Charlotte Flair Remembers Feeling Left Out As She Watched The First Women's Royal Rumble

Women in WWE made history in 2018 when they held the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble.

The Women's Royal Rumble headlined the show and featured female superstars from the present and past as a showcase of the divisions past, present, and future.

Unfortunately for Charlotte Flair, she had to sit ringside for the event as the reigning SmackDown Women's Champion.

Discussing the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble in a roundtable discussion on WWE Network, Charlotte reflected on how she felt not being in the ring that night.

"I probably had a boo-boo face on. Like, 'Wait, I'm on camera, don't have a boo-boo face.' It's exciting and the action and movements. I didn't know what the future was going to hold, but you see these things going down and you hear the crowd reaction and you're like, 'Oh, I feel so left out of it.' At the same time, I had to realize that I was holding what the women want, so ultimately that's the main goal. For me, it wasn't even about the title. Main eventing the Rumble is so much bigger than...the Rumble is for who you're going to face at Mania, it's for all these women from the past and present," she said.

Charlotte may not have been part of the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble, but she is one of just three women ever to win the Women's Royal Rumble as she outlasted 29 other superstars in 2020 to win the Rumble.

Charlotte is set to compete in Sunday's WWE Women's Royal Rumble and defend her WWE Women's Tag Team Title alongside Asuka. You can view the current lineup for Sunday's Royal Rumble event by clicking here.
