This current WWE title holder wasn’t impressed with the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion’s surprise appearance at the Royal Rumble.
That Superstar is former SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. WWE has put more focus on the division in recent years thanks to the Women’s Revolution. We now have two different women’s divisions as well as the title. One division on Monday Night Raw and the other on SmackDown.
Flair has taken the WWE by storm since being called up to the main roster in 2015 during the Women’s Revolution storyline. She has won championships both in NXT and on the main roster. At first, she was portrayed as her real-life personality then she started to come out of her father’s spotlight and become her own person.
Flair, who joined WWE back in 2012, has found success in both NXT and on the main roster. She has held the NXT Women’s, Divas, and Raw Women’s Championships. Now, that she is on SmackDown Live, she is looking to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Flair is still trying to find herself while competing on the blue brand as a babyface. For the majority of her career (including NXT and main roster) she has worked as a heel. However, when WWE decided to trade her to SmackDown Live last year during the Superstar Shakeup, they turned her into a babyface.
As seen at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Wells Fargo Center on the WWE Network, Asuka won the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match.
After the match, Ronda Rousey walked out to the ring and pointed at the WrestleMania 34 sign. She tried to shake Asuka’s hand, but Asuka shoved it away. Rousey shook Stephanie McMahon’s hand at ringside.
Flair decided to have some fun with Rousey on Twitter by posting this shot:
Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson chimed in on Twitter about the post by writing the following:
It’s expected that Rousey with a mystery partner will take on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed tag team match at WrestleMania 34, which is the biggest event of the year for the sports entertainment company.
WrestleMania 34 is set to be held on April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network and is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured on the card.
