The Bella Twins and Charlotte Flair crossed paths early in the career of the Queen. WWE’s Women’s Revolution began with Stephanie McMahon introducing Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and Flair to the main roster, but Flair shone the brightest.

Within a month of debuting, Flair became No. 1 Contender for the Divas Championship. Nikki Bella, the reigning Divas Champion, needed one more week to break the record for the longest reign with the Divas Championship. Flair came close to beating her, but couldn’t after Brie interrupted on her sister’s behalf.

With Nikki’s reign becoming the longest in history, beating her became Flair’s biggest achievement till she entered superstardom. At Night of Champions 2015, Bella lost the title to Flair, who would become the last Divas Champion.

At WrestleMania 32, WWE legend Lita unveiled the WWE Women’s Title and Flair became the first champion.

On Instagram, Flair posted a heartfelt tribute to the women responsible for launching her career. “I can’t emphasize enough on what I learned having the opportunity to face them when I debuted,” she wrote. “They have opened doors for generations to come and I am thankful for the times I was able to be in the ring with both queens.”

Last year, the global pandemic forced WWE to cancel their Hall of Fame ceremony. Last year’s class of inductees was one of the most star-studded with two international superstars and one of the most iconic factions of all time. Alongside the Bella Twins, WCW’s most iconic faction, the nWo entered the WWE Hall of Fame.

Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman aka X-Pac arrived at the ceremony that wasn’t aired anywhere. Two international superstars in the British Bulldog and Japanese legend Jushin Thunder Liger joined them in the Hall of Fame. Liger obviously couldn’t make it for the ceremony, as he’s in Japan.

The British Bulldog’s family, including Davey Boy Smith Jr, were present to accept the honor on behalf of his father.
