What's the story?
WWE has today reported that there was an altercation between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair at the WWE Performance Center yesterday, which is being investigated by SmackDown Live officials.
In case you didn't know...
Becky Lynch and Charlotte are scheduled to face off at WWE's first ever all-women's pay-per-view, Evolution, on October 28th in WWE's first ever Last Woman Standing Match.
The pair have been embroiled in a rivalry over the WWE SmackDown Women's Championship over the past few weeks which has saw Charlotte spear her rival through the LED screens on the entrance structure. Flair also attacked Lynch during SmackDown 1000 when Lynch appeared on Cutting Edge, where the SmackDown Women's Champion delivered some scathing words in the direction of the Rated-R Superstar.
The last time the pair met in the ring, Lynch defended the SmackDown Championship against Flair at the WWE Super Show-Down. Flair had Lynch in the Figure 8 and looked like she had the win in the bag, but Lynch used her title to escape by hitting Charlotte with the belt to break the hold, getting herself disqualified in the process.
