Charlotte Flair, the 14-time world women’s champion, recently discussed her wrestling legacy and potential choices for a modern incarnation of the legendary Four Horsemen stable in WWE. In an exclusive interview with The Post, Charlotte promoted the official ticket release for WWE’s WrestleMania XL, set to take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on April 6-7, 2024.
The Four Horsemen, led by Charlotte’s father, Ric Flair, is one of the most iconic stables in pro wrestling history. When asked to select current women’s wrestlers for a contemporary version of the group, Charlotte provided her choices, one from each of WWE’s main brands.
From NXT, she chose Tiffany, while from Raw, she picked Trish Stratus, and from SmackDown, she selected Asuka. Asuka’s inclusion was intriguing, given her history as a rival of Charlotte’s, including recent encounters on “SmackDown.”
Charlotte explained her choice, saying, “I think I’m always going to have some competition with Asuka, whether she’s champion or not because iron sharpens iron.”

Regarding the role of a manager for the group, akin to J.J. Dillon with the original Four Horsemen, Charlotte expressed her preference for a male manager. Her initial choice was Paul Heyman, but she acknowledged his involvement with the Bloodline storyline. Instead, she endorsed The Miz for the role, praising his in-your-face style and willingness to embrace the role of a villain.
In the world of professional wrestling, where real-life personas often blend with on-screen characters, Charlotte shared her perspective on being in the title picture. She humorously remarked, “No, I just have less luggage to carry,” shedding light on the differences between her real-life and storyline personas.
