WWE Fastlane 2017 Preview

Raw Women’s Champion Bayley vs. Charlotte Flair

With her Raw Women’s Title loss to Bayley embroiled in controversy, Charlotte Flair has chosen to invoke her rematch clause at WWE Fastlane and will challenge the beloved champion this Sunday, March 5, live on WWE Network.

Bayley defeated the self-proclaimed “genetically superior athlete” to win the title in an instant-classic on the Feb. 13 edition of Raw. But due to the interference of Sasha Banks, who swung the match in Bayley’s favor, the legitimacy of The Huggable One’s victory has been the subject of debate.

Charlotte insists Bayley cannot defeat her one-on-one, without outside assistance. Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon even went so far as to suggest that Sasha might have aided Bayley because The Boss thinks she’d have a better chance of winning the championship from her best friend than of winning it from Charlotte.

Despite the seeds of doubt seemingly sown into her mind, not to mention Charlotte and Stephanie’s demands that she relinquish the title, Bayley remained steadfast, vowing to defend the championship anytime and anyplace, on behalf of the WWE Universe.

Now, both she and Charlotte look ahead to their rematch at WWE Fastlane. Can Bayley vindicate her title reign with a decisive performance against Charlotte? Or will The Queen — who is undefeated in singles matches on WWE pay-per-views — keep her streak intact and regain the Raw Women’s Championship?

Watch WWE Fastlane when it takes over WWE Network live this Sunday, March 5, at 8 ET/5 PT.

NXT TakeOver: R Evolution Preview – December 11, 2014

20141120_EP_LIGHT_takeoverrevolution-match-home-womensNXT Women’s Champion Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks

The careers of NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte and Sasha Banks may have diverged with the splintering of the BFFs, but on Dec. 11 at WWE NXT TakeOver: R Evolution, their paths will intersect in what is sure to be heated and fiercely competitive championship bout.

The self-proclaimed “baddest Diva in NXT,” Sasha has ratcheted up the intensity in recent months, coinciding with her renewed focus on winning the Women’s Championship from her onetime partner in crime. To support her claim, Sasha has made recent examples of Alexa Bliss and Bayley, trouncing both and making them submit to her lethal Bank Statement lung-blower/crossface combination. Bayley, in particular, has suffered at the hands of The Boss, who’s taken up Becky Lynch as her new cohort.

Together, Sasha & Becky — aka, Team B.A.E. (Best At Everything) — have relentlessly bullied NXT’s happy-go-lucky, hug-loving Diva, and the duo’s cruel antics have run afoul of NXT’s premier Diva, Charlotte. The NXT Women’s Champion has taken it upon herself to look out for Bayley and even the odds, when possible.

Declaring herself a genetically superior athlete, Charlotte has been on a roll since winning the NXT Women’s Title at NXT TakeOver in May. Will her luck change when she defends against Sasha on Dec. 11, live on WWE Network? Unlike Charlotte’s previous challengers, Sasha not only has a personal connection with the champion, but she may also have deeper insight into Charlotte’s game plan, given the months they spent together, side by side. Add in the X-factor of Sasha’s new alliance with Becky, and the possibilities are endless.

Watch what happens when the former BFF allies square off with the Women’s Title hanging in the balance at NXT TakeOver: R Evolution, live on WWE Network Thursday, Dec. 11, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

NXT Takeover Preview – September 11, 2014

00026NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte vs. Bayley

From WWE superfan to No. 1 Contender, Bayley is ready to prove she’s more than just a hug-loving, friendly face in the NXT Divas division. She will challenge the no-nonsense former BFF Charlotte for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover on Sept. 11.

Bayley earned one of her biggest victories to date on the Aug. 7 edition of NXT over WWE Diva Eva Marie. After hitting the Belly-to-Bayley Suplex and pinning the “Total Diva,” Bayley said she’s climbing her way to the top of the NXT Divas division. (After all, Bayley has pinned Charlotte in NXT Divas tag team action.) Her victory over Eva Marie didn’t go unnoticed by Charlotte, who wasted no time intimidating Bayley, boldly demanding that her name is never to come out of Bayley’s mouth.

The following week on NXT, Bayley won a No. 1 Contender’s Match, defeating Charlotte’s former BFF Sasha Banks with the Belly-to-Bayley Suplex. Charlotte resorted to her intimidation tactics again, proudly holding up the NXT Women’s Title, sending a clear message to Bayley that she’s not backing down from her Takeover challenge. Then on the Aug. 28 edition of NXT, after Bayley defeated Sasha for a second time, Charlotte got in the ring and refused to shake her Takeover challenger’s hand, stating: “I warned you!”

Charlotte has dominated the NXT Women’s division since her groundbreaking win over former WWE Divas Champion Natalya at NXT Takeover this past May. The daughter of “Nature Boy” Ric Flair has carved her own path, having broken free from her former BFFs Sasha and Summer Rae. Charlotte even allowed “The Boss” Sasha to be attacked by Bayley, and successfully defended her NXT Women’s Title against Summer when the dancing Diva returned to NXT.

Will Charlotte sustain her rule over the NXT Divas division and make Bayley “Bow Down to the Queen” at NXT Takeover? Or will the headband-wearing, pogo-sticking California girl lead the NXT Divas into a more lighthearted era? Watch every NXT Title, including the NXT Women’s Championship, be defended NXT Takeover on Sept. 11, LIVE and only on WWE Network — now available in more than 170 countries around the world!
