Charlotte Flair believes she was “the glue” of the WrestleMania 35 main event.
At WWE WrestleMania 35, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey made history when they became the first women to headline the Show of Shows.
The three ladies battled in a winner takes all match for both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships on the line. In the buildup to the event, the original bout was set to be Lynch vs. Rousey, but Charlotte was inserted by Vince McMahon to initially replace Becky.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Flair reflected on her role in the historic bout. Agreeing with the sentiment that she was the glue in the match, she said:
“Yes, I do. You have this hot babyface, Becky Lynch, that the fans love. You’ve got this woman [Rousey] who paved the way and showed that women could main event pay-per-view in UFC.”
“I definitely feel like I made it all come together. Yes, the narrative is fun to say that I was shoe-horned or however the inside circle wants to talk about me, but I know what my purpose was. Looking back now, I’m okay with that.”
Discussing criticism that she receives from the fans, Charlotte said:
“Do you feel like people are constantly poking at me and I never give them anything? I’ve been so consistent in the public. I never put down other talent to prop myself up. There is constant Charlotte hate.”
“I don’t feel it, and I feel like sometimes, that’s what they’re looking for. I was a part of (WrestleMania) 35 happening.”
“No matter what they want me to say, no one will ever take that away from how I feel about myself, the performance, and the storyline.”
Becky Lynch walked out with both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships after defeating Flair and Rousey at WrestleMania 35.
Charlotte Flair is currently the SmackDown Women’s Champion after defeating Ronda Rousey on the December 30 episode of SmackDown.
“The Queen” will defend her title against Sonya Deville on the February 3 edition of SmackDown.
