Charlotte Talk Ric Flair’s Shadow, Creating Her Own Legacy, Her Figure Eight Submission


– WWE Divas Champion Charlotte recently spoke with The Reno Gazette-Journal to promote her November 20th Wizard World Reno appearance with Dean Ambrose. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

The shadow and legacy of her dad Ric Flair:

“If I didn’t acknowledge the fact that my father is Ric Flair, people will ask why. If I do, well, either way someone is going be negative because of what my dad has meant to the industry, and I take that (legacy) very seriously.”

“I feel the pressure to continue to get better to fulfill my own legacy but also continue my dad’s. I want to make an impact in the industry like my father did but in my own way, whether it be refining the (Divas) division or reinventing a major pay per view.”

Her Figure Eight submission:

“My coach Sarah (Del Rey) and a couple other people in the ring were like, ‘Oh, you can bridge out of that, that’s cool!’ Then (NXT wrestler) Simon Gotch said, ‘You should call it the Figure 8 because it’s twice as good as your dad’s.'”
