Charlotte Flair Reportedly Isolated Herself From WWE Locker Room

Flair has a reputation of reportedly being 'difficult'

Further details have emerged regarding Charlotte Flair's position and standing in WWE following reports of issues backstage with Becky Lynch after the main event segment of this past week's WWE SmackDown.

Speaking on PWTorchVIP in an audio clip, Wade Keller provided an update on the backstage situation between Flair and Lynch while also delving further into the context surrounding Flair in WWE right now. 

Keller said: "From what I’m told from people behind the scenes [is that] none of the women want to work with her. Like, not in the ring, in a match, not on the mic and I’ve sort of been not going into tons of detail on it and some situations there’s been some speculation [that] I didn’t want to get into in terms of what’s going on and what’s causing it but it became newsworthy again last night.

"I specifically reached out to people in seeking out Charlotte’s side of this because it does, from the people I’ve been talking to, it just feels so one-sided. And these are people I trust and I talk to them about other things. This isn’t like I’m talking to people who are anti-Charlotte. It’s just sort of people in WWE I talk to, some wrestlers and others, who are just reliable, and the stuff they tell me seems agenda-free and it’s played out as standing the test of time before…I don’t hear anyone defending Charlotte in this. Somebody in so many words said Becky is a hero to the locker room for calling out Charlotte and not letting her get away with what she does.

“One wrestler I talk to just said that the way - and I’m paraphrasing here to lighten up the language a bit because this wrestler that was not thrilled with Charlotte just said - the way Charlotte’s acting is gonna cause issues both with colleagues and with management. He really stressed how respected and well liked Becky is universally in the locker room and that she was seen as a bit of a hero for it. Basically, the idea was Charlotte was being difficult and Becky wasn’t going to take it anymore. She wasn’t gonna have it anymore and that’s what led to the confrontation.

“Charlotte has a reputation flat out for being difficult and constantly concerned that she’s not getting the respect that someone of her stature and accomplishment or at least her character stature and her character’s accomplishment...

"Charlotte has really isolated herself from the rest of the locker room. There’s not a lot of friendliness interaction. She’s kind of in her own world now and so she’s just not endearing herself to the locker room in any way. It’s not like that makes them side against her but that’s a symptom of people are wondering what’s going on with her and that she’s just in her own head and overreacting to things and over scrutinizing things and questioning everything and worried that she’s not being given the protection and the spotlight and the being portrayed as a level higher than everybody else and others are [saying], well, what makes you think you’re better than us and at that level to that degree and if you were it’s a very ungracious way and kind of a paranoid way to go about things.

“The last thing is that Charlotte feels she can get away with it because there’s just not enough depth on the roster to punish her. Right now they got networks that want ratings and they did a draft and they evenly divided it and if they were to punish Charlotte at this point, you’re reducing a weak SmackDown roster even more and they just don’t think they can afford to do that…This is a situation that they are going to have to manage and it looks like what happened with Nia Jax and that wasn’t the first thing and it wasn’t the last thing that happened before this but this situation needs to be addressed and I know there’s people who used to like Charlotte that don’t even recognize her anymore."
