Flair even expressed a scare of not being able to make it at Money in the Bank for her title match against Rhea Ripley. It all seemed real in the beginning. However, it was all just top-notch drama from the ‘Genetically-Superior’ one. The Raw Women’s Champion busted it all too well!

Anything Charlotte Flair does, WWE Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley can do better

For weeks we have seen Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley go at it. However, anything that the ‘Queen‘ does, Ripley finds a way to top it. At Hell in a Cell, Ripley pulled out a trick from Charlotte’s bag for the first time when she got herself disqualified.

When Ripley did this at Hell in a Cell, she did lose the match, but not the title. Flair appreciated this, and admitted being impressed by Ripley’s tactics. The following week we then saw a six-woman tag team match which Charlotte, Natalya and Tamina won. But she did not have the last laugh.

The ‘Nightmare‘ left her limping after connecting with a chop block to the knee. WWE later revealed Charlotte Flair would appear on Raw and give an update on her condition. As we all saw, she appeared on crutches. And like recent weeks, the Raw Women’s Champion pulled the rabbit out of Charlotte’s hat again!

Rhea Ripley mocked Charlotte with the crutches. She stood face-to-face and said Charlotte is nothing but a big ‘Drama Queen.’ Ripley smacked the crutch out of Charlotte’s hand and surprisingly, the former Women’s Champion wasn’t injured at all!

The two went for brutal strikes with their respective crutches, but missed every time. Finally, Ripley got one hard smack with a crutch on Flair’s back as she quickly retreated outside. The Raw Women’s Champion stood tall inside the ring, and screamed that she sees right through Charlotte.

Will the familiarity between the two help Ripley get the long-awaited win? Let us know in the comments below!
