Charlotte Flair Carving Her Own WWE Path

on

She’’s a superstar in her own right, a multi-time WWE champion and currently a member of the Smackdown brand that will be in Ottawa at Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday night.

While she grew up getting to know her dad’s wrestling pals:

To me, it was just my dad’s job and I liked taking my volleyball team to his matches,” Flair said. “You know what’s crazy to me … it’s so surreal that I do this. I would have never thought in high school or college that I’d be where I am today. It was destiny, I guess.

Fans hating her at first:

“When I debuted on the main roster, people just hated me. They were booing me. Social media got to me a bit. They were like, ‘She’s just there because she’s Ric Flair’s daughter.’ I was like, ‘Why doesn’t anybody like me?’ It really got to me. I had to make an executive decision and commit to being what people thought I was. If they think I’m going to be that way, act that way. So it was about committing to being, ‘Yeah, I’m Ric Flair’s daughter, yeah the dirtiest player in the game, yeah I’m entitled, yeah I got here without having to do anything.’ Now I just know how to turn up. It was more about understanding you’re just playing a role.”

Working as a face on SmackDown:

“Since I am a babyface now, I am going to put all my energy into being the best babyface ever. My comfort zone and where I feel most natural is being a heel. My character could stay the same and people like my character versus disliking it. It’s more me trying to figure out how that works and staying true to my character regardless of what side I’m on. I do feel more comfortable as a heel, but I’m taking the babyface challenge on as much as I can.”
