Meet Charlotte and Ric Flair at WWE NXT in Central Florida


Two-time WWE Hall of Famer joins daughter on show in Melbourne

WWE NXT Live will return to Melbourne on Sunday, Feb. 24 for a history making night of NXT action at the Melbourne Auditorium, 625 E. Hibiscus Blvd.

For the first time in NXT history, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair will be in attendance for a special meet-n-greet with fans.

With a career that has spanned more than 40 years, Flair has been one of the most recognizable and successful names to ever step foot inside the squared circle. Known for his beach blonde hair, expensive attire and his trademark Whooo, many consider Flair to be one of the greatest wrestlers to ever lace up a pair of boots.

Since winning his first World Championship in 1981, Flair captured the coveted belt on 16 different occasions. After reigning supreme atop the wrestling world for decades, Flair’s unique style has influenced many including WWE greats Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

Today, Flair is inspiring another in-ring competitor, his daughter and NXT Diva Charlotte.

Charlotte, a former NCAA Division I volleyball standout, will join her father during the meet-n-greet in Melbourne.

• Flair’s appearance is in conjunction with the WWE NXT Live Tour, which occurs at the Melbourne Auditorium, 625 E. Hibiscus Blvd.

Eight big matches fill the card, including the NXT Divas in action. Doors open for the meet-n-greet autograph signing at 4 p.m. for VIP ticket holders and 5 p.m. for all others. Bell time is 6 p.m.

Tickets range from $10 to $35 and are available at Buddy’s Home Furnishings in Melbourne, Cocoa and Titusville. Tickets and additional information on the shows are available at NXT. NXT Live is sponsored by Buddy’s Home Furnishings and Brand Source Printing.

NXT is the official developmental system for the future stars of WWE. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins), Bo Dallas and Big E. Langston are WWE NXT alum recently called to the WWE roster.
