Charlotte Flair gets corrected by Rhea Ripley for using a word that was previously banned in WWE

Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley had quite the exchange of words on social media.

This came after Flair had retained the NXT Women’s Title over Io Shirai on Wednesday’s episode of NXT in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University on the USA Network when she used a kendo stick.

After the match, Ripley made her return to NXT television by making the save. WWE teased adding Shirai into the mix and making it a three-way program between the stars for the NXT Women’s Title when Ripley and Shirai were seen arguing backstage.

This marked Ripley’s first appearance on WWE programming since dropping the NXT Women’s Title to Flair at WrestleMania 36 last month.

During the exchange, there was a funny moment where Flair used a term that had been banned for years in WWE, which was “belt.” This is something that Ripley corrected Flair about by noting how it’s a title.

Flair wrote, “Tough loss, but don’t worry, I think I will somehow be ok. p.s. NXT girls: You will get this belt back when I decide I am done here and hand it back to Hunter- and not a second before. [princess emoji],”

Ripley responded, “First of all, it’s a TITLE. Second of all, you’re a spoiled brat.”

It turns out that last April it was reported that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon is okay with using the term “belt” once again.

At the time, it was believed that McMahon and lifted the ban on the term because of Becky Lynch as she was referring to herself as “Becky 2 Belts” when she was the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion at the same time.
