Following her return to WWE TV, Charlotte Flair quickly entered a feud with Lacey Evans and Ric Flair. Outside of the romantic relationship between Evans and The Nature Boy, The Sassy Southern Belle squared off with Charlotte in tag team and singles matches and Ric would often interfere to help his new squeeze pick up the win.
The storyline, mercifully for many, has since come to an end following Evans' pregnancy announcement, and Charlotte discussed the feud during a recent appearance on the Notsam Wrestling Podcast.
During the conversation, Flair noted she struggled with the idea that she would fall for her father's antics, especially since he managed her during the early portion of her main roster run.
"I really thought that him and Lacey worked well together. I understood it. I got it. I think my biggest struggle was well I'm the daughter of The Dirtiest Player In The Game, why can I not be The Dirtiest Player In The Game? Like, how or why would I fall for his antics if I've already been on camera with him and he was my manager? And that was tremendous, I grew as a performer, it took me to the next level. But why am I not The Dirtiest Player In The Game? I was like throwing a fit. Like, I don't understand. I can't fall for this, it doesn't make sense," Charlotte stated.
Ric Flair also recently talked about the storyline and admitted he found it difficult to be in a rivalry with his daughter.
