Many fans are simply tired of Charlotte Flair’s current booking in WWE. She remains criticized for receiving too many title shots. Several fans felt more deserving competitors should have gotten. In spite of all the outrage, WWE is set on pushing Flair to the moon and that is unlikely to stop anytime soon.
On last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, a fan attacked Seth Rollins, which led to a lot of controversy. Seth Rollins was taken by surprise, so he couldn’t retaliate in time but ultimately held the fan in a front facelock. He held it just in time for security to take the fan away.
While speaking on his podcast, Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED, Ric Flair discussed Seth Rollins being taken down by the fan. Ric Flair stated that his daughter Charlotte wouldn’t have been taken down like Rollins, had she been in the same situation.
“Second-generation kids are taught to be tough. Roman Reigns, The Usos, that’s why I’m such a fan of kids that had to really be tough to just survive in life. If you’ve been a real athlete and really competed at a top-level, you’re tough. You’re mentally tough. You’re physically tough. You are honed and trained to be — I mean, if that same thing had happened to Ashley, hypothetically, I don’t know if that guy could have taken Ashley down. She’s tough, man. You don’t think Tamina’s tough, or Nia Jax, or, Nattie Neidhart, are you kidding me? They come up in families where you had to be tough.”
Ric Flair’s statement will certainly lead to a lot of outrage from fans for even trying to compare Seh Rollins and Charlotte Flair. Regardless, we hope such incidents never happen again in WWE.
