Charlotte Flair shares which of her matches is “extremely overlooked”
Charlotte Flair shared with WWE’s The Bump which match of her career with WWE has been what she considers “extremely overlooked”.
In 2018, Flair and Becky Lynch competed in a Last Woman Standing match, prior to their WrestleMania 35 main event. Flair shared how she and Lynch set out to turn their match into one of the most memorable.
“It’s hard to say which match is the best match of my career, because I feel like I play different roles in different matches. Like with Becky, I play one role, and then when I was wrestling say Trish [Stratus] or Asuka, I play another role.
I think what made this match so special was [that] we were on a show with all the women from the past, who have helped develop women of the present and future. We wanted to prove that she was ‘The Man’ of the division, and I was ‘The Queen’ of the division. No matter what, we just wanted to have the best match on an all-female show.”
Despite her match with Lynch being one of the most memorable of her career, Flair shared how her match against Ronda Rousey from 2018’s Survivor Series will go down as her most overlooked match.
“I do feel like people talk about my matches, but that one doesn’t get brought up as much. I was on SmackDown and I was told, ‘We need you to wrestle Ronda this weekend because Becky is hurt.’ I was like, ‘My dream match! There’s going to be a story built-in.'”
Flair continued, “For three days, I sat in L.A. thinking to myself, ‘How do I prove that this is my spot?’ You’re going to see two athletes go out there and make it a main event without a story. I really had to think about how I was going to approach my rivalry with Becky, and how I was going to approach the match with Ronda. My match with her reminded me that I’m big, I’m fast and I’m strong. I think that match is extremely overlooked.”
Flair is currently taking time off due to complications from breast surgery. Her return has not been estimated.
