Ric Flair Reveals He Apologized To Becky Lynch Backstage At Raw Is XXX


"The Nature Boy" isn't afraid to apologize when a situation calls for it.

This past Monday night, 'Naitch felt the situation called for it.

Backstage at the WWE Monday Night Raw 30th anniversary show, Ric Flair apparently apologized to Becky Lynch over past comments made stemming from his beef over use of "The Man" moniker after he famously coined the phrase, "To be the man, you've got to beat the man!"

During his "To Be The Man" podcast, Flair spoke about apologizing to "The Man" backstage at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. at the Raw Is XXX special event.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the episode where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.

On how he apologized to Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins at RAW XXX: "I apologized to Becky Lynch. I walked up to her and said, ‘May I speak with you for a minute?’ I just said I’m sorry this ever got to where it is’ I went over and shook Seth Rollins’ hands and I said, ‘I’m gonna apologize to your wife.’ I’ve just decided that, it all came with the documentary. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in things that you just forget and you get so wrapped up in things that you just forget, and you say it so many times for so many years. But ‘The Man’ trademark, the whole thing 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 her with her child, and I thought, ‘God, this will be Ashley someday, and Megan now with Morgan.’ It’s not worth it."

On how he’s not “The Man” anymore: "I am not ‘The Man’ anymore. ‘The Man’ is whoever the people think is. 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’s still playing. It could be Aaron Rodgers in football. It could be LeBron, who I still think is the man in basketball. I will be in some people’s mind ‘The Man’ forever, but you gotta 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 these guys that grew up on me. Then I introduced my daughter and called her what she is, the greatest women’s champion in the history of WWE, and in my estimation, the best worker in the company. But that’s just how I feel personally."

On how he can walk around more freely now and not feel uncomfortable: "I can walk around and not walk by Becky and feel uncomfortable and I can shake Seth Rollins’ hand, and it makes it a better world for me to be in. I feel better about myself. Becky was very receptive and said nice words to me, and so did Seth. My daughter works there, I want it to be perfect. Nothing’s perfect, but you want it to be as best as can be. How many people get to introduce their daughter? That, you’re not gonna see for a long time, something like that. So I feel thankful that I had that opportunity."
