WWE cameras caught up with the newly-crowned SmackDown Women’s Champion backstage on the blue brand. The Queen said she ended the year by returning to the place where she belonged.

“I’m a little speechless right now. 2022 might be the best year of my life. Even going back to the beginning, I was able to wrestle in Saudi Arabia for the first time. I beat Ronda Rousey for the first time, at WrestleMania which was always a bucket list. Then, I got married. Traveled the world with my husband. And then ending the year where I belong, where I’m home. It was picture perfect, fairy tale. This is the first time I’ve ever been away, since 2015. To come back, before my music hit, I was like, ‘Do I know how to be that?’ I’m just honored to be back and pay back to Ronda. She thought I was gonna let the I Quit match go. When I went home. I thought to myself that I’m a lot of things to a lot of people but one thing I’m not is quitter. So, I waited till the right opportunity… 14 time!”


Charlotte Flair got new entrance theme music during her return to SmackDown as well. It remains to be seen what will Triple H in store next for the record-setting seven-time SmackDown Women’s Champion.
