Charlotte Flair isn’t concerned with the mixed reaction she’s getting from fans during her feud with SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
Flair spoke on the latest edition of Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia and said as long as she’s getting a reaction, she’s good with it.
“Whether you’re getting cheered or booed, you’re here to make the audience react. That’s how I look at it,” Flair told Garcia. “I don’t look at it as a negative. I look at it as the fans are invested in a story.”
Charlotte acknowledged the challenge she faces as the “good guy,” saying she’s still learning how to flourish in that role.
“It’s harder for people to accept me as the good guy because I’ve had so much success,” she added.
Flair said it’s a positive challenge, however, because it creates new layers for her character.
Flair also took some exception to the notion that she’s had an easy path to her spot. During the interview, Flair discussed her own struggles — namely, stepping out of her father’s shadow and the pressure that comes with being the child of a wrestling legend.
