Charlotte Flair never really went after Bayley after losing the SmackDown women’s championship to her on a Money in the Bank cash-in a couple months back. Instead, she took a detour, running over Trish Stratus at SummerSlam to continue cementing herself as arguably the top women’s star in all of WWE.
That’s now the focus of her feud with the aforementioned Bayley:
Charlotte’s argument is that she’s marketable and Bayley is not, so she’s going to take the title back to restore the prestige it’s been missing since Bayley has been champion. That’s kind of a weird reason to want to win a championship, but WWE has gone ahead and booked the match for the upcoming Clash of Champions pay-per-view scheduled for Sun., Sept. 15, 2019, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The King of the Ring tournament finals will also be held at the show.
