WWE Women's Champion Charlotte spoke with Yahoo Sports to promote tonight's WWE Draft and SmackDown going live. The full interview is at this link and highlights are below:

On a personal level, how will the upcoming draft impact your friendships in the guys and gals in the locker room?

On a personal level, I obviously don't want to get drafted away from my best friend, but on a professional level, I think it's exciting. I think it's an opportunity to create more competition. "Raw" wants to be better than "SmackDown." "SmackDown" is going to want to be better than "Raw." Everyone is just going to have to work that much harder to set the bar and have the better show. I know for me being a woman, I know it's that much closer to me main eventing a pay-per-view. So, yeah, it's exciting in general. I just have no idea what's going to happen tomorrow [on Tuesday]. Will I work both shows or be all women or just one show or will we be divided, I have no idea.

What was it like to have a storyline with Ric and what's it been like not having him around every week with you on the road?

It's a mixed blessing. He definitely was great to have but there was a time for him to leave I did learn a lot having my dad on the road though. Personally, I learned a lot just with him critiquing me when we got back. And just the fact that Ric Flair, not my Dad, was out ringside and I wanted all the attention and I had to not let him overshadow me so I took it as I had to work that much harder while I'm out there, having him out there.
