Charlotte Flair: “I’m arguably the most hated superstar at the moment”
The Austin Chronicle recently interviewed WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair this week. Below are some highlights.
Charlotte Flair on being the most hated Superstar on the roster: “I’m arguably the most hated superstar at the moment. I want to say it’s hit me, but it hasn’t yet,” she said. With another pay-per-view, March’s Fastlane, plus weekly TV shows and live house shows to go, WrestleMania seems a long way away; yet she still appreciates how the industry has changed. “Just the fact that the women are the hottest topic right now – and I’m arguably the most hated superstar at the moment – is exciting. I sometimes sit there thinking, man, how hectic it was getting used to the schedule and being on Raw and SmackDown, and just thinking, ‘Wow, I made it. I’m on the main roster.’ And now to think where I am, it’s been an incredible journey.”
Charlotte Flair on how her group of women elevated everyone’s game: “Being with a group of women who were so hungry, and worked so well together, and then watching the women [on the main roster] not have the same opportunities. And then the women on the main roster seeing the women on NXT getting these opportunities like main-eventing [the NXT-branded PPV] TakeOver, main-eventing live events, and getting the buzz around, not having two-minute matches, but having 20-minute matches. It elevated everyone’s game.”
Charlotte Flair on what she wants the new girls to say: “I want the new girls to come up and say, ‘Hey, I want your spot.’ I’ll say, ‘Try me.’”
