Becky Lynch comments on Ric Flair’s trademark for “The Man”

Ric Flair and the WWE have reached at the cross with their dispute over “The Man” catchphrase getting intensified.  The LLC owned by the Nature Boy are going all out to get a trademark for “The Man”, a phrase which has been actively used by Becky Lynch over the past year.

Speaking to ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, the Irish Lass kicker shed some light on her relationship with Flair. She said:

“All I can say about Ric is, I like Ric. He’s been a good friend to me over the years. We’ll see what happens with that,”

Ric Flair had earlier mentioned that how he managed to upset his daughter Charlotte with his pursuit for the trademark and the inevitable tussle against the WWE. He has also spoken high of Lynch and admitted that he wanted to speak to her, but refrained from doing so as he was unsure to what the company has told her about the situation.

    She needs to end him

  • Perhaps everything you’re saying is true, I won’t really dispute any of it. However, “The Man” thing was always stupid with Lynch, and while it made sense to get under Charlotte’s skin when they were feuding for what felt like five years, her still using it now doesn’t make sense, and she should have stopped. It’s always sounded dumb.

    Ric is a sad old man that will do anything to get a quick buck and publicity. He is mismanagement personified.

    I can’t get behind this petty claim. He was fine with it while Becky and Charlotte were feuding, but a gimmick that worked so well is now infuriating him because his name isn’t attached to it anymore? If he had it trademarked prior to the feud I’d agree that Becky shouldn’t use it anymore, but until there is legal standing for it, I’m gonna call out Flair for being exactly what he is, someone looking for an easy pay day. He put in his time, and has racked up quite the fortune over his nearly 50 year career, but the fact that he’s pissed a lot of it away with a lavish lifestyle, multiple divorces, and multiple bankruptcies, just proves that this is a cash grab for a guy that charges $15,000 for a 2 hour appearance, not to mention the price per head for an autographed 8×10 and a selfie. I’ve never been a fan of Flair, but I respect all he has done for the industry and the legacy he has created. It’s just another case of “don’t assume,” he assumed they were gonna pay him for using the phrase despite him not having a trademark? Get real.

    I am with Ric on the Man thing.
