Charlotte Flair is one of the most dominant Superstars in WWE currently. With over a dozen Championship reigns to her name, she is the most successful women in the entire history of the company. Charlotte Flair currently holds the Smackdown Women’s Championship and is in her 13th reign as a World Champion.

Over her tenure on WWE, she has won the Smackdown title as well as the Raw title six times and also the Divas Championship once. Flair has even won the NXT Women’s Championship twice, but these reigns are not counted in her overall World title record. The Queen had even won the Royal Rumble in 2020 and had taken a surprising decision of going after the NXT title instead of the main roster title.

At that time the NXT Women’s Championship was held by Rhea Ripley. At Wrestlemania 36 Night 2, Flair emerged victorious and went on to hold the title for 63 days. But this wasn’t the only feud between them. Over a year later, they collided again – but this time for the Raw Women’s Championship.

At Money in the Bank, Charlotte Flair pinned Rhea Ripley to kick off her 12th reign. But the reign was short lived, with Nikki A.S.H. cashing in her MITB contract. This kicked off a triple threat feud, where Flair once again emerged victorious and began her 13th reign. While on-screen they have feuded often, Flair seems to have immense respect for Rhea Ripley.

The Smackdown Women’s Champion recently appeared for an interview with M. Skye of TV Source Magazine where she discussed about the future of WWE. “I love that girl. I love Rhea. She has grown on me, and I feel like I’ve grown on her. She deserves so much. She is such a great kid, such a hard worker. She has this amazing presence. She picks up things so fast. She is amazing. I believe Rhea and Bianca are the future.”

Charlotte Flair – Rhea Ripley might come face to face at Royal Rumble

Both, Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley haven’t come face to face since Flair’s win at Summerslam 2021. Ripley had formed a Tag Team with Nikki A.S.H. and had even won the Women’s Tag Titles. But now her tag team run has come to an end, and she might be back to the singles competition.

The two Superstars might come to face soon, as they are participating in the Women’s Royal Rumble match. But it is quite unlikely that they would be eliminating each other as Ripley is focused on her feud with Nikki, whereas Flair is occupied with WWE Hall of Famer Lita.
