Charlotte Flair Talks To The Mirror

Charlotte On Veteran Woman Role In WWE, New Talent Trying To Take Her Spot

Former SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair spoke with the folks from The Mirror prior to her match against reigning blue brand women’s champion Becky Lynch at the WWE Super Show-Down special on Saturday morning. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On needing to stay on top of her game: “What I love about the new crop of women is that I look at them and I go ‘wow, I need to up my game’. We continue to hire women who seem to already be polished and who have already made it outside of WWE, and whose whole goal was to get to WWE. That makes me think that I need to work that much harder because this crop of girls can take my spot.”

On what she thinks the future holds for women in WWE: “I am more excited to see what we have built now and what the women who are [coming through] have built for the future because I don’t think it is going to stop at Evolution.”

On essentially now working the role of a relative veteran in the company: “It’s hard to say that I look at myself as a veteran or someone more experienced, because my career still is fairly new. I can’t say that five years is a long time, especially when the women I came up with had experience all over the world before me.”

On what she hopes to represent as a woman in the company: “What I hope to represent for [younger wrestlers] is what it takes for someone to become a WWE superstar – and that’s inside and out of the ring, because there’s so much more – it’s media, it’s Make a Wish, it’s signings and just being a role model outside of the ring.”
