Conflicting Reports On Rhea Ripley Losing NXT Title To Charlotte Flair At WrestleMania



On the second night of WrestleMania 36, Charlotte Flair successfully cemented herself as the record 11-time Women’s Champion by defeating Rhea Ripley to win the NXT Women’s Title for the second time in her career.

As previously reported, WWE wants Flair to appear on NXT to help boost the ratings for the show in the ongoing Wednesday Night Wars with AEW Dynamite which possibly explains the reason why The Queen dethroned The Nightmare this past weekend. However, there’s more to it than that.

PWInsider recently noted that the reason why Ripley lost to Flair on April 5th is simply that her work visa was expiring and she needed to return to Australia.

“Given the current state of the world, there is no known timetable for her return, but she given the different quarantines involved with international travel in each country, there is no real way for her to return in time for this week’s scheduled NXT tapings in Florida, which will cover multiple episodes of the USA Network series.”

However, a conflicting report from Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Forum has led to a certain degree of confusion in the IWC. Per Meltzer, a source high up in WWE has denied the visa report.

“I’m double-checking on this but one person high up just denied that to me. Again, I’m not saying Mike is wrong, in this company the left and right hand rarely know what the other is doing. But the person I checked with would know the creative reason given which was Charlotte to NXT for ratings help.”

“Another person high up said inaccurate and she’s in Orlando right now. Clearly, if she isn’t although supposedly that was just checked, people who need to know don’t know.”

The WWE Universe will get a clear picture once WWE begins its marathon week-long taping. If Ripley is indeed in Orlando, then she clearly has a visa and her loss to Flair clearly points at the fact that WWE indeed wants The Queen to appear on NXT as the face of the women’s division.
