Charlotte Flair returned to WWE after missing WrestleMania 37 and wanted to show improvement on the microphone.
Charlotte has always been praised for her ability in the ring, but rarely credited for her promo ability.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Charlotte discussed her desire to get better on the mic.
"When I came back from COVID and missing WrestleMania, I said the one thing I need to get better at is promos. I didn't think they were terrible or great, I thought they were whatever. I wanted to show improvement. Always trying to show improvement is what matters. It keeps people engaged," she said.
When asked about how she was able to improve, she said, "I worked on it. I've had acting classes before, but for me, with promos, I always got in my head where I was like, 'I have to say everything word for word,' if the sentence didn't come out right...it's okay to take a pause and talk like a human and not be robotic and feel it. Know what the story is and say it. I had to tell myself, 'If I mess up, it's okay, you're human, people mess up.' Once I started accepting that, that's when the promo started to come. I'm more confident this year than I was last year. It's just feeling it. I was always so scared of like, 'Can I say that? Can I not?' No, it doesn't matter. Say it. Go with it. Typing it out for me works really well. I memorize in sections and I take bits and pieces and believe in what I'm saying."
Charlotte noted that her "Opportunity" promo that she cut following WrestleMania 37 is her favorite promo that she's done.
Elsewhere during the interview, Charlotte discussed wanting to help the other women backstage. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
