Former WWE Writer Supports Charlotte Flair As Smackdown Women’s Champion

A former WWE writer has chimed in as to why he thinks Charlotte Flair is a good choice as the current Smackdown Women’s Champion.

On the December 30th, 2022 edition of Smackdown, there was a surprising title change that took place as Charlotte Flair returned to beat Ronda Rousey in less than one minute to become the Smackdown Women’s Champion again. Flair is now a 14-time Women’s Champion on WWE’s main roster.

While it’s hard to deny the success of Charlotte Flair, there are also some WWE fans that groan at the thought of her having another lengthy title reign. Perhaps this time Flair will be used different since she’s in a babyface role and calling herself “The People’s Queen” sometimes.

Freddie Prinze Jr. is a well-known actor that used to work for WWE as a writer/producer over a decade ago. Prinze was also on AEW Dynamite this past week in Los Angeles, which led to AEW World Champion MJF trashing him during a promo.

During a recent episode of his Wrestling With Freddie podcast, Freddie Prinze explained why Raquel Rodriguez is a woman that could take the Smackdown Women’s Title from Charlotte Flair.

When Raquel Rodriguez comes in, do you want her to get it off someone that’s legit that the company respects so that it means more, or she’s just going to win it off a part-timer? No, put it on Charlotte, and then let Charlotte and Raquel go to WrestleMania, and it will be an awesome match.”

Prinze also addressed how Flair is being used as a babyface for now, but he doesn’t think it will last.

“They’ll only cheer her about a month and then they’ll all turn to boos on her every single title run. Everybody is happy and everybody wins. You don’t want Ronda still with the title, I promise.”

Charlotte Flair appeared backstage on the January 13th episode of Smackdown where she was attacked by Sonya Deville, who wants another title shot even though Flair beat her one week earlier.
