Many of us had fan dreams of Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair interacting in person after the Raw Women’s champ cost The Man & The Queen the SmackDown belt at TLC last Sunday in San Jose. Those didn’t come to pass.
But when the Rowdy One got around to addressing her actions and the week’s television on social media earlier today (Dec. 19), we got more of what’s been the program’s bread and butter - internet trash talk. And maybe face-to-face interactions would be better at this point, but we’re still getting the goods. Mostly from you-know-who.
As mentioned, Rousey started it. Her Instagram has the usual crutches - alliteration, website plug - but it’s a solid threat/warning/promise from the baddest woman on the planet:

#TLC wasn’t revenge, it was a warning. @charlottewwe @beckylynchwwe You’re both lucky I let you off so easy. Asuka deserves to be champion more than either of you cheating cowards. And @beckylynchwwe says SHE came at ME head on!? @beckylynchwwe has only ever attacked me when my back was turned - that’s some more #BackwardsBullshitBecky. If you and @charlottewwe are smart you’ll consider the score settled, learn this lesson, move on.... and don’t provoke me again. Check link in bio for context
Which brought a response from Lynch with one of her signature moves, the modified photo/meme. And the usual turning around of her rivals words to mock, insult and dismiss them:
I remember now you said I attacked you with your “pants down,” you little weirdo. Not going to lie though, I did walk in to your dressing room and see an ass - but it was fully dressed. pic.twitter.com/NTAYxf745f— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) December 19, 2018
She saved her best work for her fellow SmackDown Superstar, though:
Hey Charlotte, I’ve replied to Ronnie now, so you can come along behind me, copy me, and put wooo at the end. You know like you do in work.— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) December 19, 2018
I truly can’t stop laughing at that one.
Charlotte did jump in, but she forgot the “wooo”:
I know I’ve asked this before, but... is it Royal Rumble yet?
UPDATE 1 & 2: Ronnie didn’t like being called a weirdo, so she’s accusing Becky of being a panty thief... Lynch may have not liked that, because she just alluded to the head kick that ended Rousey’s MMA mystique...
Just how hard were you kicked in the jaw that one time you little freak? https://t.co/S6sxbQujZk— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) December 19, 2018
For reference, it was pretty damn hard:
