As the reigning WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair took some time to chat with Jetset Magazine about her career thus far. Charlotte Flair attributes her success in the wrestling industry to her determination to carry on the family history begun by her father, Ric Flair, while also forging her own path.
“Extending my father’s legacy while building my own has been paramount to my success,” Charlotte said. “I never dreamed about being a sports entertainer when I was growing up, but when I made the decision in 2012, it changed my life. The ring is like home to me. Having the opportunity to go out every night and perform for an audience is the greatest feeling.”
Charlotte also discussed the importance of being a role model for followers of both genders. She said how much it meant to her to be an inspiration to her younger supporters.
“Being a role model for that little girl or little boy sitting in the front row means the world to me,” Charlotte said. “I truly get the best of both worlds.”
Charlotte then went on to talk about how she believes she has evolved over the last eight months, both on and off-screen. Even though she’s accomplished a great deal in her work, she isn’t satisfied and wants to continue to learn and improve.
“Over the past eight months, I feel I have grown greatly both professionally and personally,” Charlotte said. “I think that my evolution in those ways has translated into on-camera success. I have learned so much since my 2015 debut on Monday Night Raw. I’ve been fortunate to be able to travel the world and be a part of so many ‘firsts’ for the women of WWE.
“Whether it’s being a part of the first Women’s main event of WrestleMania, Raw or Smackdown, or wrestling in the first Women’s Hell In a Cell Match. I intend to continue to grow as a performer and I feel there is still so much left to be done. I didn’t come this far to come this far!”
