In the match, Flair’s highlighting moments were a gravity-defying moonsault and when she made Nikki A.S.H. submit to the Figure Eight. The win makes her a onetime and the last Divas Champion, two-time NXT Women’s Champion, a record six-time Raw Women’s Championship (she was the inaugural champion), and a record five-time SmackDown Women’s Champion.

The Queen” has also won the Women’s Tag Team Championship with Asuka, thus becoming a Triple Crown Champion and a Grand Slam Champion. The current reign is her 14th title in WWE.

This week on RAW, Flair burned all bridges as she basked in her own glory. She came out to celebrate her victory with a scathing promo. The Queen listed out all her achievements and said no one could match up to her legacy. She was surprised that there was not a statue of her yet!

“And this time, I’m holding on to this championship as long as physically possible,” Flair proclaimed. “I don’t need friends, I don’t need my family, and I sure as hell don’t need the WWE Universe.”

She held up the title as the crowd continued to boo her. Then sometimes later, Flair laid a warning to the Women’s locker room. “I started the Women’s Revolution, and I’m starting a new one right now. Thank me now or thank me later, but don’t forget to bow, because I’m your Queen and your champion. Long live the queen!”

As Charlotte looked at her inquisitively, Bliss revealed she just wanted to say hi to Flair! The segment ended with Bliss’ music playing in the background as Bliss and Flair looked at each other.

We could see a great rivalry in Bliss vs Flair. After Flair basically denounced her family (which includes Hall of Famer Ric Flair, and Andrade), she would not receive help from anyone.
