WWE held the first night of the WWE Draft on this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown. One of the major moves that took place on the show saw RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair get traded to the blue brand.

According to a new report from WrestlingINC’s Raj Giri, the FOX Network specifically requested that Flair be sent over to Friday nights. This has not been confirmed by any other outlets, but it appears as though FOX have managed to genuinely get a major player.

There’s no note on when WWE will be taking the RAW Women’s Championship off of Charlotte Flair, or whether she may just relinquish the title now that she is no longer on the show.
