Ariel Helwani spoke to Charlotte Flair about BT Sport, where she said that her current title run is not one of her favorite. Although the Queen was able to defend her title against Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania, she still wants to be a champion.
I can’t say that this title reign has been one of my favorites. Because I haven’t had an opportunity, due to unfortunate events to defend the title as many times as I would like. But in terms of when I came back after WrestleMania 37 that I missed, and came back as the Opportunity, I feel like it’s been the most confident my character has been since before, it’s been like a good three-and-a-half years, I think.
Well, like Toni Storm in the middle of our storyline, she left. Then there hasn’t really been anybody on SmackDown,” Flair claimed. “I had the opportunity to face Naomi in a title match on SmackDown, I have been wanting to wrestle her for like five years. So I would have liked to have been more of a fighting champion.
Paul Heyman claimed recently that Charlotte Flair does not realize how great she is. Flair talked about this, saying that it is because she keeps growing every year. She said
I’ve had a pep talk. You should never walk away and be like, ‘that was amazing,’ you can nitpick anything. No, I know I am really good. But when you know there can be more, and I feel like I grow every single year. That’s the thing if you watched back from 32 to now. Like, if I could go back and redo all of my vs. Sasha like we were such babies. I was just learning the business. Now I am like, ‘okay, I get all aspects of it.’ I would love to redo that feud.
Charlotte Flair spoke out about her relationship with Heyman. She talks to him if she feels the work she does isn’t enough. Flair revealed:
I have gone to him a few times over the course of my career. If he says something nice about me in an interview I will always, god this was like a couple of years ago. I think I was in NXT, and Sasha and I had just a main event, San Jose. He was like, ‘you’re the future.’ That stuck with me. I think I’ve gone to him twice when I’ve felt like I wasn’t doing a good job, and how do I do this? He was like, ‘you just don’t realize even what you’re delivering because you’re so in your own head.
