Flair is one of the most successful women in WWE, having won 17 championships so far: She won the WWE (Raw) Women's Championship a record six times, the SmackDown Women's Championship a record seven times, the NXT Women's Championship twice, and both the Women's Tag Team and Divas Championships once. She was the last Divas Champion and the first (Raw) Women's Champion, when it replaced the Divas title at WrestleMania 32.

Flair is the daughter of former professional wrestler Ric Flair.[1] As a tribute to her father's group, The Four Horsemen, she, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Becky Lynch have called themselves "The Four Horsewomen of WWE".[14] She married Andrade, who is also a wrestler, in 2022.[3]

Titles and awards

change
  1. Charlotte's first reign was when the championship was called the WWE Women's Championship.[24] Following the 2016 WWE Draft, which happened during her first reign, the title became exclusive to Raw. It was renamed the Raw Women's Championship during her second reign after SmackDown created the SmackDown Women's Championship. It then got its original name back after it switched to SmackDown following the 2023 WWE Draft. Charlotte's ring name was made longer to Charlotte Flair during her third reign.
  2. The title is known as the Women's World Championship since June 12, 2ü23.
