Booker T Believes Top WWE Star Will Leave The Company In The Next Five Years

Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch on WWE SmackDown

Booker T predicts that one of WWE’s top stars will leave pro wrestling behind within the next five years.

Charlotte Flair had a meteoric rise in the company as one of NXT’s ‘Four Horsewomen’ alongside Becky Lynch, Bayley, and Sasha Banks – now NJPW’s Mercedes Mone.

The four women helped spearhead the Women’s Revolution in the company when they moved to the main roster in 2015. Since then, Flair has arguably seen the most success of the group, having captured the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships a combined total of 14 times.

She also joined Lynch and Ronda Rousey as the first women to main event WrestleMania at the 35th edition of the annual spectacular.

Booker T believes WWE will be in Charlotte Flair’s “rearview mirror” within five years

On the latest edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T discussed Flair’s success, noting that she’s fully aware she’s “the star of the show.”

“She’s the star of the show. She knows it. Everybody else knows it. Fall in line. It’s the best thing going today. You don’t have to like it, but you better learn to love it … It’s only fitting.”

He also thinks she has a lot to do outside of the world of pro wrestling, and expects to see her move on within five years, saying she can do “whatever she wants.”

“She’s the best at what she does, man. Wrestling is literally going to be something in her rearview mirror in the next five years, just because there’s so much more out there for her right now. And I think she knows that, too. I think she wants more.

“This wrestling thing for Charlotte Flair has been a pit stop [or] a bump in the road. She got the world in the palm of her hand. She could do whatever she wants.”

Flair is currently chasing her 15th Women’s Title, having laid down a challenge to Asuka for the new Women’s Championship just after the Empress of Tomorrow was presented with the title belt.
