Becky Lynch has shot back at Ric Flair after the Hall of Famer criticised her recent appearance on Monday Night Raw.
The feud between Ric Flair and Becky Lynch continues to rumble on with no sign of a ceasefire in sight. While the situation had quietened down in recent weeks, Flair once again hit out at Lynch on a recent episode of his Wooooo Nation podcast. The 16-time World Champion criticised the Irish star for a recent promo on Raw where she referred to Ronda Rousey as “Ronnie” as the rivalry between the two continues.
Flair said that Lynch was “out of her mind” before mocking her current character.
“Once again, she’s not ‘Ronnie,’ she’s Ronda Rousey. And anybody who’s stupid enough to call her ‘Ronnie’ and make a joke of her presence, what she brings to the company, is out of their mind, AKA — what is her name now — Big Time Becks. ‘Hey Ronnie, welcome back.’ That’s exciting, that’s really exciting. How about, ‘Thank you Ronda for showing up because I’m not The Man anymore, I’m generic, who am I, Big Time Becks, The Lasskicker, I don’t know,’”
In response, Becky Lynch took to social media writing, “Become so good Ric Flair loses his mind every time you breathe.”
“Work so hard your heroes become your rivals. Then, become so good, Ric Flair loses his mind every time you breathe”- Becky Lynch – February 2022

Ric Flair’s very public spat with Becky Lynch and WWE stems from their use of the phrase “The Man.” The WWE Hall of Famer believes he owns the trademark and in November said that he would “go back and get” it when he was “legally cleared.”
Despite this, a report later suggested that WWE and Lynch are able to use the moniker, and still sell merchandise which heavily features the phrase.
Despite Lynch still being at odds with Ronda Rousey, the former UFC star will be facing Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 38. Meanwhile, the Raw Women’s Champion will face the winner of the upcoming women’s Elimination Chamber match on February 19th.
