Charlotte Flair and Asuka were formerly rivals in a few years ago in WWE. In fact, Flair was the one who handed Asuka her first loss on the main roster back at WrestleMania 34.
Charlotte Flair returned at WWE TLC last year to team up with Asuka and together, the two won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles from Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
While speaking to WWE’s The Bump, Charlotte Flair talked about her return at WWE TLC. She then discussed her former rivalry with Asuka and how she is glad to be standing beside her now.
Flair then added that Asuka is the centerpiece of Monday Night RAW as she worked very hard throughout the COVID-19 era.
“Seeing the rivalry with Asuka come full circle, that’s what made it special. Not necessarily winning the titles, obviously, that was a bonus, but I wore the gold when I faced her at WrestleMania 34 as a nod to her. I wore the same boots, I just added the white robe, but with the gold accent. To go from her being my mountain to standing beside her, you just never know where your career is going to take you, so that was pretty cool. Being out there with her and truly watching her through the COVID era, being the centerpiece of RAW and holding it together and just working her butt off, I was just proud to be there with her.”
Charlotte Flair and Asuka are set to defend their WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships against Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at The Royal Rumble pay-per-view this Sunday.
