10 Wrestlers Who Couldn't Hide Their Anger At Doing A Job

9. Charlotte Flair - WWE WrestleMania Backlash 2022

Charlotte Flair

Charlotte Flair, by her own admission, can "come across cold on TV".

When asked by TV Insider in 2021 whether she'd like to align with real-life partner Andrade on TV - this was before he was released by WWE and made the jump to AEW - she answered in the affirmative.

"I’ve actually pitched that. I would be very much open to that. I’ve done a lot in my career, but nobody has seen me in an on-cam relationship, or in that light."

Charlotte has been accused of the boo boo face multiple times in her career, but she plays a very arrogant and domineering character on television. She is the "Queen"; she is the smug, obnoxious, above-it-all living legend of the women's division. She's won the most titles and wins far more often than not.

It's easy to conflate her portrayal of the character with the real-life disposition, but by Christ did she look thoroughly miserable at WrestleMania Backlash 2022 ahead of doing the job for Ronda Rousey.

She looked, bluntly, like she couldn't be arsed with those glazed-over eyes - as if she wasn't really up for the match, not in the mood, like she'd have probably won if only she were more motivated.
