WWE superstar Charlotte Flair has admitted she has found recent criticism from the fans “frustrating”.
Flair, one of the top stars in the WWE right now, recently appeared on the Wrestling Daft podcast to discuss a number of topics. One of the topics discussed was about the criticism Flair has been receiving for her role on TV right now. Some weeks, Flair has been appearing on all three brands – RAW, Smackdown and NXT, fans feel as though she is taking away the spotlight from other stars.
“I think I’m doing some of my best work in my career right now” Flair said. “I realise that because people see me all the time, I just don’t think…it’s not what they’re used to and the expectation is so high.”
“It’s so frustrating. Because it’s like ‘what am I not supposed to be hungry? Am I not supposed to, you know, always want to be on top? Am I not supposed to be fighting to get better?’ So, I don’t know, it’s like a catch 22.”
The 34-year-old says that although she has been on all three brands, it has been to help enhance other talent.
“I think the biggest thing for me? Yes I’m on all three brands. But if you look at my storylines that I’m a part of? I’m a part of someone else’s storyline, it’s not like anything is a Charlotte Flair ‘push.’ Going to SmackDown was not for me, that’s not a push. Charlotte Flair is a ‘name’ and she is coming to SmackDown. Currently, I am just all over the place brand wise; because I am the hardest worker, and I will say that for the women.”
