Despite probably having a long way to go before she hangs up her robe for good, Charlotte Flair has already wrestled more matches in WWE than her Hall Of Fame father.
Being a second or third generation Superstar in WWE can be both a curse and a blessing. The blessing part is pretty self-explanatory. Unlike most who want to get in the business, having a famous last name or family already in the industry means you technically already have your foot in the door if you want to follow in their footsteps.
On the other hand, once you do get your chance, there is a lot of pressure on you to succeed. Take David Flair, for instance. When he debuted in WCW fans couldn't help but compare him to his father, Ric Flair. When you're being compared to the best of all time you better make sure you're pretty good. Unfortunately, in David's case, he was not. However, his sister Charlotte most definitely is.
Charlotte is basically Flair 2.0. Her dad is still one of the greatest of all time, but she has added some incredible athleticism to what she has learned from her father. In fact, she recently revealed that she has surpassed The Nature Boy in a pretty significant way. Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin recently asked wrestlers on Twitter to reveal something about themselves fans might not know, and Charlotte's was extremely interesting.
I’ve had more matches than my Dad in the WWE. https://t.co/nnR3pA7PCM— Charlotte Flair (@MsCharlotteWWE) December 7, 2018
The seven-time Women's Champion revealed that she has already had more matches in WWE than her dad ever did. According to CageMatch.net, Charlotte's current tally stands at an impressive 696 matches. Flair's final match in WWE versus Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 24 was his 675th for the company. So Charlotte has 20 matches and counting on her old man in WWE.
It should be noted that Charlotte is only referring to matches in WWE. Flair famously wrestled and made a name for himself in the NWA and WCW before ever working for Vince McMahon. When you include every match he ever wrestled, the 16 time World Champion competed more than 4000 times. Charlotte has a long way to go if she wants to break that record.
