Becky Lynch is still one of the most popular female WWE Superstars in recent memory. The Man’s meteoric rise to Superstardom back in 2018 is well documented. It propelled her career to the absolute top, which culminated in her winning both the RAW and Smackdown Women’s Championships at WrestleMania 35, defeating both Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey in the main event of the Show of Shows. She is also engaged to WWE Superstar Seth Rollins and the two welcomed their baby girl Roux in December of last year. Becky Lynch’s WWE SummerSlam return plans were leaked as well.
We are told the issue arose after Charlotte Flair was said to have voiced concerns before WWE went on the air, concerned about the Championship Exchange segment that featured Becky trading her Smackdown Women’s Championship belt for Flair’s Raw Women’s Championship belt.
We are told by several who were privy to the situation that Flair was voicing that she didn’t want to look weak nor did she want her title reign to look weak during the segment. Despite those concerns, the segment went on as planned to close Smackdown.
During the Championship Exchange segment, there was a moment where Flair was to hand the belt to Becky but instead pulled it away and threw the belt on the mat, which was not the way that exchange was expected to go.
At that point, Sonya Deville demanded Flair retrieve the belt and hand it to her, which Flair did. Deville then asked for Becky’s title but instead Lynch threw her title belt at Flair, which was also not part of the plan.
Flair picked up the Smackdown belt and did mic work to set up Sasha Banks coming out, which did put the segment back on track with Lynch leaving after teasing a potential Survivor Series showdown with Flair or Banks.
After Flair and Banks had their physical confrontation to close the FOX broadcast, Flair went to the back.
We are told at that point, there was a confrontation between Lynch and Flair over Flair allegedly disrespecting Lynch by “trying to make her look bad”, as one source stated, during the segment and there were loud words between the two.
We are told that the situation was heated but did not get physical.
