​Charlotte Discusses Being A Role Model While Being A Heel, Wanting To Rename The Divas Title, WM32


During a recent interview with the USA Today High School Sports website, WWE Divas Champion Charlotte discussed wanting to rename the Divas title, WrestleMania 32, being a role model while being a heel and more. Here are some highlights:

On being at WrestleMania: “It’s giving my goosebumps just thinking about it. I really hope with all the hard work that all the women have done in the last few months that WrestleMania is a huge payoff for us. I’m hoping we’ll get the time and and be able to show the world on the grandest stage that we’re not divas, we’re superstars. This is an opportunity to treat women as women at WrestleMania and we’re going to steal the show. I don’t even know the right words here, but we’re going to be highlighted on something on that level with the largest crowd ever and people all over the world watching us. It’s amazing how far women have come.”

On bring a heel making it harder to be a role model: “It is. My first thought in going heel mode was I’m not going to be able to portray who I am and what I’m like in real life. I think Stephanie McMahon is who I’m trying mold myself after. She is the biggest villain on TV, but there is no one who is more empowering for women than Stephanie McMahon. I play that character and then portray who I am and what I stand for whenever I get the chance. I don’t look like a typical model. I’m strong, athletic and can kick butt like men can. That’s what I hope people take away from my character.”

On making the Divas Title the Women’s Title: “It’s an honor having the Divas championship and there is lots of history behind the Divas championship. I look at it as a new beginning for women’s wrestling so let’s have a new title. While I’m honored to have the Divas championship, this is 2016 — Let’s make it the women’s championship. But I will be privileged to represent women’s wrestling with a women’s championship or the Divas championship.”
