Putting aside her usual bravado, Becky took to Instagram to reflect on the power of the moment and the match that they had, tipping her hat to both Sasha and Bianca and Tyson Kidd, the agent for all WWE Women's matches.

Tonight was about so much more than a title.

I’ll set aside my usual trash talk tonight . Thank you to the women I shared the ring with tonight. You push me to do better. Thank you to the fans watching at home. Thank you to the incredible fans in Riyadh tonight who cheered so ferociously throughout our whole match and making this first trip to Saudi Arabia so memorable and inspiring so much hope for the future of women around the world.

Thank you to the women who have laid the path for us to do what we do.

Congratulations to the first Queen of the ring winner @theatrinidad

And thank you to @tjwilson711 for being one of greatest minds the wrestling business has and collaborating with us to make magic.

I’ll go back to hating everyone tomorrow and wanting to slap heads. But tonight I want to say thank you
