Charlotte Talks Wrestling in the Same Stadium that Ric Flair Retired, Important Advice from Ric

Charlotte-Ric Flair

Former WWE RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte was recently interviewed by Sky Sports. You can check out some highlights from their conversation here:

On making her own Wrestlemania Moments:

“To know there is a possibility I will be wrestling at the same stadium at a Wrestlemania where my dad had his last just blows my mind – it’s crazy. My dad was my hero and I loved watching him but it wasn’t until I got into wrestling that I realised how important he was to the industry. My whole family watched that match with Shawn and to see and hear over 70,000 people chanting: ‘Thank you, Ric’ and to see him living out his dream and what he dedicated his life to was very special. I look at the photos and wish I could go back to that moment.”

On Ric Flair walking out with her during the beginning of her main roster debut:

“He drove me to get better night after night. He is my dad but in the environment that I work in he is a two-time Hall of Famer and one of the greatest of all time. To know I had to walk out with him time after time and be the focus and forge my place on the roster was a challenge. I wanted it to happen, though, so it pushed me harder. The most important piece of advice he ever gave me was that when you walk through the curtain you have to believe in yourself or the fans will see straight through you.”
