The Queen, Charlotte Flair, has won a total of 15 singles championships within her career and refers to herself as the most decorated women’s wrestler of all time. The grand slam champion went on to win the 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble and is one of only two women to hold the NXT Women’s Championship on two occasions.
So, what’s next for The Queen as she returns to the blue brand? While we wait, here are my Top 5 Charlotte Flair matches of all time.
