Booker T, the former WWE star during the latest edition of Hall of Fame podcast spoke on the current scenario of the women’s division in WWE and also the Women’s Tag-Team Champions, Charlotte Flair and Asuka.
Booker T on importance of Charlotte Flair
During the podcast, Booker T discussed how the absence of former WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion, Charlotte who recently made his much-awaited return to WWE scree, affected the women’s division.
With the absence of the Queen from WWE programming the women’s division was apparently weak. Flair took a hiatus of few months until she returned at WWE TLC and was revealed as the tag-team partner of WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Asuka.
The team of Flair and Asuka challenged the team of Shayna Bazsler and Nia Jax with Women’s Tag-Team Championship on the line and eventually won the match.
During the podcast, Booker T said that the locker room was affected by the absence of Flair and her return in that manner was lauded by the former WWE Champion.
He said: “The ladies locker room has kinda dwindled a little bit. It’s not as strong at it was (from) a couple of years ago. With Charlotte out of the picture – Charlotte took a hiatus, she was gone.
He added: “ It was definitely a sight to see Charlotte come back in that fashion – grand fashion – pay-per-view. Only looking like she can and then go out there and do work, cash in as well to become champion.”
Booker T believes the tag-team will soon split up
Charlotte Flair is one of the most decorated stars in the women’s division and possesses the charisma to draw the attention of the fans.
The Hall of Famer then spoke about the tag-team champions and reckoned that the team will not last long and something might be up the sleeves of the WWE creative.
Booker T said, “That’s what she does. I thought that was great. But, I’m still a little worried about the women’s division. To see Charlotte back in action with Asuka, it lets me know, we’ve got some stuff on the rise over the horizon… c’mon, how long is this love fest gonna last? Not very long. So we know something’s coming up.”
He also said that the division lacks the star status after the absence of stars like Becky Lynch, Sarah Logan and The Bella Twins. However, he praised Bayley and called he a “standout star.”
