New Women's Champion Crowned In RAW Main Event

Guess Sasha Banks can't defend the Raw Women's Championship after all.

In the main event of the August 28 episode of Raw, Bliss defeated Banks to recapture the Raw Women's Championship less than two weeks after losing the title at SummerSlam. Banks has yet to successfully defend her title once, despite now being a four-time Raw Women's Champion.

Winner: Alexa Bliss, your new WWE Raw Women’s Champion

Below are some highlights of the match from WWE's Twitter.

As soon as it looked like Raw was about to go off the air, Nia Jax, who came to celebrate Bliss' title win, dropped Bliss to the mat, symbolically telling the new champion that she'll be chasing the title now.

Bliss is now the first woman to not only have won the SmackDown and Raw Women's Champion, but win those titles twice. Check out our post-Raw Fightful Podcast with Sean Ross Sapp and Alex Pawlowski for more on the title change and a recap of the entire show at this link.
