Charlotte Talks Not Allowing Ric Flair to Outshine Her
WZ Radio regular Alfred Konuwa recently spoke with Charlotte for Forbes.com, and below is what the WWE Divas Champ had to say about not allowing her father Ric Flair to outshine her:
For one, he’s my parent in crime, that’s what I labeled him as, but when I heard they were going to pair him with me, I really kind of got nervous.
I looked at my dad as one of the greatest talkers of all time, and I was like ‘oh no they’re putting with him, and I need a mouthpiece,’ and obviously I have to share the stage every week with, in my eyes, the greatest of all time. People are probably like ‘she’s just thinking [she’s] walking out there with [her] dad.’
At work, I don’t see dad, I see him as my manager and he’s my co-worker. I don’t want him to steal my spotlight, so it really forced me to get deep and own this heel turn that has really just given me life on the main roster and separated me from the Divas Revolution when I first started as just kind of a babyface, Ric’s daughter. I really took it as a challenge, and wanted to get better in all aspects and I’ve always felt more comfortable being a heel to begin with.
