WWE champ Charlotte Flair talks dad’s influence, Royal Rumble (Video)

WASHINGTON — Monday night, on the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw, Charlotte Flair stood side-by-side with her father, Ric Flair, and went up against current WWE Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss.

Less than 24 hours later, in the WTOP studios, Flair discussed the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble, the women who have influenced her in the business and how she’s handled a tumultuous year involving her father’s health.

In a conversation with WTOP’s Chris Cichon and Jason Fraley, Flair also touched on her father’s influence in her career in terms of work ethic. She also talked about how he helps her power through long days and nights on the road.

And about those rumors of Ronda Rousey making an appearance in a WWE Ring soon? Flair has a message for the MMA legend!
