We are back and Charlotte says when you are Charlotte Flair . . . you always have a plan. I showed that one trick pony why I am the most dominant, most vicious, and most decorated champion of all time. Who knew you could smash someone’s head into a car and dent it. I have been playing that over and over. I had Ronda seconds from tapping and the referees and officials pulled me off. That is a taste of what will happen at Wrestlemania. I will send you back to the bottom because my legcy is bigger than yours.
When you lose at Wrestlemania, you will run away and pop out another baby. You don’t have the spine or the passion to become the thirteen time women’s champion.
I don’t want to wait until Wrestlemania to eviscerate you. I want you to come out and get destroyed in my home town.
