Ric Flair surprises Charlotte after her WWE SmackDown title victory

Ric Flair surprises Charlotte after her WWE SmackDown title victory

With just days remaining before Survivor Series, Charlotte won the Smackdown Women's title, defeating Natalya with the figure eight after escaping the sharpshooter.

Scripted or not, it was clearly an emotional moment for the pair, who cried as they celebrated in front of the audience in Flair's hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. Above is video from that segment.

A new champion crowed on Smackdown tonight changes a match for Survivor Series this Sunday.

- Paul Heyman tweeted the following in response to tonight's SmackDown segment with WWE Champion AJ Styles and SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan, who acted as AJ's "personal advocate" to mock Heyman.

Now, Flair will go on to face Alexa Bliss in a singles match at Survivor Series while Natalya is set to join the five women team that will take on the Raw women in the elimination match. First up Baron Corbin managed to successfully defend his United States Championship meaning that his bout against The Miz this weekend remains the same.

And, just as Charlotte was about to make her exit down the ramp, Nature Boy himself arrived to celebrate with his daughter in one of the most emotional WWE moments of the year. This is the one where fans expected a change and the victor would not only be the brand's champion but would also go on to face Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series.
