Charlotte Flair’s numerous championship victories in WWE have elicited mixed reactions from fans, with some feeling she is overly utilized. Despite this, her unparalleled in-ring abilities are widely recognized and undeniable. She is set for a massive WrestleMania 39 match and it seems Ric Flair believes it should main event the Show of Shows.
On the December 30th episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Ronda Rousey lost the Smackdown Women’s Championship to Charlotte Flair in a surprising outcome. This resulted in a controversial return for The Queen.
Rhea Ripley won the Women’s Royal Rumble match and earned the right to challenge for a main event title of her choosing. As seen on RAW this week, The Eradicator chose Charlotte Flair as her WrestleMania 39 opponent.
While speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair talked about Ripley challenging Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39. Flair believes that it should main event WrestleMania 39.
”It’s gotta be one of the main events. It’s gonna be spectacular. Rhea has matured so much. That match they had in front of no people a couple years ago was fantastic. I can only imagine, I mean ‘The Queen’ is in a place where… she just plain and simply is the best worker in the business, in the company. I’m sure that she and Rhea will tear the joint down. If I were the guys, I wouldn’t want to follow them, and I would be hope that they’d be on last.
As much as I enjoy that group she’s with, which worked out really nice, I’m really happy that she’s going out on her own now again. I like that. Win, lose, or draw, I don’t know whether she’ll stay with that group or not, but she is such a great singles attraction. She and ‘The Queen’ will just tear it down. I’m so excited for both of them.”
The upcoming match will be the first ever one-on-one women’s rematch in WrestleMania history. Back in 2020, Charlotte won the Royal Rumble and defeated Ripley to win the NXT Championship at WrestleMania 36. We’ll have to see if Ripley will be able to exact revenge on Flair for her defeat three years ago.
