NXT champion Rhea Ripley showed up on Monday Night Raw last night and reminded Charlotte Flair that she’s the only one that doesn’t have a win over her as Flair contemplated on which title to go after at WrestleMania 36.
It was Ripley who then issued the challenge to Flair for WrestleMania rather than the other way round, with the NXT title on the line. Flair, who is a former NXT Women’s champion herself, did not answer the challenge and left.
But it looks like it will not take long to find out what Flair will do as she will be going to NXT tomorrow night on USA Network to give her answer. Flair was rumored to be doing this last week but WWE is now confirming that the multi-time Raw and Smackdown Women’s champion will appear on NXT.
This will be the first time that a Royal Rumble winner will choose a title from the NXT brand for WrestleMania and the first time that any NXT title would be defended at WrestleMania.
