Charlotte Flair had an iconic entrance prior to her WrestleMania 35 match last year.
Flair main evented “The Show Of Shows” in the first-ever women’s match to do so at a WrestleMania. Flair put her SmackDown Live Women’s Title up for grabs in a Triple Threat match involving RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey, whose title was also on the line, and Becky Lynch. Flair made her entrance into the WrestleMania main event on a helicopter.
It was the exact same entrance her father, two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair, made at The Great American Bash in 1985. Speaking in an interview with Sports Illustrated, Flair revealed the entrance actually wasn’t even her idea, and she didn’t find out about it until the final go-home show before WrestleMania.
“That was definitely not my idea,” Flair said, laughing. “Do you think I actually went to the boss and asked for a helicopter? I didn’t even know about the entrance until our last go-home show before ‘Mania.
“They were like, ‘Hey, we have this idea. What do you think?’ And I was like, ‘That is incredible.’ With so many playbacks to my dad, it was very cool.”
Flair actually went on to lose her title in the historic match after Lynch pinned Rousey to capture both belts. However, it was a historic entrance, and a great nod to her father, nonetheless.
