From a creative standpoint, it's been interesting watching the Ric & Charlotte Flair Show as it's developed from him rooting for her in NXT to what they're doing now on the main roster. Until recently, they were both faces, as Ric has been for years in WWE. Whatever factors are turning the two of them heel are impossible to determine; it's more fun to speculate whether he's turning her bad.....or the other way around. At any rate, we're seeing the old Ric Flair......the 'dirtiest player in the game' persona that is much more enjoyable to watch than celebrating Flair as a good guy....and many of us are anticipating a split between the two of them.....soon. What I've found most interesting and unique about their relationship is how much Dad is (or isn't) following the script, as opposed to how much his natural.... er, flair for self-promotion has been causing him to overshadow Charlotte as they make their way toward the ring; doing his 'Nature Boy Shuffle' as he walks beside her, with Charlotte seemingly baffled as how to get the audience's focus back on herself....alternately wanting him with her yet knowing she'll never be the center of attention until the match actually starts......and perhaps wishing he'd stay home when she wrestles. When he accepted a match with Becky for his daughter to fight, you could see her anger.....er, flare.....and we realize that father & daughter are headed for a split. After all, no one thought Ric was going to accompany his off-spring to the ring forever, did they? One thing's for sure; if you're a new performer and are 'blessed' with a famous veteran (retired or not) to help you get over, can you think of anyone better than the immortal Ric Flair? Or is it really Charlotte the crowd is really noticing?
