Charlotte Flair showed up to SmackDown Live tonight and took the SmackDown Women’s Title off of Asuka. This was the same night when a #1 contender was set to be determined for Asuka’s WrestleMania title match.
It did not happen the way it was promoted which makes us wonder why WWE books anything in advance at this point. Flair is now the SmackDown Women’s Champion which means Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella, and Naomi prepared for an entire week for a match that did not take place.
Each woman had their own replies to this change. Naomi and Carmella seem to be disappointed, but it’s part of the business. On the other hand, Mandy Rose didn’t seem too happy at all.
Putting all equity in the wrong blonde…
Only time will tell how things turn out from this point on. It might make the WrestleMania main even even more interesting. If anything those four will hopefully have their time once again. Tonight it seemed to be all about Charlotte Flair.
