Charlotte Flair Gives Honest Analysis Of Current Championship Reign WWE

SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair is set to main event her second ever WrestleMania next weekend, when she takes on Ronda Rousey for the championship at WrestleMania 38 Saturday.

Charlotte’s SmackDown Women’s Championship reign began back in October during her and Becky Lynch’s now infamous ‘title exchange’ segment.

Flair has not defended the title on pay-per-view since her reign began, with her last defence being at Extreme Rules 2021 against Alexa Bliss for her Raw Women’s Championship.

Charlotte recently spoke to Bleacher Report ahead of WrestleMania 38, where she gave an honest analysis of her current title reign, noting how she wishes she would have defended it more on pay-per-view.

She said:

“For me, I think I would’ve liked to have more title defenses on pay-per-views, but under certain circumstances… It was cool being champion going into the Royal Rumble because that’s never happened before [with the women].

“Having that match with Naomi, I’ve been waiting for that match for five years now and we were finally able to have it on SmackDown last month. I thought that was incredible. It’s so cliche, but that was only a taste of what we can do. It was only one match. That was special for me. With Survivor Series [vs. Lynch], all I can say is that number one doesn’t talk about number two, but it was fun to revisit that bitter best friend [storyline].”

Charlotte spoke highly of her match against Rhea Ripley for the Raw Women’s Championship back at Money In The Bank, claiming it was one of her ‘top favorite matches’.

She said:

“It’s one of my top favorite matches. I took an uninterested crowd and by the end, I had them chanting ‘This is awesome.’ Rhea is the future of the women’s division, I tell her all the time. I have so much respect for her, and I know our paths will cross again.”

Charlotte continued on, saying that she thinks that all the work she has put in during this run will be forgotten about after WrestleMania. She explained:

“I think whatever I’ve done throughout this entire run will be forgotten about after WrestleMania. I hate to say that because I loved working with Naomi and it was a pleasure being able to face Toni. I wish her the best. She has so much talent and is a star. I think, for me, everything will be forgotten once WrestleMania happens.”
