Former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair spoke with SportBible to discuss various topics. Here are the highlights.
Her Last Woman Standing Match with Becky Lynch:
“It was a culmination of learning, us being best friends and it being the all-women’s pay-per-view. It’s a chance for all the women to show what they have and say, ‘No, I’m the best!’ – it just raises the bar. That’s why I like having two brands; Smackdown wants to be better than RAW, RAW wants to be better than Smackdown – it creates competition and you have to have competition. I think [the] Last Woman Standing [match] has been my best performance so far.”
Seeing room for improvement in the match:
“Well, I watched it back and I was like, ‘I should’ve done this differently!’ – I never want to walk away and be like, ‘This was the best ever‘ because you can always do something better, but I just know Becky and I went into Evolution wanting to steal the show and wanting to have a match that would stand the test of time and I think we did that because of how much emotion was put into it. Everyone can relate to a best friend story whether you’re on Becky’s side or whether you’re on my side, you understand it and I think people genuinely saw how close we are or were throughout the years.”
