This past Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE, Charlotte was acting rather heelish for someone who is supposed to be a babyface.
There was a backstage segment where she directly blamed SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi for Becky Lynch losing to Natalya earlier in the show. Lynch, however, stepped in to calm everything down.
Nonetheless, this appears to be leading to another match between Flair and Naomi.
On Wrestling Observer Live on Thursday, host Dave Meltzer said there was a lot of opposition behind the scenes on Flair turning babyface. Some WWE officials feel it wasn’t the right time for a turn to take place.
Meltzer further noted that Flair may only remain as a face for a short while before she is eventually turned heel again.
