On the latest episode of SmackDown, Charlotte was cutting a promo for her WrestleMania match. But soon Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio interrupted her. The exchange of words between WrestleMania opponents quickly heated up, and an intense brawl broke out. WWE Universe was thrilled to see the rivalry gain much-needed momentum just weeks before WrestleMania.
Rhea Ripley began mocking The Queen, who was just taking in all the trash talk. She said, “You are staring at me without an ounce of fear, and to be frank with you, that pisses me off . I want. Hell, I need it”
When Rhea was finished with her threat, Dominik also mocked Charlotte and distracted her. The Eradicator took advantage of the opportunity and landed a nasty hit on Charlotte. Ripley and Dominik left the ring laughing at the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Charlotte didn’t hesitate to retaliate. She quickly went outside the ring and ambushed Rhea. They both brawled outside the ring, and a few referees had to step in to control the heat. While both the ladies were raging at each other, even the referees couldn’t control them. Even the security got involved and tried to pull them away. But in the high-tempered fight, Flair kicked a guard as well.
Flair was in no mood to stop. She took on Ripley, one of the security guards, and even a referee. She jumped on Rhea from the table, taking the Eradicator and security out as well.
Looking at the fierce toll they took on each other, fans started tweeting their reaction. The fight that took place just during the trash-talking had the fans hyped up for the real match that’s about to happen in WrestleMania 39.
