Charlotte Flair Cites Meritocracy as Reason She's on Every WWE Brand

Charlotte Flair has explained why WWE has her appearing on every brand, and it's not because she's the daughter of Ric Flair and seen as the face of the Women's Division by Vince McMahon. According to an interview with Sportskeeda, the reason Flair gets so much exposure is because she's just a hard worker, dammit.

"I think like I am doing some of the best work of my career right now," Charlotte said, expressing frustration with people who complain she's overexposed. "Promo-wise and in-ring-wise but because people see me all the time, I think they're used to it and the expectation is so high, and it's so frustrating because it's like, 'Well, am I not supposed to be hungry? Am I not supposed to always want to be on top? Am I not supposed to be fighting to get better?'"

"I don't know. It's like a Catch-22," Flair continued. "I think the biggest thing for me is, yes, I'm on all three brands, but if you look at my storylines that I am a part of, I am a part of someone else's storyline, it's not like anything is a 'Charlotte Flair' push. Like there's nothing that… I'm just put because I can basically do anything and everything they ask." Of course, what WWE asks is usually to compete for and often win a brand's championship. Flair just came off a run as NXT Champion and has seemingly inserted herself right into the Raw title picture. But Flair says that's not a push. "Like, going to SmackDown was not for me," she said. "That's not a push. That is 'Charlotte Flair is a name and she's coming to SmackDown.'"

"So, currently, I am just all over the place, brand-wise, because I am the hardest worker, and I will say that, for the women," Flair said of all of her colleagues. "I've been going straight for six years. And, you know, I don't know, I like getting better, I like being at work, this is my job, I love it. I don't want to go away. But it is frustrating because I think people take the growth and my work, you know, for granted because they see it all the time. It's not like, 'Oh, man…' It's hard. I don't know what the right answer is."
