They took some time getting here. With so many talented wrestlers on the WWE roster, it makes sense that there are going to be some issues at some point. Eventually some people are going to rub each other the wrong way, but it can be even worse if one person rubs several the wrong way. That seems to be the case now, and it has been building for a long time.
Last week, a story emerged about a backstage altercation between Becky Lynch and Charlotte. The issue began when Charlotte literally dropped the Raw Women’s Title as she handed it to Becky Lynch, which Lynch believed made her look bad. This caused a backstage backlash against Charlotte, but now we know a bit more about how bad things have been getting.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the backstage heat on Charlotte has been building for a long time. It is said to be several little things together, including Charlotte wrestling as a heel but doing babyface moves, such as dives. As a result, babyface women have had issues getting over with the crowd in matches against Charlotte. In addition, Charlotte’s match with Nia Jax broke into an actual fight, with wrestlers taking Jax’s side for standing up to what was seen as bullying. There is no word on what the WWE higher ups think of Charlotte or any potential punishment for her.
Charlotte can still do well with a lot of things. Check out some of her better times in the ring:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that is going to happen at some point and it is not the best situation. Above all else, Charlotte is still one of the top stars in all of WWE and it would not be the best situation to see her having major issues backstage. I can’t imagine her leaving WWE anytime soon, but it might not be the most comfortable relationship for a long time to come.
What do you think of Charlotte? Would WWE ever release her? Let us know in the comments below.
