Nikki A.S.H is the new RAW Women’s Champion!
In the main event of the July 19th episode of Monday Night RAW Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley went to war one more time over the RAW Women’s Championship.
Fresh off the back of vanquishing Ripley at Money In The Bank, Flair had earlier suggested that she could beat her rival any night of the week. This led to the match being set by Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce.
During the match itself, Charlotte continued to target Ripley’s injured knee, but it was the challenger who almost regained her title after hitting Flair with the Riptide. However, Flair broke the pin by getting her foot on the ropes. The match came to an end when Flair dipped to the outside, grabbed her title and headed up the ramp, only to be chased by Ripley. As the Aussie approached, Flair turned and nailed Ripley with the belt causing a disqualification.
After the match, Ripley attempted to get revenge on Flair, hitting her with another Riptide, this time on the outside. Just as Charlotte hit the floor, Nikki A.S.H’s music reverberated around the area. Ripley rolled Flair back into the ring, where WWE’s resident superhero declared that she was cashing in her newly won Money In The Bank contract.
Nikki quickly climbed to the top rope landing a cross-body on Flair to pick up the win.

The victory marks Nikki’s first singles championship win, having previously only won tag team gold alongside Alexa Bliss.
Nikki A.S.H only became Ms Money In The Bank 24 hours earlier after seeing off, Bliss, Asuka, Naomi, Liv Morgan, Zelina Vega, Natalya and Tamina.
With all competitors apart from Bliss fighting at the top of three separate ladders, A.S.H snuck in to grab the briefcase and the Money In The Bank contract.
