Speaking on Cut To It, Charlotte reflected on missing WrestleMania and how others saw that as an opportunity.

"Your fellow co-workers feel bad, but at the same time, it's a spot that's open. It's an opportunity. I missed WrestleMania this year due to COVID, I got it in March, and they were nervous that I wouldn't be okay for WrestleMania in Tampa, so they immediately took me out and replaced me with another girl. It crushed me. I work every year for WrestleMania. It is our Super Bowl and the show I've always shined the most on. When they replaced me, you know (another girl) is thinking, 'I'm sorry and sad Charlotte has COVID...but now I'm going to WrestleMania.' It all comes full circle. If something doesn't happen, it's a break for the opponent that gets to come in. It all works out," she said.

Charlotte remains in the Raw Women's Title picture as she is set to challenge Nikki ASH in a triple threat match that also features Rhea Ripley at SummerSlam.
