WWE has posted a video of Charlotte Flair driving the pace car for the Coca-Cola 600. The race happened on May 26 in Flair’s hometown at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Nascar drivers and fans rallied around Charlotte, who was advertised as the nine-time Women’s champion. That stat in particular is an important one for WWE fans, as its drawing closer to Ric Flair’s record of 16 world championships.
Many believe it’s only a matter of time until Charlotte breaks that record. The conversation regarding Ric”s 16 titles took on a different tone when John Cena tied the record. Then the question became whether or not Cena would hit number 17.
But considering the fact that John is now practically retired, it could be that Charlotte will indeed be the one to break the record. It’s a milestone that some would argue she doesn’t deserve, while others say it won’t mean as much since all of her titles come from one company and one promoter.
However there’s no doubt that Charlotte Flair has put in the work and it’s clear that WWE is firmly behind her as one of the top stars in the company.
