Charlotte On People Making Fun Of Her For Being Divorced

Charlotte spoke with Arm Drag Takedown with Pollo Del Mar about a number of wrestling topics. You can check out the full interview by clicking here and here are some of the highlights via the Huffington Post:

Talking about her divorce in her book, Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte:

"It really got to me when I first started in WWE that people would make fun of me being divorced. My dad has been divorced so many times. I don't know why it bothered me. I don't know whether it's because I hate failing or I was embarrassed or comparing myself to my female peers I don't know. But to just get that off my chest, explain what I've been through or what I've learned, [how] I've come out a better person. I think that was the hardest part to share."

The death of her brother, Reid:

"I don't think I'll ever put losing my little brother to rest, because I have so much guilt. Just the fact he has never seen me on the main roster is so hard like I deal with it every, single day."

Feeling the pressure to elevate her game, because she was Ric Flair's daughter:

"When you walk out through that curtain, and people know you're Ric Flair's kid, you're not going to get away from it either you accept it or you don't. Fans can think what they want. But if I was just another 5'10" blonde that was very athletic that stepped through, I don't think I would have dealt with as much criticism as I did. I think the criticism and pressure is what's gotten me to where I am today. It elevated my game."
