Charlotte Flair was recently interviewed by Bleacher Report, where she discussed a number of topics. Among them was an upcoming documentary on A&E about her life, criticism of her current babyface run, her feud with Rhea Ripley, and more.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
On an upcoming episode of Biography: WWE Legends:
“I haven’t seen it yet, but I think it will be refreshing for the fans and maybe the casual viewer to see maybe a softer side of me, opening up things I’ve been through or things I struggle with,” Flair said. “When you see Charlotte Flair… I’m trying not as much right now, but she always has a resting bitch face on. I’m human. I’ve dealt with things, too. Seeing that character show a different side, I think it’s important for people to see we’re all human.”
On fans criticizing her current babyface run:
“It’s affected me my whole career, I think,” Flair said. “I’m like, why am I the one character no one can disconnect from and see that there’s a person there? Like I’m in charge of my storylines? My biological father is Ric Flair, so I think that’s hard for them to push aside as well and a lot of assumption, being the bad guy for so many years.”
“I try really hard not to read online because maybe I’ll open my Twitter and I’m like, ‘I’m putting that down! They’re saying I’m doing a bad job being a good guy!'” she said. “And then I go to these [house] shows or even SmackDown and I’m like, ‘Hey, are you guys hearing what I’m hearing?’ I wish I hadn’t let it affect me so much through the years. … I don’t think I’ve had an opportunity on-screen to really let this phase of my career being the good guy let all of the pieces fall into place.
“I know people will say, ‘She doesn’t feel natural,'” the champ continued. “No, that’s just me being me out there. Right now, I’m just me for the most part. Amped up, obviously, but Charlotte Flair is not good or bad. She’s just entertaining.”
On her feud with Rhea Ripley:
“I think there would have been another match after our Money in the Bank [match] had Nikki A.S.H. not cashed in on me,” Flair said. “I think this is now the ending to that. I think Money in the Bank would’ve probably led to another, but then you have this crazy cash-in out of nowhere and we just never crossed paths again. … In hindsight, I had no control of that. I’m saying it now: I don’t have control. I’m so flattered that people think I had that much power. I’m very flattered, but trust me, I don’t.”
They also discuss not liking her new entrance music at first and more.
