- Sasha Banks defeated Charlotte Flair to become the new WWE RAW Women's Champion on tonight's show from Charlotte, North Carolina.
Sasha is now a three-time RAW Women's Champion. Flair just won the title back on October 30th at Hell In a Cell.
Earlier on Raw, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Raw Women’s title rematch ended in a No Contest after a double count out but acting Raw General Match Mick Foley announced that the two Superstars would restart their match under Falls Count Anywhere rules later in the night.
At the Raw main event match, the challenger got the better of the champion early on, sending the Charlotte to the outside of the ring and pinning her after a dive through the second ropes and an outside suplex. Charlotte regained control of the match, slowing down Sasha with various submission but the action spilled to the outside ring again after Charlotte landed a big boot to Sasha, knocking her off the apron.
After kicking out of an elevated Natural Selection, Sasha found a kendo stick which she would use as a weapon to combat Charlotte and the Figure Eight. The battle reached the announce table and from there Charlotte landed a moonsault from the announce table but it wasn’t enough to put Sasha away.
Instead the action made its way through the live audience and from there, Sasha trapped Charlotte through a railing and locked in the Bank Statement, forcing Charlotte to tap out.
Below are photos and video from tonight's Falls Count Anywhere main event, which featured a post-match appearance from WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. Sasha had earlier dedicated the match to Flair.
