WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair wants to see his daughter Charlotte take a hiatus from the WWE in order to finally pursue other projects which she has been offered.
Whilst appearing on The Wrestling Inc Daily Podcast, Flair talked about Charlotte’s future in the company. The WWE legend revealed that Charlotte has received an offer to star in a TV series and the people who produce the series have been actively pursuing her for it for quite some time.
Flair said that he assumed Charlotte will work SummerSlam but after that wants her to take a break from the WWE
“I’m actually hoping that when she finishes her commitments up at SummerSlam or whenever it is – I have no idea when. I know she has a TV series looking at her and she’s got fitness people wanting to do work with her. I hope that she takes as long as she wants off so that all these people that can fill her shoes and do that every night have the opportunity and God bless that thought.” he said.
“I’m saying that I would assume that she’s gonna do SummerSlam. I’m saying that I hope she goes to the company because she’s been actively pursued for a series. I can’t give any more than that. And I just hope she just goes and says, ‘Hey, I wanna take some time off.’ Even though the WWE appreciates me, and you can write down my name every day, the fans don’t seem to get it.” he continued.
On this past Monday’s edition of WWE RAW, Flair was viciously assaulted by Nia Jax resulting in a storyline injury. This was the WWE’s way of writing Flair out of TV for a period of time. Reports suggest Flair could be out until Summerslam, whilst some say she could be out until next years Royal Rumble or at the very least Survivor Series.
Charlotte Flair is without a doubt one of the most prolific female superstars of the last decade. The 34-year-old is a former five-time WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion, four-time RAW women’s champion, two-time NXT women’s champion and one-time Divas Champion. She defeated WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus in a marquee match-up at the Summerslam 2019 event and won the women’s Royal Rumble earlier this year. Her bout against Becky Lynch won ‘Match of the Year’ at the WWE Year-End Awards in 2018.
