WWE star Becky Lynch recently shared a harrowing story about a near-death experience she had while traveling with fellow wrestler Charlotte Flair. Although the two wrestlers were once friends and travelled together for live events, they have since become rivals in the ring and, according to reports, behind the scenes.
During an appearance on the podcast That’s What She Said back in 2019, Lynch was asked about the scariest moment of her career. In response, she recalled an incident that occurred while driving from one live event to another with Flair.
It was probably the time when I almost died. Charlotte and I were driving from one live event to another and we were on the road in Detroit. Suddenly, two cars sped past us and I remember thinking, ‘Holy crap, that car almost… boom!’ Before I knew it, we were sideswiped and crashed into a wall. We skidded past the impact site and when I looked over at Charlotte, she was covered in red stuff. It turned out to be my meal from the back of the car, but at the time, I thought it was blood.
Becky Lynch And Charlotte Flair Now At Odds
Although the exact date of the accident is unclear, it is known that Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair travelled together for live events during their time in WWE. However, their relationship behind the scenes has been tumultuous in recent years, most notably prior to Survivor Series in 2021 when the two engaged in a heated war of words, and their relationship broke down publicly during a segment on SmackDown.
Speaking about the incident at the time, Lynch noted:
“I think before there was always tension. Now it just feels like it’s a different level. There was always something boiling under the surface for a long time and that was going to come to a head. Many people didn’t see what happened … well, some people saw what happened, but obviously the whole world didn’t see what happened.”
The two were able to put their personal feelings for one another aside long enough to face off in a thriller at Survivor Series, but they have not met in the ring since or been programmed with each other on television.
