WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair knows what it takes to succeed in professional wrestling.
So when he discusses the best performers inside of the ring, fans seem to listen. However, it should come as no surprise that he has nothing but praise for his daughter, Ashley, who goes by the ring name Charlotte Flair.
During a recent interview with Daily Star, the 16-time world champion explained why his daughter is already the greatest “by far.”
“She (Charlotte) already is the greatest, by far. I don’t know who to compare her to. That’s just my opinion and I’m biased but I’m also a guy that’s qualified to make that remark so let’s say she’s not my daughter and I was the father of another girl I would say to the other girl you better push if you want to be like her. And I have tremendous respect. I think Sasha Banks is off the hook in terms of ability. What separates Ashley is her size and her athletic ability. Sasha Banks is every bit of a performer that Ashley is, make no mistake. As are a couple of the other girls – Natalya is fantastic. They’re all good. There’s a fine line between good and great and I just look at her and I’ve known them all.”
And while Flair is proud of everything his daughter has already accomplished, he has an idea of how she can enhance her character — and everyone around her.
“I wish they would use her on the other side. I like her when she’s bad. She’s really good at enhancing other people’s work. As a heel she’s really good at that, that’s art in itself.”
Do you think Charlotte should return to the heel role? Sound off in the comments section below.
