Charlotte Flair: I delivered Ronda Rousey beat-down to remind fans who I am
“The Queen” was rumoured to originally face Ronda at WrestleMania but was made a last minute replacement at Survivor Series, after Ronda’s opponent Becky Lynch was injured just days before the event.
The match ended in chaos when Charlotte got herself disqualified and hammered “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” with a kendo stick and chair-wielding assault.
Fans cheered Charlotte’s vicious heel turn and booed babyface Ronda heavily.
The fans’ reaction intensified the drama and shock value.
Especially after Charlotte had been booed herself for several months in matches against Becky Lynch.
Speaking exclusively to Sun Sport, Charlotte said: “At that time I felt I needed to apologise for all of my accomplishments – that I needed to apologise for being champion so many times or having all these opportunities and being on all these posters. And I actually felt bad about it.
“When I found out I was going to face Ronda at Survivor Series, it was just wasn’t my dream scenario. So I went into Survivor Series saying, ‘I want to remind people who I am.’

“And it just kind of clicked in that moment. I don’t need to apologise for being good and I should never apologise for being a bad-ass, because that’s what I am.
“So I just had to remind people who they were dealing with and I never looked back.”
Charlotte also revealed that the reaction backstage at Survivor Series was just as electric as out in the arena.
She said: “Everyone was like, ‘Wow, I’d pay to see that again.’”
Many fans are predicting that Charlotte’s rivalries with both Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey will now lead them to a triple-threat match at WrestleMania.
If it happens, the popularity of all three superstars could see women headlining WrestleMania for the first time in the event’s 35-year history.
Charlotte said: “If it’s the year to do it, it’s the year to do it. To me it’s fitting. It seems to have been the year for the women.”
