WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair on taking on BFF Becky Lynch: 'You hit your friends harder'

August 17, 2018 - 2:40 pm

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- For WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair, taking on fellow Superstar Becky Lynch at the sold-out WWE SummerSlam on Sunday at Brooklyn’s Barlcays Center, could be an awkward situation.

After all, they’re best friends.

But for Flair, their friendship can withstand the competition.

“I think that’s why Becky and I are so close, because we want the same things,” Flair told 1010 WINS’ Kyle McMorrow. “Wrestling means so much to both of us. We are very competitive. And we push each other. You hit your friends harder -- especially your best friends.”

Despite the competitive nature of the WWE world, Flair said, “I don’t think there will be hurt feelings. There’s nothing more that I want than to see Becky succeed. She deserves a championship. She’s one of the hardest workers I know.”

But their friendship doesn’t come in the way of Flair’s desire to emerge the victor.

“The other side of it, is from day one, I’ve always wanted to be a champion,” she said. “I want to be the best and that has nothing to do with our friendship. We’re on the same brand it just so happens, and we’re going to have to face each other. If she wins, I’ll be ecstatic for her. And it’s going to make me work that much harder.”

Flair has eye on challenging another Superstar, though: Ronda Rousey.

“I want to face her,” Flair said. “When I think of Wrestlemania and headlining, I think of the biggest stories, the biggest stars. I just know to be in the main event picture, it would take the right storyline.”

And for Flair, that storyline is taking on Rousey.

Your move, Rousey.

WWE SuperSlam will air live on the WWE Network at 7 p.m Sunday.
