WWE Raw Women's Champion Charlotte Flair was recently interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel to promote the free WrestleMania 33 On-Sale Party last week in Orlando. You can check out some highlights form the interview below:
"I'm just carrying on his legacy and being able to be on the same stage as him when he was at the Citrus Bowl in 2008 means a lot."
How much it means to her that she is in Orlando for the on-sale ticket release party:
"Well with the Performance Center being here, and NXT's 'home', I think it's pretty neat that the fans who watch the future talent rise to the main roster being around, but I live here so it's really nice for me. So it's like I just drive ten minutes down the road to the on sale party, yeah it's exciting."
If getting booed makes her feel bad:
"If they're not booing then I'm not doing a good job. I like it, whether they're cheering or booing it's still a reaction and my role on the main roster is to be a bad guy. If they aren't booing I feel like I'm not doing my job well."
The WWE transforming from 'Divas' to athletes:
"I don't really think about it on a daily basis, but it's nice to be looked at as 'Oh, she's a female wrestler. Oh, she's a wrestler.' And I think that's a positive image to little girls, that they can be anything that they want to be, and I hope that's what I stand for. Other than being mean. Being tough, strong, intelligent, independent, and that's what I hope I stand for and I hope that's what the audience sees."
