first_imgSmackDown Live women’s champion Charlotte Flair said that she is honoured to be a part of the Women’s Revolution that is going on in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).Charlotte, who is the daughter of legendary wrestler Ric Flair, will not be able to take a part in the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble because she is currently the SmackDown women’s champion. Talking about that, she said that she is kind of disappointed that way but being able to start the revolution and facing the winner of the first-ever rumble makes her proud.”That’s where I’m torn as my dad won the Royal Rumble in 1992 and some would say that’s one of his highlights of his career. So knowing that I’m a part of history because I will be facing the winner of the Royal Rumble but I won’t be having entrance and there won’t be like ‘Oh Charlotte has won the Royal Rumble’ but I will say that what’s most important to me is knowing that I have been a part of many historic moments that has led us to where we are today and that’s why we are having the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble match because the women have been changing the game over the last few years,” Charlotte said.The women’s revolution is in full swing in the WWE, with Stephanie McMahon’s announcement of the first women’s Royal Rumble marking the latest milestone.”The first ever women’s Royal Rumble match will mark a significant moment in the evolution of WWE,” said Stephanie McMahon on the latest episode of RAW.advertisement”WWE’s female performers are role models, inspiring and empowering women and girls to be confident and strong. They deserve their own match at Royal Rumble,” she said.At WrestleMania 32, WWE unveiled a new Women’s Championship title belt and re-branded the Divas Division to become the Women’s Division. Since then, WWE has placed a greater emphasis on its female superstars including recruitment of female talent from around the world, as well as the recent signings of the first female recruits from the Middle East and India.This year, WWE created the first ever women’s tournament, Mae Young Classic, which included 32 of the top female competitors from 16 countries, underscoring the breadth and international diversity of women in sports entertainment. In addition, earlier this month, WWE Superstars Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss took part in the first-ever women’s match in the Middle East. This year also marked the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank ladders match too, which Carmella won.Excerpts from the interview:ON WOMEN’S REVOLUTIONI’m honoured to discussing the women making history again in the first women’s Royal Rumble match. Obviously I’ll be facing the winner in Wrestlemania 34. So I’m excited to talk about women showing once again that we can do anything.SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATCH AND BEING A PART OF ITI personally feel that we have had so many historic events over the past couple of years. I know that everyone has been pushing for a Royal Rumble and to know that it is happening in less than two months…it’s hard for me to wrap my mind around it. Especially with Wrestlemania season happening again but I think what I am the most excited about is the possibility of who is going to come through the curtain because that is the excitement behind Royal Rumble. If there is going to be someone from the past, if it’s going to be someone, who shined in the Mae Young Classic, is it going to be someone whom we’ve never seen before and a completely different sports world. So I haven’t really wrapped my mind around it but I’m extremely excited.CHANCES OF SHAYNA BASZLER OR RONDA ROUSEY SHOWING UPI definitely think there’s a possibility especially with Shayna making her mark in the Mae Young Classic. For Ronda I have no idea but that’s the excitement in the Royal Rumble…anything can happen and we have seen that with the men over the past 20 something years. So do I see it happening? Yeah! Anything can happen in the Rumble.   DETAILS OF THE ROYAL RUMBLE MATCHIt will take place in January Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. It will be the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble and as far as I know, women from the past, NXT, the Mae Young Classic, RAW and SmackDown will have the privilege to participate in the unprecedented event and the winner will go on to face me head-to-head in Wrestlemania 34.last_img
