Charlotte Flair is in St. Petersburg, FL, and, at this moment, is scheduled to be Asuka’s partner in tonight’s Women’s Tag Team Title match against the champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at WWE TLC.
She had been considered the favorite for the mystery partner spot since the talk was earlier that she would return at the Royal Rumble to lead to WrestleMania.
They had spent weeks building up Lana & Asuka as a team for tonight before taking Lana out with a worked injury. The storyline had been planned for a few weeks for Lana to be injured, leading to Flair’s return.
Flair has been out of action since June 22nd when they rushed her into a title match with Asuka on Raw and did an injury angle with Jax afterward. She had taken time off for surgery and to pursue some acting gigs, which included recently filming an episode of the remake of Punky Brewster alongside fellow WWE star Alexa Bliss.
