#5. Charlotte Flair’s gesture towards Becky Lynch after WWE SmackDown

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are known to have real-life heat against each other, which was a significant part of their feud heading into Survivor Series 2021. Though many expected the two to stick to their respective brands following the pay-per-view, both women recently clashed in a fatal-four-way match after SmackDown.

The untelevised bout also included Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks, as the latter eventually pinned Lynch to pick up a victory. During the post-match events, fans in attendance captured a kayfabe-breaking moment involving Flair.

As she was leaving, The Queen handed Becky Lynch her RAW Women’s Championship in what seemed to be a nice gesture, judging by the wrestling world’s reactions across Twitter.

You can see this moment unfold in the clips below.


While Charlotte Flair may have briefly broken character, Big Time Becks maintained her gimmick and blamed a young fan for distracting her in the fatal-four-way contest.

This match, although untelevised, marked Lynch’s in-ring return to WWE’s blue brand for the first time since October. The Man’s last televised bout on SmackDown saw her lose to Sasha Banks one-on-one.
