Five characteristics Charlotte shares with Ric Flair
Charlotte has done plenty of her own, but having Ric Flair as her father has helped along the way.
We have all heard the saying, like father, like daughter. This rings true for the WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte and her father, the legendary Ric Flair. From the very beginning fans knew the second generation diva would be something special. Touting herself as genetically superior, she is well known for her time in NXT and being a part of the revolutionary Four Horsewomen. This can be derived from the stable her father was in years prior, the Four Horsemen.
While Charlotte has indeed been successful in her WWE career, she can thank her father for passing on his traits to her. It certainly has helped her out. Her ring work is similar to her dad; you see shades of Flair in what she does. You see it when she performs the knee drops and her unique Figure Eight finisher, which pays homage to her famous father. What else resonates with her?
5. Promo work
Just like her father, Charlotte has a mean streak, and it isn’t more evident than when she grabs a microphone. While Charlotte isn’t the best at promos, since her heel turn it has been better. While Flair has some iconic phrases, Charlotte doesn’t have one just yet (‘If you’re gonna do it, do it with Flair’ was a start). But regardless, practice does make perfect and while she may not surpass her father on the mic, she’s doing just fine right now.
