Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair has congratulated a rising star following their title win at NXT Battleground 2023.

During the May 28 NXT premium live event, Tiffany Stratton and Lyra Valkyria faced off for the vacant NXT Women’s Championship.

Stratton was ultimately victorious, pinning Valkyria following a moonsault to win the gold.

Congratulations woman! 👏
