‘The Queen’ has embraced herself as the biggest name on the roster and feels she is far more decorated than anyone else and doesn’t need to prove herself any further. Cutting a fiery promo on the Raw after Mania, Flair made it clear that she wasn’t looking for title opportunities and that she was the opportunity.

Appearing on the latest edition of WWE’s The Bump, Charlotte Flair made a bold statement on fans criticizing her over her demands, given that she doesn’t have a belt around her waist anymore, and hasn’t had one for a while. 

“I think that’s kind of the idea of being ‘The Opportunity.’ Everyone [says], ‘Oh, she takes everyone’s opportunity!’ So, you spin it and you put some truth into it. ‘Well, yeah. Because I am ‘The Opportunity.’”

Charlotte sees herself as the one to beat, the final boss of every battle, and has learned through her series of accolades that she is the most established Superstar in the Women’s Division. 

“I don’t want to diminish what the championships mean and I don’t want to say ‘bigger,’ but I don’t need to hold a championship to be the champion,” Flair explained. (h/t Fightful)

Charlotte Flair is justified in every claim she makes

Charlotte is inarguably the most decorated Superstar in WWE’s Women’s Division, having held the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships, the Women’s Tag team Championship, the NXT Women’s Champion, and the WWE Divas Championship.

Given the fact that the Divas Championship no longer exists, no one will ever be able to match her record and she remains at the top of the pecking order in that regard. She is the big money fight. 

What ‘The Queen’ is trying to say is, Superstars have to get through er to earn a name for themselves and that facing her, with or without a Championship around her waist.

Rhea Ripley hasn’t managed to overcome this challenge, and will soon get to face Charlotte Flair yet again as the latter inevitably challenges for the Raw Women’s Championship. ‘The Opportunity’ will meet ‘The Brutality’ and settle the score once and for all.
