We have a new Raw Women’s Champion, and it’s … Bayley!!! Charlotte Flair’s continued disregard of both Bayley and Sasha Banks finally came back to haunt her on Raw. The Boss helped The Huggable One seal the deal and achieve her girlhood dream of winning a Women’s Title on Raw, thus ending The Queen’s fourth reign with the title.
Up until the point of Sasha’s arrival, Bayley had been hanging tough, slapping Charlotte in the face and slamming her headfirst into the turnbuckle too many times to count. She continued to hang even after having her head bounced off the bottom buckle and suffering an interference from Dana Brooke, who raked Bayley across the eyes when she was trapped in the Figure-Four Leglock. To help even the odds, The Boss — unbeknownst to both Bayley and the ref — took out Brooke with her crutch and jabbed Charlotte in the gullet with it, breaking up the Figure-Eight and setting Bayley up for the decisive Bayley-to-Belly. The new champion celebrated exactly as you’d expect: among the WWE Universe, who quite literally embraced her as she dove into the crowd with the title. You could almost say it was a hug.
