Charlotte Flair has been on a heavy promotional tour for her new book “Second Nature” that she wrote with her father Ric Flair. When she’s not winning matches on Smackdown Live (sorry Carmella), she’s doing interviews talking about her life, the book and a potential match with Ronda Rousey.
During an appearance on the Busted Open Radio Show, the hosts mentioned that when they were at the Jim Ross show with Paul Heyman over SummerSlam weekend last month, Heyman was asked who he would like be the advocate for. Heyman said if he couldn’t be the advocate for Brock Lesnar then he would want to be there for Charlotte as her advocate in a match against Ronda Rousey.
The hosts asked Charlotte about that and Charlotte also talked about how nervous she was at WrestleMania 32 in 2016 with Heyman offering her some important advice.
“I would love Paul (Heyman) to manage me. I do know at WrestleMania 32 I was extremely nervous and the pressure of being in the center of AT&T Stadium. I didn’t know how to comprehend that. And Paul just took me aside and said ‘I need you to prove to them why you are the center of that poster.’ That’s what he said to me like 20 minutes before I walked out there and I’ll never forget it.”
It sounds like a great idea that would also shine a bigger spotlight on Charlotte because Heyman has a well earned reputation as one of the best advocates (don’t call him a manger or he’ll get mad) in the history of wrestling. Charlotte is already arguably the top women’s wrestler in WWE whether she has a title or not, so it seems like a good fit.
Charlotte was also asked about Rousey and said that she had no idea what might happen with her whether it’s a 4 on 4 tag or if she’ll get to face Rousey. She may be honest in saying that, but she could also be keeping WWE’s plans private because Rousey is training to wrestle, but nothing has been announced.
