The WWE NXT return of Charlotte Flair has been announced for next week.
On Saturday evening, WWE announced via their official website and various social media outlets that “The Queen” will make her black-and-gold brand return on Wednesday night’s edition of NXT On USA, facing Bianca Belair in one-on-one action.
Flair will work the Bianca match as her first official match on the WWE NXT brand in quite a while, and to establish herself in front of the weekly NXT On USA audience before her WrestleMania 36 showdown against NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley.
WWE.com released the following announcement confirming the Charlotte Flair vs. Bianca Belair match for this coming Wednesday night’s show at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida:
Charlotte Flair returns to the NXT ring to take on Bianca Belair this Wednesday night
The Queen is coming to NXT to give The EST exactly what she asked for.
Charlotte Flair will wrestle her first match on the black-and-gold brand in more than four years this Wednesday night when she looks to settle the score with Bianca Belair.
Accepting Rhea Ripley’s WrestleMania challenge, Flair attacked The Nightmare immediately following her victory over Belair at NXT TakeOver: Portland. But the NXT Women’s Champion wasn’t the only target of The Queen, who also sent The EST careening into the steel steps before exiting.
Belair, who already felt disrespected after Flair’s last appearance on NXT, responded by commandeering the ring during the match between Kayden Carter and Chelsea Green this past week to call out Charlotte — and she didn’t mince words about her intentions.
The 10-time Women’s Champion responded on Twitter.
NXT Women calling out The Queen is apparently the trending thing to do. I would want to face the best too.

A victory would be the biggest feather in Belair’s cap to-date, while Charlotte can send Ripley a message with a win ahead of their WrestleMania showdown.
