Charlotte Flair on if she has sensed any resentment from male wrestlers

In WWE, Charlotte Flair won the Divas Championship, of which she was the last holder in history, five times the SmackDown Women's Championship, four times the Raw Women's Championship, of which she was the inaugural champion, and the 2020 women's Royal Rumble; moreover, when she was in the NXT development territory, she once conquered the NXT Women's Championship.

In 2016, PWI readers voted Flair both Woman of the Year and that year's world's top female professional wrestler. Flair became the first woman to headline a WWE pay-per-view event in October 2016 (alongside Sasha Banks) and one of three women to headline WrestleMania, WWE's flagship annual event, in April 2019.

Speaking on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Charlotte discussed if she has sensed any resentment from male wrestlers: “No, I didn’t sense resentment. If anything, I think we raised the bar for the men as well, like having competition.

I was never raised to think that I couldn’t do what men could do. So when I started at WWE, I just wanted to prove how athletic I was. It was more the chip on my shoulder being Ric Flair’s daughter, it was, ‘OK, I have to work harder, male or female.’ And then, I think the boys were like, ‘Wow, the girls are really doing it.’ And the guys that have little girls were like, ‘OK, we want to bring our little girls to the show and see what you can do.’ So I didn’t sense resentment”.
