RAW Results: No.1 Contender crowned; Top Champion pinned twice
The Miz & Morrison kicked off RAW with Miz TV and their guest for the night was Charlotte Flair. Charlotte came out and started talking about Rhea Ripley and the RAW Women’s Championship before Ripley walked out and joined them.
Charlotte tried to bring up the fact that Nikki Cross beat Ripley last week before they were joined by Cross as well. Nikki said that since she beat the champ, the winner of the Hell in a Cell title match should give her a shot at the gold.
Ripley admitted to the loss and said that Nikki earned her respect before Charlotte chimed in and Nikki challenged her as well. The Queen was offended and said that she could beat Nikki in a minute.
Nikki snapped and slapped Charlotte in the face, angering Flair and ensuring that she gets her match with her tonight.
