Flair snapped at the crowd and flipped them off. Instead of being offended, the crowd and audience outside loved the reaction. The chants emerged once again when the match was in full swing, but Flair was too busy to respond.

Back in the ring, she applied the Figure Four lock and made The Nightmare tap out! Flair is now a 14-time Women’s World champion and a five-time RAW women’s champion.
