Charlotte Flair Returns To Action, Asuka Attacks

-

Charlotte Flair returned to the ring for the first time since WrestleMania on the June 23 episode of SmackDown. One week away from Flair challenging Asuka for the WWE Women’s Championship, she faced Lacey Evans.

In a short match and after Evans did her part in taunting the crowd, Flair won after applying the Figure Eight. After the match, Flair still had the submission applied as Asuka attacked her challenger. She left Flair laying in the ring as she retreated up the ramp.

Flair will be challenging Asuka next week in the UK the night before Money in the Bank.

Bianca Belair has been taking her power into her own hands and told Flair last week she will be at ringside during the title match. She wants whoever walks out as champion. This week, Belair is back in Adam Pearce’s office who says she is banned from ringside but promises her she will get her rematch.

There was a match cut from this weeks SmackDown and it was Bayley vs. Shotzi. If Shotzi won then she would have replaced Bayley in the MITB match. Now it seems Bayley will remain in the match.

It has been advertised for this Monday’s Raw on June 26 that all six members of the MITB match will meet in a Summit segment.
