Ric Flair owns the rights to “The Man” name

Jan 8, 2022 - by James Walsh

Becky Lynch has been going by Big Time Becks on WWE programming as of late and appears to have dropped the nickname of ‘The Man.’ According to Ric Flair on his latest podcast (via The Wrestling Observer Newsletter), that’s because he owns the name. He has suggested in the past that this is the case, but it seems WWE is no longer attempting to fight him over it.

Flair said on his show that she can’t be ‘The Man’ anymore because he owns the rights to that name. He alluded to this in a now deleted Instagram post that took a shot at Lynch.

    It sucks that someone who helped shape the industry for decades is now a huge pain in the ass.

    Old man yells at cloud and is pissed that Becky is more over than his little girl.

    Seems stupid to me for a woman to use “The Man” as a nickname anyway. I get what they were implying, but it just sounded odd. If they REALLY wanted to go that route, why not try “The Woman”? “To BE The Woman you gotta BEAT The Woman.”

    If I recall, they did try “The Woman” with Charlotte for about 5 minutes a few years back. They dropped it quick because it was as clunky and awkward as their attempts to put her over.
