A few hours ago we let you know that during the last episode of SmackDown, Ronda Rousey publicly challenged her current rival Charlotte Flair in an I Quit Match for WrestleMania Backlash, but The Queen flatly refused in the episode, leaving us pending to see if it really could happen.
WrestleMania Backlash 2022 is WWE's next premium live event following their biggest show of the year. The Backlash event first premiered in 1999 and continued to be a yearly event until 2009. In 2016, it was restarted but was rebranded last year in 2021.
Great news for WrestleMania Backlash
Instead of Backlash, it is now called WrestleMania Backlash. Now, however, Charlotte can no longer hold back, as WWE management has made it official: “At WrestleMania Backlash, Ronda Rousey will try to make Charlotte Flair scream" I Quit "when she challenges her for the SmackDown Women’s Title in a highly anticipated rematch.
Despite the fact that Rousey made Flair surrender at Wrestlemania, she did not win the title due to the referee being knocked out when it happened. Though Flair was able to clinch a win, Rousey returned to SmackDown the following Friday and wasted little time challenging The Opportunity to an "I Quit" match.
In response to the bold challenge, Flair declined and told The Rowdy One to go to the back of the line. Not to be outdone though, The Baddest Woman on the Planet has insisted that the rematch will happen and that Charlotte will scream "no" when she turns the title holder's arm back.
She later petitioned for a rematch, and WWE Management made it official on WWE Talking Smack. Don't miss all the action from WrestleMania Backlash, live-streamed Sunday, May 8, at 8 am ET / 5 PT on Peacock in the US and WWE Network everywhere." After their match at Wrestlemania 38, Charlotte said, “I was willing to do anything to take the win.
This is my show. I am the queen of the women's division and no one can ever take this status away from me. I'm Miss WrestleMania. Ronda Rousey thought she would come out of AT&T Stadium with the title, but she was very wrong.
It was known that I would do everything possible to win. I don't care how I did it. I won and I'm still the SmackDown champion." With Roman Reigns unifying the WWE and Universal Championships, Bianca Belair defeating Becky Lynch, and Ronda Rousey losing to Charlotte Flair, there are bound to be several interesting plots heading into the event.
