SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair recently spoke with NewsHub in New Zealand. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:
Coming to WWE NXT and immediately realizing she was born to be a pro wrestler:
“When I first showed up, I was knew I was right where I belong. I was comfortable having my dad as a wrestler – everything just felt natural. I did have doubts about if I would be any good, but I knew I belonged almost immediately. It was a just a matter of the trainers believing in me and identifying that I had the talent to achieve anything.”
Her “Four Horsewomen” bond with Sasha Banks, Bayley and Becky Lynch:
“I feel that the four of us will always have a special bond from coming up together through NXT, having created so many firsts together. When the four of us were in NXT together we were fighting tooth and nail to make a big difference – to have women mean something in wrestling. Sasha and Bayley stealing the show at the first ever NXT event in Brooklyn. It was amazing.
“Together we have had all these amazing moments, and I know personally for me those three women are who I looked up to when I started because I wanted to be as good at this as them. The four of us will always share those moments we had.”
Possibly facing Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34, the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match in January:
“Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey will create a special Wrestlemania moment, but in saying that another great moment would be my best friend Becky Lynch winning the Royal Rumble and facing me for the title – so many possibilities. I just hope that whoever wins has to face me for the Smackdown women’s championship at Wrestlemania.
“With the announcement of the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match I feel the women’s revolution is complete.”
