Charlotte Flair surprised everyone when she returned to the ring for the first time in 7 months and now Flair has commented on her shock comeback.
Charlotte Flair made her return to the ring after a seven-month absence on the final SmackDown of 2022 when she successfully dethroned Ronda Rousey as SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Speaking on WWE’s The Bump, The Queen commented on what the fan reaction she received in Tampa meant to her:
“I was sincerely so touched by the fan reaction on Friday. Like, I’ve done a lot of things in my career, but to see the smiles and the cheers and the reception that I received when I came back, I was just thinking to myself whenever I thought negatively, or do I still have it? I always know I still have it, but it was just very rewarding after this journey that I have had for ten years.”
“Being in the audience, which I’ve never done before, here I was holding the title in Tampa where my career started came full circle, and being back after eight months, it really made me emotional.”
“After being gone for eight months, the things that I worried about before I don’t worry about as much. Like, my legacy is cemented now, and I think moving forward, I’ve always been so serious. I’m serious about being the champion and the title progressing and never resting and coasting. I just let me know that everyone had appreciated what I’ve done leading up to being back after eight months. It meant a lot to me.”
Charlotte Flair’s father Ric Flair explained how he missed his daughter’s epic comeback despite being in the arena for some of the SmackDown show.
