In-Ring: Charlotte Flair, Nikki ASH
Charlotte Flair makes her way down to the ring. She says a few days ago, she woke up to a headline that read Simone Biles will not be competing at an event in the Olympics. And later she realized that it was for mental health concerns. And the more she learned, the more she couldn’t help but empathize with that. Two weeks ago, she defeated Rhea Ripley.
The fans chant Becky as she says Becky’s not here, she sold the arena out, not Becky. She defeated Rhea, the next night, Nikki A.S.H. stole her Raw Women’s Championship. She has been in the business for a long time and when she woke up the next morning, she couldn’t help but think what was going on. She was going to have her own break down because she is an 11 time champion. That makes her the most decorated woman in the history of this business.

Cashing in on Charlotte is the only way to make a name for yourself. She asked for a one on one match last week to show her superiority. And when she defeated her, she had the audacity to say that she can still beat Charlotte Flair and request a rematch. She said she knocked Nikki after the match and the only thing these people like more than a champion is a martyr. And Nikki is both. Nikki will sacrifice herself in a no holds barred match tonight.
