WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair was a recent guest on The TODAY Show ahead of this weekend’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. She shared her experience watching her father’s last match, and being competitive in the gym with her husband, Andrade El Idolo.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
Her feelings watching Ric Flair’s final match: “That was a long day. Honestly, I was a little jealous because I was like, ‘Oh, I want to be a part of this.’ I’ve shared the ring with my dad, but not in that capacity. But then again, my husband having the opportunity to be beside him, at the same time, I’m like, ‘Man, I wish my little brother could see this.’ Then my husband is a third-generation wrestler. It was awesome. Picture-perfect. But I mean my dad could have maybe just managed my husband, but it worked out.”
Her interactions with Andrade throughout their careers: “We’re competitive in the gym. But I help him with certain things, and he helps me with certain things, so it’s like the best of both worlds. He’s a luchador from Mexico, so the wrestling style is much different, where I’m all about performance and showmanship and the glamour of it. So we play off of each other really well.”
