“NXT needs girls like Summer, Sasha and myself because we have all overcome obstacles in and out of the ring,” Charlotte expressed.  “I have been respectful to others my whole life, even when I didn't need to be. I know how gifted I am athletically, and everyone knows who my father is, but I never rubbed it in anyone’s face. Yet countless people choose not to show me the same respect, so I’m done. I will no longer be looked at as someone who was given everything because of her last name. I’m proud to be a Flair, but I’m also proud to be genetically superior to the other Divas.”

A similar attitude is shared by Charlotte’s cohort, Banks. Before falling short of defeating NXT Women’s Champion Paige, the talented NXT Diva was a model citizen who worked hard and refrained from the controversial pitfalls that have plagued others. However, in her words, the efforts were lost on NXT officials.

“I just learned that being a goody-two-shoes will only get you so far in life,” Sasha bluntly stated. “When I was growing up, I was home-schooled until seventh grade, and I had to take care of my little brother. I had to act like an adult when most kids in grade school were only concerned about which toys their parents were going to buy them. But what happens? I get teased for acting too much like a grown-up.”

According to Banks, such judgment continued to be passed her way as she tried to climb up the NXT ladder. “Do you know what it’s like to be forgotten? To know that you're a star, yet the spotlight isn't on you? I was never the first choice for NXT autograph sessions, promotional flyers or even title opportunities. Just because my name isn’t Emma or Paige doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be given any attention.”
