Charlotte accepts Rhea Ripley's challenge for WWE WrestleMania 36

Charlotte Flair is officially challenging for Rhea Ripley's NXT Women's Championship at WrestleMania 36.

Charlotte made a surprise appearance at NXT TakeOver: Portland tonight, attacking Ripley after Ripley retained her title against Bianca Belair. Charlotte then got on the microphone and announced that she'll see Ripley at WrestleMania.

After accepting Ripley's challenge, Charlotte laid her out with Natural Selection and posed with Ripley's NXT Women's title belt. Charlotte also threw Belair into the steel steps after leaving the ring.

In storyline, Royal Rumble winner Charlotte could choose to challenge for the Raw, SmackDown, or NXT Women's Championship at WrestleMania. Ripley appeared on Raw earlier this month and challenged Charlotte to choose her. Charlotte was also on NXT that week and was laid out by Ripley and Belair.

On Raw last Monday, Ripley defeated Sarah Logan and then cut a promo saying she wanted an answer from Charlotte. Charlotte pointed out that we didn't even know if Ripley would still be NXT Women's Champion after TakeOver: Portland.

WrestleMania 36 is taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Sunday, April 5.
