Back at SummerSlam, when she won the SmackDown Women’s title and The Man was born, many fans really wanted Charlotte Flair to turn heel.
She didn’t then, but she’s been leaning into the role more and more ever since. And with Vince McMahon suspending Becky Lynch on Raw last night (Feb. 11) and introducing the Queen as his hand-picked replacement to challenge Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35, a Flair is one of wrestling’s top villains again.
Honestly, it just feels right.
Seems like Charlotte might agree with that. At least if her social media is any guide, seeing as she quickly jumped unambiguously back into the role there…
Wow, I didn’t realize that so many of you didn’t want me in the match. Taking that into account, I’ll be asking management to remove me effectively immediately.
I could not possibly care less what you think

There was also a gloating photo which could technically be read either way…
And a quote-tweet of Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin which was meant as a dig at stereotypical wrestling fans everywhere (and which will be cheered by a certain segment of that fanbase who dislikes and/or enjoys mocking the “internet wrestling community”):
Ronda and Becky can jockey for position at the other end of the spectrum. The Queen is evil and loving it.
