She may not fly jets or ride limousines, but Charlotte — daughter of 16-time World Champion Ric Flair — may be destined for greatness. A latecomer to the industry her father helped revolutionize, Charlotte has kickstarted her entrance into her father’s profession and made a name for herself in NXT in very short order.
Displaying a level of athleticism that few divas in history can match, Charlotte has captured the attention of the NXT Universe in short order. With her father watching on, Charlotte defeated Natalya at NXT Takeover to win an eight-Diva tournament and become the new NXT Women’s Champion! More?
“Speaking of Flair, his daughter Charlotte in NXT is special and is the best new, female in ring talent the WWE has trained in years. She’s the type of talent that a serious, women’s division, if that was desired, can be built around.”
Bayley defeated Alexa Bliss. After the match, Bayley asked Charlotte to come out to the ring and asked for a rematch from Takeover. Charlotte said that Bayley had earned her respect and she’d get another shot, but warned that the second verse would be the same as the first. Charlotte says “see ya next week kid”.
Bayley makes her way to the ring to talk to Renee Young. Renee asks Bayley how she feels. She says that she thought she should have won. She feels like she let down a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean it is going to stop her. Charlotte is a great champion and she would love another chance at the title and to win at Full Sail. This is one of the coolest experiences of her life. We look at some of the highlights from the match and Sasha Banks involvement after the match. Renee asks Bayley what it felt like to be out here for this show and be a role model for so many girls. Bayley starts to cry and she says that there is a little girl who was crying after she lost. Bayley says that is who she is going to fight for when she beats Charlotte. She is coming after Sasha too after what happened tonight.
Charlotte makes her way to the ring. Charlotte says that she doesn’t know why it was a surprise that Bayley lost. She tells Bayley that she has her respect and that she is proud of her. Renee brings up a rematch. Bayley says that she respects Charlotte and she is glad that she showed Charlotte that she has to respect her. She hopes that they will still have the same respect when she beats her for the title. Charlotte tells Bayley that she respects her but not to be crazy.
Sasha Banks comes out she has something to say. She asks Charlotte if she thinks this is over. It is only just begun. She says that the Women’s Championship will be around her waist and you can take that to the bank. She calls Charlotte sweetheart. Bayley jumps in and she says that this is not about Sasha because she beat her twice. Charlotte tells Sasha to shut up. Sasha says that she said what she had to say and she leaves.
Charlotte wants to start the match with a handshake but Bayley goes ahead and starts the fight, driving Charlotte back into the corner. Charlotte powers back and takes control for a short stretch but Bayley comes back with a flurry of impressive moves, even trying for a pinfall. Charlotte is just too powerful though, working her into the figure four headlock. She keeps up the heavy offense, putting Bayley into a corner and laying into her with a batch of kicks. Bayley resists but Charlotte works her down on to the mat again. She flings Bayley around by the cranium after locking in the figure four headlock again. It’s starting to look like this isn’t Bayley’s night but she comes back once again, rolling Charlotte into a cradle and almost getting a pin. She rolls the champ up again a short time later but it’s another near fall.
Charlotte looks confident but annoyed as the women begin to duke it out in the middle of the ring. The champ looks to land a moonsault but Bayley puts the kibosh on that plan, turning it into an opportunity to flip Charlotte on to the canvas. Both women are down as the ref starts the count and Bayley crawls into position for the pin but Charlotte kicks out again. After some more fighting, Bayley hits her head on the bottom turnbuckle and she’s stunned for the moment. Charlotte hits a moonsault and goes for the pin but Bayley kicks out. The women are face to face for a compelling moment and then Charlotte hits the natural selection and gets the pin.
After the match, Sasha Banks comes out and starts attacking Bayley. Charlotte watches it on the screen, but goes back to the ring and throws Sasha to the ground. She shows Bayley a sign of respect, then holds the title up and glares at Sasha Banks, who retreats up the ramp.
They first went to the NXT Women’s Championship match between Charlotte and Bayley. The video package began at the post-show of the first Takeover where the live crowd chanted for Bayley when Charlotte asked who her next challenger should be. They did a personality profile for Bayley to the Always Sunny in Philadelphia music and portrayed her as quirky, but likeable and capable. Soundbytes from a Bayley interview played over it and she worked herself to tears talking about how much it means to be where she is. They then went to Charlotte’s interview where she mocks Bayley for crying.
Back at the booth, Sasha Banks joined the team. Sasha claimed to have taught Charlotte everything she knows, but Albert made the counter-point that Bayley has beaten Sasha twice so if that’s the case, it doesn’t bode well for Charlotte. Alex Riley suggested that Sasha might be jealous of Charlotte and she went off on him. She got in his face and cut a promo on him about how the NXT Women’s Championship will end up around her waist.
