Before her NXT Women’s title defence at last night’s NXT Takeover: In Your House, Charlotte Flair spoke to Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda to promote the show. Was she successful in her title defence? If you don’t know, find out here.

Cassidy asked Flair whether she would ever like to follow the example set by fellow daughter of a Horseman, Impact Wrestling’s Tessa Blanchard.

Blanchard is the reigning Impact Wrestling World Champion after defeating Sami Callihan in January. She has not wrestled since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic and Impact are due to make an announcement on the future of the championship tomorrow.

Of pursuing similar goals, Flair said:

“It’s something that I want to pursue but, if you look at the big picture, when women are succeeding in different organizations all around the world, we’re all succeeding and we’re all winning from that, so for her to hold that accolade is just…

We should support and be just extremely proud, as a woman, to see her do that because when one’s doing well, we’re all doing well, and that is what has pretty much driven the Women’s Revolution is we work better in numbers, so it’s not something that I think about right now but I couldn’t be more proud and happy for what she is doing for women around the world.”

Reading slightly between the lines it does seem like Flair is happy carving our her legacy in the women’s division but never say never.
