Charlotte Flair was added to the Raw Women's title match at WrestleMania Backlash with Sonya Deville making the dramatic call.

Star performer Flair was "suspended" by WWE just weeks ago, but had been off screens for just seven days before making a triumphant return.

Reinstated to active competition by on-screen authority figure Sonya Deville in last week's episode, The Queen was again making headlines last night.

Deville went a step further by adding Flair to the planned bout between Asuka and champ Rhea Ripley, making it a triple-threat affair at the pay per view event on May 16th.

It was an eventful enough evening for Flair, who was also in action in the ring on Raw with a match against Dana Brooke that she won via the Figure Eight submission.

Deville's actions, meanwhile, continued to rouse the suspicions of fellow "Official" Adam Pearce, who accused her of overstepping her mark.

Elsewhere on Raw this week, Bobby Lashley defeated Braun Strowman in the main event as the build continues to another WrestleMania Backlash triple-threat, the WWE title match also involving Drew McIntyre.

McIntyre aided Lashley in his win by distracting Strowman, and left is mark on both after their match by attacking them before the show went off the air.

The WWE Women's and Raw tag team titles were both on the line, with the respective champions coming through unscathed. AJ Styles and Omos overcame The New Day while Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler defeated Naomi and Lana.

Other in-ring action saw Lucha House Party beat Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander before the latter duo continued their implosion, and Randy Orton and Riddle continue their successful pairing with victory over Elias and Jaxson Ryker.

John Morrison was on the losing end against Damian Priest thanks to Hit the Lights, and US Champion Sheamus won out over Mansoor by disqualification after being attacked by Humberto Carrillo.
