Flair is currently the Raw Women’s Champion. So, to see the Raw Women’s Champion getting drafted to SmackDown raised a few eyebrows. Flair was the third pick in the first round of the draft.

However, there are still a lot of questions to be answered. With Charlotte now in the SmackDown roster, what will happen to the Raw Women’s Championship? How will it get back to the red brand of WWE? However, for now, there have been no reports as to what the WWE has planned for Flair and the RAW Women’s Championship.

This situation is looking really complex now. But things might get simplified when we head to RAW for the Night Two of the WWE Draft 2021.
