WWE held the first night of the 2021 Draft on SmackDown and there were some big picks, including RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair finding herself on the blue brand. It turns out that Fox was adamant about getting The Queen.
According to a report from Wrestling Inc, Fox wanted Charlotte Flair on their network. They specially requested for Flair to be moved to their show.
FOX officials specifically asked for Flair to be brought to SmackDown in the Draft.
Charlotte Flair took out the top female names on SmackDown to close out the show this week. Obviously, she inserted herself on the top of the roster, but that change won’t go into full effect until October 22nd, a day after WWE Crown Jewel.
This is an interesting situation, because Charlotte Flair is still the Raw Women’s Champion on SmackDown. We will have to see what WWE does with Becky Lynch, because odds are the SmackDown Women’s Title will find its way onto the red brand somehow to even things out.
Keep checking back with Ringside News as we continue monitoring this entire situation around the 2021 WWE Draft.
