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


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.”
