As former WWE Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is still under the WWE contract and WrestleMania season is fast approaching, fans want her to return to the ring as soon as possible. However, one of the top stars of the women’s division, Charlotte Flair, thinks they are better off without her.
Former MMA fighter Ronda is out of in-ring action since 2019. Recently she even commented on her chances to win the upcoming Women’s, Royal Rumble. However, Flair has some other thoughts.
To promote the upcoming pay-per-view, Flair took part in a media call. Amidst a plethora of questions, the one-half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions was asked about her opinions on the rumored return of Rousey.
Alex McCarthy of TalkSport revealed Flair said, “Can Ronda Rousey add to the division? Absolutely. Do we need her? No,” in the press meet.
“Well, ‘need’ is a very strong word. Do I think Ronda adds to the division? 100% — but ‘need’? No. We have an incredible list of already established stars and ones that are on the rise. So, ‘need’ is a strong word, but do I think she brings a lot to the table? 100%,” explained Flair.
Rousey had her last match in WrestleMania 35 when she lost her title to Becky Lynch. However, she resumed training with Roddy Piper’s daughter last year.
Charlotte Flair is feuding with Lacey Evans on WWE Raw
Upon her return to the ring at TLC, Flair and RAW Women’s Champion Asuka won the Women’s Tag Team championship from Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Recently, she and Lacey Evans got into a fight over Ric Flair. The WWE Hall of Famer seems to have some preference over Evans, which Flair does not like.
“The transition to the storyline with my dad, I guess the most important thing the viewers have to see is how much I have grown as a performer from the last time I was on TV with him,” Flair said. “Fathers and daughters fight. It’s now how I handle it. I’ve turned on my dad before, so now it’s looking at it from a perspective of did he turn on me, or am I just fed up. People will need to see how it plays out.”
For now, Flair’s hands are full as she and Asuka will be facing Jax and Baszler at Royal Rumble to defend their titles.
