According to a new report by F4WOnline, former Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair is in St. Petersburg, FL, and is scheduled to be Asuka’s partner in tonight’s Women’s Tag Team Title match against the current champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at WWE TLC.
It is being said that Flair had been considered the favorite for Asuka’s mystery partner spot since the talk was that she would return at the Royal Rumble to lead to WrestleMania.
WWE had built up Lana and Asuka as a team for tonight before Lana was taken out with a worked injury. The storyline apparently had been planned for several weeks for Lana to be injured, leading for Flair to make her return.
Flair last appeared on the June 22 episode of Raw where she was written off television with an attack from Nia Jax causing a broken collar bone as he would undergo surgery for what was said to be a legitimate injury.
Flair revealed back in July that her surgery was was for her implants that started to leak causing her some of the worst silicone poisoning he had ever observed. She was given a few choices for surgery and picked the option that would allow her to return the quickest.
