Charlotte Flair Reveals Her Father’s Best Advice for Her, Explains Why They Wrote a Book Together

In Touch Weekly recently interviewed Charlotte Flair on the book she co-wrote with her father, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte. Below are some highlights.

Charlotte on her father’s best advice for her: “To go to bed every night knowing who you are and I guess that could be professional as well, but professionally the best advice was, ‘When you go through that curtain, you have to know exactly who you are as a character and believe in yourself, because if you don’t the fans won’t buy it from the second you walk through that curtain.'”

Charlotte on getting involved with the business and realizing the pressure: “It was my little brother’s dream, but once I became involved, that’s when I realized the pressure. I had no idea what I was stepping into or getting myself into when I started — but once I got into the WWE and started in Tampa, then that’s when I realized, ‘Oh wow. There’s a lot of pressure that comes with this.’ Even though Triple H and my dad both said, ‘It’s going to be hard, it’s a generational effort,’ I didn’t really understand how hard it was going to be.”

Charlotte on the idea of her and her dad writing a book: “The idea behind my dad and I doing a book together was because he did a book early 2000 To Be the Man and a couple years later a lot had happened professionally and personally in his life — from his retirement in 2008 with Sean Michaels and personally, from divorce to my brother [Reid] passing away and me starting at in WWE’S developmental program, and then the main roster, so when they came to my dad to do another book they said, ‘Not only do you have so much to share but your legacy is being continued now through a different role for you in the company’ — and that was me.”
