Charlotte Talks About Her Divorce, Death of Her Brother, Feeling The Pressure to Elevate Her Game

Charlotte spoke with Arm Drag Takedown with Huffpost about a number of wrestling topics. Here are some Highlights:

Talking about her divorce in her book, Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte:

"It really got to me when I first started in WWE that people would make fun of me being divorced. My dad has been divorced so many times. I don't know why it bothered me. I don't know whether it's because I hate failing or I was embarrassed or comparing myself to my female peers — I don't know. But to just get that off my chest, explain what I've been through or what I've learned, [how] I've come out a better person. I think that was the hardest part to share."

The death of her brother, Reid:

"I don't think I'll ever put losing my little brother to rest, because I have so much guilt. Just the fact he has never seen me on the main roster is so hard — like I deal with it every, single day."

Feeling the pressure to elevate her game, because she was Ric Flair's daughter:

"When you walk out through that curtain, and people know you're Ric Flair's kid, you're not going to get away from it — either you accept it or you don't. Fans can think what they want. But if I was just another 5'10" blonde that was very athletic that stepped through, I don't think I would have dealt with as much criticism as I did. I think the criticism and pressure is what's gotten me to where I am today. It elevated my game."
