• Charlotte Flair Was Disappointed After Sasha Banks Went Off-Script During A Promo With Her
In her “Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte” autobiography, multi-time WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair recalled Sasha Banks going off-script during a promo segment with her.
This incident happened in NXT, on the road to NXT TakeOver: R Evolution in December 2014.
Below is what Charlotte wrote:
“I knew where the segment was going in terms of setting us up for our match. I didn’t realize that she was going to take one of my ‘DO IT WITH FLAIR’ T-Shirts and cut it, so it would say, ‘DO IT LIKE A BOSS’.
I also didn’t know she was going to say negative things about my dad. At one point, she even referred to him as a ‘pathetic old man’. That’s when I knew that the fire people saw from The Boss character had truly arrived – it was real.
I would’ve been fine with all those things. I just thought Sasha would’ve spoken to me about them first. The situation was disappointing, especially when I remember how we came up together.
I never imagined that I’d become alienated from someone I had so admired professionally and someone I considered a friend. I thought we’d be working ‘together’ in every sense of the word, but I was wrong.”
At NXT TakeOver: R Evolution, Charlotte defeated Sasha to retain the NXT Women’s Championship.
In February 2015, at NXT TakeOver: Rival, Sasha defeated Charlotte, Bayley & Becky Lynch in a Fatal 4-Way match to win the NXT Women’s Title.
