Becky Lynch has recently discussed non-storyline related issues with Charlotte Flair. The Raw Women’s Champion recently appeared on the Sports Illustrated podcast, where the topic of the current relationship between Lynch and Charlotte Flair was brought up:
“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.”
The Man then went on to discuss the aspect of trust in regards to in-ring chemistry, specifically what can go wrong if a wrestler does not completely trust their opponent:
“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 sh*t show. So we’ll see what happens.”
It was then asked whether Becky Lynch does trust Charlotte Flair, to which Lynch responded no. In regards to the friendship between the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champions, Becky stated that her and Flair used to be best friends, but things are difficult now.
