WWE Divas Champion Charlotte recently spoke with the News & Observer in Raleigh, North Carolina to promote WWE TLC. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

Blurring the line between fiction and reality:

"Having my dad in the business and using a lot of what's been real life most of Charlotte's character is really who she is. A lot of who Ashley is is Charlotte and the same with my dad. It's not like I'm the Joker."

Being a role model for women:

"That's probably the main focus to be a role model for younger girls and send positive messages to never give up and be who they want to be. That's a really big part of the job where you talk to kids at (places like) Make a Wish and have that opportunity to interact."

Her future:

"I'm not 21 anymore and I've got a good head on my shoulders. I'm on cloud nine. I want to be the female Rock. Honestly I can't believe I'm here today. Where I'm going to be in three years, I'm sure I'll be blown away."

Charlotte also discussed her 2015 with WWE, women in sports getting attention and more in the full interview.
