Charlotte Flair Addresses Criticism Of WWE's Women's Division Not Getting Enough TV Time

The Queen has spoken.

Appearing on The Masked Man Show, Charlotte Flair addressed the criticism levied against WWE by fans for the lack of time given to their Women's Division on television. Flair admits that it's a hard question to answer, but from her perspective, the opportunities are there, and points to her own experiences main eventing shows with three-segment matches. Here are her full remarks:

Eric Bischoff Believes WWE Should ‘De-Sanitize’ Their Product: 'It Doesn't Even Feel Live Anymore'

"It's a hard answer. When I was on Raw, I was the first main event back from COVID. If you count how many times I've main evented, whether it was with Nikki ASH or Rhea or Bianca or any other segment, I was in three segment matches. I had a lot of time. I feel like...the storylines I've been in on Raw, I can't say (I haven't had time). They give us time. If you look on Raw, every female; Eva Marie, Doudrop, Shayna, Nia, Alexa, myself, Nikki, Rhea, everyone was on TV so I don't think it's fair for people to say. It's there. Is it hard to stay there? Absolutely, but it's there. Look it up. The stats are there, the time is there. The opportunities are there. It's easier to be negative than positive. If they don't like a certain storyline or if the wrong girl is in the wrong match, that's what it's really about, but this is entertainment. It's there."

The issue in question was magnified recently when none of the first six matches of the Queen's Crown Tournament lasted longer than 3 minutes.

Charlotte is currently the SmackDown Women's Champion and is set to face Becky Lynch, the Raw Women's Champion, at Survivor Series this Sunday, November 21. Back on the blue brand, however, she has Toni Storm to contend with as the young Superstar pushes for a title opportunity.
