Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr[12][13] (born April 5, 1986) is an American professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where she performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Charlotte Flair, and is the current SmackDown Women's Champion in her record-setting sixth reign.

She is a second generation professional wrestler, being the daughter of Ric Flair. In 2012, she began training with WWE, and debuted in NXT in 2013.[14] In 2014, she was named Rookie of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI),[15] and was promoted to WWE's main roster in 2015. Flair won the Divas Championship, the NXT Women's Championship twice, the Raw Women's Championship a record six times (to which she is the inaugural champion), and the SmackDown Women's Championship a record six times. She also won the Women's Tag Team Championship, thus becoming a Triple Crown Champion and a Grand Slam Champion. Flair also won the Royal Rumble match in 2020. All totaled, Flair has won 15 women's singles championships and is recognized as a 13 time women's world champion by WWE (who do not consider the NXT Women's title to be a "world" title retroactive to her 2nd reign with the belt only as others are recognized), and 16 total championships in WWE when including her Women's Tag Team Championship reign with Asuka.

In 2016, PWI readers voted Flair Woman of the Year and Top Female Professional Wrestler.[16] She became the first female to headline a WWE pay-per-view event in October 2016 (alongside Sasha Banks), and one of three women to headline WrestleMania for the first time, WWE's flagship annual event, in 2019 (alongside Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey).

Early life[edit]

Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr was born in Charlotte, North Carolina on April 5, 1986, to Ric Flair and his then-wife Elizabeth Harrell.[17] She has an older half-sister, Megan, and an older half-brother, David, while her younger brother Reid died on March 29, 2013.[3] Fliehr won two NCHSAA 4 A-State championships for volleyball during her time at Providence High School and was team captain and player of the year in 2004–2005.[18] She attended Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, playing volleyball in the 2005 and 2006 seasons[19] before transferring to North Carolina State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in public relations in Spring 2008 while also being a certified personal trainer prior to becoming a wrestler.[2]

Flair was ringside for the December 6, 2004, episode of Raw in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, where Lita and Trish Stratus competed in the main event for the WWE Women's Championship. Almost 12 years later, on October 3, 2016, Flair herself and rival Sasha Banks would do the same, marking only the third time a Women's Championship match main evented Raw.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

World Championship Wrestling (2000)[edit]

In 2000, Flair made her first appearances in professional wrestling at the age of 14, appearing with her father in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as Ashley Flair during his feud with Vince Russo and her half-brother David. On the May 15 episode of Monday Nitro, Flair appeared in a vignette in which Russo, David and Daffney invaded the Flair family home until being confronted by Flair, her mother Beth, and her brother Reid.[20] At The Great American Bash on June 11, Flair was at ringside for a retirement match between Ric and David. After Russo attempted to interfere in the match on David's behalf, she and her brother Reid attacked him and handcuffed him, enabling their father to go on to defeat David.[4] On the following evening's episode of Monday Nitro, David and Russo faced Ric in a handicap match with the Flair family once again at ringside. Flair attempted to interfere on her father's behalf, but was restrained by R&B Security, Russo's henchmen, allowing David and Russo to defeat Ric and partially shave his head.[6]

WWE[edit]

Early years in NXT (2012–2014)[edit]

Flair in April 2014

On May 17, 2012, she signed a developmental contract with WWE and trained under Lodi in North Carolina before joining NXT, the WWE developmental territory, in Tampa, Florida.[9][21] Her trainers in NXT included Sara Del Rey.[10] Fliehr adopted the ring name Charlotte and had her first televised singles match on the July 17, 2013, episode of NXT, where she defeated Bayley.[14] In late 2013, Charlotte formed a tag team with Bayley, and the two defeated Aksana and Alicia Fox on the September 4 episode of NXT.[22] On the October 10 episode of NXT, Bayley accompanied Charlotte to a match against Santana Garrett, which she won, but during the match The BFFs—Beautiful, Fierce Females (Sasha Banks and Summer Rae) came to the ring and attempted to convince Bayley to join them, much to Charlotte's annoyance.[23]

On the November 13 episode of NXT, Charlotte attacked Bayley and joined the BFFs, establishing herself as a heel in the process.[24][25] After a two-month absence due to a legit injury, Charlotte returned on the January 22, 2014, episode of NXT and began accompanying Rae and Banks to their matches.[26][27][28] In February, Charlotte confronted and challenged NXT Women's Champion Paige during an interview with Renee Young.[29][30] Following Rae's elevation to WWE's main roster, Charlotte and Banks went on to feud with Bayley, who formed an alliance with Natalya, who defeated Charlotte by disqualification after Banks interfered on the March 27 episode of NXT.[31] On April 6 at WrestleMania XXX, she appeared alongside Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss in Triple H's entrance in his match against Daniel Bryan.[32] The feud between Charlotte and Paige ended on the April 24 episode of NXT, when Charlotte and Banks defeated Emma and Paige, with Charlotte scoring the pinfall over Paige.[33]

NXT Women's Champion (2014–2015)[edit]

In early May, Charlotte competed in an eight-woman tournament for the vacant NXT Women's Championship, defeating Emma in the first round, Alexa Bliss in the semi-finals[34] and Natalya in the finals at TakeOver on May 29, 2014, to win the NXT Women's Championship for the first time in her career, her first championship win in the WWE.[35] After a four-month absence from the show, Summer Rae returned on the June 6 episode of NXT, distracting Bayley and allowing Charlotte to defeat her, after which the BFFs attempted to attack Bayley, only to be chased away by Emma and the returning Paige.[36] The altercation prompted a six-woman tag team match on the June 12 episode of NXT, which the BFFs lost after Bayley pinned Charlotte.[37] On the July 3 episode of NXT, Charlotte got a measure of retribution over Bayley in a tag team match, where she and Sasha Banks defeated Bayley and Becky Lynch. After the match Charlotte left Banks to get attacked by Bayley, with Banks officially disbanding the BFFs in a backstage segment later that night.[38]

On the July 24 episode of NXT, Charlotte successfully defended the women's championship against Summer Rae.[39] Charlotte then went on to retain against Bayley at TakeOver: Fatal 4-Way on September 11, after which she stopped Banks from attacking Bayley afterwards,[40] and after defeating Bayley in a rematch on October 2 episode of NXT, she raised Bayley's arm before they shared a hug and shook hands, thus turning Charlotte back into a fan favorite character.[41][unreliable source] Following this, Charlotte and Bayley feuded with Banks and her partner Becky Lynch throughout the following several weeks.[42][unreliable source] Charlotte made her first appearance on WWE's main roster on the Slammy Awards special episode of Raw on December 8, where she lost to Natalya in a non-title match.[43] Charlotte retained the NXT Women's Championship against Banks at TakeOver: R Evolution on December 11,[44] and in rematches that took place on the December 25[45] and the January 21, 2015, episodes of NXT, respectively.[46][unreliable source] At TakeOver: Rival on February 11, Charlotte dropped the championship to Banks in a fatal four-way match that also involved Bayley and Becky Lynch, ending her reign at 258 days.[47] She failed to regain the championship in a rematch against Banks that took place on the March 4 episode of NXT.[48]

At TakeOver: Unstoppable on May 20, Charlotte teamed up with Bayley to defeat Emma and Dana Brooke.[49] After defeating Emma and Brooke again on the July 8 episode of NXT, this time teaming with her rival Sasha Banks, Charlotte challenged Banks to an NXT Women's Championship match, which Banks accepted.[50] They had their championship match the following week on the July 15 episode of NXT, in which Banks retained the championship, and afterwards the two shared a hug and Banks raised Charlotte's hand as a sign of respect.[51]

Divas Champion (2015–2016)[edit]

On the July 13, 2015, episode of Raw, Stephanie McMahon called for a "revolution" in the Divas division, subsequently introducing Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks as members of the main roster. Charlotte and Lynch allied with Paige, who was engaged in a feud with Team Bella (Alicia Fox and The Bella Twins), while Banks allied with Tamina and Naomi, starting a rivalry between the three teams.[52] The trio of Charlotte, Lynch, and Paige was dubbed Team PCB after the first name initials of each wrestler.[53] On July 19 at Battleground, Charlotte defeated Banks and Brie Bella in a triple threat match in her WWE pay-per-view debut.[54][55][56] The three teams would ultimately face off at SummerSlam in a three team elimination match, which Charlotte's team won after Lynch pinned Brie Bella.[57]

On the August 31 episode of Raw, Charlotte overcame fellow Team PCB members' records in the first ever Divas Beat the Clock challenge, and was named the new number one contender to Nikki Bella's Divas Championship.[58] Her title match against Nikki Bella, initially advertised for Night of Champions,[59] took place on the September 14 episode of Raw, so Charlotte could stop Bella from surpassing AJ Lee's record and becoming the longest-reigning Divas Champion.[60] Charlotte won the match by disqualification after she pinned Brie due to the twins switching places, causing Nikki to retain her title and beat the record in the process.[61] On September 20 at Night of Champions, Charlotte defeated Nikki in a rematch to win the Divas Championship for the first time.[62] During Charlotte's celebration the following night on Raw, Paige cut a worked shoot promo and turned on her and Lynch, berating them and the Divas division.[63] Throughout October, Paige acted as if she wanted to reconcile with Lynch and Charlotte,[64][65] only to attack them both and cement her departure from the team, just a night after Charlotte successfully retained her championship against Nikki Bella at Hell in a Cell.[66][67] In the end of 2015, Charlotte successfully defended her title against Paige on three different occasions—at Survivor Series on November 22,[68][69][70][71][72] in a rematch the following night on Raw[73] and at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs on December 13.[74]

In November, Charlotte began displaying villainous traits after defeating her friend Becky Lynch by feigning a leg injury, followed by a distraction provided by her father.[75] Throughout December, the relationship between Charlotte and Lynch continued to strain,[76][77][78][79][80] and after losing to her on the January 4, 2016, episode Raw, Charlotte attacked Lynch and solidified her villainous turn in the process for the first time since 2014 in NXT.[81][82] Charlotte successfully retained the Divas Championship against Lynch with help from her father three days later on SmackDown,[83] and at the Royal Rumble on January 24.[84] In February, after she lost to her in a non–title match,[85] Brie Bella received a title match at Fastlane, where Charlotte once again successfully retained her title.[86] A few weeks later, on March 12 at Roadblock, Charlotte retained the title against Natalya.[87] Also in March, Charlotte caused a number one contender's match between Lynch and Banks to end in a no contest after she attacked both contenders.[88] As a result, a triple threat match between Charlotte, Banks and Lynch for the Divas Championship was scheduled for WrestleMania 32.[89][90] At the event, a new WWE Women's Championship replaced the Divas Championship[91] and Charlotte defeated Banks and Lynch to become the inaugural champion.[92][93]

Raw Women's Champion (2016–2017)[edit]

Following WrestleMania 32, Charlotte began a feud with Natalya, successfully defending the title against her on the April 11, 2016, episode of Raw.[94][95] Due to the disqualification ending, a rematch took place at Payback on May 1,[96] where she defeated Natalya after referee Charles Robinson ended the match as Charlotte held Natalya in the sharpshooter, even though Natalya had not submitted, in a reference to the infamous "shoot screwjob" the Montreal Screwjob.[97] After the match, both Natalya and Bret Hart, who was in Natalya's corner, applied the Sharpshooter on Charlotte and Ric Flair.[98] At Extreme Rules on May 22, Charlotte retained her title against Natalya in a submission match after a distraction provided by Dana Brooke who was dressed as Flair.[99] The following night on Raw, Charlotte turned on her father by claiming she no longer needed him, further aligning herself with Brooke who would be dubbed as her protege.[100] At Money in the Bank on June 19, Charlotte and Brooke defeated Natalya and Lynch in a tag team match.[101] On the June 20 episode of Raw, Charlotte retained her title over Paige with help of Brooke, with the two attacking Paige after the match, which ended with Banks making the save.[102] This led to a tag team match the following week, where Banks and Paige scored the victory.[103] On July 24 at Battleground,[104] Charlotte and Brooke were defeated by Banks and the debuting Bayley.[105]

After being drafted to the Raw brand as part of the 2016 WWE draft on July 19,[106][107] Charlotte made her first appearance for the brand on the July 25 episode of Raw, where she lost the WWE Women's Championship to Sasha Banks, ending her reign at 113 days.[108] On August 21 at SummerSlam, Charlotte competed against Banks in a rematch for the title, in which Flair was victorious, thus becoming a two-time champion.[109][110] At Clash of Champions on September 25, Charlotte retained the title (which had been renamed Raw Women's Championship after the creation of the SmackDown Women's Championship)[111][112] in a triple threat match against Banks and Bayley.[113] However, Charlotte dropped the title to Banks once again in the main event of the October 3 episode of Raw.[114] Around this time, Charlotte's ring name was lengthened to Charlotte Flair.[115]

At Hell in a Cell on October 30, Flair regained the title from Banks in the first ever women's Hell in a Cell match to become a three-time women's champion.[116] This was also the first time a women's match was the last match on a WWE pay-per-view.[117] The following night on Raw, Flair was revealed as captain of Team Raw for Survivor Series on November 20, where Team Raw defeated Team SmackDown with Flair and Bayley being the survivors for Team Raw.[118] On the November 28 episode of Raw, Flair competed against Banks in a falls count anywhere match, where Banks defeated Flair for the title, after which Ric Flair came out and celebrated with Banks.[119] A 30-minute iron man match between the two was scheduled for Roadblock: End of the Line on December 18,[120] which resulted in a 2–2 draw, but Flair defeated Banks 3–2 in sudden death overtime, becoming a record four-time Raw Women's Champion, as well as ending their six-month feud since it was stipulated that Banks could not invoke her rematch clause after that.[121][122] Shortly after, Flair started a feud with Bayley who managed to defeat her in two non-title matches since her main roster debut in August. This led to a title match between the two that took place at the Royal Rumble on January 29, 2017, where Flair successfully retained the title over Bayley.[123][124]

On the February 13 episode of Raw, Flair dropped the title to Bayley in the main event.[125] She later failed to regain the title in a rematch against Bayley at Fastlane on March 5,[126] marking her first pay-per-view singles match loss after 16 singles victories.[127][128][129] Also in March, Flair ended her association with Brooke and defeated her in a singles match.[130][131] At WrestleMania 33 on April 2, Flair competed in a four-way elimination match against Bayley, Banks, and Nia Jax, being the last woman eliminated by eventual winner Bayley.[132] On the April 10 episode of Raw, Flair was defeated by Jax in her final match for the brand.[133]

SmackDown Women's Champion (2017–2018)[edit]

On April 11, 2017, Flair was moved to SmackDown brand as part of the Superstar Shake-up.[134] The following week on SmackDown Live, she defeated SmackDown Women's Champion Naomi in a non-title match,[135] to earn a title opportunity, which ended in a no-contest after The Welcoming Committee (Natalya, Carmella, and Tamina) attacked both contestants.[136] This match made Flair the first woman in WWE history to ever compete in the main events of Raw, SmackDown and a WWE pay-per-view.[137] In May, Flair aligned with Becky Lynch and Naomi against The Welcoming Committee, turning face in the process.[138][139][140][141] At Backlash, The Welcoming Committee defeated Flair, Naomi and Lynch in a six-woman tag team match when the latter submitted to Natalya's sharpshooter.[142][143] Shortly afterwards, Flair competed at Money in the Bank, as part of the first ever women's money in the bank ladder match, which was won by Carmella.[144][145] At Battleground on July 23, Flair competed in a five-way elimination match to determine the number one contender for the championship but was the last woman eliminated by eventual winner Natalya.[146]

After taking a hiatus to assist her father in his legit health issues, Flair returned to SmackDown on September 19, thanking the WWE Universe for her family's support. Later that night, she won a fatal four-way match to become the number one contender for the SmackDown Women's Championship.[147] At Hell in a Cell on October 8, Natalya retained her title over Flair as she attacked her with a steel chair, causing a disqualification victory for Flair.[148] On the November 14 episode of SmackDown, Flair defeated Natalya in a rematch to win the title in her hometown, becoming the first woman's wrestler to win the Divas, NXT, Raw and SmackDown Women's Championship.[149] With the win, Flair replaced Natalya in the interbrand champion vs. champion match against Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series, which Flair won.[150] A month later, at Clash of Champions on December 17, Flair retained the title against Natalya in a lumberjack match.[151]

Towards the end of 2017, Flair once again aligned with Becky Lynch and Naomi to feud with the debuting Riott Squad (Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan), after the three attacked them shortly after their debut.[152][153][154][155][156][157][158] At Fastlane on March 11, 2018, Flair defeated Ruby Riott to retain the SmackDown Women's Championship[159] and was subsequently challenged by Royal Rumble winner Asuka.[160] Flair won the ensuing title match at WrestleMania 34 by making Asuka submit, ending the challenger's undefeated streak at 914 days in the process.[161] Two days later, on the April 10 episode of SmackDown, The IIconics (Peyton Royce and Billie Kay) attacked Flair. Carmella used the opportunity to cash in her Money in the Bank contract and won the championship for the first time in her career.[162][163] Flair failed to regain the title in a rematch on May 6 at Backlash.[164] In June, Flair competed in her second Money in the Bank ladder match, which was ultimately won by Alexa Bliss.[165] After the event, Flair took time off to undergo a surgery due to a ruptured breast implant.

Flair returned on the July 31 episode of SmackDown, saving Becky Lynch from an attack by Carmella. She later defeated Carmella to be inserted into the championship match between Carmella and Lynch at SummerSlam, making it a triple-threat match.[166][167] At the event, Flair pinned Lynch to win the SmackDown Women's Championship for a second time in her career. With the win, Flair became the second woman in WWE history to hold seven women's championships, alongside WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus.[168] After the match, Lynch attacked Flair, igniting a feud between the two,[169][170][171][172][173] which led to a match at Hell in a Cell on September 16, in which Flair lost the title to Lynch.[174][175][176] Flair defeated Lynch via disqualification at Super Show-Down[177][178] and fought her in a rematch two days later, on the October 9 episode of SmackDown, which ended in a double count-out.[179] As a result of this, Flair received another title opportunity against Lynch in the first Last Woman Standing match at Evolution, in which Lynch defeated Flair.[180][181]

Championship reigns (2018–2020)[edit]

In November, Flair was picked by Becky Lynch as her replacement in a match against Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series,[182][183] which she lost via disqualification after brutally attacking Rousey with a kendo stick and a chair, thus turning heel in the process.[184] The following month, on December 16 at the TLC pay-per-view, Flair competed in the first ever women's Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match against both Lynch and Asuka,[185][186][187][188] who would go on to win the match after Rousey pushed both Flair and Lynch off a ladder.[189][190]

At Royal Rumble on January 27, Flair competed in the women's Royal Rumble match, eliminating five women, before being last eliminated by Becky Lynch.[191] As a result, Lynch earned a title match against Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35. However, in February, Vince McMahon (kayfabe) suspended Lynch for 60 days and replaced her with Flair.[192][193][194][195][196] In March, Lynch was reinstated. At Fastlane, she defeated Flair via disqualification, after Rousey attacked Lynch to give her the win, making the title match at WrestleMania a triple threat match.[197][198][199][200][201] Just a few days before WrestleMania, on the March 26 episode of SmackDown, Flair defeated Asuka to win the SmackDown Women's Championship for a third time, becoming the only woman in WWE history to have won eight women's championships.[202][203] At the event, in what was the first time that women main evented a WrestleMania event, Flair lost her championship in a Winner Takes All match for both her SmackDown and Ronda Rousey's Raw Women's Championships when Lynch pinned Rousey to win both titles.[204]

Shortly after WrestleMania, Flair continued her feud with Lynch over the SmackDown Women's Championship, stating that she had not been defeated at WrestleMania. She earned a rematch by defeating Bayley[205][206][207][208] and at Money in the Bank regained the title by defeating Lynch after an interference by Lacey Evans. After the match, the two continued to attack Lynch until Bayley made the save. Bayley, who had won the Money in the Bank contract earlier in the night, cashed in and defeated Flair to end her reign at just 4 minutes and 52 seconds, Flair's shortest title reign of all time, and the shortest for that title respectively.[209] After Money in the Bank, Lynch focused on defending her Raw championship, putting an end to the almost year-long feud between the two.[210][211]

After a brief hiatus, Flair returned on the July 16 episode of SmackDown. She called herself "the greatest female superstar of all time" a week later, and entered into a short storyline with WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus.[212][213][214][215] At SummerSlam, Flair defeated Stratus by submission in what was the latter's second retirement match.[216] After that win, Flair felt that she deserved an opportunity at the SmackDown Women's Championship and re-ignited her feud with Bayley.[217][218] On September 15, at Clash of Champions, Bayley retained against Flair after she used an exposed turnbuckle.[219][220][221] After making Bayley submit during a tag team match,[222] Flair earned herself another title opportunity. At Hell in a Cell on October 6, Flair defeated Bayley to win her record fifth SmackDown Women's Championship, her tenth women's championship on WWE's main roster.[223] Five days later on SmackDown, Flair dropped the title back to Bayley.[224][225]

As part of the 2019 draft, Flair was drafted to the Raw brand.[226] In November, Flair was revealed as captain of Team Raw for Survivor Series, where Team Raw and Team Smackdown lost to Team NXT, after Team Raw member Asuka spit green mist in Flair's face, causing Flair to be eliminated by Lacey Evans.[227] The following night on Raw, Flair lost to Asuka, with some assistance from her tag team partner, Kairi Sane.[228] Flair then joined forces with Becky Lynch to face The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka and Kairi Sane) for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship in a TLC match at the TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, but the two were unsuccessful.[229]

On January 26, 2020, at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, Flair won the annual Royal Rumble match by lastly eliminating Shayna Baszler.[230] After weeks of teasing an announcement regarding her championship opponent at WrestleMania 36, that led to several confrontations with NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley on Raw[231] and NXT.[232] At TakeOver: Portland, Flair attacked Ripley and accepted her challenge.[233] At WresteMania 36 Night 2 on April 5, Flair defeated Ripley by submission to capture her second NXT Women's Championship, which overall marked her 12th women's championship in the WWE.[234] At TakeOver: In Your House, Flair lost the title to Io Shirai in a triple threat match, also involving Rhea Ripley, ending her reign at 63 days.[235] In late June, she was attacked by Nia Jax that led to a kayfabe arm injury. This was done to write Flair off television so she could take some time off to undergo another surgery on her breast implants.[236][237]

Grand Slam Champion (2020–present)[edit]

At TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs on December 20, Flair returned as a face, as the surprise tag team partner of Asuka, with whom she defeated Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler to win the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship. With the win, Flair became the fifth Women's Triple Crown Champion and fourth Women's Grand Slam Champion.[238] Flair and Asuka successfully defended the titles in a triple threat tag team match on the December 25 episode of SmackDown.[239] Flair then began a feud with Lacey Evans and her father, Ric Flair, who began to interfere in her matches. Flair and Asuka would lose the tag team titles back to Jax and Baszler at the Royal Rumble, due to interference from Flair and Evans. On the same night, Flair competed in the Women's Royal Rumble match, entering at number 15 and eliminating Peyton Royce, before being eliminated by both Rhea Ripley and the eventual winner Bianca Belair.[240]

On the February 15 episode of Raw, after Lacey Evans announced she was legitimately pregnant, the Raw Women's Championship match between her and Asuka at Elimination Chamber was cancelled.[241][242] On the February 22 episode of Raw, Flair told her father to go home because she couldn't concentrate on her matches, marking the end of their storyline.[243] On the March 1 episode of Raw, Flair made her intentions to challenge Asuka for the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 37 clear, but that did not happen due to Flair testing positive for COVID-19, removing her from the WrestleMania title picture.[241][242]

Flair returned on the April 12 edition of Raw, stating she was 'The Opportunity'. Later in the night, she interfered in the Raw Women's Championship match between Asuka and Rhea Ripley, turning heel in the process.[244] The following week, she was suspended (in kayfabe) and fined $100,000 for assaulting a referee, after losing to Asuka in a singles match.[245] Her suspension would be lifted on the April 26 edition of Raw by Sonya Deville.[246] Charlotte would also have several title matches over the next three pay-per-views, including a triple threat match against Asuka and Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania Backlash and against Ripley at Hell in a Cell, which both she was unsuccessful in,[247][248] but got another opportunity at Money in the Bank, which she won by submission, thus making her a record-tying five time Raw Women's Champion.[249] Despite she lost the title the next day on Raw against Nikki A.S.H., who cashed her Money in the Bank briefcase,[250] Flair regained the title at SummerSlam.[251]

As a part of the 2021 Draft, Flair was drafted to SmackDown as a Raw Women's Champion.[252] On the October 22 episode of SmackDown, Flair and Lynch exchanged their titles thus Flair became SmackDown Women's Champion for the record sixth time.[253] On November 8, it was announced that Flair would face Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch at Survivor Series where she was defeated by Lynch.[254][255]

From May 2010 until February 2013, Flair was married to Riki Johnson.[267][268] In Second Nature, a joint biography of her and her father released in late 2017, she revealed that she allegedly left Johnson after having been the victim of domestic assault multiple times.[263] In October 2018, Johnson filed a lawsuit against Flair, her father, author Brian Shields, and WWE for "defamatory statements" in the book. From 2013 to October 2015, Flair was married to English wrestler Thomas Latimer, better known as Bram.[269][270] She began dating Mexican wrestler Manuel Andrade Oropeza, better known as Andrade, in February 2019.[271][272] The couple got engaged on January 1, 2020.[273]

Flair has multiple tattoos, including two hearts above her waistline, her first husband Riki's name below her waistline, a heart on her left wrist, a quote from the Bible on the left side of her torso that reads "guard your heart above all else, for it will determine the course of your life" (Proverbs 4:23), a cross on the right side of her torso, and a quote on her right forearm reading "a little patience..." from the Guns N' Roses song "Patience". The latter two are tributes to her late brother, Reid.[274]

On March 22, 2021, Flair confirmed that she had tested positive for COVID-19, having been absent from WWE events for several weeks prior to her announcement.[275]

Championships and accomplishments[edit]

Flair was a one-time (and final) Divas Champion.
Flair is the inaugural and record six-time Raw Women's Champion.
Flair is a record six-time and current SmackDown Women's Champion.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Charlotte Flair's first reign was when the championship was called the WWE Women's Championship[285] As a result of the 2016 brand extension draft, which happened during her first reign, the title became exclusive to Raw.[107] It was renamed the Raw Women's Championship during her second reign after SmackDown created the SmackDown Women's Championship.
