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.
