Charlotte Flair believes that this will be the year that we will see a woman’s match as the headliner in WrestleMania.
“It looks like [women will main event WrestleMania]. I think that would be the pinnacle of the women’s evolution,” Flair said.”And I’ve said this before, you can’t just main even that show and be like, ‘That’s it.’ You have to continue that momentum. So say it is we main event WrestleMania 35, that momentum has to continue. You can’t be like, ‘Okay!We’ve done it all.’ No, you have to continue to work for that spot. You have to continue to work.”
Flair made her statements during an interview at 105.3 The Fan. Aside from sharing her thoughts about women in WrestleMania, she also took the time to talk about the state of the women’s evolution in the WWE.
According to Flair, the success of the women’s evolution comes from all the hard work that women wrestlers of the past and present have put in. She also believes that success of women in the WWE is due to the fact that they have more to prove.
“I don’t want to take away from what the men are doing,it’s just, right now the women, I think it boils down to [women] have a lot more to prove,” Flair explained. “Even though, I mean we’ve proven ourselves, but it’s always like, every time you’re on TV you want the audience to be at the edge of their seat buying what they’re seeing, soaking in to the storyline. And you’ve got, for instance on SmackDown, you’ve got two women that want that spot. And you can feel that, and that competition creates, I think, a better product. So I don’t want to take away from what the guys are doing, it’s just, right now, it just seems like everyone’s really invested in the women.”
“I think it’s something that has to be once every year, a novelty. Or else it takes away from the special uniqueness of it. I don’t want to see that every week. I’m sorry, I don’t,” said Flair.
