Charlotte Flair opens up on her 6-month hiatus from WWE

Charlotte Flair has been booked as not only one of the top stars in the women’s division, but in all of WWE for the past few years.

Flair had been on hiatus for several months last year before making her surprise return at the TLC pay-per-view event in December by teaming up with Asuka to win the Women’s Tag Team Titles from Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.

The daughter of Ric Flair opened up on her hiatus from WWE during a recent interview with Yahoo Sports.

“It really just made me miss how much I love doing this,” Flair told Yahoo Sports. “Not that I don’t have a lot of hobbies, but now I can’t imagine my life without being an entertainer. I also got a mental break. I was able to leave the robe, the boots and the gear at work and go home and try to be a human, not always feeling like you’re on.”

Flair continued by noting that taking time away from WWE wasn’t easy as she got used to the hectic schedule.

“Part of me realized that the show could go on without me. As a performer that’s also hard. Seeing the show go on and noticing that everyone is replaceable. When you’re used to that grind, letting myself just decompress overall will be better for my mind, my body and my career long-term.”

Flair also talked about a potential match with her tag team partner/WWE Raw Women’s Champion Asuka, the Royal Rumble, and more. Check out the full interview here.
