Charlotte Continues To Push For A Women’s Championship & Retiring The Phrase “Divas”

WWE Divas Champion Charlotte recently appeared as a guest on her fathers podcast, “WOOOOO! Nation with Ric Flair” and spoke about a number of topics, including her desire to retire the term “Diva” and bring back the WWE Women’s Championship to replace the butterfly Divas title, her WrestleMania dream opponent and some of the main differences between the main WWE roster and NXT. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On if she’d wear a robe like Ric Flair and wanting to work with Natalya at WrestleMania:

“If I have my WrestleMania moment, I would like to have a robe made. There is so much family history there, with Bret [Hart] in her corner and my dad in mine.”

On wanting to change the perception of women’s wrestling:

“My dream and goals are to change the face of women’s wrestling, and being champion, I hope that gives me a little more leeway and opportunity to do that. I want to main event a pay-per-view. I want to wrestle at WrestleMania. I want to bring back the Women’s Championship. I want longer matches. I want those crossover segments. I want more storylines, [and] just not to be eye candy or popcorn matches. And, hopefully, being champion at the moment, I just can somewhat kick open more doors and pave the way for more opportunities.”

On wanting to retire the term “Diva,” the butterfly design title belt and bring back the WWE Women’s Championship:

“I’m not taking away anything from the Divas Championship. I just think as the division is evolving, the title can evolve too. But from what I understand, I think NXT is going to go to not using ‘diva’ anymore, so it would only be natural for that to happen on the main roster as well. But just think of how many years of branding [are] behind the butterfly Divas Championship, so it just can’t happen overnight.”

On the main difference between NXT and the main roster being the amount of time you have to prepare:

“What’s so different is NXT, you meet once a month and you tape four shows. The main roster, every single week and the show goes on, so every Monday, and then you have SmackDown tapings every Tuesday. I mean, you are go, go, go, go, go. NXT, maybe you find out a week ahead of time before what’s going to be taped at the next NXT tapings, so you’ll get to work that girl at the live event. Maybe you get to practice [and] maybe you won’t, but on the main roster, it’s changing up until the show starts. The times, maybe the finish, maybe the storyline, maybe even the person changes. The pressure and the money behind what’s happening on the main roster is completely different than NXT.”
