With or without? Second generation wrestlers can be very tricky situations. Sometimes the younger version is a natural and sometimes they just do not have it for one reason or another. You can present someone however you want, but if the tools are not there, it just does not work. There are instances where it does, but now one of them is not interested in having the previous generation around any longer.
Charlotte, daughter of Ric Flair, was recently interviewed by the Hindustan Times (English newspaper based in India) and discussed sharing screen time with her father. Charlotte mentioned that she was not happy with her father being involved in their recent storyline involving Lacey Evans, which ultimately ended when Evans revealed that she was pregnant. She also said that she did not want anyone to think that she is selfish, but she wanted to be seen as her own person rather than Flair’s daughter. Flair has not been on WWE television since the story ended in February.
The two generations of Flair’s have been on television together on and off over the years, starting with their time together in NXT. They have been presented as adversaries and united, including with Flair managing Charlotte on multiple occasions. Nearly all of their associations have ended with Charlotte turning on Flair and telling him to go home and leave her alone.
They definitely had a history. Check out some of Charlotte and Flair’s time together in WWE:
Opinion: I can understand the thinking here, even if some of it seems to be in character. Charlotte has become a star on her own, but it has taken a lot of effort to get around the star power of someone like Flair. She was always going to be seen as someone who was playing second fiddle to her more famous father, but Charlotte has come a very long way on her own.
What do you think of Charlotte? Do you like her being paired with Flair in any way? Let us know in the comments below.
