Backstage News on Why Charlotte Flair Won The NXT Women’s Title, Plans For Women’s Division



Charlotte Flair defeated young sensation Rhea Ripley to win her second NXT Women’s Championship. Flair, who has won a record ten titles on the main roster, won the Royal Rumble earlier this year and chose to challenge the Australian star.

Flair is currently a part of the RAW roster, and winning the title will automatically entitle her to appear on Wednesday nights on NXT. Flair spoke to talkSPORT earlier today and said she was excited to defend her titles across all the three divisions of WWE.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE plans to use Charlotte Flair to help NXT win the Wednesday Night Wars against All Elite Wrestling. After triumphing during Survivor Series last year, NXT has struggled to retain the viewership and has consistently lost against Dynamite in the ratings war.

With a huge name as Flair on Wednesday nights, WWE will look to overpower the rival promotion, who’s women’s division has faced criticism for a long time due to the lack of top stars. NXT, on the other hand, has a stacked women’s roster with the likes of Ripley, Io Shirai, Candice LeRae, and now Charlotte Flair.

Meltzer added that Flair will work RAW as well as NXT shows going forward, as WWE can afford to have her on both the shows right now due to the lack of house-shows and other workloads.

“The plan right now is she’s gonna work both. With no house shows and no nothing it’s not like you’re over-taxing someone for making them work twice a week.”

The other updates on the Women’s Division included a possible rematch for Shayna Baszler against Becky Lynch, a Sasha Banks-Bayley feud leading up to SummerSlam and a promotion for Bianca Belair onto the main roster.

Belair was a part of the Flair-Ripley rivalry leading up to WrestleMania, and she also helped her husband Montez Ford to defend the tag-team championships at the event.
