WWE superstar Charlotte Flair spoke with Talk Sport about her TLC main event tag team match against the Kabuki Warriors, where she teamed up with long-time rival and current Raw women’s champion, Becky Lynch. Flair mentions that there was some pressure to live up to the bouts brutal stipulation, but assured that she was aware of Kairi Sane’s injury that caused them to improvise on the spot.
It’s the main event of a brutal pay-per-view and everyone has already seen Tables, Ladders and Chairs. It’s feeding off the crowd, going with the crowd and feeding off their reactions. So I didn’t really think anything until after. Obviously Kairi was hurt, but in the match I’m just thinking ‘How do we keep people invested?’ with them already seeing so many different TLC, brutal matches. You’ve already seen a kendo stick, you’ve already seen a chair, you’ve seen a ladder, a table.
She continues…discussing the dynamic between herself and Lynch.
And the pressure of us delivering that, with a weird dynamic seeing me and Becky tag? To me, me and Becky tagging is more what I was thinking about. How does that come across and how our characters should be interacting on television. How do you go from this [indicates high level] to all of a sudden, ‘They’re tagging?’ We had the ‘Let’s fight the enemy because we have a common enemy’ [mentality].
