Charlotte Flair had her shortest run as champion following Money in the Bank 2021

The Queen defeated former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley at Money in the Bank to become the new champion. It was a glorious moment for her, since she had been trying to get the title for a while.

However, the glory did not last long. The following night on Monday Night Raw, Nikki A.S.H. cashed in her Money in the Bank contract and pinned Ripley to become the new Raw Women’s Champion. Not only was this the shortest Championship run of Flair’s career, but also in the title’s history.

It’s unclear if Charlotte Flair will have another title run sometime in the future. However, it doesn’t seem like Nikki A.S.H. will have a smooth title run considering almost every Superstar on the roster is eyeing it.

In fact, there should possibly be a rematch between Nikki A.S.H. and Charlotte Flair in the coming weeks.
