One half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, Charlotte Flair, has told of how she’s tired of being known as the daughter of ‘The Nature Boy.’
On the January 4 Legends Night edition of Monday Night Raw, Charlotte Flair and Asuka were cost a match against Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans when Ric Flair shockingly tripped his daughter and then reluctantly got romantic with Evans at ringside.
Fuming from her father’s actions, ‘The Queen’ – who has officially entered the Women’s Royal Rumble Match on January 31 – appeared alongside her father on Raw Talk and forced open the already gaping fissure in their relationship with a shocking statement.
After ‘Naitch’ left the set following his daughter’s refusal to accept his apology, Charlotte spoke to Charly Caruso about her father and began to cut the ties that bound them:
“I know he was trying to help, he would do anything for me. That said, I didn’t need his help. I never lost. I get that he’s funny and the dirtiest player in the game. I get it. That said, I just want him to stay there and be proud of me. I don’t need his help. It boils down to the fact that I’m just frustrated that I lost. I’m a sore loser.
A part of me feels bad because I do get to cherish these moments with him. I mean, who gets to walk down to the ring with their dad? At the same time all I can think about is, before I main evented WrestleMania, ESPN goes, “Becky Lynch, Royal Rumble winner. Ronda Rousey, RAW Women’s Champion, and Charlotte Flair, Ric Flair’s daughter. That’s how they labeled me going into the Mania main event. These little things add up and tonight I felt like we had the win and my dad felt it was needed to help.”
With Ric Flair’s interference and Charlotte becoming jaded with being known as such, WWE have carefully begun to sew the seeds of a slow burning heel turn as Flair is expected to turn on Asuka prior to WrestleMania in order to set-up a bout for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship.
