Charlotte to answer Rhea Ripley's challenge on NXT Wednesday


Former nine-time WWE women's champion Charlotte Flair is heading to Full Sail University Wednesday to answer Rhea Ripley's WrestleMania challenge.

The current NXT women's champion appeared on Raw Monday to challenge Flair for the year's biggest show, putting her title on the line. Flair didn't answer Ripley, leaving the ring. It was announced later on the show that she will give her answer live Wednesday instead.

Flair earned the right to call her title shot after winning the women's Royal Rumble. She didn't give an answer on last week's Raw, saying she needed more time to think through her decision. Ripley appeared Monday to help her make it, referring back to the Survivor Series when NXT won their elimination match.

Flair is a former NXT women's champion, having held the title once in 2014 through 2015 before being called up to the main roster. Ripley won the title in mid-December by defeating Shayna Baszler.
