Charlotte Thinks Ronda Rousey Could Handle The Transition To WWE

We mentioned this week that former Smackdown Women's Champion Becky Lynch doesn't have an interest in crossing over to MMA. That being said, her best friend in Charlotte is still clamoring for her own match with a former UFC Champion inside a WWE ring.

Charlotte spoke to Rolling Stone about the ongoing hype between a potential match with Ronda Rousey. The two got face-to-face at the Mae Young Classic

"Here's the thing: With Ronda being part of the division, or her having whatever interest, whether it to be part of the division or as just a fan, it brings more eyes to the women's division, which I'm all for. Especially with a crossover star like she is. But I mean, would I want to have another fatal four-way with the four horsewomen? That would be at the top of my list. It's not that she's my dream opponent, it's just I want to main event Wrestlemania – and with the proper storyline. I can think me vs. Ronda Rousey has a Wrestlemania feel to it," said Charlotte.

Rousey is facing a transition period if she does end up making the move. However, Charlotte thinks it's one the former UFC Champ can excel at if she puts in the work.

"Absolutely, but perfecting her craft is another story. Whether she can handle being in the ring? 100-percent. She's a UFC fighter. But it's one thing to step in the ring and have one match than to call yourself a WWE superstar. It took me five years to understand the psychology. You just don't have one match and say, "Hey, I can do this." Yeah, she can get in the ring and do it, but to really understand what we do and what makes the greats the great, that takes years. It's not just one match," said Charlotte.

Charlotte came up short in her efforts to become Smackdown Women's Champion at Hell in a Cell. You can see the full interview at this link.
