Charlotte Flair’s booking in WWE is always a sore subject for many fans, who are fed up with seeing her win titles all the time. That being said, no one can deny just how talented Flair is in the ring. John Cena also has a high opinion of Flair and it appears he will personally congratulate her if she breaks her father’s record.

Charlotte Flair returned to WWE television last year and defeated Ronda Rousey to become the Smackdown Women’s Champion. This marked her 14th run as a women’s champion.

When John Cena tied Ric Flair’s record of 16 World Title reigns in 2017, many believed that John Cena was going to be the one who would end up breaking the record by having 17 World Title reigns recognized by WWE.

However, that s highly unlikely to ever happen now. While speaking on Josh Horowitz’s ‘Happy Sad Confused’ podcast, John Cena was asked to name his favourite female wrestler. In the discussion, Cena stated that he will personally congratulate Charlotte Flair if she breaks her father’s record.


“Man, there’s so many good ones now (female wrestlers). Like I said, there’s so many good ones (Cena said after someone in the audience shouted Rhea Ripley’s name). I do like the legacy that Charlotte (Flair) is creating for herself.

I know Ric Flair had said something about if she were to win a 17th championship, we should be there, both to shake her hand and I got to see Ric recently and tell him that if that happens, we will both be there because I think that’s tremendous.

I’m not shortchanging anybody else but just because I know and love Ric and I admire what Charlotte’s done, that’s my connection to that moment so that’s why I gotta say her.

Ric Flair even claimed that he and John Cena congratulating Charlotte Flair on breaking their record would get a 2.3 rating as well. Charlotte Flair’s title reigns also have a very impressive stat connected to them. Only time will tell whether Charlotte Flair will be able to surpass her father.

What do you think of what John Cena said? Do you think Charlotte Flair will surpass her father’s record? Sound off in the comments!
