At Sunday’s Money in the Bank, Charlotte Flair will make history once again as one of the participants of the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match alongside Becky Lynch and fellow second generation Superstars Natalya, Tamina and Carmella.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Charlotte discusses the upcoming PPV match, how it feels to carry her family’s legacy and who she would’ve liked to see included in the Money in the Bank Ladder match. Highlights of the interview below.
On the anticipation of Money in the Bank: “It definitely keeps me on my toes. [Laughs] It’s exciting. SmackDown Live! and the women having this opportunity is huge, and it’s another step for the women’s revolution.”
On continuing her family’s legacy: “Well, I definitely think Natalya is one of the greatest of all time. I’ve only been around a few years, so it’s so hard. When people say that, [I say,] ‘I haven’t been wrestling long enough. Give me a few years.’ But it’s an amazing time for women’s wrestling, and it just happens to be right place, right time.”
Who she would’ve liked to participate in the match: “Our champ, Naomi. Yes, she’s our women’s champion, but I’m sure there’s a part of her wishing she was in the first-ever Ms. Money in the Bank match. I hope everyone gets this opportunity. That’s why I hope we do well on Sunday, so we continue to have these opportunities.
On being more comfortable in a babyface role: “The difference between debuting and where I’m at now is now I know who Charlotte is. But it’s a whole new world for me right now. I’m on a different brand; I’m with a different group of girls. Being undefined somewhat makes me nervous, but what I do know is I’m 100 percent confident in who Charlotte is. But how is that gonna work is the part I over think.”
Charlotte also discusses the evolution of her character, teaming up with her former PCB partner Becky Lynch and blurring gender lines.
