Superstars furious over Charlotte Flair’s SmackDown title victory

Charlotte Flair captured the SmackDown Women’s title this past week on SmackDown after she successfully defeated Asuka in an impromptu title match.

This didn’t sit well with the majority of fans and it seems like a few active performers aren’t too pleased with this either. Becky Lynch, Flair’s former best friend, and current arch-nemesis decided to comment on this situation through Twitter.

For those who’ve forgotten, Asuka defeated Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair last year at TLC to become the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion. She again defeated Lynch at the Royal Rumble event in a singles match for the title.

Lynch said that Flair did less to earn this title shot than the one she’s getting at WrestleMania for the RAW Women’s Championship and that the Empress of Tomorrow deserves a lot better.

Furthermore, a Fatal 4-Way match between Naomi, Sonya Deville, Carmella and Mandy Rose was scheduled to take place on the show to determine Asuka’s opponent for WrestleMania. However, that match was cancelled and replaced by this match.

The competitors involved in the nixed match-up expressed their displeasure through Twitter:


  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Ronda Rousey contract doesn’t end to 2021 so she not going anywhere.

  • Soulshroude

    Again… only the WWe backstage officials really care about Charlotte. Not many within the Universe share the same sentiment for the silver spooned bimbo. Who gets everything she wants because of her last name.

  • Brian

    That’s what doesn’t make sense. If Rousey’s leaving, they could easily have Becky or Charlotte pin the other, and Rousey leaves without ever being pinned, and keeps her ‘undefeated’ streak, if she returns.

  • Keith Learmonth

    I wouldn’t read anything into Becky’s tweets. She’s been tweeting in character, pretending not to be in character for weeks now.

    The fact you guys keep reporting it is exactly what WWE wants. They want you to believe there’s “Legit heat” in the women’s locker room, to draw eyes to the product, and they know that what they’re doing has the media, including the dirt sheets, talking.

    Ronda is supposed to be gone after Mania, so they have to get the belt off of her. Putting it on Charlotte to end the show would be a disaster. I don’t know how well this will end long term.

  • Brian

    So who’s title will be on the line at Wrestlemania? Will it be whomever gets pinned loses their title? Of course that’s assuming that Becky Lynch doesn’t get pinned?
