WWE Hall of Famer believed he had lost Roman Reigns’ respect for drama with Becky Lynch. The latter rose to prominence back in 2018.

Ric Flair is a wrestling legend, one that trancends the business. The Nature Boy breathes and lives the business and is well respected by his peers and looked up to by the ones that have followed him. There was one time however, when the 16-time World Champion thought he had lost Roman Reigns’ respect.

Back in 2018, Becky Lynch rose rose to SuperStardom and started calling herself ‘The Man’. Flair, who also referred himself as ‘The Man’ attempted to trademark the term in 2019. The issue was resloved last year after WWE gained the rights to use “The Man.”

While speaking to Conrad Thompson, Flair revealed that he feared that his disagreement with Becky Lynch had caused Roman Reigns to change his opinion of him. This affected Flair, who looked to talk with the Universal Champion about it.

“I was concerned that I had lost the respect of Roman Reigns. Because when that whole ‘Man’ thing went upside down and all that and I had to file the trademark, whatever transpired, it means nothing now.

“I think people, I heard that he… and I walked right up to him. I said, ‘Can I have a minute of your time?’ and I said, ‘Hey, it means a lot to me.’ I mean, you want the kids [current WWE Superstars] to look forward to you coming, not, ‘Oh man, here he comes again.’ Does that make sense? Especially when you have a daughter who is at the most elite position she could be in.”
