Charlotte speaks out on the TLC 2019 incident with Kairi Sane getting a concussion.
The main event of TLC 2019 was a tag team TLC match featuring be Kabuki Warriors defending the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair. The match was thrown a monkey wrench when Kairi Sane was concussed in the middle of the action.
Speaking with talkSPORT, Charlotte Flair commented on the issue and expressed that it would throw everybody off their game.
“It didn’t [affect the match] in the moment,” Charlotte began. “I guess, everyone, how they felt afterward is what made them feel different. In the moment, it was more it’s a tough spot. It’s the main event of a brutal pay-per-view and everyone has already seen Tables, Ladders and Chairs."
She would also go on to say that competing in that match was difficult because they needed to be the final match on the card and they had to give fans something that they hadn't seen when the car was already filled with plenty of gimmick matches.
"It’s feeding off the crowd, going with the crowd and feeding off their reactions. So I didn’t really think anything until after," she continued. "Obviously Kairi was hurt, but in the match, I’m just thinking ‘how do we keep people invested?’ with them already seeing so many different TLC, brutal matches. You’ve already seen a kendo stick, you’ve already seen a chair, you’ve seen a ladder, a table."
Kairi Sane has since returned to Raw alongside Asuka who will challenge Becky Lynch at Royal Rumble for the WWE RAW Women's Championship.
