For the first time in nearly five years, Charlotte Flair will be wrestling on an episode of WWE NXT on Wednesday, February 26, 2020. Flair will go one-on-one with “The EST of NXT,” Bianca Belair.
All through the build-up toward Bianca's NXT TakeOver: Portland Women's Championship match against Rhea Ripley, Charlotte Flair, and Ripley's desire to face her at WrestleMania, seemed to overshadow the opportunity that Bianca had in front of her.
After the match in Portland, once Charlotte officially accepted the challenge of Rhea Ripley, she would then go to the outside and attack Bianca. This prompted Bianca to throw out the challenge to “The Queen,” even vocalizing this challenge at a Milwaukee live event for NXT. Now, Bianca will get her chance to test her mettle against that of the 10-time Women's Champion.
Charlotte Flair returns to the NXT ring to take on Bianca Belair this Wednesday night
Charlotte Flair will wrestle her first match on the black-and-gold brand in more than four years this Wednesday night when she looks to settle the score with Bianca Belair.
Accepting Rhea Ripley’s WrestleMania challenge, Flair attacked The Nightmare immediately following her victory over Belair at NXT TakeOver: Portland. But the NXT Women’s Champion wasn’t the only target of The Queen, who also sent The EST careening into the steel steps before exiting.
Belair, who already felt disrespected after Flair’s last appearance on NXT, responded by commandeering the ring during the match between Kayden Carter and Chelsea Green this past week to call out Charlotte — and she didn’t mince words about her intentions.
The 10-time Women's Champion responded on Twitter.
NXT Women calling out The Queen is apparently the trending thing to do. I would want to face the best too.— Charlotte Flair (@MsCharlotteWWE) February 22, 2020
See you Wednesday. @WWENXT ---- pic.twitter.com/NNprIMSbRZ
A victory would be the biggest feather in Belair’s cap to-date, while Charlotte can send Ripley a message with a win ahead of their WrestleMania showdown.
