Charlotte Flair made her WWE return on the December 30 edition of SmackDown, immediately reclaiming the blue brand’s women’s championship by defeating Ronda Rousey. Flair is currently a 14-time champion in the company, not including her two NXT reigns, and is set to square off again The Eradicator Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania following her Royal Rumble win.
Yet, there are competitors which The Queen is still yet to battle. Speaking to Daytona Beach News-Journal, Charlotte was asked about those on the roster whom she would still like to step into the ring with.
“Well, I’ve never had a program with (Raw women’s champion) Bianca (Belair). It would have to be her,”-Charlotte Flair.
Though, logically, a feud between the two right now would feature both of the top women’s championships. Over the past year, we’ve seen Roman Reigns carry both the WWE and Universal titles following a program with then-WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, but a title unification is something that doesn’t interest Charlotte as of now.
“I don’t recommend a unification program because I feel that would mean less opportunities for the women. It was cool for one of the girls to have both titles at one time, but it takes a lot of spots away.”-Charlotte Flair.
This suggests that fans will have to wait a little longer to see The EST and The Queen clash, though Belair has previously stated that Flair is the last of the four horsewomen that she needs to defeat. As aforementioned, Charlotte will defend her hold against Rhea Ripley at ‘Mania, while Belair will battle Asuka over the Raw Women’s Championship on The Grandest Stage Of Them All.
As always, we’ll aim to update you on the future’s of both Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair as soon as we hear more.
