More Details on When WWE Decided to Plan for Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair

-- As reported before, WWE had Asuka stop using the arm bar finisher after previously been told to focus on it. Originally, she was told to switch from the chicken wing to the armbar because the long term plan was to build towards a match against Ronda Rousey.

-- At some point though, she was instructed to stop using the armbar which would likely be right around when WWE decided to abandon Rousey vs. Asuka plans and go with Charlotte ending the streak. As a result, it appears that Charlotte will now be built up to face Rousey next year instead.
