It can be frustrating to always face situations where you are compared to someone else. For Charlotte Flair, there are worse people she could be compared to other than her famous father.
BT Sports recently spoke to Charlotte Flair when her Nature Boy Father came up. She wears robes and woos just like her dad, but she said her father couldn’t ever “hold a candle” to her athleticism. There are a lot of things she was able to learn from having Ric Flair as a father and Charlotte exemplifies them to the best of her ability.
“[Like him] I wear a robe but my dad couldn’t hold a candle to my athleticism and I would say that to his face. But naturally I carry his mannerisms without even thinking about it. I’ve only been wrestling for seven years and it just comes naturally but what I took from my dad is his professionalism, him being true to who he really is. What I mean by professionalism is his quote ‘you dress for the job you want, not the one you have’. He’s always in a suit, his costumes always went above and beyond, his showmanship and charisma – he’s a star. That’s what I really took from my dad.”
Charlotte Flair closed out 2019 by announcing that she is the first entrant in the 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble match. Ric Flair wrapped up the decade by falling on the ice a couple of times. The Nature Boy is loving life and really enjoys seeing his daughter follow in his footsteps as she carries on the name he helped build.
