Backstage News On Charlotte Dropping The Women's Title To Sasha Banks

One possible reason for WWE taking the Women’s Championship off Charlotte before SummerSlam is that she may have requested time off. On Thursday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez reported that Charlotte had asked for time off from the company. Original plans reportedly called for Sasha Banks to win the Women’s Title at SummerSlam.

Dave Meltzer added that he had also heard about Charlotte wanting time off, but that he hasn’t confirmed it.

Ric Flair noted on his latest podcast that Charlotte is expected to have a rematch with Banks at SummerSlam, after having what he called “the greatest women’s match on televison” at Monday’s RAW.
