- This week's WWE NXT main event on the USA Network saw Charlotte Flair win her first match on the brand in 4 years, defeating Bianca Belair. Flair also attacked Belair after the match, then had a staredown with NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley to hype their WrestleMania 36 match. Above is video of the match and below is post-show video of Kat Marino interviewing Flair. Kat asked Flair why she attacked Belair after the match.
"Because I can," Flair said, laughing. "I mean here's the thing - when I was in NXT four years ago I didn't show up on RAW or SmackDown and say, 'Hey, Nikki Bella, I'm gonna face you. Hey, Brie Bella, I'm gonna face you. Hey Alicia Fox and Natalya...' No, I had more respect than that.
"The ladies down here in NXT think they can just come up there, put their bags wherever they want, not shake our hands, come up there and say, 'Oh I'm going to face you.' You're going to put the title that I put on the map, in my face? And then Bianca is going to be a sore loser and say, 'Oh Charlotte Flair, I wanna face you.' That's what you wanna do? OK, well, you saw what happened tonight. I do what I want, when I want."
- WWE held two dark matches before this week's NXT TV tapings from the NXT Arena at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. The first match saw Shotzi Blackheart defeat Aliyah, while the second match saw NXT Tag Team Champions Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne defeat Dorian Mak and Shane Thorne.
- We noted before that WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was at this week's NXT to watch the main event, which saw daughter Charlotte Flair defeat Bianca Belair. The Nature Boy came out before the show in a pre-show dark segment and interacted with Triple H.
As seen in the tweets below, Flair talked about watching NXT from home in Atlanta and praised the roster. He went to do a trademark knee drop on his jacket, but decided against it.
