There have been a lot of back and forth rumors as to what fans can expect to take place at the year’s WrestleMania for WWE’s Women’s division.
“I want to wrestle Asuka, I want to break her streak. We’ve never faced each other, never been in a multi-woman match. I feel her coming from Japan and having her own legacy, and coming from a completely different culture, and then my background, I think it’s definitely a WrestleMania moment. So that’s who I would like to face.”
When asked why she didn’t reply with Ronda Rousey, Flair explained that Rousey has to “pay her dues first” and offered the following advice to WWE’s newest Superstar:
“It doesn’t matter how athletic you are… It’s about being a performer and eliciting a reaction from the crowd. The best superstars are the ones who can have an emotional connection, whether positive or negative, with their audience. And that’s what makes the greats, great.”
In regards to Rousey’s WWE signing, Flair expressed why the WWE locker room should be excited about her joining the company:
“Ronda’s a star and an attraction and with her coming to be a part of the women’s division, obviously it brings more eyes on the women’s division, not just our audience. I mean, people that don’t even watch wrestling, they know who Ronda Rousey is. They’re like, ‘oh she’s on WWE, oh let’s tune in for a second.’ So I think that’s huge. But, you know, we’re on the road 265 days a year and you just can’t call yourself a WWE Superstar. So the easiest thing she’ll do is sign a contract. Whether she’s willing to put in that work, that’s where the respect and understanding our culture and what it means to be a star in our industry… we’ll see how the future plays out.”
Asuka has yet to announce which Women’s Championship she would like to compete for at WretleMania after winning the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble.
