Ric Flair Reveals He Apologized To Becky Lynch Backstage At Raw’s 30th Anniversary

There has been very little love lost between Becky Lynch and Ric Flair dating back to when she began using “The Man” as he nickname. The pair regularly traded barbs, and it only worsened once Lynch fell out with Charlotte. Nevertheless, Ric Flair has revealed on his podcast that after spending time talking to Triple H backstage at Raw Is XXX, he apologized to Lynch, as well as shaking the hand of her husband, Seth Rollins. Noting he saw them with their daughter Roux and realized it wasn’t worth holding a grudge anymore.

It started out with me and Hunter talking for about an hour, which is a private discussion, but resolving a lot of issues that have been lingering for a couple years, and then I apologized to Becky Lynch. I walked up to her and said, “May I speak with you for a minute,” and I said, “I’m sorry that this got to where it is.” I went over and shook Seth Rollins’ hand, and I said, “I’m going to apologize to your wife.”

I’ve just decided that you know, it all comes with the documentary. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in things that you just forget, and you say it so many times for so many years. Actually, the whole “The Man” trademark was decided by someone besides she and I. It’s not that as much as the money that was involved in it, which the company reaps the better part of it anyway. Then I saw them with their child, and I thought, “My God, this is going to be Ashley someday.” It’s not worth it. I am not The Man anymore. The Man is who the people think it is, and basically, we’ve turned it over to social media to decide who The Man is.

Over the years, Flair has built up countless rivalries outside of the ring, which is always disappointing to find out about. Now though, it looks like post-retirement, he is open to letting the past go, which can only be for the best for his own future. Although the real test regarding whether this is a new Flair or not will be whether he lets go of his hatred toward Eric Bischoff next.
