The current WWE RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, has reached unparalleled levels of success in WWE’s women’s division after she deemed herself “The Man” last summer. But since then, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has taken issue with WWE and Lynch freely using the term to describe Lynch’s character.
Flair has even filed for the name to be trademarked under him, saying that he would be completely fine with Lynch using the term if WWE would pay him while using it.
Lynch has now spoken out to ESPN’s Marc Raimondi about Flair attempting to trademark “The Man” for his own.
“All I can say about Ric is, I like Ric,” Lynch said. “He’s been a good friend to me over the years. We’ll see what happens with that.'”
You can see the full tweet below:
The two first started trading shots on Twitter this past August when Lynch caught wind of Flair’s trademark filing. As seen below, Lynch responded to Flair’s, ‘To Be The Man, You Gotta Beat THE MAN!’, with, ‘I am The Man.’
