Becky Lynch is still allowed to be "The Man."
In a now-deleted tweet on social media, Ric Flair noted that he owns the rights to the name "The Man," not WWE and Becky Lynch.
The tweet was made in reference to Becky posting a photo of herself with Migos at WWE Day 1. Migos rapper Offset previously put out a song entitled "Ric Flair Drip."
Flair tweeted, "The Mood Is Night & Day! One’s Real & One’s Make Believe! She’s Big Time, But There’s No Drip, And There Never Will Be! And I Thought She Was THE MAN, But I Guess Not Because They Don’t Own It! HA! When Are You Going To Give Up @BeckyLynchWWE? You’re So Far Behind! WOOOOO!”
Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp reports WWE and Becky Lynch are still able to use "The Man" nickname, but they have opted to move away from it. The company continues to sell "The Man" merchandise and can use it whenever they choose.
Lynch has adopted the "Big Time Becks" nickname upon returning at WWE SummerSlam.
Lynch most recently defended the WWE Raw Women's Championship against Liv Morgan at WWE Day 1. She will learn her Royal Rumble opponent on Monday's Raw when Morgan, Bianca Belair, and Doudrop meet in a triple threat match.
