Charlotte Talks Facing Bayley at Royal Rumble, If She Feels Uncomfortable Bringing Real Life into WWE Promos, Her Dream WWE Match, More

WWE Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte recently spoke with Joshua Caudill of CraveOnline. Below are some highlights:

At the Royal Rumble you are defending against Bayley. What are your thoughts heading into this Sunday?
Charlotte: I’m just really excited. The story itself and being able to use real life aspects to add to the build has been a lot of fun. On Raw a couple of weeks ago, when we showed the real photos of her with superstars, that was actually really her journal. It has been a lot of fun for each of us to play our parts of good guy and bad guy and having a definitive line between the two.
You brought up making it personal in the build. Are you or her ever uncomfortable when you bring real life aspects into promos?
Charlotte: If I was I her, to be able to know that she’s able to share her passion of WWE to the world, that’s who Bayley is. For me, sometimes I feel so weird saying this and I’ll apologize a million times before I walk out of gorilla. But my lines are to make the audience feel a certain way and that makes the audience love her that much more. As long as it is in good taste because that’s my job.
Who would be your dream match?
Charlotte: My dream match would be “Queen vs. Queen” Stephanie McMahon. But who’s going to be the good guy [laughs]. It will be evil vs. evil.
