WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair recently to spoke Arroe Collins‘ podcast. The Queen of WWE discussed a number of topics during the interview, including how herself and others have helped to ‘normalize’ Women’s wrestling being in the main event of WWE pay-per-view events.
“No one says, ‘that was a great women’s match.’ No, it was just a great match,”Â Charlotte began the interview.Â “We are equals all around.”
“The women right now have put so much time and effort into the style, the character, taking pieces from the past, growing with the future, and laying it all out there and having the mindset that just because it’s female, it’s any less” Flair continued.
Charlotte Flair on Women’s main events
“We’re storytellers and that’s what we do, that’s why everyone is talking about it. There is no difference, man or woman” Charlotte Flair said emphatically.
“Anyone can be the main event and if we are the main event, no one is going ‘oh my gosh, women are the main event.’ We’ve normalized it” the former Women’s Champion concluded.
Prior to the Four Horsewomen of WWE (Flair, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Bayley) being legitimate main even stars, the last women to appear in WWE main event slots were Lita and Trish Stratus in the mid 2000s.
The premise is very different now with Flair herself having been in the only WrestleMania main event for women in company history against Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey.
Charlotte Flair is set to take on Rhea Ripley for the RAW Women’s Championship at the Money In The Bank PPV in July.
