Behind the Real Charlotte

06/13/2020

In an article written by Colin Tessier, from Wrestle Zone, Charlotte Flair acknowledge critics about being overexposed on "Better Together" with Maria Menounos.  There are a few things that Charlotte mentioned in her interview:

1. "It's so hard for people to see past 'Charlotte's always in the picture', but this isn't HER storyline. She's a tool in the story they're trying to build."

John Cena said it best on the Corey Graves' podcast "After the Bell" that you do not have one person you go see. There are so many superstars that fans want to watch them succeed. In a sense, many fans are upset to see Charlotte on television instead of Liv Morgan, Shayna Baszler, and more. Charlotte has been on every brand (RAW, NXT, Smackdown) since being an NXT Champion. So, what is the big picture if she is a tool for the storyline?

WWE has a way of keeping fans in suspense regardless of commendation or condemnation. It is believed that Charlotte will be a 16-time women's champion but has not won many title matches compared to when she started after NXT. She lost the NXT title to Io Shirai. She has been defeated by Bayley, Becky Lynch, and Carmella. Charlotte has lost ten straight triple threat matches. However, she has wrestled and defeated Asuka, Mia Yim, Liv Morgan, Kayden Carter, and Bianca Belair. Maybe, the bigger picture is to build the women's division, so when Charlotte does lay on her back for the win, the focus will be on them. These are the things that John Cena did at the end of his full-time WWE career.  

2...noting that she wishes she would have figured out things sooner. 

Besides Charlotte in the ring, what about the real Charlotte outside the ring? She had mentioned about wishing she would have figured out things sooner. Charlotte (real name is Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr) is 34 years old. She claimed that she is figuring life out late because 20-year-olds surround her in the locker room. Isn't life full of challenges? Do we figure things out at a young age, or do we develop each day? Life can throw you some curve calls and obstacles to reach your exact destination.

Expert Editor Daniel E. Waldschidt stated that "The secret to getting what you want from life is understanding that what you do right now drives your future." Many young adults do not know what they want to do in life. After graduating from high school, they take different paths such as college, work, etc. People start a career and realize that they have a passion for doing something else. That is part of life. It does not matter the age of a person. It would be best if you never compared yourself to others. Some people have accomplished their goals regardless their status.

At age 95, Nola Ochs became the oldest person to receive a college diploma.

At age 80, Christine Brown of Laguna Hills, California, flew to China and climbed the Great Wall.

At age 46, Jack Nicklaus became the oldest man ever to win the Masters.
