Ric Flair has hit out at WWE superstar Becky Lynch as their war of words heats up days before she faces Charlotte Flair at Survivor Series.
The Nature Boy didn’t take too kindly to her comments on Raw this week as he targeted her on twitter, and Big Time Becks – who took over The Man nickname from the 16-time world champion – delivered a scathing response this week.
Appearing on MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, she said: ‘Look, I saw that tweet. The one you’re referring to, the one I’m referring to.
‘I wrote out a response that would’ve been quite biting, and I deleted it and I let it go because I think it’s really sad. This was a legend at one point. This legend, a 16 World Champion Ric Flair, is now jealous of me.
‘That’s cool, it’s cool for me. And he’s now trying to use me to get clout, to promote whatever he has going on next because he’s dug himself into a bit of a hole with other things.
‘So I kind of just was like “Ah, let me let him out of it because it’s kind of sad”, you know? It’s kind of sad.’
The tweet in question saw him claim there isn’t enough ‘choreography’ in the industry to save Lynch when she faces his daughter on Sunday night at Survivor Series.
It didn’t long for Naitch to fire back again, as he shared a news article referencing him giving up the trademarks to The Man, while insisting he will always be the one behind the moniker.
He wrote: ‘So Disappointed! I Did This Out Of Respect For You @BeckyLynchWWE! It Made You Millions & Made Me Nothing. After 40 Years Of Being The Man… The Company Doesn’t Own It, And Neither Do You! I’ll Always Be The Man! Ask Your Husband. (sic)’
Ric again took to Twitter shortly after that tweet, insisting he will always ‘respect’ someone’s opinion and that he’s finished with ‘defending [his] legacy’.
However, he still hinted that he’s got more to say next week on the second episode of his Wooo Nation Uncensored podcast.
In Closing, I’m Done Defending My Legacy! I APPRECIATE Everyone’s Hard Work And Will Respect Everyone’s Opinion To Agree Or Disagree! All I Can Say Is The Paper Trail Is Always The Be All And End All! Hear It All Next Wednesday On @FlairUncensored! Let’s Focus On @AEW Tonight!
