Charlotte Flair has not wrestled since her loss to Ronda Rousey at the 2022 WWE Wrestlemania Backash PLE in May. Charlotte pulled out of a Big Event NY appearance which led to speculation about her status.
During his podcast, Ric Flair spoke with Conrad Thompson about Charlotte’s hiatus…
Ric: “To be very honest, I have no idea. She keeps everything to herself. I know she’s talking to the company, but I don’t know any more than that. If I did, I couldn’t tell you anyway. She doesn’t trust me to tell me anything because I can’t keep my mouth shut.”
Conrad: “Well, a lot of fans I know created a little bit of chatter because I guess there was an appearance she had that was canceled. And I know Andrade said recently that she had some personal stuff that she was working on. You and I know that physically, she’s fine. Emotionally, she’s fine. It’s her business to share. But I guess what I wanted to sort of set the record straight on [is] there’s nothing wrong with Charlotte Flair. She’s just fine.”
Ric: “She is probably in the best shape of her life. I think it’s probably a mutual decision between her and the company as to when she comes back. I would assume under the perfect circumstance. She’s the best wrestler, but she’s the greatest female wrestler of all time. Like I said before, to have two legit world class athletes, you could write the story itself. NCAA track star. Strength, coordination, athleticism, Bianca Belair, Charlotte Flair. It’s a main event in itself…In my opinion, that’s the match.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
