With "The Man" out of the picture, "The Queen" is about to begin her true reign in WWE.
WWE reportedly used a muddled finish in the NXT TakeOver: In Your House women’s triple threat match between Charlotte Flair, Io Shirai and Rhea Ripley to give Shirai the win and title while also keeping Flair from being pinned or submitted.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter at F4WOnline.com, the finish where one wrestler is submitting another while a third goes for a pin attempt at the same time is something WWE has introduced more and more lately, and will continue to do so going forward.
The idea for this match was to take the title off of Flair but still push her as superior, since the goal on the main roster is that she is going to be once again pushed as the top female performer in the company with Becky Lynch now gone for a lengthy absence due to her pregnancy.
In the post-NXT TakeOver: In Your House conference call with Triple H, he teased that the finish of the aforementioned triple-threat women's NXT title match at the WWE Network live special was intended to build towards something for Flair over the next several weeks and months.
What that something is remains to be seen, however the promotional materials surrounding Charlotte Flair and all of the talk behind-the-scenes right now indicates that unless something significant happens to change the current plan, "The Queen" is about to begin her true reign as the top female performer in the company.
