Charlotte Flair will officially enter the 30-Woman Royal Rumble match on January 27 at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Ahead of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, Flair was interviewed by SportsKeeda during which she was asked about her father, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair‘s record of 16 world championship victories.

Till date no wrestler has been able to touch Flair’s long-standing record that The Nature Boy had set in his 40-year-long career except one man – John Cena.

The Leader of Cenation’s 16 world title victories are tied with Flair’s.

Do you think that John Cena can surpass your father’s record someday?

Charlotte Flair: Yes, I think John Cena is one of the hardest working men in our industry and if anyone wants to achieve what my dad did, it will be him.

What’s interesting is that the number of Ric’s world championship reigns varies by source, usually ranging from 16 to 25.

WWE recognizes the count as 16 but Flair claims himself to be a 21-time champion.

Do you think you can become a 16-time Women’s Champion, following in your father’s footsteps, someday?

Charlotte Flair: That’s not something I think about.

It’s only a matter of time until Cena gets his 17th world title victory and officially breaks Flair’s legendary record.

In 2018, Cena worked only two pay-per-view matches since WrestleMania 34 – one at the Greatest Royal Rumble and the other at Super Show-Down.

The Champ also missed SummerSlam and Survivor Series last year thus signaling that his time as a regular performer is up.

Given how he is now a part-time Superstar, Cena may have to stay away from Hollywood for a few months if WWE decides to put a world title around his waist and finally have his bronze statue shine at the Headquarters in Stamford.
