Charlotte Flair has recently spoken about potentially breaking her father’s world title record, but claimed that he would claim he has 21 titles if she reaches the 16 mark.
Ric Flair is a two-time Hall of Famer, although Charlotte is doing him proud with her legendary run in the WWE, and is one of the greatest women wrestlers of all time.
Charlotte Flair spoke to Chris Van Vliet, before he epic encounter with Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 39.
The pair stole the show with one of the greatest women’s matches in WWE history, and one of the best matches WrestleMania has ever seen.
When asked about potentially breaking Ric Flair’s record of 16 World Championships, Charlotte Flair quickly replied that her father would change his answer to saying he had 21 world championships.
Sources for the number of World titles won by Ric Flair range from 16 to 25, with the WWE claiming he won 16 times.
Replying to Chris Van Vliet, Charlotte said;
“I don’t argue with my Dad when he talks about being the 21 time Champion. He’s been mentioning it a lot in the media lately. Sometimes, I wonder if he’s upset that I might break his record one day. I mean, he keeps talking about it for the last six months. However, when I asked him about it, he’s just proud of me.”
The 37-year-old Charlotte could be winding down her career, as it’s been reported that she was taking some time off following her loss to Rhea Ripley.
She is currently a 13-time (15 if you could the NXT Championship, which the WWE have on occasions), so still has some way to go to crack his record of 16 world championships.
However, the 21 times claim seems out of reach for The Queen.
