Charlotte Flair and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch got into a physical altercation at the WWE Performance Center on Saturday.
“The Queen” expressed her excitement on Friday night about going “home” to talk to WWE NXT’s female talent, but things apparently turned sour when “The Irish Lass-Kicker” showed up unannounced.
