Rhea Ripley Crowned NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion At WrestleMania 39

Rhea Ripley has dethroned the Queen to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. Ripley defeating Charlotte Flair marks her first time capturing the title and ends Flair’s reign at 92 days.

The match went on as the match right before the main event. Arguably the match of the night, Ripley and Flair laid everything out in the ring. Both women used everything in their arsenal with Ripley avoiding the Figure 8 and Flair kicking out of Riptide.

The final moments had both competitors in the corner where Ripley slammed Flair face first on to the top of the ring post. That was enough to give Ripley the advantage. She delievered an Avalanche Riptide from the ropes and pinned the Queen to secure her massive victory!

What a match!

Ripley winning makes her a Grand Slam Champion. One of now only five women to have earned that accolade. She is also the ONLY woman to have held the NXT UK Women’s, NXT Women’s, Raw Women’s, SmackDown Women’s and Women’s Tag Team Titles.

The other women’s match from Night One of Mania was the six woman tag team bout. Trish Stratus teamed up with the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Lita & Becky Lynch to take on Damage CTRL.

Despite Damage CTRL controlling a good portion of the match by isolating Lita, they weren’t able to take out the combination of legends and tag team champions.

The final moments of the match saw Lynch hit a Manhandle Slam from the second rope on Bayley for the victory. As Lynch was dealing with Bayley in her corner, Lita hit a moonsault onto IYO SKY and Dakota Kai after they had been wiped out by a Twist of Fate from Lita and a Chick Kick from Stratus.

Check back in with Diva Dirt tomorrow April 2 for the second night of WrestleMania 39.
