WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and was asked about Ronda Rousey working for WWE. “What’s exciting about Ronda being a part of WWE is all the different eyes that she attracts towards the women’s division as a whole,” Flair said. “I think that’s what cool. Ronda is an attraction. Any buzz that puts the women on a different or a higher level, I’m all for. She’s a star that would be a crossover star into our world and that’s exciting. That goes to show how far the women have come, that someone like Ronda Rousey wants to be a part of something that all the women have collectively built. My message to Ronda would be she knows where to find me. I’m on ‘SmackDown Live’ every Tuesday.”
Charlotte also discussed taking part in the WWE Tribute to the Troops event. ““We forget that people are away at war,” Flair said. “The monotony of our lives that we get caught up in work and friends and family and I think we forget that there are people fighting for our freedom and I think we take that for granted. Having that opportunity and experience last year and to be able to have the show this year, knowing what it means to them, to have a little change-up in their day, I was extremely honored to be a part of Tribute this year. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that we didn’t do it at an arena, that we went to them.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
Powell’s POV: WWE has yet to confirm or deny that they have signed or are close to signing Rousey, but obviously that would be a great get. A Rousey vs. Charlotte match feels like a major WrestleMania attraction and there’s always the MMA Horsewomen vs. WWE Horsewomen match. Charlotte spoke more about the Tribute to the Troops taping (no spoilers), the travel schedule, and a career goal.
