Nikki A.S.H. Cashes In Briefcase, Wins WWE Raw Women's Title
27 hours after winning the briefcase
Nikki A.S.H. is the new Raw Women's champion, after cashing in her Money in the Bank briefcase on titleholder Charlotte Flair at the end of Monday's Raw in Dallas.
Flair was defending her newly won title against previous champion Rhea Ripley in the night's main event. Flair got herself intentionally disqualified after striking Ripley with the championship.
After the match, Ripley attacked Flair, running her into the barricade and the ringpost. With Flair laid out, Nikki hit the ring to cash in her briefcase.
As soon as the bell rang, Nikki came off the top rope with a flying cross body, and pinned the already-dazed Flair.
For Nikki, the title is her first singles gold in WWE. She was previously a two-time Women's Tag Team champion with Alexa Bliss.
The match marks the third time a Money in the Bank briefcase was cashed in against Flair. 2017 winner Carmella and 2019 winner Bayley both won the SmackDown Women's championship over Flair in this manner.
With Nikki's win, all five women's briefcase holders have gone on to successfully win a championship via the case (2020 winner Asuka was permitted to exchange her briefcase straight across for the Raw Women's title, due to champion Becky Lynch's pregnancy).
