Speaking on ESPN FC’s Get Up show, Flair acknowledged ‘The Man‘ as her competition and gave her take on the downfall of their friendship. Charlotte said (Sportskeeda Wrestling), “Here’s how I look at it. You have two women at the top of their game and both of them want to be the best. So who’s the best?”

“Competition breeds competition, and I think we just got older and not necessarily that success doesn’t get to your head and that’s why you lose a friendship. It’s just we both want to be on top, and there’s only room for one,” she added.
