Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Tamina & Lana: SmackDown LIVE, July 25, 2017

WWE superstar Charlotte Flair was recently interviewed by the Ottawa Citizen, where she discussed a number of topics. Most notably were being Ric Flair’s daughter, and the reaction from fans when she debuted on the main roster.

Below are some questions along with “The Queen’s” answers:

On being Ric Flair’s daughter:

“When I debuted on the main roster, people just hated me. They were booing me,” she said. “Social media got to me a bit. They were like, ‘She’s just there because she’s Ric Flair’s daughter.’ I was like, ‘Why doesn’t anybody like me?’ It really got to me. I had to make an executive decision and commit to being what people thought I was. If they think I’m going to be that way, act that way. So it was about committing to being, ‘Yeah, I’m Ric Flair’s daughter, yeah the dirtiest player in the game, yeah I’m entitled, yeah I got here without having to do anything.’ Now I just know how to turn up. It was more about understanding you’re just playing a role.”

On being a face vs. a heel:

“Since I am a babyface now, I am going to put all my energy into being the best babyface ever. My comfort zone and where I feel most natural is being a heel. My character could stay the same and people like my character versus disliking it. It’s more me trying to figure out how that works and staying true to my character regardless of what side I’m on. I do feel more comfortable as a heel, but I’m taking the babyface challenge on as much as I can.”

On the rigor of the job:

“The first thing I always want to tell people is we are in a different city five days a week. It’s not glamorous,” Flair said. “Driving from town to town, living in hotels, sometimes not going home during the week because you have an appearance, you really have to be dedicated to do this job. We don’t have an off-season. Every other sport has an off-season. It just goes to show how tough we are.”

They also discuss the advancement of women in wrestling and more.
