Charlotte Flair upsets Trish Stratus in her return match under the WWE banner.
The former WWE RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion beat the WWE Hall of Famer at SummerSlam.
On July 30th episode of SmackDown Live in Memphis, TN, the former WWE Women’s Champion appeared on a special edition of Jerry Lawler’s interview segment, “the King’s Court.”
In this segment, Lawler asked Trish if she ever wishes about coming back to the ring and having that one final match. This led Flair to come out and challenging her to a match, which Stratus accepted.
This marked the first-time ever that these two stars have wrestled each other inside the squared circle.
This comes after it was reported that WWE and Stratus were in talks to have the legendary pro wrestler work at this show. This also marks Stratus’ return to the ring in her hometown and her first match since last October at the Evolution event.
On July 23rd edition of SmackDown Live, Flair hinted on SmackDown Live she would have a match at SummerSlam that would prove she is the greatest of all-time. Stratus noted in interviews leading up to the match that it would be her final contest.
