WWE NXT’s Charlotte Flair has used Spider Rocket’s (Heavy Rockin’ song) “GOING DOWN” as her entrance music when she makes her way to the ring. See video below.

She may not fly jets or ride limousines, but Charlotte — daughter of 16-time World Champion Ric Flair — may be destined for greatness. A latecomer to the industry her father helped revolutionize, Charlotte has kickstarted her entrance into her father’s profession and made a name for herself in NXT in very short order.

Displaying a level of athleticism that few divas in history can match, Charlotte has captured the attention of the NXT Universe in short order. What the future holds for Charlotte is anyone’s guess, but if history is any indicator, it will include nothing but the highest accolades and respect. The world will know her name soon enough.

Going Down is from the critically acclaimed Spider Rockets studio album from 2012: Bitten.

As Reported on the KISS Facebook:

Former NFL Quarterback and Heisman Trophy Finalist Brings Talent to Los Angeles as Newest Player Acquired by LA KISS

The LA KISS announced today they have signed prolific quarterback and Southern California native, Colt Brennan. A former 2007 Heisman Trophy finalist with the University of Hawaii, Brennan holds the NCAA record for most touchdown passes in a single season (58) and will utilize his National Football League (NFL) experience with the Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders to add veteran leadership and electrifying play to the newest expansion team in the Arena Football League (AFL).

“We’re thrilled to bring such a dynamic and successful Quarterback to our team and to our fans,” stated Schuyler Hoversten, President of LA KISS. “Having a local success story in a key position is great for our fans and I know they’ll enjoy watching him play this season at Honda Center.”

Brennan (6’3” – 215 lbs) began his career playing high school football for Orange County powerhouse, Mater Dei High School, before playing at the collegiate level for the University of Hawaii. At Hawaii Brennan achieved national recognition while leading his team to a 12-0 record and 2007 Sugar Bowl appearance on the back of his record-setting season. He finished the year with an NCAA Division I record 58 touchdown passes and 70.4 pass completion percentage (along with 29 other Division I records) finishing third in the Heisman vote. He was also named the WAC Offensive Player of the Year and awarded First-Team All-WAC honors (for the second straight season).

He was selected in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins and went on to lead the league in touchdown passes during the preseason. Over the next few years, Brennan spent time with the Redskins and Oakland Raiders before taking time off to rehab his injuries. He now joins the LA KISS as he hopes to rejuvenate his career and bring an unheralded level of excitement to the AFL and its fans.

“It’s not often you get to add a player with Brennan’s impressive combination of elite skill and veteran maturity, and we are excited to see the new dynamic he brings to the team,” says Bob McMillen, Head Coach for LA KISS. “Whether it’s through his play on the field or his leadership in the locker room, we know he will make a positive impact from day one.”

Brennan’s electric style of play, which enabled him to achieve such record-breaking levels of success throughout his career, will be the perfect fit for LA KISS and the AFL. With his addition to the team, fans can expect to witness the most thrilling form of sports entertainment around.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to get back on the field and play football for the LA Kiss,” Brennan said. “I’m looking forward to coming home and playing in front of my family and friends.”
