WWE/Impact Wrestling News: Sienna takes a dig at Charlotte Flair
What's the story?
Charlotte Flair is a superstar who has wrestling in her blood. The daughter of 2-time WWE Hall of Famer, Ric Flair, the 'genetically superior' athlete has often paid tribute to her father with her ring gear, at some of the biggest pay-per-views.
Former Knockouts Champion, Sienna, took a shot at Charlotte Flair with a Tweet she recently put up, following her performance at Bound for Glory. This is what she had to say in her Tweet:
In case you didn't know...
Charlotte Flair is a proud daughter and has often donned a robe much like Ric Flair did in his heyday to pay tribute to his career and legacy.
In the past, Sienna has accused Charlotte Flair of being inspired by her look and also her signature pinky gesture. She even alluded to the same, when we caught up with her during an Impact Wrestling teleconference call interview.
The heart of the matter
Sienna lost her Impact Wrestling Knockouts Championship to the retiring Gail Kim at Bound for Glory. Following the performance, she sent out this Tweet, and it was clear to see that it was an affront directed at her compatriot from WWE- Charlotte Flair.
The response to her Tweet has been largely negative. It has been dubbed a plea for attention by many on Twitter. This is not good, following the largely unfavourable reviews that followed Bound for Glory, only a few hours before this.
Charlotte Flair will be a part of Team SmackDown Live, heading into Survivor Series. Sienna, on the other hand, will probably have a chance to regain her championship during the forthcoming Impact Wrestling tapings.
We're curious to see who will succeed the retiring Gail Kim as the next Knockouts Champion.
Unless this is leading to a match between Sienna and Charlotte Flair (a la Jericho and Kenny Omega), I do not really see the point of such Tweets.
Sienna is a very gifted wrestler who has a great attitude inside the ring and on the microphone. She does not need to make such underhanded remarks to keep herself in the limelight, in my opinion.
