One Persons Thoughts on Charlotte Flair vs Asuka
In less than one week, Charlotte Flair will defend the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Asuka at WrestleMania 34. This comes from Asuka winning the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble back in January. In line with the winner of the Rumble, they are able to select which champion they want at WrestleMania. The answer was given at Fastlane, when Asuka made her intention clear. At WrestleMania 34, it will be The Queen vs The Empress – Charlotte Flair vs Asuka. In a recent interview, the defending champion Charlotte Flair has opened on Charlotte Flair vs Asuka…
When asked why she wants to face Asuka, Charlotte Flair responded…
“She has so much respect from the WWE Universe and fans worldwide, and she’s different. For me it’s more because I’ve never faced her. No one’s even seen a singles, a tag, nothing from NXT. I mean, we have never crossed paths and that is very special in our industry. Because, I mean, you’ve at least wrestled once, right? How have we never touched?”
When asked when she found out she was facing Asuka, Charlotte Flair responded…
“At the Royal Rumble I was standing there hoping that everyone was going, ‘She has to pick me. I’m the only logical pick. She has to pick me!’ and then Ronda music hits, and I’m like, ‘No, she still has to pick me’ because I wanted to face Asuka that bad and I didn’t know. I didn’t know – I kind of heard rumblings – but I didn’t know for sure until Fastlane.”
When asked about her absence from SmackDown Live last week, Charlotte Flair responded…
“I’m good. They just kept me off TV because it was so swollen and I was talking funny from the stitches. They cleared me to wrestle, but I just looked a mess. So, I’ll be back next week.”
One thing is for certain. Charlotte Flair vs Asuka will undoubtedly be one of the best women’s matches in the history of WrestleMania. But who will walk out victorious. Will The Queen continue her reign or will she end the streak of The Empress? Sunday will be the time to find out.
Who do you think will be victorious in Charlotte Flair vs Asuka? We’d love to know what you think!
