Updated: Aug 14
In a recent interview with That's Magazine, former multiple time WWE Women's Champion Charlotte Flair spoke on what it was like growing up, being the daughter of the legendary "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Charlotte commented that it had it's advantages and disadvantages.
"Both. Being a generational kid is hard. I couldn't just, you know, show up one day as a 5'10" blonde and [have] the crowd view me however they wanted to. I already carried a last name they knew, so I from day one was compared to him. That's kind of what's driven me to where I am today. I want to be known as his daughter, but I also want to be known for my own work as well. So that's a mixed blessing,"
Charlotte spoke on her late brother Reid Flair, who wanted to become a professional wrestler as well and how she's carrying the dream of Reid.
"My brothers did. Both my brothers wanted to be professional wrestlers. I'm continuing my little brother's dream, that's why I started. And I definitely, I think, wanted to be where I am because I hated the pressure that they put on themselves and that they always wanted to live up [to], or just wanted to be like my dad and they couldn't, so I feel like I'm doing it for them as well,"
