Charlotte Flair is the new SmackDown Women's Champion after defeating Asuka in an impromptu title match on last night's SmackDown Live.
Just 12 days before WrestleMania, Flair captured a historic eighth women's championship with a submission victory over The Empress of Tomorrow.
After having the validity of her place in the main event Mania match questioned by 2019 Women's Royal Rumble winner Becky Lynch, Charlotte marched to the ring insisting she would more than justify her place in the triple threat.
The announcement of a title match against Asuka shocked even the commentators, but a bigger shock was still to come as Flair locked her in the Figure Eight and forced her to submit & relinquish her championship.
Some are now speculating whether the showdown between Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey, SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch could now become a title unification match.
Logistically this would seem to make sense, WWE's women's division is highly talented but struggles to present credible challengers for all champions now the Women's Tag Team titles have been added to the mix.
Regardless, Flair is the new women's champ on the blue brand, and Asuka seems destined for the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal.
