Charlotte Flair, who was declared Becky Lynch’s replacement for the WrestleMania 35 match with RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey, received a mixed reaction when she came to talk about the event on Tuesday.
Speaking at the event, Flair said that Vince McMahon did not choose her for the biggest match of the year because she was his favourite but because she was a winner and deserved it. Flair addressed the crowd booing her, saying that even if they were not happy with the decision of her replacing Lynch, she promised a WrestleMania where everybody will be standing on their feet and screaming ‘this is awesome’ chant.
She then promised she would be front row for Rousey’s Raw Women’s Title defense this Sunday at WWE Elimination Chamber against Ruby Riott. The crowd chanted ‘you s*ck’ but Charlotte shrugged it off before pointing to the WrestleMania sign and walking off.
