Becky Lynch Addresses Friendship With Charlotte Flair Following Backstage Incident

Becky Lynch recently spoke with the Sports Illustrated Media podcast for an in-depth interview where she spoke at length about her issues with Charlotte Flair stemming from their backstage incident after an off-script moment in an on-air segment.

During the discussion, “Big Time Becks” spoke about the incident itself and how it affected their friendship.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On not talking with Charlotte Flair anymore following their recent backstage incident: “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.”

On whether having real life heat with an opponent makes things more difficult: “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 s— show. So we’ll see what happens.”

She was then asked if she trusts Flair, to which she replied “No.” When asked if things are still difficult between the two, she said they were and that they were no longer friends. “We used to be best friends.”
