Charlotte Flair stripped down fully naked in a photoshoot for ESPN’s Body Issue.
The WWE star is one of 16 athletes to bare all in a collection of snaps, with Saquon Barkley and Greg Norman also stripping down.
Flair, 32, has revealed how she wants to be an inspiration for young girls — insisting she wants to be seen as an athlete, as opposed to a blond, tall wrestler.
The former six-time world champion also detailed her struggle with her body image after first starting in the WWE, but has stressed looks have nothing to do with success.
“I wish I was more like my character. In character, I am the queen. I am strong. I am confident, sometimes cocky,” Flair told ESPN.
“I’m hard to beat. Out of character, I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a best friend and just the girl next door that likes Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. When I first started in the WWE, I had a really hard time because I didn’t look the part. I had the athleticism, but I didn’t have the extra swag and the glam — what my character Charlotte has become today.
“But when I’m in that ring, I want the audience and little girls and children and adults to see me as the athlete I am, not just a tall blonde that’s a WWE Superstar. No. I am all athlete, and that’s important, that my looks have nothing to do with what I do in the WWE.”
