WWE's Charlotte Flair: I Wouldn't Have Missed Watching Andrade At AAA TripleMania XXIX For The World
Flair watched her fiancée perform at the AAA event
Charlotte Flair has opened up on her decision to take time off from WWE live events to watch fiancée Andrade perform at AAA TripleMania earlier this month, saying she wouldn't have missed it 'for the world'.
Flair was absent from a WWE live event the week prior to SummerSlam 2021, with the current Raw Women's Champion instead in Mexico alongside her father Ric to watch Andrade battle Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega World Title.
Flair has confirmed Andrade's report that she asked for the time off two-and-a-half months before the event and detailed asking her father to accompany Andrade to the ring for the match.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Flair said: "Just seeing Manny...so he was like, ‘Mami, TripleMania is my WrestleMania’ and to see him go back to Mexico and like be proud of himself and feel confident in himself and be the superstar that he is and especially in his home country, I was just like, ‘I’m not missing this for the world.’
"So I actually took off two-and-a-half months ago from live events and if you know me, I haven’t asked off from a live event in like five years...actually I’ve never asked off from a live event. So I took off and I was like, ‘No, I wouldn’t miss it for the world’.
"Then, [with] my dad being gone, I asked him on Wednesday, I was like, ‘Hey, what are you doing this weekend?’ He’s like, ‘Nothing hunny, why?’ I’m like, ‘You wanna go to Mexico?’ He was like, ‘For what? Cancun? Don’t you have to work?’ I’m like, ‘No dad, I’m not going to the beach.’ I’m like, ‘It’s Manny versus Kenny.’ He’s like, ‘Really!? Yeah, I’d love to watch it with you.’ I’m like, ‘No dad, will you walk Manny to the ring?’ He was like, ‘You want me to walk Manny to the ring?’ And I’m like, ‘Yes.’ He’s like, ‘Oh my God, yes hunny, please,’ like so excited. He’s like, ‘What color [is] Manny wearing? I’ll get matching suits.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know dad! Can we just get you there first?’
"But when Manny asked me back in March, he felt deflated from not being on TV and what was happening. ‘What should I do?’ He’s like, ‘Tell me’ and I’m like, ‘I can’t tell you what to do and I can’t beg you to stay even though our life is together on the road because you’ll resent me. You need to go spread your wings and do what you do and if you wanna come back, I’m always gonna be here, I’m always gonna support you’ and it was the best thing for him and my dad said ‘yes’ to coming to Mexico.
"He wasn’t able to get his white suit made in time but let me tell you a little story though. So my dad met me in Pittsburgh to fly to Mexico but all of his flights were delayed to get from Atlanta to Pittsburgh so he rented a jet just to get to Pittsburgh. That’s how much it meant to be by Manny in AAA and it was so amazing.
"My dad genuinely was like, you can see how proud he was to be out there with Manny. That’s how much Manny means to him and I think my dad also knows Manny’s gonna be the man who takes care of me when he’s gone and it’s like a passing of a torch."
