As many of you saw tonight, Ronda Rousey defeated Charlotte Flair to win the SmackDown Women’s Title in an “I Quit” match at WWE WrestleMania Backlash.
It was later noted by WWE that Flair has a fractured radius (broken arm, essentially). This is a storyline reason to write her off. Bryan Alvarez noted during his Backlash recap on the Bryan and Vinny Show that Flair is getting married soon and it appears that she is being written off so that she could have some time off.
Alvarez said, “they claimed that her radius is broken. I’m pretty sure that this whole thing was a way to write Charlotte off TV for quite a while. So Ronda won the title and Charlotte’s gonna get married.” Alvarez joked that the way WWE does things, Charlotte could still show up on TV this week but this is likey it for her for a while.
Flair recently revealed to BT Sports’s Ariel Helwani that her wedding is set for this summer. Flair is engaged to former WWE star/AEW star Andrade El Idolo. As for what is next for Rousey, there have been no hints given yet on who she will be feuding with next. That answer will likely come this Friday night on SmackDown.
