Ashley Elizabeth Fliehr is an American professional wrestler who was born on April 5, 1986. She is presently signed to WWE, where she competes on the SmackDown brand as Charlotte Flair.
She is the daughter of Ric Flair, a second-generation professional wrestler. Flair made her professional wrestling debut alongside her father in World Championship Wrestling in 2000.
She began training with WWE in 2012 and made her NXT debut the following year. Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) named her Rookie of the Year in 2014, and she was promoted to WWE’s main roster in 2015. PWI readers named Flair Woman of the Year and Top Female Professional Wrestler in 2016.
Flair has won the WWE Divas Championship once, the NXT Women’s Championship twice, the Raw Women’s Championship six times, the SmackDown Women’s Championship six times, and the Women’s Tag Team Championship once, making her a Triple Crown and Grand Slam Champion.
Flair also won the 2020 Royal Rumble bout. She was the first woman (together with Sasha Banks) to headline a WWE pay-per-view event in October 2016. Her showdown against Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35 in 2019 marked the first time a women’s match headlined WWE’s main event.
Personal Life of Charlotte Flair
Flair was arrested for punching a police officer on September 5, 2008, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, following a fight between her then-boyfriend and her father. She pled guilty to a lesser offense and received a 45-day jail term that was reduced to supervised probation and a $200 fine.
Flair was married to Riki Johnson from May 2010 to February 2013. She supposedly left Johnson after being the victim of domestic assault numerous times, according to Second Nature, a collaborative biography of her and her father published in late 2017.
Johnson sued Flair, her father, author Brian Shields, and WWE in October 2018 for “defamatory comments” in the book. Flair was married to English wrestler Thomas Latimer, better known as Bram, from 2013 to October 2015.
In February 2019, she began dating Mexican wrestler Manuel Andrade Oropeza, commonly known as Andrade. The couple got engaged on January 1, 2020, and will marry in Mexico on May 27, 2022.
Flair has several tattoos, including two hearts above her waistline, her first husband Riki’s name below her waistline, a heart on her left wrist, a Bible quote on the left side of her torso that reads “guard your heart above all else, for it will determine the course of your life,” a cross on the right side of her torso, and a quote from the Guns N’ Roses song “Patience” on her right forearm. The last two are memorials to her late brother, Reid.
Charlotte Flair of Wwe Marries Andrade Almas of AEW in a Lavish Ceremony
Charlotte Flair has married All Elite Wrestling star Andrade El Idolo in Mexico. The couple, who became engaged in January 2020, married on Friday in front of 160 guests at Hacienda Mi Ranchito in Andrade’s hometown of Torreon.
WWE great Charlotte, whose real name is Ashley Fliehr, looked magnificent in her white dress as images and videos from the party surfaced on social media, including one of her posings with her legendary father Ric Flair.
In an interview with People, she discussed the influence, Andrade, 32, whose actual name is Manuel Alfonso Andrade Oropeza, has had on her life. She stated, “Before I met him, I knew nothing besides my profession.
“When I met him, he broadened my perspective on travel, life, love, and a different culture. I did not know how to enjoy life and work at the same time because I was so rigid with my career. He opened my eyes to that.”
Charlotte walked down the aisle in a bejeweled, lace-covered gown, and she also disclosed that she told their wedding planner that they desired a “casual” affair.
The Queen stated, “I didn’t want it to be anything like my character – Charlotte is not at all approachable or relatable… but I like being Ashley when I’m with him in gym clothes and without makeup.
“It’s strange because when we were discussing the wedding with the coordinator, I just wanted it to be informal.” Flair was given away by her Hall of Fame father and had eight bridesmaids, while Andrade had eight relatives as his groomsmen.

He is also well-known for his appearances in Mexico for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and Japan for New Japan Pro-Wrestling as La Sombra (“The Shadow”) and for his outings with the United States-based organization WWE as Andrade “Cien” Almas (later shortened to simply Andrade).
Andrade, a third-generation professional wrestler, debuted a month prior to his 14th birthday under the ring name Brillante Jr., a reference to his father, who wrestled as Brillante.

As one of the original members of Los Ingobernables, he won the masks of El Felino, Olimpico, and Volador Jr. in Lucha de Apuestas matches before losing his own mask to Atlantis. As part of an arrangement between CMLL and NJPW, Andrade also wrestled for New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where he won the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.
