Charlotte Flair On Dealing With Her Brother’s Death


Charlotte Flair recently had an interview with Arm Drag Takedown podcast where she talked about her brother’s death, her divorce and more. Below are some highlights from her interview:

Fearing that people would make fun of her divorce:

“It really got to me when I first started in WWE that people would make fun of me being divorced. My dad has been divorced so many times. I don’t know why it bothered me. I don’t know whether it’s because I hate failing or I was embarrassed or comparing myself to my female peers — I don’t know. But to just get that off my chest, explain what I’ve been through or what I’ve learned, [how] I’ve come out a better person. I think that was the hardest part to share.”

Dealing with the death of her brother Reid:

“I don’t think I’ll ever put losing my little brother to rest, because I have so much guilt. Just the fact he has never seen me on the main roster is so hard — like I deal with it every, single day.”

Feeling the pressure of being Ric Flair’s daughter:

“When you walk out through that curtain, and people know you’re Ric Flair’s kid, you’re not going to get away from it — either you accept it or you don’t. Fans can think what they want. But if I was just another 5’10” blonde that was very athletic that stepped through, I don’t think I would have dealt with as much criticism as I did. I think the criticism and pressure is what’s gotten me to where I am today. It elevated my game.”
