as far as the son who died early on, the comment below states that charlotte did not know of his drug abuse problem. she used to party with him, so she knew. " On the main roster, you sink or swim. WWE is a machine that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You either move with it or it moves without you.....What i was most thankful for was that Becky was my travel partner. We navigated the main roster as well as the highways and byways of the United States together. We trained together and worked on honing our skills. Becky was the Thelma to my Louise..we didn't just want to debut; we wanted to make a difference."

The details of Ric Flair's sex life was left out here (instead I think I read them in "Ric Flair: To Be the Man"). That book also covers a lot more, such as his 1975 plane crash, and times in NWA and WCW.
This autobiography, has a bunch of that repeated here by Ric, but now the chapters written either by him, or by his daughter Ashley (WWE's "Charlotte");
about their family, and how both are employed by WWE. History is covered up to the time of the WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view (April 3, 2016, AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas.) The last chapter is by her and she details her feelings, and the moves, during the match there between her, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks.

Details in the book include her abusive boyfriend/husband, and then the NXT training, and times, with other female wrestlers - Becky, Sasha, Emma (Tenille Dashwood), etc.
She doesn't much mention her brother Reid's addiction problem before he died, so it gives the impression she was unaware of it, (or maybe not until he was being taken to rehab clinics by her father?)
Ric writes he was caught surprised by it as his son Reid was athletic and liked to compete and looked healthy.
I have not seen most of Reid's matches, so no idea.
I do know the wrestling dirtsheets and podcasts for years would report every time Reid was in trouble and caught with drugs and made it sound like he was always at death's door, so I guess this book leaves out all that crap , and instead gives us a positive look at what he was really like most of the time.

She mentions she had a breast implant implode when training at NXT. I only knew of the more recent accident and surgery in early 2018.
She never explains when, or why, she had them installed.

The rumour for years is the WWE gives the women superstars a bigger push in the limelight, if they have bigger bosoms, and that explains why some disappear for awhile (example - Billie Kay (aka Jessie McKay) and Peyton Royce (aka KC Cassidy, real name-Cassie McIntosh) have bigger chests now compared to when they wrestled on the indie circuit 10 years ago.
