Women’s wrestling has gone through some huge changes over the past few years, and the stars of WWE’s main roster have made history several times.
Next month the women of WWE will get their chance to make history once again when they compete in the first ever women’s Royal Rumble match.
Charlotte Flair is one of the stars who has been at the forefront of the Women’s Revolution in WWE, and she recently told Fox News that right now it’s hard for her to take herself out of the bubble.
“I think because I’m in it, it’s really hard to take myself out of the bubble and see how much we’ve accomplished as a whole. Even now when you look at posters or how many storylines the women have just from three years ago, it’s mind boggling to think that we’ve made such an impact in such a short amount of time. But the future with the Mae Young Classic, where women all over the world competing in one tournament that’s solely just women, that goes to show that who knows how that’s going to translate eventually on the main roster.”
Charlotte Flair is the daughter of two time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, but so far she’s done a great job at carving out her own legacy in the world of professional wrestling. Charlotte has only been wrestling for a few years, but she noted that she now has a whole new understanding when it comes to her father’s love of the business.
“When I look back, I just wish I could have been more understanding in 2008 when he retired, because I just couldn’t figure out why he couldn’t just walk away from the job….But now being apart of the company [WWE] and understanding what it’s like to be in the main event, to feel the rush of the crowd…that’s what he did for his entire life and I understand now why he couldn’t walk away. Now I see why [but] in 2008 I couldn’t understand and I just gave him a hard time and we just went separate ways. But it was a growing process for both of us.”
