Published 03/22/2021, 10:19 PM EDT


Charlotte Flair is the face of the WWE Women’s Division. Her resume speaks volumes about her greatness in the ring, and why she is a Flair! ‘The Queen’ is always a part of a Championship match at WrestleMania, but not this year. Yes, she had challenged Asuka, but it won’t happen anymore, here’s why.

Charlotte Flair tests COVID positive; will miss WrestleMania 37

Three weeks ago on Raw, 11-time Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair challenged her tag team partner, Asuka to a WrestleMania rematch for the Raw Women’s Championship. The ‘Empress of Tomorrow’ did not answer as she was recovering from losing her teeth due to Shayna Baszler’s kick.

However, ‘The Queen‘ has not appeared on WWE TV for two weeks. The WWE Universe was speculating where she could be as WWE removed her from this year’s WrestleMania poster as well. Some speculated that even she had a fallout with WWE and followed suit to leave the company with her boyfriend, Andrade.

All the rumors ended, as Charlotte took to Twitter to share the news of her testing positive for COVID. Rhea Ripley also acknowledged this when she challenged Asuka for a match at WrestleMania 37.

Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre had also tested positive a few months ago, but missed little time. He was out for a couple of weeks but made his return just in time for his match against Goldberg at the 2021 Royal Rumble.

Charlotte Flair, too, could pull off similar shenanigans, but it’s better to be 100% safe and sure before going further, right? If Charlotte recovers just in time for WrestleMania, then we would have her attack whoever wins the Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania.

The reason we’d like to see Charlotte attack whoever is because she does the best work as a heel. Her heel work is unmatched, and it’s been a while since we’ve seen it in ‘The Queen’ especially. We wish Charlotte abundant health and a speedy recovery! Hope to see her back in the ring soon.
