Earlier this week it was reported that Charlotte Flair would be taking time away from WWE, and that she would be undergoing some form of surgery.
It isn’t clear when she’s back, but her father Ric Flair might have just revealed one of the things she’ll be doing during her time away.
Speaking on Wrestling Inc’s podcast, Ric revealed Charlotte has been approached by a TV company with the intention of having her star in some kind of series. There was talk in 2019 that Charlotte was keen on making a reality show alongside soon-to-be husband, Andrade.
“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.”
Flair was then asked whether Charlotte would be taking time off after SummerSlam.
“No, no, no. 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.
“Hey, somebody else come along and see what you got. To all the people I’m holding back, have at it. I’m serious – if I were her then I would say that. I would say, ‘Stick it.’ I’m so mad about that – one mark after another, ‘We’re tired of seeing her.’ Good, watch her on TV in another event. She’s a millionaire – she can do what she wants to do. And she’s a millionaire because of the company; there you go.”
Ric was also quick to support the suggestion that his daughter was WWE’s biggest active star up until her decision to take time away.
“I know she’s the biggest star, but she’s the best wrestler too! You know what I mean? I swear to God, it makes me so damn mad. These people say, ‘Oh, you’re holding back…’ Okay. Well, you know what? The only way to find out who we’re holding back as turn it over to them. I’ll give you the list of names they keep running by me that the media keeps bringing up – give it to them. Let’s see them stick a moonsault every night. Let’s see them do a corkscrew moonsault off the top rope onto five people. Give them a great match – not a good match – every time out. Come on, name the five women that could do that. Name the two. I just named the one.”
