Charlotte Flair has shed some light on how WWE stars reacted to her match at WrestleMania.

WWE has put more focus on the division in recent years thanks to the Women’s Revolution. We now have two different women’s divisions as well as the title.

One division on Monday Night Raw and the other on SmackDown. The former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion has taken the WWE by storm since being called up to the main roster in 2015 during the Women’s Revolution storyline.

She has won championships both in NXT and on the main roster. At first, she was portrayed as her real-life personality then she started to come out of her father’s spotlight and become her own person.

Flair, who joined WWE back in 2012, has found success in both NXT and on the main roster. She has held the NXT Women’s, Divas, and Raw Women’s Championships.

Now, that she is on SmackDown Live, she is looking to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

Flair is still trying to find herself while competing on the blue brand as a babyface. For the majority of her career (including NXT and main roster) she has worked as a heel.

However, when WWE decided to trade her to SmackDown Live last year during the Superstar Shakeup, they turned her into a babyface.

Flair spoke with the Press of Atlantic City to talk about various topics including her SmackDown Women’s Title match against Asuka at WrestleMania 34 that took place on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Here is what she had to say:

"And never do I think the men don't support us. That's not what I'm saying. It's one of those things that I remember after my match with Asuka [at WrestleMania 34], a couple of the boys came up to me and were like, 'just helluva match.'

There is nothing more satisfying than hearing that from a man. I'm not taking away from a girl saying it either, but it's just like, 'heck yea, I'm doing it,' you know?

For them to appreciate your athleticism, your work, your effort, your story-telling because they really are… There's nothing better."

She also talked about the upcoming WWE Evolution pay-per-view event that takes place later this year.

"I heard rumors. You never know what's going to happen. I hear things all the time that never come to light. I just gotta go, the best advice is to focus on your tunnel vision. Just keep moving forward. Don't expect things.

Just keep working. I knew if we kept working as hard as we did something like this would happen. And also too, I think it takes for the first time we have the depth to have an all-women's pay per view.

That's what matters most is that we have that many women that are that talented."
