In a sitdown with media after the show, Triple H revealed that Charlotte’s NXT challenge came out of Vince and the main roster rather than NXT Creative. “All these things that you’ve sort of seen before and you’re looking to get fresh and building new and I think you see that with Shayna Baszler going after Becky Lynch and you see that in different ways on SmackDown with where they’re going. So this was a way of Charlotte Flair needing to be in that big epic role. I think it really had nothing more to do with that.”
Will the Australian champion try to retaliate for last night’s sneak attack? Or will Rhea have a more dignified response for the Queen? We’ll find out in just a few short hours.
