Charlotte Flair has defeated Rhea Ripley to win the RAW Women’s Championship.
Flair and Ripley have been embroiled in a heated feud since The Queen returned to WWE the night after WrestleMania 37.
The pair most recently met at WWE Hell In A Cell, where Ripley got herself disqualified just as Flair was seemingly heading towards victory. That set up the rematch at Money In The Bank.
Early in the match the two women battled the crowd as repeated “We want Becky!” chants broke out, much to the chagrin of both performers. This resulted in Flair giving the fans the middle finger. However, the action
in the ring soon took over.
Both women pushed the other to the limit as they traded near falls. Flair revered a Riptide attempt from the champion into a devastating DDT, while Ripley showed her power almost deadlifting Flair up for a Suplex.
Flair appeared on the edge of losing control on multiple occasions but her anger only made her more determined to win. After hitting Natural Selection from the top rope, Ripley somehow kicked out, but her defiance only appeared to spur the challenger on.

The second generation star kicked up yet another gear, trapping Ripley’s leg in the ring steps before delivering a couple of vicious kicks. With the champion in trouble, Flair returned to the ring, locking in the Figure Eight. Ripley fought valiantly but was eventually forced to tap out.
Including her NXT and Divas Championship victories, Charlotte Flair has now won thirteen WWE singles women’s titles.
Earlier in the night Nikki A.S.H triumphed in the Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. In the process WWE’s almost superhero earned the opportunity to face the women’s champion of her choosing at some point over the next year.
