Charlotte Flair has taken time off from WWE to get a much-needed surgery and possibly, star in a brand new TV Series. On July 25th, The Queen underwent the knife to fix an “implant issue”.
While speaking to with Ring Rust Radio, Charlotte’s father Ric Flair gave a medical update on The Queen’s current status. Flair said that his daughter is doing just fine and is waiting impatiently to make her return to the ring.
She’s doing great, she of course is climbing the walls. I just got a text from her about a half-hour ago, ‘Dad, I’m going crazy.’ She is so intense and so invested in our business, in the product, in her work ethic. This surgery was something that had to take place.
Flair said that Charlotte should have had the surgery earlier but she felt the need to complete her commitments to the company before taking time off. The Nature Boy said that the issue his daughter was facing was “bad” and had to be taken care of.
He also said that no one in WWE forced her to stay.
Personally, I wish she had done it earlier, but she would never ever leave without fulfilling what she felt she had to do. This was something that was bad. … Nobody made her stay, nobody did anything. She’s never going to ever be any less than 100 percent committed to the success of the company and her career and her involvement. She’s doing great, but she’s missing every second of it. She does not know how to turn it off. But that’s what makes her how great she is. She can have the greatest match in the world and she won’t rest on those laurels for one second.
Flair said that his daughter is not crazy like him but she does know how to spend her money and invest in her gimmick to look like a Champion, just like he did.
She’s a walking, talking highlight reel. And when she’s not working, she dresses immaculately, spends the money, she invests in her gimmick. She’s not crazy like me. She’s not wasting her money on cars and s–t like that, but when it comes to her appearance, she’s gonna look like a champion. You want a champion, she is a champion
Charlotte Flair did attract some attention from the makers of a new TV series, who want to cast The Queen on their show. Flair is also being seen as the next WWE Superstar who will attain mainstream stardom.
