Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey, and Becky Lynch made history at WrestleMania 35 when they became the first women to headline WrestleMania.
The three women battled in a winner take all triple threat match with the WWE SmackDown and Raw Women's Championships on the line. On television, the original bout was set to be Lynch vs. Rousey, but Charlotte was inserted into the match by Vince McMahon, initially replacing Lynch.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Flair reflected on her place in the bout.
"Yes, I do," Flair said, agreeing with the sentiment that she was the glue in the match. "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."
She continued, "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."
Lynch was victorious in the main event of WrestleMania 35, winning both championships in the process.
Flair is the reigning WWE SmackDown Women's Champion, winning the title by defeating Rousey on the December 30 episode of WWE SmackDown.
