Charlotte Flair has made a bold claim about her legacy, and it involves Ronda Rousey. The Queen is, without a doubt, the most successful female performer in WWE history. Her track record speaks for itself. But to say that her legacy is bigger than that of The Baddest Woman on the Planet is rather braggadocios; even for a Flair.

Ronda Rousey is arguably the Best Female Combat Sportsperson in the World
After all, she was the first women to be inducted to the UFC Hall of Fame. “Rowdy” Ronda is a legitimate fighter with a laundry list of accomplishments that most athletes would give their souls to have.
She was the inaugural UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and had a record-setting 3-year reign with the strap. Rousey racked up 6 successful title defenses and became one of the biggest draws in UFC history. And that’s just her MMA accomplishments.
Ronda Rousey won the Olympic Bronze Medal in Judo at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She has also won 27 medals across various tournaments organized under the International Judo Federation and is a 2x recipient of the Best Female Athlete ESPY.
There’s a lot we haven’t mentioned here, but the point is; Ronda Rousey is one of the greatest Female Athletes in Combat Sport History. But when it comes to the squared circle, Charlotte Flair reigns supreme.

Rousey has only one title reign in WWE
In the world of Sports Entertainment, numbers matter in a different way. Ric Flair is recognized as having the most World Championship Reigns in company history at 16. John Cena tied that number in 2017, after spending 15 years with WWE.
Charlotte Flair has been with the company for less than a decade and she’s already held World Championship Gold 13 times. By contrast, Ronda Rousey has only one title reign WWE; her 231-day run as the Raw Women’s Champion.
When taking those two numbers side by side, you can see why Flair would claim to have a bigger legacy than The Baddest Woman on the Planet. But Ronda Rousey doesn’t need to list off her accolades; they speak for themselves. And come WrestleMania 38, we have a feeling that Charlotte Flair’s legacy might get cut short just a smidge.
