I would hope there is more to it. We are less than two weeks removed from WrestleMania 37 and that means it is time to start looking back at the show and everything that took place there. It is also interesting to see what did not happen over the two more important nights of the WWE year, as some pretty important names were not around on the show. This includes Charlotte, and now we might know why she was gone.
According to Hugo Savinovich in an interview with Wrestlinginc.com, WWE may have held Charlotte off of the card due to her fiance, Andrade, requesting his release from WWE just before WrestleMania. Charlotte had appeared on WWE TV just over a month before the show and challenged Asuka for a Raw Women’s Title match, but never returned to follow up. Rhea Ripley took Asuka’s place, but Charlotte’s absence got a little more weird.
Following Andrade’s release, he revealed that Charlotte had been told she was pregnant by a WWE doctor. This was not the case, as Charlotte took several home pregnancy tests, all of which came back negative. She was given a clean bill of health prior to WrestleMania but still did not come back in time for the show. Instead, Charlotte returned the following night on Monday Night Raw.
WrestleMania missed Charlotte. Check out what the show did not have:
Opinion: I really hope that this is not the case, but at the same time, I can’t say I would be surprised if it was true. WWE has been a lot more petty about things that are nowhere near as serious and it would not surprise me at all to see them hold Charlotte off of WrestleMania just to teach her a lesson. The company would make money off of WrestleMania if she was not there anyway, so why not put her through this?
At the end of the day, this very well may be the case and the only people who are hurt by this are the fans and Charlotte. She does not get to be on the show and fans do not get to see one of the best in the world today. I’m sure WWE felt they had some kind of a point to prove, even if it was something that Charlotte was only associated with rather than doing anything herself. What a WrestleMania moment.
