Watch as Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch go off-script and disrespect each other in title swap on WWE Smackdown (Video)

On Friday night’s episode of Smackdown, things got tense between the two women’s champions of the WWE.

What was hyped up as a title swap between Becky Lynch, who was the Smackdown Women’s Champion headed to Raw, and Charlotte Flair, the Raw Women’s Champion heading to Smackdown.

It wasn’t the first time that a tire exchange happened, as The New Day and The Street Profits once exchanged the tag team titles, and did so peacefully.

But on Smackdown, things got a bit awkward between “The Man” and “The Queen.”

Charlotte and Becky throwing the belts on the ground and at each other apparently was not part of the script, which lead to the two of them getting into a verbal fight backstage.

Maybe it’s all a work, as if the two are to remain champions of their respective shows, they would be set to face each other at Survivor Series in Brooklyn next month.
