Mickie James and Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria) recently spoke with Landon Buford, and revealed that Ric Flair wanted them to train Charlotte…

Lisa: “Ric asked if I could help train his daughter Charlotte along with Mickie James. I think I was the scheduled for an appearance that did not come through and to have Ric Flair call you and say train my daughter. How cool is that?”

Mickie: “Ric really wanted us to train Charlotte before she was in the business. The only actual training I did with her was when I went down to NXT, but she was injured at the time. So, I never actually got to see her wrestle. I was down there for like a week at the training facility. What I recall is Ric wanting Lisa and me to train Ashley (Charlotte Flair). I can confirm that Ric did express interest prior to her pursuing a career in wrestling and he wanted her to learn from who he considered the best. He has always been very kind to Lisa and me throughout our careers.”
