Charlotte Flair Talks Her Inspirations In Wrestling

Former eleven times WWE women’s Championship Charlotte Flair recently spoke about her inspirations in professional wrestling. Charlotte Flair is working in WWE for almost a decade and she is going really strong.

A lot of people do not know the fact that Charlotte’s first appearance was not for WWE and it was not in some recent years. She first appeared in a professional wrestling promotion was back in 2000 in the World Championship Wrestling when she was only 14.

Charlotte Flair Talks Her Inspirations In Wrestling

She made her in ring debut on 2013 in episode of NXT. Her first match was against Bayley and she was very impressive in a first match after she defeated Bayley. After competing in the NXT for two years she made her main roster debut in 2015 as a part of the women’s revolution.

Right now Charlotte has listed a total of 14 championships by her name in WWE, among them are 11 WWE Women’s Championships (RAW and Smackdown combined), two NXT Women’s Championship and one time WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Indeed, she is one of the most famous woman wrestler in WWE right now.

Charlotte Flair who is a former eleven times WWE Women’s Champion recently spoke to Out of Character with Ryan Satin where she talked about her inspirations in professional wrestling. She said;

“When I was watching, I didn’t see myself in that light as this beautiful Diva. I just didn’t. I’m just looking at Torrie Wilson going, ‘Wow, you are the most beautiful woman in the world.’ Or I remember seeing Michelle McCool in makeup with my dad when he retired in Orlando.

“I was like 21 or 22 at this time. I walked past her and was like, ‘Gosh. She’s so glamorous. What’s it like to wear boots like that? Or an outfit like that?’

“I was front row when Lita and Trish main evented in Charlotte, North Carolina, with my friends, and to think, at that time, I was a senior in high school. It was like, ‘Oh, this is cool.’ It’s easier to assume that that’s what I wanted to do my whole life than to think that actually, no. I have a story, and I didn’t care about wrestling. It was because of my brother.”

WWE Summerslam 2021: Triple Threat Championship Match Announced

WWE SummerSlam 2021 received the first match on the card in the form of a Triple Threat over the RAW Women’s Championship. This week’s RAW opened up with new RAW Women’s Champion Nikki Cross A.S.H. celebrating her title win from last week. It occurred after the former champion was knocked by Rhea Ripley following a brawl around the floor.

Nikki Cross A.S.H then ran out to successfully cash-in her Money In the Bank contract on Charlotte Flair, who had just won the title the night before at MITB PPV from Rhea Ripley. Flair got herself disqualified against Ripley in last week’s RAW main event in their rematch, but then Ripley attacked Flair after the match, setting up the perfect stage for Nikki to cash-in.

Charlotte Flair then interrupted last night’s RAW opener as she crashed in Nikki’s celebrations. She went on a rant about how she wanted her rematch at WWE SummerSlam 2021 for the title. Rhea Ripley then arrived at the scene making her own point on how she deserves another opportunity at the title. The three Superstars continued to have words.

WWE Officials Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce then came out as Deville mentioned that it’s only fair that three of them remain involved in the title match. She and Pearce then made the Triple Threat official for WWE SummerSlam 2021 with the lineup being Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Nikki Cross A.S.H (c) for the Raw Women’s Championship.

Charlotte Flair was obviously not happy with the announcement as she wanted a singles title match opportunity, right there. As a result, a contender’s match was announced in the main event segment where Flair could expect a title shot on her own prior to WWE SummerSlam 2021. Flair eventually won that match to send a message to the champion.

WWE Raw ended with Flair putting down Cross with a big boot to the face as the duo is scheduled to compete in a rematch for next week. Meanwhile, the Triple Threat title bout is the first match to be officially confirmed for WWE SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view event, set to take place on Saturday, August 21 from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

WWE Raw Preview (26/07/21): Bobby Lashley Responds; Championship Win Celebration

WWE Raw heads towards SummerSlam 2021 as the path got interesting over the past week. A number of returns amped things up, big-time on the way to the PPV. This week, WWE Champion will address a laid-down challenge on him while the Women’s Champion will kick-off her reign with a celebration. These and more will be in-store on this week’s show scheduled from the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

Last week’s WWE RAW witnessed Bobby Lashley issuing an Open Challenge, just a night after dominating Kofi Kingston at Money in the Bank. Keith Lee answered that challenge and came out to a home state pop. But he was simply squashed by the dominating champion in front of the live fans in the audience.

After the match, Lashley was standing tall with a celebration until the music hit and Goldberg made his WWE Raw return. The legendary superstar marched to the ring and got in Lashley’s face. He simply laughed and declared that he is next for the title. The champion wanted to fight, but MVP held him back.

Bobby Lashley dismissed the challenge earlier this week on Twitter, but it has announced that he will appear on WWE RAW to give his official response to Goldberg. At present, Goldberg isn’t booked to make his appearance, this week but he is scheduled to face Lashley at SummerSlam.

WWE Raw Preview (26/07/21): Nikki Cross A.S.H to celebrate title win

WWE has also announced that Monday’s show will feature new WWE RAW Women’s Champion Nikki Cross A.S.H. celebrating her title win. Last week, Charlotte Flair retained her title against Rhea Ripley via DQ as the duo got involved in a brawl. Flair was dropped by a Riptide from Ripley after which Cross ran out with the Money In The Bank briefcase.

She successfully cashed in the title match contract to win the gold from Charlotte Flair. While WWE is promoting that Nikki will throw a title win celebration, they have also been teasing that we will find out what’s next for the WWE RAW Women’s Title storyline, this week. It’s very likely that the new champion will go through her first title defense at SummerSlam.

In an interesting announcement, two of the current rivals will be forced to team up on WWE Raw, this week. Per the information from Sonya Deville, Ali and Mansoor will team up in tag team action, this week against unknown opponents. A few weeks ago, Ali was the one who cunningly picked up a win over Mansoor to escalate the feud. Now, they will try to patch things up.

WWE RAW Tag Team Championships will be on the line when AJ Styles and Omos defend those belts against The Viking Raiders – Erik and Ivar. This feud between the two teams has been going on for quite some time. The titles were actually on the line at Money in the Bank 2021 where the champions successfully retained as Omos pinned Erik with a one-armed Chokeslam move. Can he do it again? We’ll find out on the second episode back with fans.

Is Charlotte Flair The Most Overpushed Wrestler In WWE History?

Whenever we hear the term “overpushed” in WWE, automatically the pictures of Hulk Hogan, Triple H, John Cena and Roman Reigns come into the mind of any WWE fan. Indeed these are the most overpushed wrestlers not only in WWE but in professional wrestling history.

But is there someone else who is getting her name onto this list? Of course, it is Charlotte Flair. She is the most overrated wrestler in the history of women’s professional wrestling without any doubt. She made her main roster debut in 2015, and in only 6 year time he won a total of 13 women’s championships excluding her WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship run.

Is Charlotte Flair The Most Overpushed Wrestler In WWE History?

This is plain and simply overpushing. There was a time when she won matches which she should not have to win. Such as the Royal Rumble match last year. There was no point of her winning the match.

In spite after winning the match WWE had no idea what to do with her, so they had to let her fight for the NXT Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania.

Charlotte Flair

And this is only one example of her winning a match that she did not need to win. Even last night at Money in the Bank, her title win over Rhea Ripley was completely unnecessary.

She totally killed the momentum of Rhea. This time she should have put over Rhea. But once again she did not. And the fun part is in this long-running feud Rhea could not be Charlotte even once.

And the very next week on Monday Night RAW Nikki A.S.H cashed in her Money in the Bank ladder match and won the WWE RAW Women’s Championship. So Charlotte’s 11th run as the Champion lasted for only one day. So what was the point of giving the title to her? And what exactly was the point to kill Rhea Ripley’s reign?

As if there is a clause in her contract that she has to win every single match of her. Wrestlers like John Cena and Hulk Hogan were overpushed as well but nothing could be compared to the push that Charlotte Flair is receiving.

We cannot even hope for this to ever stop. Because WWE never cared much about what the fans wanted to see. In this case we are pretty much sure that the push for Charlotte will never stop and she will soon be known as the most overrated wrestler in the history of professional wrestling.

Becky Lynch To Make Her Return On Smackdown?

The former four times WWE Women’s Champion Becky Lynch is out of action for over a year. She did not make a single appearance since she took her maternity leave last year.

She is now fit to make her return anytime. She was ready for a return for over a couple of months. But WWE waited and stalled her return since there were no fans and WWE was organizing their shows in the Thunderdome. They are definitely expecting a huge reaction on Becky’s return, this is the reason why she did not return yet.

Becky Lynch To Make Her Return On Smackdown?

Becky Lynch will surely make a return very soon as it has been reported that she has signed a 1 million dollar contract with WWE a couple of months ago. It is quite clear that WWE has really high hopes for “The Man.”

She was rumoured to make her return by this week on Monday Night RAW. The way WWE decorated the show, it seemed like that he would make her return by the end of the night against Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley. But it did not happen as we got Nikki A.S.H cashing in her Money in the Bank contract and winning the WWE Raw Women’s Championship.

Is Becky makes her return on RAW right now, this would not make much sense as the title picture already has three women battling for it? So could there be a chance that Becky makes a return on Friday Night Smackdown?

Right now SmackDown has a very fragile women’s division.  With Bayley out injured, Sasha Banks is the only woman available who could challenge Bianca Belair for The Smackdown women’s Championship. So there is a possibility that Becky Lynch makes her return on SmackDown.

Becky vs. Bianca Belair would have been an excellent addition on the match card of WWE SummerSlam. The two women that never fought each Other before headlining Summerslam could be nothing less than a dream match. And this would be way bigger than Bianca Belair vs. Sasha Banks II.

Statistics: Charlotte Flair Creates WWE Record Over Money In The Bank Cash-In

Charlotte Flair can brag about the fact that she is a 14-time overall Women’s Champion, a record that no one in the WWE possesses. But those championship reigns did have a flip side of the coin as she ended up being target for her opponents. As a result of which, she ended up being the superstar upon whom the most Money in the Bank cash ins have happened in WWE history.

As seen on this week’s main event of RAW in Dallas, Texas, a rematch between Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley for the RAW Women’s Championship took place. The match ended via DQ as Flair attacked Ripley with the Title belt to escape the contest. The two got involved in a brawl after the match which ended with Ripley planting her opponent with a Riptide on the floor.

This led to Nikki Cross A.S.H. running out to cash-in her Women’s Money In The Bank 2021 contract, right away. The match began as Nikki jumped with a Crossbody off the top rope and pinned Charlotte Flair to become the new RAW Women’s Champion.

3 MITB cash-ins happened on Charlotte Flair

That being said, out of the 5 Women’s Money In The Bank winners so far, 3 of them (60% of cash-ins) have successfully cashed-in on The Queen to become new champions. This means Charlotte Flair has had more cash-ins on her than any other wrestler in WWE history. Below are the 3 women who have cashed-in on the veteran 12-time Women’s Champion from the main roster.

– Carmella (2017 MITB ladder match winner) in 2018 to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship

– Bayley in 2019 to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship

– Nikki Cross A.S.H. in 2021 to win the RAW Women’s Championship

(In 2018, Alexa Bliss cashed in Nia Jax, the night of Money in the Bank to become the new champion while in 2020, the winner Asuka didn’t have to cash-in as the champion Becky Lynch handed her the title due to pregnancy reasons)

Charlotte Flair won her record fifth Raw Women’s Championship at Money in the Bank 2021 PPV, itself by submitting Rhea Ripley in a rematch from 2021 Hell in a Cell event. Her title reign ended at the hands of Nikki Cross A.S.H after lasting a little more than just 24 hours. There’s no update on what WWE has planned for her for the next PPV, Summerslam 2021.

Becky Lynch Claims To Be Most Over WWE Star While Breastfeeding At Home

The altercation between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch continued on Raw after which the latter took to Twitter to respond to the ongoing. She responded to a jab by the former RAW Women’s Champion and claimed herself to be the most over superstar of the WWE roster despite being at home for more than a year.

This week’s Raw RAW featured an in-ring Championship Coronation segment where Charlotte Flair celebrated her Money in the Bank title win over Rhea Ripley. The segment ended with Flair getting booked in a rematch against Ripley where she had to defend against Ripley. There was a point during this segment, where the fans inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas chanted for Becky Lynch.

Flair responded to those ‘we want Becky’ chants by saying that the former Four-Horsewoman member is at home breast-feeding while she is here in WWE dominating the entire women’s division. Becky Lynch responded on Twitter and saying she’s still the most over in that female division.

“Breastfeeding at home and still the most over woman in the division,” The Man wrote.

Back at Money in the Bank 2021, fans chanted for Becky Lynch several times during the Flair vs. Ripley title match showdown. Flair responded to one of those “we want Becky!” chants by showing the crowd a middle finger. WWE production tried to black out the screen to block that middle finger point-out to the crowd, but the live Peacock/WWE Network feed was still able to pick up that feed, generating some negative reactions from the fans.

Before MITB 2021, Becky Lynch had confirmed that she was at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas for the pay-per-view. This came after reports indicated that she was scheduled to be backstage for the show, which led to speculation that she could be returning on TV.

Becky Lynch then took to Instagram and teased the fans ahead of the first WWE pay-per-view on the road of this summer by quoting, “Beautiful day in Fort Worth Texas. I really hope no one gets taken out of this ladder match. #mitb.” But ultimately, the return is yet to happen. She is out of action since WrestleMania 36, where she retained the RAW Women’s Title over Shayna Baszler.

Nikki Cross A.S.H. Cashes In 2021 MITB Contract To Become WWE Raw Women’s Champion

Nikki Cross A.S.H. has become the new WWE RAW Women’s Champion. During the post Money In The Bank 2021 edition of the show, she successfully cashed in her MITB briefcase on the former champion Charlotte Flair to become the new title-holder, a move that the WWE Universe seemed to be happy with. They must have been tired to see Charlotte getting title reigns, over and over.

This week’s RAW was headlined by Charlotte Flair defending her RAW Women’s Title against Rhea Ripley, in a rematch from Money In The Bank 2021 pay-per-view. The match ended in a DQ as the champion hit the challenger with a belt shot to the face as she was trying to walk out of the match to retain. The referee had no choice but to announce a disqualification.

After the bell, Ripley attacked Flair as the duo brawled at ringside.

Nikki Cross rolled a downed Flair into the ring, cashed in her briefcase to the referee, and then climbed to the top turnbuckle to deliver her crossbody to Flair.

This marks Nikki Cross’ first singles title reign in WWE while she previously enjoyed Women’s Tag Team Titles’ reign with Alexa Bliss. Charlotte Flair has just won the title from Ripley at Money In The Bank on Sunday, which was her fifth reign with the Women’s Title from the red brand. But it came to an end within just 24 hours of time.

RAW featured another title change other than Nikki Cross as Reginald became the new 24/7 Champion. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler lost to WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Tamina Snuka and Natalya, in a non-title attempt. Afterward, Jax attacked Reggie and left him in the ring when several Superstars chased Akira Tozawa to the ring. Akira was then attacked from behind by Reginald who eventually pinned Akira to win the title for the very first time.

The era of the All-Mighty continues on the show while Charlotte Flair begins her reign on the red brand for a sixth occasion. Also, John Cena will be back on board on the show he used to run after a long time as Raw airs from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

John Cena made the much-anticipated WWE return at this year’s Money in the Bank. He confronted Roman Reigns after the latter’s successful title defense over Hall of Famer Edge at the bygone PPV event. Cena delivered his “you can’t see me” taunt in Reigns’ face while Money in the Bank went off the air with Cena facing the crowd from the turnbuckles as The Tribal Chief watched from behind.

Going by the happening. It’s almost certain that John Cena will now challenge Reigns for the title at SummerSlam on August 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada. But before he heads toward Smackdown, WWE Raw will bring him back home, tonight. As per the announcement by the Cenation Leader himself, he will kick off the first Raw with the fans since the pandemic which is surely going to be an attraction for the audience.

WWE Raw Preview (19/07/21): Big return imminent?

WWE Champion Bobby Lashley man-handled Kofi Kingston with the Hurt Lock to retain his title at Money in the Bank with authority. As the All-Mighty Era continues, the question remains who could be the next name to challenge him for the title at Summerslam 2021. Per the recent reports from reliable sources, Goldberg is returning to face him in a title match on August 21st. That exciting return could go down tonight on WWE Raw from Dallas.

In the Women’s Title picture, Charlotte Flair defeated Rhea Ripley to become the new champion from WWE Raw at Money in the Bank 2021 pay-per-view. The match ended after Flair trapped Ripley’s leg between the ring post and the steel steps to injure them. She then applied the Figure Four and the Figure Eight submission, forcing Ripley to tap out for the finish.

That being said, Charlotte Flair has begun her 5th reign with the WWE Raw Women’s Title while Ripley won the strap back on April 11 during Night Two of WrestleMania 37, by defeating Asuka. The question remains whether WWE will continue this feud through Summerslam of this year or bring back someone like Becky Lynch to give some freshness to the storyline.

Speaking of this, we should mention that Nikki Cross ASH has become the 2021 Women’s Money in the Bank ladder-match winner. Cross ran in with all the remaining superstars brawling on top of ladders and climbed up a ladder to unhook the briefcase to get the win. With a championship contract by her side, Cross is almost guaranteed to become a new champion, down the road. That being said, we expect to hear from her when this week’s WWE Raw airs from Dallas.

The match ended after Charlotte Flair trapped Ripley’s leg between the ring post and the steel steps. Flair then kicked the steps into Ripley’s leg a few times to hurt those legs which were already bruised with a sudden attack from this week’s Raw. Flair then brought Ripley back into the ring to apply the Figure Four and then a bridge to transform into a Figure Eight. Ripley had to tap out for the finish.

At WrestleMania Backlash, Flair and Ripley had a title match encounter which ended in the latter’s favor as she opted to get herself disqualified. This, in turn, set up the rematch at Money in the Bank 2021. Thus Flair begins her 5th reign with the red brand title, leveling herself with Sasha Banks, the other 5-time Raw Women’s Champion. Ripley won the strap back on April 11 during Night Two of WrestleMania 37, by defeating Asuka. She held the title for 98 days before dropping it to Flair.
