Charlotte on If It’s Harder for Women To Get Over, Making Ric Flair Proud, Her Figure Eight Submission

Feb 24, 2016 - by Marc Middleton

– WWE Divas Champion Charlotte just spoke with The Tennessean to promote Monday’s RAW from Nashville. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

If she feels like she’s living in dad Ric Flair’s shadow because he’s a legend:

No one will ever replace Ric Flair. I just want my dad to be proud of me, so every time I get the opportunity to step onstage with him, I just want to know that I’ve prepared for that moment and that I’m doing a good job. He’s the greatest of all time in my eyes, and just like any kid, I want to make my dad proud. … I know what he means to this business and now I have to deliver as well.

Who created her Figure Eight submission:

I was in the ring and my coach, Sara Del Rey, showed me how to put on the Figure Four and she was laughing about it like, “I can’t believe I’m showing Flair’s daughter how to put on the Figure Four.” Then I just wanted to see if I could bridge and I could, so (WWE superstar) Simon Gotch, one of the Vaudevillians, actually came up with the name. He said, “It’s twice as good as your dad’s. Why don’t you call it the Figure Eight?”

If it’s more difficult for women to get over in WWE:

I do think a female can have just as much success when given the opportunity, but it is twice as hard. … I think we do have to work harder for our spot and slowly but surely, the more we produce, the more the fans want to see us. The more they react to us, the harder we work, the more they get invested in characters like Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks. … They can relate to us and once you relate, you get invested in the characters. I think the hardest part about being a woman is finding who you are and being able to let the fans in and feel a connection with you. And to do that you need storylines and you need time and that’s what we’re getting right now.
