Andrade and Charlotte Flair are dating and judging by their Instagram feeds they are very happy together. There are always going to be jitters when meeting your significant other’s father, especially if he’s The Nature Boy.
Digital Spy spoke to Andrade and he revealed that it was pretty nerve-wracking to meet Ric Flair after news of their relationship came out. It is all good now, but there was certainly some nervous energy upon first meeting the 16x World Champion.
“When we first met I was seriously so, so nervous. Now I’m so happy. I love Ric Flair. He’s a great person with me, he talks, texts me, sometimes we have dinner. He’s great with me now. When we first started [dating] I asked Charlotte, ‘Please don’t say nothing to your dad’, and she said, ‘No it’s my dad, he won’t care.'”
“I have so much respect for her dad and professional respect for what he did in this business, he’s a legend.”
Andrade hasn’t done much in recent weeks, but with the WWE Draft coming up soon you never know what kind of spotlight they might shine on the former NXT Champion.
It will also be interesting to see if WWE keeps Charlotte Flair and Andrade on the same brand.
