During the Championship Exchange segment, there was a moment where Flair had to hand the belt to Lynch. However, Flair pulled it away and threw the belt on the mat, which was not the initial plan.

Lynch also adopted the same course of action when Sonya Deville asked for Becky’s title, ‘The Man’ threw her title belt at Flair, which was not in the script.

The reason both the female superstars went off the script and produced this uncalled-for confrontation was that ‘The Queen’ said she didn’t want to look weak, nor did she want her title reign to look weak during the segment.

PWInsider confirmed that Flair complained that Lynch was deliberately trying to make ‘The Queen’ look weak.
