Night of Champions Results: Charlotte Wins the Divas Championship


Tonight at Night of Champions, a new Divas Champion was crowned: Charlotte.

The second generation Diva put an end to Nikki Bella‘s record-setting Divas Title reign, overcoming a bad knee and excruciating pain to lock Nikki into the Figure Eight submission and force her to tap out.

For much of the match, Nikki was in control, using an early knee tweak to her advantage, repeatedly punishing Charlotte with submissions and attacks.

Nevertheless, Charlotte prevailed, and was joined in the ring by Becky Lynch, Paige and her father, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, as she hoisted the Divas Title, triumphant.

Charlotte’s win ends Nikki’s Divas Title reign at 301 days. It also makes her the second woman to hold both the Divas Title and the NXT Women’s Title, a feat also achieved by her Team PCB teammate Paige.
