Extreme Rules: Asuka vs. Sasha Banks

324

Singles Match for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship
– Asuka (c) w/Kairi Sane vs. Sasha Banks w/Bayley

Sasha Banks countered a kick from Asuka to put her in a rear chinlock on the mat. They played up Sasha being a veteran as Asuka built a comeback. Asuka had a nice sliding knee spot on the apron that allowed her to bring the challenger back into the ring.

A lot of even-steven booking with neither talent made to look better than the other. Banks spiked Asuka off the plexiglass and hit a frog splash for a near fall. Sasha locked in the Bank Statement but Asuka made it to the ropes.

Asuka made a comeback and got a near fall off a bridge. She hit a German suplex and unloaded kicks, followed by a baseball slide. Another near fall.

Sasha worked Asuka off from the top rope as the latter was going to attempt a superplex. Banks took too long, allowing Asuka to get back on the ropes.

Banks had a spot where her knee gave out on her. They rolled a replay of her smacking her knee on the mat after a suplex from Asuka. Banks screamed at the referee and traded blows with the champion. Bayley interfered but Asuka ended up taking her out. Kairi Sane got into with it first.

Inadvertently, Asuka spit the green mist in the referee’s face. This allowed for Bayley to get in and distract the referee. Bayley ended up taking the referee’s shirt off him and counted the three count for Banks over Asuka. She called for the timekeeper to ring the bell.

Winner? and new WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Sasha Banks
