What’s the story?
The WWE has addressed a potential romance storyline between Bobby Roode and Charlotte Flair.

In case you didn’t know…
Charlotte Flair and Bobby Roode have been performing as one of the Tag Teams in the WWE’s ongoing MMC (Mixed Match Challenge) tournament.
Flair and Roode, both of whom are known for their elaborate entrances, don their respective robes akin to the style popularized by Ric Flair—something that’s caught the attention of the WWE Universe.
The heart of the matter
Charlotte Flair was involved in a segment with The Riott Squad on SmackDown Live, that saw Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan approach her; appearing to be primed to attack Flair.
However, the segment was interrupted by WWE United States Champion Bobby Roode, following which The Riott Squad backed down. The WWE put forth an article about the Flair-Roode romance angle—a few excerpts of which have been noted below—
“Just as The Riott Squad looked primed to pounce on the SmackDown Women’s Champion, however, her fellow “Robe Warrior” unexpectedly brought the standoff to an end with his glorious arrival.”
“Later that night, The Queen tagged Roode in a tweet that included lyrics from Brandy & Monica’s “The Boy is Mine,” leaving many in the WWE Universe wondering if romance could be brewing between the two.”
Furthermore, The Riott Squad have now taken to social media so as to issue a warning to Roode after his interference; with Liv Morgan asserting that if he ever interrupts The Riott Squad again, she’ll “take all the damn sequins off” his robes.
Charlotte Flair and Bobby Roode face the team of Rusev and Lana in the next round of the WWE MMC.
WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Flair defends her title against Ruby Riott at this Sunday’s Fastlane PPV. Meanwhile, Bobby Roode puts his United States title on the line against Randy Orton at the same event.
Honestly speaking, the WWE could indeed put forth a long-running romance storyline between Charlotte Flair and Bobby Roode, especially given how over the couple seems to be with the WWE Universe.
As for The Riott Squad, the group truly seems to be coming into its own, as Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan appear to be gaining more confidence with each performance on SmackDown Live.
