This basically reeks of Vince trying to create smark support for Charlotte cause smark crowds don't like her (boo hoo). Has he ever gone to such lenghts for anyone else? As in, whenever Cena, roman or anyone else he liked didn't get the reactions he liked, he would often keep pushing them or simply toss them aside. Charlotte is the only one for whom he ju8mped through all sorts of hoops booking wise so as to try and make sure he can keep pushing her and convince people that he is right to push her. Why such lenghts?

So Charlotte basically all but confirms she's been half assing it for a year because she didn't get that singles match with Ronda (even though she still got to enter to that main event as champion when anyone else in her situation would have simplybeen taken off the card) and the backstage wwe ass kissers defend her and decry it as an injustice; but when Moxley half asses it, he gets called lazy... interesting... Also, she just took a two months break off the singles picture and yet, SvS was about Becky vs Shayna (featuring Bayley as the sacrifical lamb for NXT) and Charlotte captaining the RAW team, and now they are possibly going to have the tag titles match be the main event of the TLC PPV and there's no going to be RAW title defense. What backseat? She is still the fucking centerpiece of the division alongside Becky.
I suspect you are right with all the WWE backstage shills coming out of the woodwork to complain about her booking. Besides the main-event of WM, she got a dream match against Trish Stratus, was captain of Team Raw and is tied with Bayley for 2nd most singles PPV matches this (which only 1 was over 3 stars - and when she won those matches she won by pinfall over Becky and tapping out Trish and Bayley, but when she lost it was by DQ or putting over the turnbuckle). Any reasonable person can see the strong booking she gets without being over, without selling merch, and half-assing her job, but now the backstage shills are telling you what your eyes see is not true and that she has been booked badly for a year and will 'deserve' being on the WM card over the wrestlers you want to see.

If she feels 'not important' it shows that no amounts of strong, protected booking can make up for a lack of charisma. The last time she tapped out on PPV was in 2016 in a tag match. Becky tapped out at the RR and the fans still cheered her name to win rumble and face Ronda. Asuka tapped out at Mania then jobbed to a jobber and the fans still cheered her name to face Ronda at SvS. Whereas she was rejected for a one-on-one against Ronda at Mania even after having a match with Ronda at SvS.

This is what happens when you shoe-horn someone so quickly. It took Becky years to finally reach this position, Sasha still feels like an afterthought in Vince’s mind, even though she is right under Becky for popularity, does bring in good ratings/numbers, and probably the best overall female talent behind Asuka and Io.

Charlotte has won the title 3 times this year, has main evented Mania, wrestled Trish at SS, and the time he said this, she was wrestling every week on Raw. How the fuck do you think Sasha Banks feels?

I’m a big Charlotte Flair fan, but as shadow_spinner said, 3 championship wins this year, main evented Wrestlemania, big SS match with Trish Stratus, main evented TLC. She’s doing fine.

C’mon like, let someone else have a go for a while. Injecting a bit of freshness into the women’s division is really needed right now.

She's the most over pushed, forced down our throats, successful woman in Pro Wrestling history.

What else does she need? She's done everything, won everything, beat everyone and still has a few more Title reigns in her future to get too 16. How much harder can they push her? God forbid she takes a back seat to anyone ever and actually allows the division(s) to even attempt to become interesting and fresh.

And no she wont be remembered as the greatest of all time. Not even close, she's too forced, she's struggled to connect to the fans most of her career, there's never been anything organic about her push, and that's what she'll be remembered for; how the WWE picked her and pushed her to the moon simply because she is Ric's daughter.

And whats that nonsense about her being the Star of the WreslteMania feud? She was the anchor, she weighed it down. That angle careened downwards and people lost interest from the moment Charlotte was shoe horned into it instead of just giving us what we wanted; Becky v Ronda 1 on 1. She ruined that feud, she was the complete opposite of the Star of that feud. You can almost see HHH's hand up Corey's ass making him say this.
The way they added Charlotte into that match was so unforgivable. They buried the Royal Rumble, they buried the SmackDown Women’s Championship, they buried the Brand Split and the entire RAW Women’s Division by having a SmackDown wrestler automatically get handed a RAW Women’s Championship Match for no reason at all, then they buried Asuka at the last minute in an attempt to keep Charlotte from looking like a third wheel by having Charlotte win the SmackDown title. 2002 Triple H ain’t got nothing on Charlotte leading up to WrestleMania. Plus there was no reason for Charlotte to even go after Ronda after Survivor Series (Becky was the one who lost her title at TLC, not Charlotte)

Im not sure what she wants. She has conquered the division easily. all that is left is finding a real tag partner to dominate that division. maybe another 2 or 3rd gen superstar?

Maybe charles flair should just transition into a man fully to become WHC. Vince would cream his pants and give him the title for sure.
