Charlotte Flair In-Ring Promo:
Charlotte starts a Becky chant. It’s been her destiny to be in this match. Her heart breaks for Becky, but it really does not. Charlotte thought Becky wasn’t dumb enough to get suspended. She dropped the ball before Survivor Series. Who did Becky choose when she got hurt? She chose Charlotte so the myth of The Man could continue. Charlotte is the backbone of this division and the franchise player. Charlotte is a winner. If you think that she’s Mr. McMahon’s favorite, that’s not the case. He chose her because it was a smart business decision. He chose a future Hall of Famer over someone who had a few good months.
The main event of WrestleMania is the biggest match of the year and you’re not going to waste it on a flash in the pan like Becky Lynch. You might not like the decision, but Wrestle,ania will be like every other pay per view that she main evented. You will be standing on your feet chanting, This Is Awesome!! Toledo you can boo Charlotte now, you’re welcome. Charlotte wants to dedicate her history making victory to her best friend, Becky Lynch. Charlotte has a front row ticket for Ronda Rousey’s match at Elimination Chamber. Maybe we will have a new champion and she will have a new WrestleMania opponent. Who knows? Charlotte proceeds to the Toledo crowd to be quiet.
