WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Bianca Belair created history when all three women took part in the first-ever women’s title match in Saudi Arabia. The three spectacular athletes faced each other at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for Lynch’s WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship.

Interestingly, other than these female superstars fighting in the ring, what made this match a ‘standout’ match of the PPV was the Arabian crowd who were invested in the match right from the get-go and felt every punch or bump these wrestlers took last night during the co-main event of the night.

Eventually, ‘Big Time Becks‘ stood tall at the end of a splendid match when she pinned ‘The Boss’ Sasha Banks with a little help from the ropes, but who cares, right?

By doing so, she became the first woman to defend her title in Saudi Arabia, which is a feat that speaks volumes in itself about her accolades.
