Smackdown kicked off this week focusing on the dream rivalry that will produce a huge matchup at Summerslam. Charlotte Flair arrived at the ring addressing WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus that she was never as great as the audience claims to be. The truth will be out when they will fight out at the biggest event of the summer. She also aired a video package on Trish Stratus after which the legend came out to the ring.
The Smackdown audience gave her a huge pop as she had a face-off with The Queen and assert how Flair wants to be in the spotlight. Trish also quoted the late WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race about how great it is to be under the lights, and Flair wants every bit of it. But it will be a nightmare for her when she faces the greatest of all-time on this Sunday Night. She slapped the taste out of the mouth of Charlotte Flair that appeared to be a straight-up insult before Summerslam.
Last week, WWE confirmed a dream match for all the fans at Summerslam. It will be WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus competing against Charlotte Flair in a match that we never thought of seeing. These two are the absolute bests of their respective generations which means it will be a battle of their pride. It also earned a spot for Flair at Summerslam who did not have a scheduled match, prior to this.

So Charlotte Flair dared to challenge the legendary name to return to competition at Summerslam. The seven-time accepted readily denying months of ring-rust. Like a true heel, Flair continued taunting Trish Stratus with verbal antics over the social media as well as in this week’s WWE Raw. WWE.com questioned whether she was really ready to take on the Greatest of All-Time,
“Charlotte Flair demanded a spot on the SummerSlam card, then went out and forced her way onto the show, challenging WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus to a battle at The Biggest Event of The Summer. With Stratus accepting the challenge, how will these two Superstars prepare for a showdown between generations? Find out on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network!”
As seen on Smackdown, Trish Stratus is still capable of bringing in the A-game that would not allow Charlotte Flair to pick up the win, so easily.
