Ric Flair has been the most active in observing the wrestling business lately. He likes to give his opinion on certain topics every now and then. However, he did not get to witness the return of his daughter, Charlotte Flair on last week’s SmackDown despite being backstage for the show.

Charlotte Flair made her shocking return to WWE on the last SmackDown of 2022. The Queen immediately targeted Ronda Rousey, the same person who took her out of action upon her return persuading her to an impromptu title match. Flair rolled up an exhausted Rousey and won her 14th WWE Women’s championship.

The Queen’s big comeback moment was, however, not witnessed by her father Ric Flair. The Nature Boy was backstage on SmackDown and left the show early, completely unaware that Charlotte Flair was making her return that night. He spoke about this on his To Be The Man podcast. 

“I was in the building and left and didn’t know it. It was the first time in so many years that nobody knew. I was in the building. I went and saw Roman and John and it was like the greatest time. I mean, I just really felt like part of the family again, man. I just had a ball. But I didn’t even know. I left and went to American Social. Then I got word that she was there. Of course I had had a couple of drinks with the hockey players.


The hockey players like to drink, so I wasn’t gonna go back to the building. But I mean, I watched it and they put on every TV for me. It was amazing. That was really old school kayfabe. I’m thinking to myself how cool that was because I don’t remember that happening for a long time when there wasn’t even an inkling of something like that. Then I’m reading in one of those wrestling things that next thing is Bianca Belair is gonna lose the belt to Becky Lynch, and Becky Lynch is gonna wrestle Rhea Ripley, and it just goes on and on. If any of that is true, I hope they don’t beat Bianca, but if they do, I mean, it doesn’t make any difference.

It just goes to show you if they really have their mindset on doing something and keep it on the QT, they can do it. I think personally it’s so much better for wrestling when they can do stuff like that and everybody can keep their mouth shut because God only knows that’s why she wouldn’t tell me. She knows I got a big mouth and she knows I would tell you.”

Charlotte Flair’s return and title win earned a mixed reaction from the WWE Universe. Her title win could potentially lead to a program with Ronda Rousey, possibly a rematch for the SmackDown Women’s championship.
