Sasha Banks captured the WWE Women’s Title from Charlotte on Monday’s Raw kicking off a “new era” for the Raw brand.
Sasha submitted Charlotte to the Bank Statement to conclude a 17-minute match placed in the top-of-the-third-hour timeslot.
Sasha was given post-match interview time to hype her role re-introducing “Women’s Wrestling” on WWE TV.
Overall, Sasha ended Charlotte’s near-full-year title reign dating back to winning the Divas Title at the Night of Champions PPV in September. Charlotte then won the newly-introduced Women’s Title at WrestleMania, holding it until Monday’s Raw.
