One of those trios you just don’t expect. Earlier this year, Becky Lynch became arguably the biggest women’s star in WWE history as she won the first ever all women’s main event of WrestleMania. That alone is enough to maker her a star for the rest of her career, but The Man character is still popular enough to keep her star on the rise. Now someone is challenging her status.
On Friday, Lynch made a post on Twitter addressing Taylor Swift’s new song The Man. Lynch mentioned that a woman can be the Man and that applies to her. The next day though, Ric Flair made a post of his own, saying that to be the Man, you have to beat the Man, and no one has beaten him yet. Swift has not acknowledged either Lynch or Flair and likely has no idea any of this is taking place.

Lynch has a history with the Flair family. Check out one of her many brawls with Charlotte Flair:
Opinion: This is one of those things that is going to happen every now and then and doesn’t hurt anyone involved. Lynch and Flair get to interact a bit and might get some fans talking while more people hear that Swift has a new song and album out. No one is hurt in any way and the fans get to have some fun out of the whole thing. Maybe WWE can even reference it on television somehow and get a mention from Swift out of the whole thing.
