Charlotte Flair is the daughter of the legendary Ric Flair, and she’s managed to carve out her own legacy in the professional wrestling business over the last few years. Charlotte is athletically gifted that’s for sure, and her superior genetics have helped her capture the Raw Women’s Championship four times in her career, and she’s also managed to win the Divas Championship, and the NXT Women’s Championship.

It’s pretty much impossible for Charlotte to go through her career without being compared to her famous father, and during a recent interview with That’s Magazine she said her father’s legacy is both a blessing and a curse.

“Both. Being a generational kid is hard. I couldn’t just, you know, show up one day as a 5’10” blonde and [have] the crowd view me however they wanted to. I already carried a last name they knew, so I from day one was compared to him. That’s kind of what’s driven me to where I am today. I want to be known as his daughter, but I also want to be known for my own work as well. So that’s a mixed blessing.”

There’s no denying that the game has changed over the last few years when it comes to women’s wrestling, and Charlotte has played a big role in the Women’s Revolution. In regards to her own legacy, the former Raw Women’s Champion noted that she wants to be remembered as someone who helped change the landscape for women.

“That I helped change the landscape for women in the company… That we are given just as important storylines and that we are the focus as well, even from a brand standpoint. When you see that the WWE is coming to China, I want the women to be just as important as the male superstars that are coming here. That we are an attraction.”
