Ric Flair recently appeared on “SportsCenter,” where he discussed his wrestling career, the hardships he’s faced and his daughter, WWE superstar Charlotte Flair. Here are some highlights:

On what he’s most proud of from his wrestling career:

Flair: “You know, what I’m most proud of is my ability to adjust to the differences from the 70s, knowing that you went to Chapel Hill High School in Old Dominion, you can relate to that. It’s changed drastically and I think that something they weren’t able to adjust was the fact that we were sports entertainment, my god, to call ourselves entertainers, which is all we are, at the end of the day, very athletic hopefully entertainers, but just to be here and all these years later and just be so proud to be actually in touch with some of the guys, and part of the WWE and see my daughter, you know, be so successful and become the big star that she is, just to be happy in life, how many people are 71 that have been through what I have? Being in airplane crashes and I got real sick, I got hit by lightning, I could go down the list of things, I’m still here. To be here and be with you guys, it’s a big day for me, I live day to day and have so many great memories.”

On Charlotte’s career:

Flair: [Charlotte,] my youngest, of course, is, you know, one of the two or three elite people in the company and, you know, she will go down as the G.O.A.T when her time comes….Nobody knows how hard she’s had to work. Carrying my last name, there’s a lot of good that goes with that and there’s a lot of hardship. And you think, you walk in the door and you’re Charlotte Flair, and it’s just the door’s open. Yes, the door’s open, but then it’s twice as hard to live up to that mantle and I’m just happy that she’s living up to the wrestling part and she’s exceeded me in ability but she escaped the part of it that some people find humorous. You know, it was true, it was me, I drank and I did everything, I ran around, I did everything that was deemed wrong in life. Look where I am today. I’m on your show so I’m in a good place, regardless of what anybody wants to think or say.”
