Charlotte Flair Discusses If The WWE Women’s Division Has Taken A Step Back

Published

SmackDown Live

Charlotte Flair was a guest on this weeks episode of WWE After The Bell where she discussed the women’s division in WWE and if’s gone backwards.

The Queen gave a very honest answer when it came to whether the women’s evolution has stepped backwards.


“I think it was a focal point because everything was happening so organically. When Becky Lynch turned on me at SummerSlam when I won the title like that was such an organic moment. Becky and Bayley and Shayna closed out Survivor Series but it’s just not being talked about. I have not watched the match I have to be honest, but people talked about Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch after Hell in a Cell. So, I don’t know, just depends on what is clicking with the audience,” stated Charlotte.

“You have to look for that next big story. That is why we are here, to tell stories. There has to be an organic story for us to sink our teeth into. It’s not that the women aren’t getting the opportunity or the creative or time, but it’s our job and their job to find that next story.”

Flair also spoke about herself as an individual:

“Let me speak from how I feel about the current situation from my performance, I feel like The Queen is held to such a different standard,” admitted Charlotte. “That is a mixed blessing. Unless I am not out there doing above extraordinary or having the greatest match ever it’s like what’s happening? Now that I’m walking into TLC in a tag match I go back and I was thinking about my last year after that TLC match and I go, I found a new gear walking into that Triple Threat match last year.

“Then there was the Royal Rumble and the storytelling at the end of it with Nia Jax and Becky Lynch and then I main evented WrestleMania and then I arguably retired the greatest WWE Superstar that we’ve ever had, Trish Stratus. It’s like, I had all of those moments last year, I felt those moments. Like, with Ronda Rousey last year at Survivor Series that is one of the most legit things I have ever seen, like, how did I fall off? If the bar is set so high maybe this just doesn’t feel like that gear.”

RANDY ORTON UPDATE

After an excellent video package paying tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, we are shown Randy Orton backstage in a mask with burn scars, saying the voices in his head have never been louder. He says three weeks ago he held Alexa Bliss’ fate in his hands, but he showed a side of himself that he didn’t know existed…compassion.

Orton said his next victim arrived like a lamb to the slaughter (Triple H) until she interrupted. Orton says he hasn’t been able to sleep as all he sees is the ball of fire hurtling towards his face, and Randy says he is wearing the mask to protect himself and to shield everyone from the horror he endured.

Randy says he considers himself lucky, and he doesn’t blame Alexa Bliss, he blames The Fiend. He says he knows what The Fiend wants, which is to stop him from achieving the inevitable, which would be a third Royal Rumble victory as he watches clips of his previous two wins.

Orton says everyone in the locker room enjoyed seeing him be burnt, knowing that their biggest threat to the Rumble was gone. However, the Viper vows to remain in the Rumble match. He says he can only compete for as long as he can tolerate the pain, but the funny thing is, he enjoys the pain.

Randy says everyone can thank The Fiend when he burns their Royal Rumble dreams to ashes, as he goes on to main event WrestleMania.

RIC FLAIR & LACEY EVANS ARRIVE TOGETHER

Ric Flair and Lacey Evans are shown earlier today entering WWE Raw today. They’re asked about their relationship and Lacey questions if Charly Caruso is TMZ. She then says there is a reason Ric is known as the ‘Dirtiest Player In The Game,’ and as far as their relationship, she is simply learning from the greatest of all time.

PEYTON ROYCE vs. CHARLOTTE FLAIR

While Charlotte Flair is making her entrance, she gets jumped from behind by Peyton Royce, with the two women brawling until they’re pulled apart by WWE officials. When the match begins, Charlotte Flair starts out very aggressively, attacking Peyton in the corner.

The match spills to the outside with Flair nailing several chops, but Peyton then backs away, only to be sent face-first into the announce table. Charlotte then goes for another chop but Royce avoids it and Charlotte’s hand slaps against the ring post, turning the tide of momentum here.

Flair turns things around again though, pulling Royce up on the top rope, but she then misses with a splash into the corner and Royce then pulls Charlotte down to the mat. Peyton then puts pressure on the Queen in the corner, pushing her foot straight into her neck.

However, Charlotte responds with a shoulder into the midsection and then a huge forearm as she drives Royce into the canvas. But just as Charlotte is on a roll…WOOO, the Nature Boy is here, with Lacey Evans in a classic Flair robe.

With Charlotte distracted, she turns around and gets nailed by a spinning kick from Peyton, yet she is still able to kick out of the pinfall attempt. Peyton then hits a jawbreaker and another big kick to the face, but Royce then tries and fails with an attack from the top rope.

This leads to Flair snapping Royce’s back across her knee as she follows up by slamming her face-first into the ring post. Flair then hits a big boot to Royce, dropping her out of the ring as she calls out Lacey Evans to appear and come and fight her.

Royce once again fights back with some elbow strikes and then several big kicks to the face, but Flair continues to kick out. Royce tries to keep her momentum going, but Flair goes after her knee several times, and she then locks in the Figure Eight which leads to the submission.

Winner: Charlotte Flair
