The WrestleMania star is not the only one who has been spotted at a game. The Arrogant Aussie Grayson Waller is also known for his love of American football. Apart from that, AEW star MJF had a somewhat similar opportunity but in a different sport.

Charlotte Flair and her love for sports

Considering that her father is the legendary Ric Flair, fans have assumed that the young Ashley Fliehr will walk in her father’s footsteps. However, that was not the case for her as the younger Flair was interested in many other sports apart from pro wrestling. During her high school, she was one of the best volleyball players in North Carolina. She won two state championships in the years 2002 and 2004 and was even named the Conference 4A Player of the Year for 2004.

Apart from that, the 37-year-old star was also active in basketball and competitive cheerleading. This made her a gifted all-round athlete. Partaking in multiple sports helped her develop the extreme athleticism that keeps her going in the ring today. Even though she never envisioned herself as a WWE star, she joined the NXT division back in 2015. Since then, she has been on a ride with being a 14-time World Champion, on the road to breaking her father’s record. What do you think of Charlotte Flair’s large portfolio of sports?
