Charlotte Flair has huge backstage heat in WWE after pulling that stunt on SmackDown. WWE actually edited the part where she dropped the RAW Women’s Title from their replay on Saturday night. That should tell fans that the company doesn’t want them seeing what happened. This is an interesting situation, especially since Charlotte Flair could always end up in AEW.
We previously reported that Charlotte Flair has years left in her WWE deal. AEW will have to wait until she is no longer contractually bound by Vince McMahon’s company. On that note, Flair also disrespected McMahon after that controversial segment on SmackDown.
Dave Meltzer discussed this situation during Wrestling Observer Radio. He proposed that they are not going to fire Flair, but a suspension is always a possibility. In the end, it is up to what Vince McMahon wants to do in the situation.
As far as what’s gonna happen to [Flair] I mean they’ll make a ruling. They’ll either suspend her or they won’t. It’s a weird situation, because they can fire her, but if they do then she’s going to AEW and they don’t want that — or maybe they do want that, but the impression I got is that they don’t want that. So, I don’t know how it’s going to be handled they could suspend her or have her apologize, who knows? My impression is that Andrade’s tweet was regarding her.’
It was also said that Flair “was backstage saying it was an accident, nobody believed it and yeah, she was escorted from the building.”
We’ll have to see what they end up doing in this situation. It is certainly an interesting one with a lot of variables at play, including All Elite Wrestling. If WWE suspends Flair for this infraction then that could also send another message to the locker room, because a majority of people in the company are also standing behind Becky Lynch in this scenario.
