Former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair continues to make the media rounds, and her latest stop was with Planeta Wrestling.
This is where she talked about a wide range of topics including her rivalry with Becky Lynch. The two stars have been paired together in a feud for months now on WWE television. Flair mentioned how she had not been impressed by the fact that Lynch has been calling herself “The Man” as of late. This was when Flair pointed out that her father came up with catchphrase first.
“Becky tries to deflect the situation pretending that I’m the one copying her,” Flair said. “When in reality, she’s the one, like you said, copying my dad’s catch phrase!”
Flair also made an admission during this interview when she stated that the buildup to her match with WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series last year wasn’t the way she originally envisioned.
Keep in mind that this wasn’t the original plan for this show as Lynch was supposed to face Rousey but had to pull out of the contest due to suffering a concussion and a broken nose on an episode of Raw leading up to this event.
“It wasn’t the build up or the scenario that I had envisioned when I first found out that I was gonna replace Becky,” Charlotte explained. “Ronda has been someone I’ve looked up to for years now, and tried to model my career after. So when I found this out, I couldn’t second guess what was gonna happen. I knew that this is how it was supposed to be. And when I faced her, I wanted to give her my very best, the very best of what it takes to be a WWE superstar because she’s new, and I think I did just that.”
