Charlotte Flair’s booking in WWE is often a controversial topic of conversation. Fans were just fed up with seeing Flair in the main event picture, which is why they were happy after Flair lost the title.

At WrestleMania Backlash, Ronda Rousey challenged Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship in an ‘I Quit’ match. Rousey ultimately beat The Queen for the title.

Since then, Flair has been absent from WWE television. While speaking to Steve Austin on the Broken Skull Sessions, Charlotte Flair talked about her hiatus and eventual return. Flair admitted that she is struggling with how she can evolve.

“The problem with me is I always want to be on top. I never want to slow down and if someone didn’t tell me to slow down and smell the roses, I would just constantly be working because I didn’t find myself or find who I was and all these things until I started working. Since 2012, that’s why I’m here. Highs and lows, I wish Backlash had been my Mania match. Things happen, whatever, but I left on a high. I’m still looking for that next big feud, I’m still looking for that next big match. You’ve got Rhea (Ripley) probably wanting to beat me. Bianca (Belair), Liv (Morgan). There is so much for me to be excited for.


The problem is, for me, I could just keep going. I always want to be better and sometimes being a perfectionist can get…Mania, I wanted it to be too perfect and when I got to Backlash, I was like, ‘You do you, boo.’ That’s why it came across…this is my opinion, I do want to come back with a different layer. I came back after last year missing Mania with The Opportunity, just changing my clothes, I want my body to look better, I’ve gotten in better shape, changed the hair up a little, what is that next layer? I can tell you it’s not going to be a good guy [laughs]. What does it look like? Am I darker? At the same time, I’m like, don’t fix something that is not broken, but you always need to evolve somehow, and what does that look like?”

She has already been advertised for future episode of Friday Night Smackdown. We’ll have to see what WWE has planned for her once she is back.
