For years now Charlotte has been telling fans that she’s genetically superior thanks to the Flair blood that runs through her veins, and she’s probably not wrong. Charlotte has been putting on exceptional performances in the ring ever since she debuted on the main roster, and she’s the current SmackDown Women’s Champion.

No one is more proud of her than her father WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, and Ric recently told The Daily Star that he thinks she’s already the greatest.

“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.”

Charlotte has mostly been working as a face since joining the SmackDown Live brand, but as we’ve all seen in the past, she’s a natural when it comes to playing a heel.

The SmackDown Women’s Champion knows how to get heat, and Ric wishes that WWE would turn her back to the dark side.

“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.”

  1. Considering how WWE regards Ric Flair it wouldn’t surprise me If he asked WWE to turn his daughter heel and it happened.
