Charlotte is excelling on the WWE's big stage, but she has even bigger hopes.
The daughter of Ric Flair, Charlotte hopes to follow in her father's footsteps and headline shows. The former WWE Raw Women's Champion did so last Monday on Raw, but in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, she said she isn't stopping there.
“I want to headline a pay per view, and I want it to be the fatal four-way with the Four Horsewomen. The last time I cried was watching the Women’s Revolution on WWE Network a couple of weeks ago when they asked Bayley if she felt left out of WrestleMania , and she said, ‘No, I felt a part of it, because even though it was the three of them [Banks, Lynch, and Charlotte] there, it took the four of us to get to where we are," said Charlotte.
While she didn't main event WrestleMania this year, Charlotte did help steal the show on the event. The 30-year old knew that even for her entrance, she had to pull out all the stops.
“At WrestleMania, I knew I needed to do something special,” said Charlotte. “I asked myself, ‘Should I wear a robe? Can I take myself seriously as an athlete in a robe?’ So Terry [Anderson], who designs my robes and did my dad’s WrestleMania robe against Shawn, made my blue robe, which had pieces from my dad’s robe in it. My dad’s robe is in the Smithsonian in the pop culture section, and that robe was such a hit, so she said, ‘Let’s do another one.’ My dad’s were kind of bulky, but mine are a little more feminine. I wore my dad’s robes all the time as a kid. When I was in the second grade, it was ‘bring your shoe in to decorate’ – I don’t know why that was even an arts and crafts project – but I brought in my dad’s wrestling boot and I decorated that.”
Charlotte is rumored to face Sasha Banks at Hell in a Cell later this month.
