WWE Women’s Champ, Charlotte Flair: What it Takes to be the Best – Episode 232

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

My guest on this episode of the #RenegadeRadioPodcast is the current WWE Smackdown Live Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair. Her father is legendary WWE Hall of Famer, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, considered by most as the greatest pro wrestler of all time.

As a kid Charlotte was a multi sport athlete. She developed the competitive drive, work ethic and champions mindset that she displays in and out of the ring today. Although she initially had no intentions of becoming a pro wrestler she is now proudly carrying on the family legacy. Charlotte has followed in her father’s footsteps while blazing her own trail to the top of women’s wrestling.

Whether you’re a wrestling fan, or just someone who wants to learn what it takes to be the best, there’s something in this episode for everyone.
