"I keep replaying 2019 in my head over and over. It's one of those things, I'm glad it happened. Sometimes you've got to fall and, standing there, after feeling like I've lost my confidence and being like, 'No. I'm Charlotte Flair. This is my division.' There's only one queen and I reminded everyone of who I am."

Later in the interview, when asked about seeing her father Ric Flair at the event, she commented, "I try not to cry when I see my dad cry. When I went out there, I thought if I won the Rumble, my dad and I would be the first father-daughter duo to win a Royal Rumble. Just another addition to our legacy."

Charlotte also revealed that she'll celebrate on Sunday by figuring out who she's going to pick to face at WrestleMania. She said she'll make her decision on WWE Raw. Charlotte has the choice between Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch or SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley.

"Since Bayley can only beat me when I'm unconscious, everyone remembers Money in the Bank. If I was Becky, I'd be scared," she said.

WWE has not confirmed Charlotte will make her decision on Monday's Raw.

Later in the night, Charly caught up with Drew McIntyre following his Royal Rumble win and he too reflected on the moment.

"I can't find the words. There's literally no words. The past 18 years, the past 12 years in America. Every up, every down, every single second was worth it for that moment. I threw Roman out and I heard 40,000 people react the way they reacted. I'm going to WrestleMania. The person that came to mind was my wife. You don't really think about it when you're on the road but we're away from our family all the time and they endure as much as we endure when we're on the road and we give so much of ourselves to the fans and we give it willingly, this is our dream. They're the ones holding the fort at home. This one is for her. I'm going to WrestleMania," he said.
