Charlotte Flair: I Want To Be On The Card With Men, I Don't Need An All-Female Show To Be Highlighted

Charlotte Flair wants to steal the show with everyone on the card.

In conjunction with the NWA, Mickie James is set to produce an all-women's show in August entitled EMPOWERRR. WWE famously held its first-ever all-women's show, WWE Evolution in October 2018, but the event has not returned to the WWE schedule despite being a critical success.

Before NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Triple H commented on the possibility of another all-women's show by saying, "Equality is equality. Equality is not 'I want my own show.' Equality is not 'we have to have our own program.' If I told you that I was making an all men's program and didn't want women on it, it would be criticized...Will we do another all-women's event down the line? Possibly, but it's not a must-have at the moment. I think we do an amazing job of displaying our female athletes. Is it perfect? No. Will it always be in flux? Yes, but we do a pretty good job. In my opinion, the best female performers in the world are in WWE and if they are not, they want to be"

Charlotte Flair seems to agree with part of Triple H's stance as she wants to be the highlight of the show with everyone on the card, not just women.

"I think [another Evolution is] more of a when [than an if], but I get asked this question a lot," she said in an interview with Graham Matthews of Bleacher Report. "Would an all-women's show be great? Yes. Would another all-women's pay-per-view be great? Yes. But I'm in the mindset that I want to be on the card with men. I want to be on the card where there's eight matches and I want to be the best of the night no matter the gender. I don't need an all-women's show or an all-women's pay-per-view to highlight my performance or skill or being a lady wrestler. No. I want to prove, no matter man or woman, I am the best. I think it's great, but I don't need an all-women's show to show I'm a great wrestler. Any promotion, any female star, anyone should say they are the best. You should not be in this business unless you're saying you're the best. Wherever you are in the world you should say you're the best.”

Charlotte will compete on the same card as the men this Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell when she challenges Rhea Ripley for the Raw Women's Championship.
