Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are two of the most popular wrestlers in the world right now. While their fame has come as a result of their abilities inside the ring, their abilities to look amazing outside of the ring should not be undersold.
Neither Lynch nor Charlotte were recruited for their looks. Their looks just happened to be gravy on top of the main course. Lynch toiled away on the independent scene for a decade before being signed to WWE. She competed all over the world and worked odd jobs to support herself as she chased her dreams. Charlotte didn't decide to go into wrestling until she was 26. As soon as she did, however, WWE signed her up as quickly as they could. She would be in NXT not long after.
Nowadays on SmackDown Live, Becky and Charlotte are best friends. They seem to both enjoy drinking tea as well, though nobody else seems sure of just why that has become their thing. As others have pointed out to Becky, however, Charlotte has turned on her before and most likely will do so again. Until that time, however, here are 15 pictures of Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch that will blow your mind.
15 Becky Lynch In Magic: The Gathering
This is Becky Lynch looking very much like her doppelganger from Magic: The Gathering. The character Becky Lynch's look is based after is named Chandra Nalaar. Much like Becky Lynch is known to shoot "straight fire!" so too does Nalaar. In the card game, Nalaar is a sorceress who can shoot out flames.
The other note about Lynch's look is that it is also said to be inspired by Steampunk, which is a genre of science fiction based on technologies from steam-powered eras. Lynch is apparently really stoked on that stuff.
The change in look for Becky Lynch while in NXT saved her from a potentially career-threatening gimmick. No matter how good Lynch's matches were in NXT, she wasn't going to be able to pull off being an Irish jig dancer. Nobody is that good. Not even Ric Flair. Actually, maybe Ric Flair.
14 Post-Workout Heat
Charlotte posts a lot of post-workout selfies. In researching this article we have seen Charlotte in a lot of workout clothes. She seems to rarely wear the same thing twice either.
WWE does have a deal with Tapout, so the clothing company probably doesn't mind when Charlotte sends a photo like this out to the entire WWE Universe. The WWE Universe doesn't mind it either.
Tapout is a clothing company which was originally based in MMA. They ended up sponsoring many of the early fighters for the UFC and built a clothing empire based on the exposure it brought them. Now that the UFC is the sole domain of Reebok, Tapout has moved into sports entertainment. If recent rumors are correct, we could be seeing Ronda Rousey wearing some Tapout gear in the not too distant future. Let's hope she posts some selfies like this one as well.
13 Becky On The Beach
This was one of the first photo-shoots Becky Lynch took part in after her character changed from a ridiculous Irish stereotype to the Lass Kicker we see today. The orange hair tends to stick out from her pale Irish complexion.
Lynch has probably spent a lot of time on beaches throughout her life so far. Before being signed to WWE, Becky worked as a flight attendant. Working for an airline company sent Becky all over the world, just as her WWE career is doing for her today.
Lynch has sort of fallen down the rankings on SmackDown Live these days. Naomi, Charlotte, and Carmella are occupying the top contender spots for Natalya's championship, and Lynch has fallen out of the mix somewhat. Don't expect things to stay that way for long.
12 Charlotte On The Beach
Charlotte Flair is rocking a bikini in the above beach photo-shoot. WWE has been having their female performers model in such shoots for nearly two decades now.
Back in the Attitude Era, WWE marketed a video entitled Divas in Paradise and promptly made themselves a bunch of money. Ever since then, they've learned the value of their female performers dressed only in swimwear.
Charlotte Flair is currently a babyface on the SmackDown Live roster, but one has to wonder how long that will be the case for. We've seen Charlotte stoop to no ends to capture the Women's Championship, how long until she grows tired of being without her belt? Make no mistake about it, she will turn on Becky Lynch in an instant (again) if it will help her get back to the top again.
11 Becky Lynch Pumping Iron
Seen here working out with the chain the Junkyard Dog used to wear around his neck, Becky Lynch is a solid athlete. The 30-year-old began her training at only 15 years of age in Ireland, which sounds rather dangerous.
One of the instructors who allowed a girl of such young age to train was Finn Balor, who himself was only in his early 20s at the time. Finn had opened up NWA: Ireland in his home country and an accompanying school. Whether Becky started lifting with JYD's chain back then or not is currently not known....
While Lynch was waiting on her WWE dream to come true she also made inroads to becoming an actress. She even did some stunts on the set of Vikings. Eventually WWE finally did come calling and the rest is history.
10 Charlotte Flair Risque Photo-Shoot
Not long after Charlotte started becoming more well known to WWE fans, the promotion had her take part in the above photo-shoot. We are glad they did!
Charlotte is drop dead gorgeous, and the above photo is solid evidence of this fact. This is a rare photo of Charlotte before she became the Queen of SmackDown, or the multi-time Raw Women's Champion.
Charlotte has had a rough summer unfortunately. Her father was hospitalized recently in what looked to be a near-death situation for him. In true Ric Flair fashion, however, he escaped death and then promptly started cutting promos on Twitter posts and marketting t-shirts with slogans about how he isn't dead yet.
Not long ago, Charlotte rejoined the SmackDown Live tour once it became clear that her father was going to pull through.
9 Becky Got Back
Here is Becky Lynch fully embracing a standard modelling pose; head and posterior both facing the camera. Basically this move is done to get both her backside and face into the same picture. Lynch has the look down pat, and we thank her for that!
Lynch keeps things fairly covered up while wrestling. Unfortunately for her fans, she has not embraced the booty short styling that Alexa Bliss and Nikki Bella have. Perhaps that's Becky not wanting her assets to outshine her talent because she certainly has the booty for said booty shorts. There is even speculation that Becky eats her Booty O's on the regular!
Had WWE kept with her original gimmick, however, we'd never get to see her ravishing glutes in the ring. Lynch's first match in NXT she was an Irish jig dancing stereotype, though luckily the gimmick was quickly abandoned.
8 The Glutes Of A Queen
Charlotte Flair was evidently pleased with how her workout went the day she took this photo. The former multi-time champion appears to be showing off her impressive glute muscles. Hey, it takes some strong glutes to keep her opponents locked in her figure-eight, so she's got to work those things out.
Flair needs to stay in good shape as she'll most likely be one of the top draws in all of female wrestling throughout the rest of her career. As WWE continues to build their Women's Divisions, Flair has the name and ability to be a perennial main event star and champion for the long haul.
With rumors running rampant that Ronda Rousey is on her way to WWE, it begs the question of who her first opponent might be. Many have said that the first females to main event a WrestleMania could be Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey.
7 Becky And The Barn
It's not exactly clear why Becky Lynch is posing for this photo-shoot inside a barn. She does appear to be sucking on a piece of straw and/or pretending it is a cigarette, which at least makes for an interesting photo.
Perhaps this photo-shoot took place during a period the company was mulling over a possible farmers gimmick for Lynch. Speaking of Lynch's gimmick, her orange-haired goggle-wearing look is actually inspired by a character from Magic: the Gathering, a popular role playing card game. The character Chandra Nalaar in the card game also wears goggles and has fiery orange hair. This wouldn't be the first time WWE has borrowed a character look from a role playing game. The character of Gangrel back in the Attitude era also had its origins from a role playing game, one that is particularly vampire-based.
6 Pink & Pineapple
Despite being a rival of Natalya's, Charlotte seems to really enjoy the color pink. In the photo above she appears to be wearing workout pants that have pink pineapples on them. Charlotte is also dawning a neon pink Tapout tank-top. Like most of the other women on the roster, Charlotte takes the selfie showing off her pretty neat gear.
What stands out more than the pink in this photo is Charlotte's well-defined abs. That seems to be what Charlotte is showing off in the photo as well, although the pink pineapples on her pants may also serve as some motivation for the picture. Flair has said she took solace in going to the gym after her brother Reid passed away. It's clear she spends a great deal of time there. How much time she spends wearing pink pineapples while at the gym still remains unknown.
5 Becky's Ab Game
Check out those abs on Becky! Why the WWE doesn't dress her in outfits that better show off her ripped abdomen is anyone's guess. This picture also illustrates how Becky Lynch, much like Charlotte Flair, also likes the color pink. Oddly enough, however, Becky isn't wearing any pink on her clothing aside from literally the word pink on her top. Becky might be sucking in a little for this picture, but it's entirely possible that no photo of someone's abs has ever been taken without that being the case, so we digress!
For someone who is in as good of shape as Becky, it can be considered surprising that she's as covered up as she is while wrestling. Perhaps WWE is simply trying to not have Becky's physical prowess not distract away from her athletic abilities.
4 The Look Of A Queen
Charlotte Flair's character has become something of a regal-esque figure in the last couple of years. Now that she and the other women of WWE's women's revolution are no longer rookies, some of their true personalities are beginning to shine more clearly. No bigger example of this exists than Charlotte Flair.
While Charlotte was never awkward on the microphone, she has really become comfortable with her persona over the last year. When Charlotte has the mic now, she demands almost as much attention from audiences than her father used to. Nobody can quite do that as well as Ric Flair, however.
Speaking of Charlotte and her father, the father-daughter duo released the book Second Nature this year, chronicling Charlotte's rise to the WWE and the trials and tribulations the family has dealt with during that time.
3 Backstage Beauty
It appears as though the photographer has given Becky the direction of "walk up to the wall and pretend someone has glued your backside to it. Then we want you to look at the camera and act like this is no big deal". It's a completely unnatural position for someone to be contorted in. Nobody has found themselves in a position like that organically, unless of course they need to take a quick bathroom type of break...
Being able to follow ridiculous direction is part of the job at WWE after all, so it was good she had this photo-shoot to prepare her. Thankfully Becky is in WWE during a good period for women's wrestling or this photo would serve as an analogy for her whole career.
2 The Queen Of WrestleMania
Some would say this is Charlotte Flair at her absolute hottest. This is Charlotte at this past WrestleMania looking like a larger than life Superstar. Somehow Charlotte Flair has captured all of her father's star power in a way that David Flair failed completely at.
In many ways, she's similar to her father as well. If you saw Charlotte Flair without all the glitz and glamour of the WWE machine she doesn't stick out that much, at least not any more than a tall blonde normally would. Same thing goes for her father, outside of a wrestling ring you would hardly even believe he was an athlete. Yet put them in front of a camera and there is some type of natural draw that both Ric and Charlotte Flair have. Ric must be loving watching Charlotte's career develop as it has.
1 Sizzling BFF Selfie
Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair really are good friends. They both went through WWE developmental at the same time, and as we've seen in recent years, wrestlers who train together tend to form backstage alliances.
Their off-screen friendship has now moved on-screen again. That Charlotte once turned on Becky in a rather public and violent manner is either simply forgotten about or ignored. They also seem to be using the hand-signal of drinking from a dainty tea cup in the same way the Young Bucks throw up the "Too Sweet" hand sign.
Over the course of the next five years, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch will be two of the most important female wrestlers in WWE. Flair more than Lynch but Lynch will have a great purpose as well. It's only a matter of time until Charlotte turns on her, however.
