Last night, we were scheduled to see two championship matches on Smackdown Live. The first one was the United States Championship match between Baron Corbin and Sin Cara whereas the second one was for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Charlotte Flair locked horns in a singles match against Natalya Neidhart.
This is a classic rivalry that has been going on for almost three years now. The moment Charlotte stepped into the WWE in NXT, the Flair vs Hart feud was renewed and had no intentions to stop. So, a rematch from Hell in a Cell was set up in Charlotte, North Carolina, i.e. the hometown of the Queen.
The match was quite an entertaining affair with both the competitors taking each other to their limit. Numerous counter-attacks were reserved by both the competitors to make it worth a watch. This pointed out how well these two know each other and share a great chemistry.

Natalya was able to gain the upper hand by delivering a powerbomb on the turnbuckle and then lock in the Sharp-shooter on Charlotte. But, The Queen managed to kick out of the clutch and came back with a big boot. She further locked in the Figure Eight lock forcing Nattie to tap out. This earned Charlotte her fifth Women’s Championship in the WWE.
