UPDATED: Charlotte has somewhat responded to these allegations from Sienna. Although she didn't address the claims of gimmick infringement directly The Queen seems to be subtlety alluding to it with the following social media updates.
ORIGINAL: Sometimes imitation is the most sincere form of flattery then again other times it's straight up thievery. We've seen several rival companies copy each other in one way or another. Now one GFW Knockout is claiming "The Queen" Charlotte Flair is jacking her look and signature gesture and she doesn't sound happy about it.
It's pretty hard to argue these two don't look similar when you see the side-by-side comparisons. But it's also likely this was all done by accident. But when Charlotte and Becky Lynch started doing the "pinkies up" gesture that might have been the straw to break the peacock's back.
Charlotte has only recently started sporting the peacock feathers since WrestleMania 33. Sienna The Savage obviously took exception to this gimmick infringement. Charlotte's makeup is also pretty close to that of Sienna's with the wings she has coming up from her eyes. So who knows? Sienna might actually be on to something here.
If anything, the 29-year-old Knockout might just be a trendsetter. But she's still not Ric Flair's daughter so the point goes to Charlotte on that one.
On a side-note, Sienna's Wikipedia page currently says "she invented feathers, makeup, and pinkies." That will probably be changed pretty soon though.
