When friends fright, it often leads to amazing battles.
Tonight on Smackdown Live, it was announced that Charlotte Flair will be defending her Women’s Championship against her former best friend, now turned rival, Becky Lynch at the upcoming 2018 Hell In A Cell pay-per-view.
This friendship, turned rivalry, began at SummerSlam, when Lynch attacked Flair after she captured the title. An all-out brawl occurred a couple of weeks ago, which you can see below:
After spending most of 2018 as allies, Charlotte and Becky found themselves on parallel tracks to the SmackDown Women’s Title when Flair earned her way into the planned Carmella-Becky title bout to make it a Triple Threat. Despite a strong effort from Maiden Ireland, The Queen snatched away Becky’s aspirations of championship glory at SummerSlam when she snuck up from behind and drilled the Irishwoman with Natural Selection to reclaim the title.
Though the victory was technically fair, it snapped something in Becky all the same: The former champion’s response was to ruthlessly attack Charlotte every chance she got, from a blistering verbal takedown two days after her loss to a brutal mugging from behind after Charlotte defended her title against Carmella. It was enough to catch the support of the WWE Universe, who still back Becky despite her ruthlessness, and garner the approval of SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige, who sanctioned the title match for Hell in a Cell.
Becky Lynch as a heel is exactly what her career needs to give it momentum in the final part of 2018. I love the work that she is doing and it is bringing out the best in Charlotte Flair as well. This will be a great match and I can’t wait to see it!
