The match was announced on tonight’s Raw, building off of Brie’s surprise win over Charlotte last week.
Nikki Bella may be on the sidelines following her recent neck surgery, but that doesn’t mean Divas Champion Charlotte is safe from the challenge of a Bella. Bella, also a former Divas Champion, will take on the self-proclaimed Genetically Superior Athlete for the butterfly-emblazoned title at WWE Fastlane.
Charlotte, who has taken credit for causing Nikki’s injury, has also added insult to injury by mockingly wishing the Fearless Diva well. The brash comments have not sat well with Nikki’s twin sister, Brie, who made a statement against the titleholder when she pinned Charlotte on the Feb. 1 edition of Raw in a non-title match. In that encounter, Brie used Ric Flair’s attempt to distract the referee against Charlotte, reversing an attempted Figure Eight into an inside cradle.
Brie’s victory has earned her a championship bout at WWE Fastlane, but the WWE Universe can be sure that winning the title is only one of the objectives motivating the challenger. The matters are certainly personal, as well. The hard-kicking, deceptively sly challenger will be sure to shift into Brie Mode at WWE Fastlane in the hope of making Charlotte pay for messing with her family.
Will Brie teach Charlotte a lesson in humility at WWE Fastlane, avenging Nikki and winning the Divas Title in the process? Or will the dirtiest Diva in the game find a way to hold onto her precious championship, by any means necessary?
Fastlane airs live February 21st starting at 8pm ET on the WWE Network.
