In an interview with NewsHub, New Zealand, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair talks about a number of wrestling related topics. Here are a few highlights from the interview:
Charlotte revealed that being a professional wrestler felt “natural” and that she immediately realised her dream of making a name for herself in the business. However, the “catalyst” in all of this was the death of her brother, Reid Flair.
Flair went on to talk about her bond and relationship with her fellow “Four Horsewomen”:
“I feel that the four of us will always have a special bond from coming up together through NXT, having created so many firsts together. When the four of us were in NXT together we were fighting tooth and nail to make a big difference – to have women mean something in wrestling. Sasha and Bayley stealing the show at the first ever NXT event in Brooklyn. It was amazing. Together we have had all these amazing moments, and I know personally for me those three women are who I looked up to when I started because I wanted to be as good at this as them. The four of us will always share those moments we had.”
Flair also revealed her thoughts on the possibility of going up against former UFC Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania, saying that it would be a special Mania Moment. However, Flair has another very special moment that she would like to create at the Shows of Shows with someone very close to her…
“Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey will create a special Wrestlemania moment, but in saying that another great moment would be my best friend Becky Lynch winning the Royal Rumble and facing me for the title – so many possibilities. I just hope that whoever wins has to face me for the Smackdown Women’s championship at Wrestlemania.”
Finally, Flair ended the interview by making a bold statement regarding the Women’s Revolution:
“With the announcement of the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match, I feel the women’s revolution is complete.”
