Charlotte earns title match against Naomi on SmackDown Live next week


Did you think Charlotte Flair would come to SmackDown Live and not be thrust into the women’s title picture immediately?

Of course you didn’t.

Sure enough, she opened this week’s episode by demanding a title shot against Naomi post haste. She was told the blue brand is the land of opportunity, yes, but one has to earn said opportunity. So she was booked in a singles match against the champion, non-title, of course, with the stipulation that a victory would earn her a crack at the crown next week.

They battled through a long, hard fought match that ended when Charlotte took advantage of an opening to hit Natural Selection for the pin, earning her a match for the title in seven days.

Are we looking at The Queen ruling the blue brand like she did the red?
