Bayley Retains the Raw Women’s Title, Charlotte Streak Ends, Nia Jax Takes A Loss (Video)

- Nia Jax lost her first main card pay-per-view singles match at tonight's WWE Fastlane pay-per-view as she was defeated by Sasha Banks.

Nia did wrestle Sasha at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view but they wrestled on the pre-show, not the main card. Below is video from tonight's match at Fastlane:

- Charlotte Flair’s pay-per-view streak ended at WWE Fastlane as she failed to capture the RAW Women’s Title from Bayley. Charlotte was victorious at 16 straight pay-per-views since her main roster call-up – Battleground 2015, Night of Champions 2015, Hell In a Cell 2015, Survivor Series 2015, TLC 2015, Royal Rumble 2016, Fastlane 2016, Roadblock 2016, WrestleMania 32, Payback 2016, Extreme Rules 2016, SummerSlam 2016, Clash of Champions 2016, Hell In a Cell 2016, Roadblock: End of The Line and the 2017 Royal Rumble.

- Tonight at Fastlane, Bayley successfully defended her Raw Women’s Championship. Prior to the match, Charlotte had sent her protégé Dana Brooke to the back, a nudge to Bayley after the champion had challenged Charlotte to take her one-on-one in an interview that took place earlier in the night.

Once the match started, both women went back and worth competing for control of the match. When the action spilled to the outside, Bayley hurricanrana from the ring apron, then headed up to the top rope for a cross body, leading to a two count over the challenger.

Charlotte began a comeback with by using her legs to trap Bayley into a headlock and then thrusting the champion’s head onto the mat. Charlotte would follow up with her signature top rope moonsault and running Senton but it wasn’t enough to put Bayley away. Bayley began another combat by fighting off Chalotte with a series of chops to the chest, a second hurricanrana and top rope elbow drop.

When Bayley went high risk again, she was knocked off by Charlotte, who landed in a Natural Selection in process, nearly putting away Bayley for the three count. In the end, it was an interfering Sasha Banks that would seal Charlotte’s fate.

The Boss ran down to the ring, distracting Charlotte on the outside and allowing Bayley to hit a Bayley-to-Belly from the outside floors. When Bayley tossed Charlotte back in the ring, Charlotte played possum and nearly stole another win by pinning Bayley with a handful of Bayley’s tights. Sasha would run back out to alert the acting referee of Charlotte’s dirty tactics, causing another distraction that allowed Bayley to hit a second Bayley-to-Belly to retain her title.
