• Charlotte Flair Reveals Why She Didn’t Care About Becoming A Wrestler At First

During a live interview with Lilian Garcia at Ace Comic Con, Charlotte Flair talked about not wanting to become a wrestler at first, joining NXT in 2012 & more.

Below are the highlights:

On if watching Ric Flair’s retirement match at WrestleMania 24 made her want to become a wrestler:

“Honestly, no. I always went to the shows and wanted to take my friends, or when I was in college bringing my volleyball team. But seeing the women during that time period, I played sports my whole life and was a tomboy, so I never saw myself as Stacy Kiebler, Trish Stratus, or Lita.

I always told myself that I was athletic and think I can do the moves, but I didn’t see myself as a diva so I don’t know if that’s kind of why I didn’t really care about it.”

On thinking about becoming a wrestler after The Four Horsemen’s WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2012:

“So literally 3 months after that I reported to NXT and, yeah, my dad was Ric Flair but I have no idea about the business. I didn’t really even understand what my dad meant to the business until I got there. It’s true though; I was like, why do these people not like me? What do they mean I’m just here because I’m Ric Flair’s daughter?

When Bayley talks about all of us being there at the right time…for me personally not having a wrestling background and getting to work with Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch and to show me the ropes and showing me all the passion that they brought in to being on the independent scene and wanting this since childhood and me being like, woah, what is this crazy world that I have missed out on that I fit into?

So, really, it was just not until July of 2012 that I was like I really like this. It was really like that.”

On main eventing WrestleMania 35:

“It was just something that I had said so much in interviews that it was really happening. Just even three years before that when I was saying it in interviews a couple of people would say that it’s really cool that you want to main event WrestleMania but man, you’re kind of arrogant, like that’ll never happen. Then when it did happen those people messaged me and said, man, you guys did it.

For me, heading into WrestleMania, it wasn’t so much the pressure of performing and being in the main event but it was like I want to make the girls happy in the locker room. I want to make them proud, and to have Bayley and Sasha Banks in the crowd watching and they were such instrumental parts in my career it was like I hope I make them proud if that makes any sense.”
