Bret Hart.

Bret Hart will be in Natalya's corner during her match at Payback

Published 3 Comments

Another title match was confirmed for WWE's Payback pay-per-view on May 1 during last night's edition of Monday Night Raw.

Prior to last night's Raw, we knew Cesaro would be going up against The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship, and Roman Reigns would be defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against AJ Styles at the event as well.

Several more matches have been confirmed for the event, including a Women's Championship match between the current title holder Charlotte, and her challenger, Natalya.

This will be the second time Charlotte will be defending the championship since she won it against Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch in a triple threat match back at WrestleMania 32. She also defended the title last week on Raw against Natalya, but that match finished as a DQ due to outside interference by Ric Flair.

As always, Charlotte's father, The Nature Boy, will be in her corner and he will probably try to help her daughter win the title once more like he did at The Showcase of The Immortals and last week on Raw. However, there will be a special guest in Natalya's corner to stop him from interfering in the match.

Along with the title match announcement, it was also announced that Bret 'The Hitman' Hart will be in the corner of Natalya (his niece) at Payback during the championship bout.

This will be a very interesting sight to see as this will be the first time Hart has appeared in the WWE since he was diagnosed with prostate cancer earlier this year in February. Although there was speculation that he was now cancer-free after a successful operation, the man himself has said he is still being checked up upon every three months until he actually is.

Nevertheless, Bret is likely to get a huge ovation by the WWE Universe at the Allstate Arena in  Rosemont, Illinois. They'll be so glad to see him back with the company, and hopefully, he will play a role in the outcome of this match.

Many fans are annoyed by how many times Ric Flair is getting involved in Charlotte's matches and helping her win. While it is a great heel tactic, some are actually saying it is tarnishing the Women's division because there is no credibility to Charlotte's wins.

A great moment would be to see Bret Hart stop Ric Flair from interfering in the match, and then himself and Natalya put Flair and Charlotte respectively in The Sharpshooter, with both members of the Flair family tapping out at the same time, giving the Hart family the win on the night.

WWE Fans: How would you like to see the Women's Championship match between Charlotte and Natalya unfold? How do you think Ric Flair and Bret Hart will get involved? Have your say and leave a comment below...
