Ric Flair apologizes to Becky Lynch

Ric Flair and Becky Lynch didn’t always see eye to eye when it came to the world of professional wrestling, as the two WWE superstars had some pretty significant moments in their careers. One of the many arguments the two made, unrelated to Lynch’s rivalry with Ric’s daughter, Charlotte, was the use of the title “The Man,” as both professional wrestlers waged a war of words when it came to who should hold the title. Shockingly, Flair apparently apologized, giving Lynch the go-ahead to be “the man.”

Ric Flair spoke as part of his podcast, ironically called “To Be The Man” when it came to his final apology to Becky Lynch, which happened on WWE’s Raw XXX:

“I apologized to Becky Lynch. I walked over to her and said, ‘Can I talk to you for a minute?’” I just said I’m sorry this got to where it is.” I went and shook Seth Rollins’ hand and said, “I’m going to apologize to your wife.” I just decided that it all comes with the documentary. Sometimes you get so caught up in things you just forget and you get so caught up in things you forget, so many times over for so many years. But the ‘man’ brand, the whole thing was decided by someone other than her and me, it’s not as much money. Which he was involved in, which the company makes the bulk of anyway. Then I saw her with her baby, and I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is going to be Ashley someday, and Megan is now with Morgan.’ It’s not worth it.”

Flair went one step further, completely ditching “The Man” moniker while also talking about his recent celebration with other all-time wrestlers on the World Wrestling Entertainment roster:

“I’m not ‘the man’ anymore.” The man” is who people think. Basically, we’ve turned it over to social media to decide who the “man” is. Does that make sense? It could be Tom Brady, who still plays. It could be Aaron Rodgers in football. It could be That would be LeBron, who I still think of as the basketball guy. I’ll forever be in some people’s minds “The Man,” but you have to remember, I’m sitting there with Taker and Shawn, and I’m 20 years older than those guys. I’m there on Raw, lucky Enough to celebrate that moment and that time with those guys who grew up on me. Then I introduced my daughter and described her as who she is, the greatest Women’s Champion in WWE history and, in my estimation, the best worker in the company. But that’s how I feel personally.”
