WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has explained how he missed Charlotte Flair’s SmackDown return despite being in the arena for the show.

Charlotte Flair made her return to the WWE ring for the first time in seven months on the 30th of December 2022 edition of SmackDown where she stunned the world by defeating Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.

Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair has revealed that he missed his daughter’s big return as he didn’t even know The Queen was making her return:

“I was in the building and left and didn’t know it. It was the first time in so many years that nobody knew. I was in the building, I went and saw Roman (Reigns) and John (Cena), it was the greatest time and I really felt like part of the family again. I had a ball, but I didn’t even know.”

“I left and went to American Social [sports bar in Tampa, FL], and then I got word that she was there. I had a couple of drinks with the hockey players. Hockey players on the Lightning like to drink. I wasn’t going to go back to the building. I watched it and they put it on every TV for me. It was amazing. That was old-school kayfabe.”
