Charlotte says he sees potential in a lot of blondes.
Ric says he saw she could be a great competitor. He thought he could motivate her. You became a champion on your own, but i feel like I had a part in that. How about the tough love and advice. The things we have done together. I love you and want the best for you. The man behind the Raw Women’s Title. I want the women to be the biggest part of the market. If you think I am doing anything to trash our name. I want the name to be household.
Charlotte says she does not see it that way. You say you want to support the women but you are trying to take the spotlight from me. When I am in the ring, it is my time. I am in the ring to prove that I am not Ric Flair’s daughter, but that I am Charlotte Flair. Charlotte says she is thankful for the doors you have opened and for what you have given me, but let me be Charlotte Flair.
Charlotte walks away.
We go to commercial.
