Former two times NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair reveals that she did not think she was ready for the Main Event scene before her triple threat match against Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks at WrestleMania 32.
From the very beginning of her career she had been pretty impressive. She spent her first three years of WWE in the NXT. In 2015 she came to the main roster of WWE as a part of the women’s revolution started by Stephanie McMahon on the same year. Since then she ran faster than almost everyone in the women’s division of WWE.
Charlotte Flair Reveals That She Did Not Think She Was Ready For Main Event Scene
She is the only women in WWE who won a NXT title while being a part of the main roster. Right now she is having an interesting feud with Rhea Ripley for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship and if she wins the title this time it will be her 10th WWE Women’s Title combining both RAW and Smackdown Women’s Championship.
In a recent segment on Monday Night RAW, Charlotte Flair said that she won 14 Women’s Championship. Even though, that is not true. If all of her reigns get combined of all the titles she won, there are a total number of 13 reigns including Women’s Tag Team Championship, Divas Championship and NXT Tag Team Championship.
Recently, Charlotte Flair spoke with Mark Andrews on his BBC Radio program where she said that she did not think she was ready for Main Event scene before WrestleMania 32. She said;
“If I have to break it down, WrestleMania 32 was a big deal for me because when I first won the Divas Championship from Nikki Bella, I felt like when I held that title up I wasn’t ready.
“I used to watch her walk down the aisle and be like, ‘Woah, she’s a star.’ Yes, wrestling-wise, I was prepared but I still was missing — I had so much more to grow and when I held up that Divas Championship, I just was — the title doesn’t make you, you make the title, but the title was making me, and then when I won at WrestleMania 32 and I held up the title, I was like, ‘You’re damn right I’m the Women’s Champion.’
“I felt ready so that’s what made that match. Obviously being with Becky [Lynch] and Sasha [Banks] but then when I wrestled Asuka, the moment was more everyone knew how good Asuka was, so it was a moment for me to show what I could do on the grandest stage. Not that people didn’t think I was gifted, but that was like a real opportunity to be like, ‘Okay, I’m ready for Asuka, literally.’”
