• Ric Flair Reveals Why & How Much He Cried Before WrestleMania 35

During a recent interview with CBS Sports State Of Combat, two time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair talked about crying before WrestleMania 35 because his daughter, Charlotte Flair, main evented WrestleMania.

Below is what Flair said:

“I probably cried the whole week, I’ve been crying since it first came about. I’m so thankful to WWE, from Vince [McMahon] to Hunter [Triple H] and Stephanie [McMahon] and all the powers-that-be who put that together and taking that step forward with the woman.

For me, I’ve used the expression about passing the torch, but my daughter just took the torch from me years ago. She is so good but she is just getting going. She has only been in the business for 6 years, which is hard to believe. The thing about her that separates her from a lot of people is that she’s never satisfied with a performance.

I was really proud and I’m proud of WWE for taking that step forward because they deserve it.”
