In professional wrestling, no one can accurately predict how long a superstar will continue to grace the squared circle, regardless of their immense popularity and success. Even icons like The Rock, John Cena, and Batista eventually move on to new endeavors.
One such prominent figure in women's wrestling, Charlotte Flair, has amassed an astonishing 14 Women's Championships since her debut on WWE's main roster in the summer of 2015. Now 37 years old, Charlotte Flair has achieved remarkable milestones within WWE, and she has recently embarked on a new venture by delving into the world of acting.
While it remains uncertain whether her newfound passion will replace wrestling as her primary career, esteemed two-time WWE Hall of Famer, Booker T, believes that Flair will shift her focus away from the ring within the next five years.
Charlotte Flair's Bright Future: Booker T's Conviction
During a recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T elaborated on his conviction that Charlotte Flair is destined for even more outstanding accomplishments in the future.
Asserting her status as the show's undeniable star, Booker T emphasized, "She knows it. Everybody else knows it. Fall in line. It's the best thing going on today. You don't have to like it, but you better learn to love it... It's only fitting.
She's the best at what she does, man. Wrestling will be in her rearview mirror in the next five years, just because there's so much more for her right now. And I think she knows that, too." Booker T expressed his belief that Flair possesses an insatiable hunger for more.
In his view, wrestling has merely been a temporary stop or bump along her illustrious journey. With the world at her fingertips, Booker T is convinced that Flair has the freedom to pursue any avenue she desires. Upcoming for Charlotte Flair is a highly anticipated title match against WWE Women's Champion Asuka, scheduled for the June 30th edition of Smackdown in London, England.
If Flair emerges victorious, it will mark her 15th World Title triumph, placing her just one championship behind her father, Ric Flair, and the legendary John Cena. As Charlotte Flair continues to dominate the wrestling landscape, the clock ticks toward an inevitable future where her wrestling career takes a backseat to other exciting prospects.
With Booker T's vote of confidence and undeniable talent, Charlotte Flair will leave an indelible mark wherever her aspirations may lead her in the next half-decade.
