Backstage News on the Original Royal Rumble Plans + Charlotte Flair’s WrestleMania Match


As seen during Sunday night’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, Charlotte Flair wound up winning the women’s Royal Rumble match. According to sources, Charlotte Flair is expected to face NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 36. There is a very good chance that Charlotte will be appearing on this week’s NXT broadcast to begin the storyline.

As previously reported here on eWn, Shayna Baszler was originally planned to win the women’s Royal Rumble match, but it was changed Sunday afternoon to Charlotte Flair. According to reports, there is some talk that Charlotte was given the win at the Royal Rumble to pay a “debt” to her by WWE. Charlotte has been promised things in WWE and they were never fulfilled.

Vince McMahon was the person who made the change to have Charlotte Flair win the women’s Royal Rumble instead of Shayna Baszler.

WWE WrestleMania 36 takes place on Sunday, April 5th from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
