Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch are two of the most important female Superstars in the history of WWE. Both ascended to the main cast together and for years they were very good friends, however, everything went wrong at the end of the last decade.
Since then, different media and personalities from the world of wrestling have tried to explain what spoiled their good relationship. jeff dyeBecky Lynch’s ex-boyfriend until 2019, has been the last to speak on the subject in the podcast Wrestling with Freddy. According to him, it’s all question of competitiveness. These were his words:
“I hope I’m not sharing too much, but they were taking it in a very personal way. I mean, when she and Charlotte were in a rivalry, I would hear her say things like, ‘I can’t believe Charlotte is actually getting mad at me.’ I was like, ‘Guys, you know this is a fictional story, right? You don’t have to be really angry for this to work.”
“I think it’s like in comedy or show business, or maybe even if you work in a warehouse or in a supermarket, you become competitive. You want the promotion or you want the raise or you want some position, and it’s just part of it for both of us.
charlotte miscarried the fact that Becky began to position herself as the face of women’s wrestling. I think it’s not surprising. It didn’t change my perspective, but it was interesting to see how, in a genuine way, when you’re fighting within the roster, it affects her personal life.”
So, as Dye mentions, Lynch’s rise in popularity, added to his fictional rivalry in front of the cameras, would have been the two big triggers that caused friction between the two fighters.
The feud of both fighters was transferred to television in October 2021. On the occasion of the WWE Draft, where the two champions had to change scenery (from Raw to SmackDown and vice versa), they starred in a segment in which they originally had to change the titles, where Becky Lynch would have a ‘Two Belts’ moment holding both championships. Flair went off script and didn’t allow that to happen, causing a huge row backstage.
