Charlotte on winning the Divas Title, the #DivasRevolution

Brian Fritz of Sportingnews.com passed along a new interview with WWE Divas Champion Charlotte. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On winning the WWE Divas Title at Night of Champions:

“Um … emotional. (Laughs.) It would be the word. Definitely nervous but emotional just because it’s something that I worked towards every single day for three years and to think I was facing Nikki Bella on a major pay-per-view — she’s the longest-reigning Divas Champion — and it was my night to win or lose. It was a personal story. Winning it meant a lot to me knowing that my little brother probably had the best seat in the house.”

Thoughts on how the #DivasRevolution has fared so far in WWE:

“Well, I think people always want to find something to be negative about instead of just being positive that there’s three NXT girls that debuted. I know that we all feel that the Divas Revolution isn’t something that just started when the three of us came up. I think the Divas Revolution has been around for along time, even since Trish (Stratus) and Lita. It’s just as of right now in this moment in time, there’s a bigger focus on our in-ring ability. Catching the phrase — even with Bayley — The Four Horsewomen, people want to pick fun and say, “What’s making a revolution? They’re this, they’re that.” But people are also getting to know who we are on the main roster. Just because we were popular on NXT and then bringing us up to the main roster, it’s kind of like a slogan: Divas Revolution. It’s not saying that the revolution begins or it ends or we’re the revolution or this and that. It’s more of just a catch phrase. We’ve revolutionizing women’s wrestling. We have been for years now. It’s just now there’s new faces, new characters, more demand for women’s wrestling. That’s all it is.”
