It appears that Charlotte Flair is gaining interest outside of the WWE bubble as she has been received a television offer.
Her father, Ric Flair, shared the news while making an appearance on The Wrestling Inc Daily podcast. Since breaking into the business, she has progressed towards being WWE’s top star in the women’s division.
“I’m actually hoping that when she finishes her commitments up at SummerSlam or whenever it is – I have no idea when. I know she has a TV series looking at her and she’s got fitness people wanting to do work with her,” said Flair. “I hope that she takes as long as she wants off so that all these people that can fill her shoes and do that every night have the opportunity and God bless that thought.”
Flair was asked about the timeline of SummerSlam and whether she will be taking time off from the event.
“No, I’m saying that I would assume that she’s gonna do SummerSlam. I’m saying that I hope she goes to the company because she’s been actively pursued for a series. I can’t give any more than that. And I just hope she just goes and says, ‘Hey, I wanna take some time off.’ Even though the WWE appreciates me, and you can write down my name every day, the fans don’t seem to get it.”
Flair continued by stating that those people holding back should have at it because if he was in her shoes, that’s exactly what he would do about it. He stated that if fans are tired of seeing his daughter on WWE television then they can go watch her on TV in another event. He brought up how she’s a millionaire because of WWE and can do whatever she wants.
It appears that this interview was recorded before the big news that broke on Tuesday regarding Charlotte as other excerpts were released prior to the reveal that Flair is taking time off from WWE.
