t like the segment originally and went to management to try to convince them that it would make her and her title reign look weak. For more on that, click here.
talkSPORT reports their issues go back a few years as Flair did not appreciate being called “plastic” during a promo by Lynch. It was also said that there was unhappiness from both women about the title exchange segment. Also, Flair pushed to lose the Raw Women’s Title to Bianca Belair on Raw this past Monday because she thought it would benefit both of them.
Per the report, Vince McMahon was said to be unhappy backstage because Flair left the Gorilla position without talking to him.
Fightful reports Flair said that it was an accident when she dropped the title during the segment instead of handing it to Lynch. Finally, the report stated Flair was asked to leave the arena before Lynch’s dark match ended to avoid another confrontation.
Flair is reportedly headed to Orlando to support Andrade at AEW Dynamite.
