Charlotte Flair has played the role of heel in WWE since returning to the company in the episode of Raw on April 12, 2021. The 'Queen' was forced to skip WrestleMania 37 having tested positive for Coronavirus, but immediately rejoined the race titled after recovering.
The 13-time world champion attacked Asuka and Rhea Ripley reiterating her intention to monopolize the women's roster. It didn't take long for Charlotte to establish herself at the top of the company after her return.
Flair challenged Asuka and Rhea Ripley at Backlash for the Raw Women's Championship, but she failed to take home the win. The daughter of the legendary Ric took her revenge at Money in the Bank by defeating poor Ripley.
Despite losing the title the next night, Charlotte didn't give up and regained her belt in SummerSlam (becoming Raw champion for the sixth time). The former NXT champion moved to SmackDown following the 2021 Draft, before exchanging the titles with Becky Lynch.
The showdown between the two took place at the Survivor Series, with the Irish exit victorious to general amazement. Flair is the big favorite to win the 2022 edition of the women's Royal Rumble match, scheduled for January 29th.
In a recent interview with 'TV Source', the current SmackDown champion analyzed her latest stint in detail.
Latest update on Charlotte Flair
"I have no intention of making any changes to my character" - began Charlotte Flair.
“At the same time, I don't want to apologize for everything I've accomplished. If someone else had been in my place, he would have acted the same way and would not have apologized. I realized that the end justifies the means.
I'll never understand why people think I should be content with what I got. I feel like I haven't peaked yet. I am really hungry and I want to increase my showcase in the coming months” - she added. Speaking on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, Flair dismissed the possibility of his daughter going one-on-one with the former IMPACT World Champion: “Never.
I don’t think she [Blanchard] is gonna go to WWE any time soon. Charlotte’s definitely not going to leave WWE. She [Charlotte] gets it, she was so good on Friday night. She was amazing. She gets better every day, literally, which is hard to believe”.
As Ric Flair referenced, Charlotte appeared in a segment with Lita on last week’s SmackDown to promote their participation in the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble. The segment ended with the WWE Hall of Famer hitting The Queen with a Twist of Fate.
