History

Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr an American professional wrestler and former personal trainer currently signed to WWE, performing on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Charlotte Flair. She is a second-generation wrestler in her family. Her father, Ric Flair, is known as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.

Flair is an eight-time Women's World Champion in WWE, which is recognized by the company as being the record. Her accomplishments include being a former (and final) Divas Champion, the first and a record-tying four-time Raw Women's Champion and a record three-time SmackDown Women's Champion. Prior to joining the main roster, she had a reign as NXT Women's Champion. She is the first and only wrestler to hold all four championships in WWE as well as the longest-reigning SmackDown Women's Champion in WWE history.

WWE Feuds 

Charlotte made her debut on NXT last summer as a babyface; defeating Bayley in her debut match. She would later team with Bayley in a tag team match against main roster Divas Alicia Fox and Aksana, and defended Bayley from being bullied by the Beautiful Fierce Females (Summer Rae and Sasha Banks). Despite this, however, Charlotte seemed to be annoyed with Bayley's upbeat attitude and began displaying a heel persona. A week later, Charlotte teamed with Bayley in a tag team match against the BFFs. During the match, the evil Charlotte attacked Bayley, allowing Sasha to pin her for the victory and officially cementing Charlotte as a heel. After the match ended, Charlotte became the third member of the BFFs. With Summer now on the main roster, Charlotte became the lead villainess on NXT, with Sasha serving as a sidekick of sorts. Charlotte's babyface run would see her called up to the main roster in the summer of 2015, where she captured the Divas Championship against Nikki Bella at Night of Champions. She engaged in a feud with Paige after her heel turn a night later on Raw, which led to Charlotte successfully defending her title against Paige at Survivor Series. After months as a babyface, Charlotte began assuming her role as a heel when she cheated to defeat her PCB partner Becky Lynch; faking an injury and a distraction by Ric Flair. Three nights later on SmackDown, Charlotte attacked Brie Bella while Becky had Brie in the Dis-Arm-Her, doing so after Brie accidentally struck her. The involvement caused Becky to lose via disqualification. Charlotte defeated Paige to retain Divas Championship at TLC, doing so by sending Paige head-first into an exposed turnbuckle that was originally undone by Ric Flair.

On the January 4, 2016 episode of Raw, the evil Charlotte attacked Becky from behind after she lost to her in a non-title match despite her father's interference, cementing her as a villainess once again. Reanimating her rivalry with Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, both women went on to compete in two matches to determine the number one contender for Charlotte's WWE Divas Championship at WrestleMania 32,with the first bout ending as a no contest, after a double pin occurred, and the second as well, after both Banks and Lynch were attacked by Charlotte. As a result, a triple threat match between Banks, Lynch and Charlotte for the Divas Championship was announced for WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 35 

WrestleMania 35 had the first-ever female main event match in WrestleMania history. At the pay-per-view event, Flair lost her championship in a Winner takes all for both her SmackDown and Ronda Rousey's Raw Women's Championships when Lynch pinned Rousey to win both titles.

Ric Flair's Legacy 

Wrestling fans all are aware of the bond between Ric Flair and his daughter. He has stated many times how proud he is when he witnesses the excellent work and success of his beautiful daughter. Charlotte has also said how proud she is of the legacy that her father has created in the professional wrestling industry. However, one fact that may not be surprising is that Charlotte and Ric Flair were hardly together when she was young. This is not shocking since Ric was in the prime of his career, traveling around the world for WCW and WWE, winning championships and living a jet-setting lifestyle. This made it very difficult for him to get the opportunity to spend a lot of time with his daughter. Charlotte actually referred to this fact in a promo during a TV segment with her father in 2016. Charlotte's mother and Ric eventually got divorced, driving them even further apart. However, the two seem to have kept a pretty close relationship over the years despite his travel schedule and the divorce.
