Charlotte Flair: I Think The Women Have Raised The Bar For The Men In WWE

The women's evolution in WWE has been a focal point of the last half-decade of content for the global entertainment phenomenon. Undoubtedly, one of the stars out in the forefront of this movement is Charlotte Flair, who says that she's never experienced anything but support from her male equivalents.

Speaking to Colin Cowherd recently, Charlotte Flair opened up about never really feeling like she couldn't do what the men could and being more concerned about the naysayers who would insist that she was only going to go far because of her last name. Furthermore, Charlotte would say that many of the men feel like what the women have done in WWE recently is empowering, especially the WWE Superstars that have young daughters.

“No, I didn't sense resentment. If anything, I think we raise the bar for the men as well,” Charlotte began. “But I was never raised to think that I couldn't do what men could do. So when I started at WWE, I just wanted to prove how athletic I was. It was more the chip on my shoulder being Ric Flair's daughter, just, 'okay. I have to work harder than everyone, male or female.' And then, I think the boys actually were like, 'wow, the girls are really doing it.' And the guys that have little girls were like, 'okay, we want to bring our little girls to the show and see what you can do,' so, I didn't sense resentment.”

Currently, Charlotte is weighing her options after winning the 2020 Royal Rumble match and fans are awaiting an answer as to which champion she will face at the show of shows, WrestleMania 36 in Tampa, Florida.
