Charlotte Flair has been at the top of the WWE Smackdown Women’s division for the past several months. Despite being a dominant champion, she has not defended her title for last two months. It happened last time during the Clash of Champions PPV on December 18th in 2017. Since then, she has been involved in a rivalry against The Riott Squad.
It became intense, two weeks ago when the faction’s attack cost her the championship, almost to Carmella.
From that point onwards, the champion is on a mission to put down all three members of the Riott Squad. Already, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan felt the wrath of the Queen with the leader remaining.
Meanwhile, the group members were not happy with the consecutive losses and challenged Charlotte Flair into a huge battle.
Becky Lynch and Naomi got the chances to get aligned with the title-holder to take on all the three members of the Riott Squad as per WWE.com,
“Charlotte Flair’s quest for payback on The Riott Squad will explode next week when the SmackDown Women’s Champion teams up with Becky Lynch and Naomi to battle Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan on SmackDown LIVE. What will happen when these two trios collide in the ring?”
Meanwhile, there might be a big reason owing to which the match was set up. This is probably going to hand over Charlotte Flair, her next challenge for the title confirming a matchup at the Fastlane PPV.
Apparently, the genetically superior athlete might suffer her first pinfall loss after becoming the champion.
At this point, the WWE officials could not let her digesting a loss in a singles match since it would harm her character especially in a time when the Wrestlemania season is approaching.
But, they surely can do the same in a tag team match when chaos breaks out and she gets pinned by virtue of a distraction. This might be going to be the potential outcome of the tag team match on next week’s WWE Smackdown.
It is almost certain that the one from the women’s faction who will get the pinfall win is Ruby Riott by virtue of which she will become the number one contender for the Smackdown women’s championship. This will allow the creative team to make a match official between Ruby and Charlotte at the PPV.
It should the second confirmed match for the PPV after the WWE championship match.
