We get a look back at last week and WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte being presented the new title by Lita, then the confrontation with Natalya. We go to Charlotte and Ric Flair backstage now. Charlotte says it’s only been 8 days since she won the title and she should be on “Legends with JBL” instead of defending against Natalya tonight. Flair agrees and isn’t sure if he’s more disgusted with Natalya for thinking she’s that good or Shane for trying to be a big shot. Dr. Phil appears and introduces himself. He says he’s been watching Charlotte’s rise. He says she’s intelligent, hard working and committed. He says she sees the bond Charlotte has with her dad but now he’s holding her back. Phil says Flair is actually corrupting her and getting in her way, not letting her be herself by giving her dirty tricks. Phil asks Charlotte why she’s letting her dad bring her down. He tells her to stand on her own two feet instead of leaning on this guy. Charlotte gets upset and asks how dare he. She’s going to chop his hillbilly butt all the way back to Texas. Phil goes on and says Charlotte is better than Flair, she doesn’t need him. Flair has been speechless. Charlotte walks off and Phil eggs her on. Flair finally throws a big “whooo!” in Phil’s face but he gives some right back and Flair leaves.
