Charlotte recently spoke with
Between the Ropes, here are the highlights…
On sharing the moment with her father Ric Flair when she won the NXT
Women’s Title at Takeover: I really don’t have the words. It was so special. I mean, to follow
in my dad’s footsteps. I think if anyone’s followed my father’s career, they
truly know how passionate he is about sports entertainment. And to be able to
carry on his legacy in my own way and to win the NXT Women’s Championship, it
just meant the world to me. I know how much his legacy, hard work, sacrifice and
his love for his fans and the WWE Universe that he put into them. And to know
that I’m representing his brand that he worked on for so long means a lot to me.
So I just want to do it justice and I felt that pressure that night. I think it
went really well. No matter how grand the stage is, he be proud of me. But to
win my first title with there, was special.
On her WWE debut at Madison Square Garden this past
weekend: Heck of a way to start your main
roster debut. It was amazing. While Sasha Banks and I started pretty much at the
same time and to have her tagging with me was special in itself. But Madison
Squarer Garden has so much history and tradition. And to walk out there and know
that I was making history within that building and having my dad there and being
on the same card as him, that’s what made it special. Like his name was on
there, I was on there. But facing Natalya again, that was pretty awesome too.
That was the first time I faced her since Takeover and obviously going up
against Nikki (Bella) too. Also, what was so cool, they (the crowd) knew who we
were. Walking out there playing our little package and knowing us made you feel
like even more like a superstar like NXT means business.
