OP you have it back-ass-ward. It makes no sense for Rhea to challenge anyone for her own title!! lmfao!!

From a kayfabe standpoint it would make more sense if it was Becky, as she never won the NXT Title & could say she wants to complete her set. Charlotte already won the NXT title years ago, so it kinda feels like a step down. Charlotte going after Rhea is just a way to make NXT look more important because they are losing to AEW. Will it work? I don’t know, Balor hasn’t helped all that much. I prefer her against Rhea as a match over Becky or Bayley though which we’ve seen a thousand times.

This thread makes no sense because Rhea challenged Charlotte and has been goading her into a match since. What you should be asking is why Charlotte accepted

The biggest issue I have Charlotte didn't need win the Rumble to set this match up
Yeah, pretty much this. Charlotte didn't need to win this year. Given that they will do the Elimination Chamber for the Raw Championship, they could have given the Rumble to a returning Sasha Banks or Naomi, depending on who challenges Bayley. Then they could also do the storyline with Rhea and Charlotte.

Her RR win made no sense. She didn't need to win the rumble to feud with Rhea and she shouldn't be wasting a RR win just to face new challenges, as she claims she wants to do.

Nobody NEEDS to win the Rumble to feud with anyone. It's an overblown #1 Contenders match with a choose your opponent modifier. Just the same as nobody NEEDS to win MITB to become champion they are just plot devices.

How the fuck is it wasting a Rumble win? She chose what title she is going for which means she did not waste her Rumble win. Her choosing to face Rhea fits her better than everyone else attitude. She's beaten Becky she's beaten Bayley what the hell does beating them again prove to anyone? Going after Rhea(who challenged Charlotte first BTW which makes sense as she's going after the most decorated woman in WWE history as a way of proving she "The Next Big Thing" in WWE's women's division) makes perfect sense for Charlotte to do because of that and the aforementioned better than everyone else attitude.

Presumably, this feud ends with Rhea winning at WrestleMania which would cement her as a force to be reckoned with and at the end of the day that's all that really matters.

Because you're cashing in your once in a lifetime opportunity for a c brand title. Does it make sense that you get the golden ticket to challenge for whatever title you want to go for the minor league title?

Now they're in a no win sitch. Either you wasted your royal rumble on a c brand loser or you wreck the momentum of your biggest up and comer from nxt.

Rhea baited Charlotte into picking her. Charlotte wants to let Rhea know that she should be careful what she wishes for. The end.

Makes perfect sense.

Charlotte gave a perfect kayfabe explanation on Monday. Anything further on this match setup can be discuss in their match thread in the PPV section.
