- Charlotte Responds to Fans Saying She's Pushed Too Often
11-time Women's Champion, Charlotte Flair was on Maria Menounos' daytime talk-show, 'Better Together'. Charlotte discussed a myriad of topics, most notably talking about the criticism that many fans have of her and the WWE when it comes to the company pushing her too often, in their opinion.
When talking about her consistency in WWE, Charlotte had the following to say:
"The issue is, a lot of what has helped me in my career is, I'm consistent. Maybe I'll never be as high, or as low, but I'm able to stay in the game always. I never give people a chance or an opportunity to miss me, so either the audience takes me for granted or they don't. I think that adds to the 'she's a Flair, she's shoved down our throat.' It's so hard for people to see past 'Charlotte's always in the picture,' but this isn't HER storyline. She's a tool in the story they're trying to build."
When asked what is the biggest misconception about her, Charlotte responded:
"My last name. And I'm always in the title picture. But if you look at my last 6 title reigns, it was just, they weren't for me. So that's the misconception, because I'm always in people's face. A regret that Charlotte revealed was that she joined WWE too late. She talked about how many talents in the locker room are significantly younger than her. Man, why did I figure out life so late. I'm in a locker full of 20-year-olds," Charlotte noted. "By no means am I comparing careers, like they have a long way to go at the company. But I'm just like, man I wish at 24. I just had no idea what was going on! I wasn't put together."
