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.
