NXT Champion Rhea Ripley shows up on RAW, lays down WrestleMania 36 challenge for Charlotte Flair

As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, Charlotte Flair came out and talked about her opponent come WrestleMania. Flair, the winner of this year’s Royal Rumble, will get a shot at the Championship of her choosing at WrestleMania 36.

Last week, Flair left the fans guessing after she denied them an answer. This week, Flair said that she’s already held all the gold there is to hold in WWE 10-times over.

She also went on to say that she’s already beaten both Bayley and Becky Lynch. The crowd chanted for “Rhea” and Flair responded to this by saying that she’s got love for NXT and NXT loves her back too.

However, the music hit and out came NXT Champion Rhea Ripley to everyone’s surprise. Ripley headed to the ring and cut a promo about how Flair has beaten both Lynch and Bayley but hasn’t beaten her.

She then went on to point out that she’s beaten Charlotte Flair and that if there’s any championship Flair should challenge for at WrestleMania, then it’s her’s. Flair looked at Ripley with a smile and walked out of the ring without responding to Ripley’s proposition.

Upon reaching the ramp, Flair turned back around and WOOO’d on the mic as Ripley stood tall in the ring with her title in her hands.

    If this happens, if Flair wins, she will have to move to NXT and I really do not see that unless WWE has given her some sort of sweet deal to go back there or are only doing it for a short term.
    If Ripley wins, then it could actually do a lot for her to have bragging rights over beating one of the top WWE womens stars, and in turn could actually help NXT a lot.

    I am not convinced Flair is a big enough name to draw any extra viewers for NXT by being on their roster, but having Ripley beat her could actually make people sit up and take notice, and maybe bring in a few more views, although going on the Survivor Series upswing, whether they can maintain that increase in viewers is debatable.
