Why Charlotte Flair might not beat Natalya for SmackDown Women's title this week


The biggest match taking place on WWE's blue brand this week is the SmackDown Women's Championship match between Natalya and Charlotte Flair.

Nattie By Nature is currently scheduled to face off against Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss in a non-title Champion vs Champion match at Survivor Series on November 19, but those plans could all change if she doesn't win her match on Tuesday night.

If The Queen wins their match on SmackDown Live, not only will she become the new SmackDown Women's Champion, but she will also take Natalya's place at Survivor Series while most likely removing herself from the women's traditional Survivor Series match.

However, if speculation is to be believed, Charlotte will not be winning the SmackDown Women's Championship on Tuesday night, and therefore, she will not be facing Alexa Bliss in a Champion vs Champion match at Survivor Series.

According to Cageside Seats, The Queen will not be defeating the current SmackDown Women's Champion later this week because WWE is saving that eventual match outcome for a later date. That later date being Starrcade on November 25, as it will be quite significant.

Just over a week ago, Charlotte revealed in an interview that her father, Ric Flair, would be at WWE's upcoming Starrcade show at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina on a week on Saturday.

This will be The Nature Boy's first WWE appearance since he appeared at ringside during the WWE Championship match between Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton at Money in the Bank earlier this year. It will also be his first WWE appearance since his health scare which hospitalized him during the summer.

It will be a great moment for Ric to see his daughter win the SmackDown Women's Championship once more after the summer he's been through, especially if it happens at Starrcade next week. Unfortunately for WWE fans though, unless they're attending Starrcade, they won't be able to see this moment happen live, as the show isn't being broadcasted on the WWE Network.

The reason why WWE will not be broadcasting Starrcade is that they think the additional costs of having to broadcast the show will not increase their network subscriber count, and therefore it wouldn't be worth their while.

Nevertheless, like house shows in the past, WWE is bound to post videos and photos of the event on their social media accounts, so fans that don't attend the show live still won't miss the possible awesome moment of Charlotte celebrating a championship win with Ric Flair.
