She may not fly jets or ride limousines, but Charlotte — daughter of 16-time World Champion Ric Flair — may be destined for greatness. A latecomer to the industry her father helped revolutionize, Charlotte has kickstarted her entrance into her father’s profession and made a name for herself in NXT in very short order.
Displaying a level of athleticism that few divas in history can match, Charlotte has captured the attention of the NXT Universe in short order. With her father watching on, Charlotte defeated Natalya at NXT Takeover to win an eight-Diva tournament and become the new NXT Women’s Champion! More?

Forget that she’s Ric Flair’s daughter for a minute. Charlotte captured the NXT Women’s Championship because she has all the tools to succeed in sports-entertainment, not because her pop is a 16-time World Champion.
She boasts a brilliant style in the ring, ranging from athletic moonsaults to suffocating submissions that utilize her strong lower body. She moves around the squared circle with the athleticism of a gymnast. She flips momentum in an instant by planting her opponents to the mat with her signature Natural Selection.
Charlotte not only knows she’s talented — she has her father’s swagger — but she’s also committed to improving and has a “first one there, last one to leave” mentality toward training. That attitude worked wonders in 2014, with Charlotte growing seemingly overnight from a sidekick with The BFFs to a star and champion.
Yes, she’s a second-generation talent, but Charlotte will become one of the best Divas ever to step into the ring because she wants to prove she has more than a famous last name. — JEFF LABOON
