Charlotte Flair returns to WWE as Asuka’s mystery partner at TLC

UPDATE: Guess who won the tag titles to become a grand slam champion?

There were rumors and reports floating around that perhaps Charlotte Flair would be making her return to WWE at tonight’s TLC pay-per-view (PPV) at the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Sure enough:

Lana was originally booked to be Asuka’s partner in her tag team championship match against Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler but she was written off television with an injury after a victory on Monday Night Raw this past week. It was a bizarre bit of booking, considering Lana has been the focal point of the division on the red brand for the better part of two months while Jax & Baszler, who were originally rumored to be in the title picture, have been doing their thing as tag champs.

Flair’s return instantly injects some much needed life into the division and creates a compelling opponent for literally any one of these women.
