Charlotte Flair recently spoke with ESPN and below are some highlights from the interview:
Possibly facing Ronda Rousey in the main event at WrestleMania:
“I hope that’s the main event of WrestleMania. That’s my dream. I hope we can make it happen. She really opened the doors for a lot of women. Having that opportunity would be huge. I don’t know what her goals are, but it’s just cool that she wants to be a part of our world.”
Ronda Rousey’s popularity in UFC helping WWE women’s division:
“I thank Ronda for opening the door for us. If Ronda had never been given that main event spot as a female and doing what she did with it, I don’t know if we would have ever been given that chance. Yeah, we were killing it at NXT, but I don’t know if the main roster audience and the business side would have thought the women could carry the main storyline and main event a pay-per-view and we did and I think that’s because they saw how popular Ronda was and if you give us a storyline, we can deliver and we did deliver, so I want to thank her.
It’s exciting to know that there could be a crossover. We see it with the men all the time and it’s such a big attraction. I want to be an attraction for the WWE as a female and I think having those women be a part of the company in some kind of storyline makes the women an attraction. Were we an attraction at WrestleMania 32? Yes, but Brock Lesnar, he’s an attraction. I want to be that and with Ronda Rousey or Cyborg. I think that would be exciting.”
