Charlotte Flair discusses her Last Woman Standing bout with Becky Lynch.
This past Sunday at WWE Evolution, Charlotte and Becky stole the show in their Last Woman Standing bout. The good friends, better enemies, battered each other with tables, ladders, chairs, and kendo sticks in an effort to keep the other down for a 10 count. In the end, Becky was victorious following a powerbomb from the top rope through a table and to the floor on the outside. Becky was the last woman standing and remained the SmackDown Women's Champion, but both ladies earned a standing ovation for their efforts.
Appearing on Pro Wrestling Wednesday, Charlotte discussed the bout many consider to be the 2018 WWE Match of the Year.
"We did exactly what we wanted to. We want to go in there, we wanted to steal the show, and we wanted to have a match that people talked about for years to come. We just didn't know how the Last Woman Standing stipulation would turn out because it's not a stipulation were were familiar with," said Charlotte. "We know we have great chemistry, but that's a whole different type of match. We just stuck to what we know works and we told that story. It's really cool that we got to use objects like the table and kendo stick and announce table and ladders, but it was more the emotion that I hope people really remember about the story. Whether you were pulling for me or Becky, it was a very relatable story. Everyone understands betrayal, best friends, and picking sides."
The Last Woman Standing stipulation allowed the two women to bust out weapons that would not have been legal under normal circumstances. Charlotte stated that using weapons felt appropriate for this feud, but is not something she wants to do often.
"It almost cheapens what we do. It's easy to use a chair on somebody. It's harder to tell an emotional story without things like that," she explained. "I just know where the rivalry was going, that made the most sense because it had been so physical. But I wouldn't want a match like that all the time. Just special occasions."
When asked what's next for her following WWE Evolution, Charlotte said, "For the first time, the audience is going to see self doubt from the Queen. It's a perfect opportunity to rebuild."
This past Tuesday on SmackDown, Charlotte was asked to captain Team SmackDown against Team Raw at Survivor Series. Showing some of that doubt, she declined the offer from General Manager Paige. You can view the segment in the video above.
