Becky Lynch def. Sasha Banks in a No Holds Barred to Win the RAW Women's Championship
After challenging Sasha Banks a few months ago, Becky Lynch's title match against "The Boss" was put on indefinite hold until RAW General Manager Shawn Michaels thought it be fitting to have the match on the special night in New York City. After a brutal assault from the "Irish Lass-Kicker" that left many wondering would Sasha Banks be able to fight back, Lynch preyed on Banks' previously injured arm to force her to submit and walk away with her first RAW Women's Title (2nd Women's Title overall). But the new champion was not finished there as she wanted to further damage the former champion but she may have done more than that due to Lynch pulling Banks' arm out of the socket outside the ring.
