What’s been said?

Charlotte Flair is set to return this weekend when she faces bitter rival Rhea Ripley.

Flair took seven months away from the ring towards the end of 2022 but is back and better than ever as she looks forward to the future.

Speaking exclusively to Sportsmail, Flair gave her thoughts on taking some time away from the sport.

‘When you come back you don’t feel like you ever left because you get back into the daily grind so quickly, but it definitely gave me a refresh and the opportunity to come back with a new perspective because any time you step away from something and come back without the baggage, I feel a certain lightness when I’m out there.

‘I don’t have to try to be good or bad, I can just be the star that I am. The one big difference is being able to interact with the kids around the ring after so many years of just always leaving after the match or not getting to engage or not wanting it.

‘Yes, you always want to engage with the fans, but I never got to have that reception with them the way I have it now. It’s been so much fun and so rewarding and special, it’s awesome. I must have done something right all these years!
