This challenge follows weeks of tension between the former friends, which exploded when Charlotte attacked Becky after suffering a loss to her on the January 4th episode of Raw.
Charlotte has yet to respond to the challenge, though the match will likely be made official on this Monday’s Raw.
The Royal Rumble airs live January 24th starting at 8pm ET on the WWE Network.
