Nikki A.S.H. took no time in cashing in her Money in the Bank contract and is your new RAW Women’s Champion. This is Nikki’s first-ever singles title in WWE. She is a former two-time Women’s Tag Team Champion with Alexa Bliss.
She cashed in after the main event which saw now-former RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair in a rematch against Rhea Ripley. Flair had defeated Ripley on Sunday at Money in the Bank to become a five-time RAW Women’s Champion and 11-time Women’s Champion in total.
The rematch main event ended in disqualification when Flair clobbered Ripley in the head with the championship belt on the ramp. As Flair took time to gloat and hear that she was still the RAW Women’s Champion as a result of the disqualification, Ripley took the fight back to her. After Ripley had decimated Flair just enough, the Almost a Superhero Nikki rushed towards the ring with the briefcase in hand.
She asked for the match to start as she was cashing in, she climbed up to the turnbuckle waiting for the bell to ring. Once Flair was on her feet, Nikki hit a crossbody to get the three count on The Queen to become the RAW Women’s Champion for the first time in her career.
This makes the third time that Flair has been cashed in on. Previous Money in the Bank winners Carmella (2017) and Bayley (2019) both cashed in on Flair to each become SmackDown Women’s Champion. Carmella is the only briefcase holder to hold the briefcase for longer than one day.
