Partial Spoiler: Original Plans For NXT Women’s Title Match At Takeover, Bret Hart’s WWE Status

With Natalya facing Charlotte for the vacant WWE NXT Women’s Title at the May 29th live NXT Takeover event, WWE wanted to have Ric Flair and Bret Hart in their corners.

Bret had an issue that made it impossible for him to attend the event so it will just be Ric in Charlotte’s corner. No word yet if they have considered using Natalya’s father Jim Neidhart but his name wasn’t mentioned in the report. We do know that Neidhart was recently with Natalya at a WWE taping in Greensboro to work on an unknown project.

For what it’s worth, Bret has not signed a new Legends contract with WWE.

    If Natalya won the title would that be considered a downgrade or an accomplishment since it’s still a championship won ? Being a diva on the main roster for about 6 years & winning the developmental championship I mean .

      I think any attention for Nattie is good, but they are still wasting her talent. She is far too good to be relegated to developmental matches, however, I do think the up and coming talent can learn more in one match with her than many who have studied for years. She is truly gifted, and I sincerely hope WWE will give her one more big run on the main shows. She most certainly has earned it, and deserves it.
