Charlotte Flair has responded to the recent scathing comments from Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch after a very public falling out.
Becky Lynch has been making headlines in recent weeks with interviews where she has claimed she no longer trusts the SmackDown Women’s Champion and referred to Charlotte’s father, WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair, as sad.
Appearing on The Masked Man Show ahead of Survivor Series where Lynch and Flair will square off, Charlotte Flair gave her thoughts on the fraught situation:
“I feel like the only adult in the room. I’ve never used media as a platform other than to talk about my own success and about what I want. Everybody knows I want to be the best.”
“I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain myself. [I feel like] everyone would want to understand that I want to be better, that I didn’t come this far to come this far. But I’ve never used these opportunities as an outlet to tear down someone else’s career.”
Charlotte Flair then discussed the wider WWE audience not appreciating the effort and hard work that she has put in over the years, and says behind the facade on television, she’s just a human being living her brother’s dream:
“I take it personal that the audience can’t see the passion that oozes out of me every single Friday or Monday or pay per view. Or that I just main evented the UK tour every single night with Sasha Banks.”
“You can’t rise to the top with short-lived attention and I have spent the last 7 years earning this spot. I don’t get hot one minute; cold another. I am the consistent diamond of this division. What I mean by that is I am unbreakable.”
“I am also a human being. My real name is Ashley Fliehr. Charlotte has been the [focal] point since 2015. We’ve told the audience that she’s entitled. We’ve told the audience that she’s Ric Flair’s daughter. We’ve told the audience all these things constantly. And Charlotte is the 12-time women’s champion. Ashley, the human, just wants to live her dream for her brother and succeed. And I think people can’t turn that off.”
Charlotte’s younger brother Reid sadly passed away in 2013 aged only 25. Reid Flair has been competing for All Japan Pro Wrestling shortly before his death.
