Charlotte Flair on if She Thinks She’s Out of Ric Flair’s Shadow


Former WWE Monday Night RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair recently did an interview with the Pensacola News Journal to talk about a variety of topics. During the interview “The Queen” talked about what it was like to grow up as the daughter of “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and being a babyface on SmackDown Live. You can check out the highlights here:

What it’s like growing up as Ric Flair’s daughter:

“Growing up with a famous father, and one who mastered his craft, it’s one of those things where do you really want to be in the same profession?” she said. “I can’t imagine the pressure on, say, Michael Jordan’s kids. But for me, I think it’s molded me into the character that I am today. I think I definitely work out of my father’s shadow, but it was hard in the beginning. But I would never change my last name, and I couldn’t be more proud to carry on his legacy.”

Being on SmackDown Live as a babyface:

“This is a new transition for me, but I will take it as a challenge to be the best babyface I can be. Obviously, my comfort level with my size, my demeanor and my presence, and where I had elevated myself to, is definitely as a heel. But I’m ready to see what I can do as a babyface!”
