What's the story?

Charlotte was part of the recently held Starrcade event. The event took place on the 25th of November in Greensboro, North Carolina.

She faced Natalya for her SmackDown Women's Championship inside a steel cage.

In case you didn't know...

Starrcade was an event created by the legendary Dusty Rhodes. This event was part of the Jim Crockett promotion during early 80's and has also been a part of NWA, WCW and now, even WWE.

The first ever Starrcade was held in 1983 and was headlined by Ric Flair facing Harley Race inside a steel cage.

Charlotte won the SmackDown Women's Championship after defeating Natalya. She then went on to defeat Alexa Bliss at Survivor Series.

The Heart of the Matter

Starrcade is a historic event that has been brought back by the WWE after a span of 17 years. This event saw two matches take place inside a steel cage; one being for the Women's Championship and the other for the WWE Championship.

Among other legends such as Arn Anderson, Rock 'n' Roll Express and Ricky Steamboat, Ric Flair was also there in support of her daughter and in honour of his old friend Dusty.

After successfully defending her Women's Championship against Natalya, Charlotte was overwhelmed with joy and took to Twitter to send out this message:

Last night in Greensboro was an experience I never knew I wanted, never knew I could have. Performing in North Carolina, performing at Dream’s dream…performing at #WWEStarrcade with my dad watching. Speechless. Thank you.


What's next?

According to reports on how successful the event was, it is believed that Starrcade will most likely return again next year.

Although Natalya has received her rematch, it seems that the feud between Charlotte and her is going to continue.

Author's take

It must have been a great experience for Charlotte to be at such a historic event and have her father there to support her. It really meant to a lot to her as can be seen from her Tweet.
