Night before WWE’s pay-per-view FASTLANE Dom Rini & Jeff Blackburn caught up with the current Diva Champ Charlotte.  This is a pretty sweet interview with Charlotte.  Of course they cover the “growing up with Rick Flair as your dad questions”, and who wouldn’t?  But these guys did a bit deeper for a nice background of her tenure in NXT and WWE. This was the buildup to the road to Wrestlemania.

To listen to the interview just press play below.



Rock On The Range–the largest and most-acclaimed rock festival in America–has announced additions to the 10th Anniversary festival experience May 20, 21 & 22, 2016 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH.
