On Monday night, the WWE held another first for its female athletes with the RAW Women's Gauntlet Match. Sasha Banks came out on top and will face Alexa Bliss for her RAW Women's Championship title at the Great Balls of Fire Fire PPV on July 9th.
Contending in the match was also Bayley, Dana Brooke, Mickie James, Emma and Nia Jax. I'm a big Nia fan, so I had been pulling for her.
First out was Bayley, who faced Nia Jax. Bayley has a lot of heart, but Nia is pure strength. Bayley gave it her all, but Nia won. Mickie James came out next, but Nia finished her off quickly. Dana Brooke came out and left just as fast. Emma followed, and frankly, Emma was also no match.
Last but not least was Sasha Banks. These two have an established rivalry, so this was a good pairing. Sasha put up the best fight out of everyone, using all of her sly tricks to take down the mighty Nia. Sasha's unrelenting fight really made the match, and it was wonderful to see Nia wrestle at her full potential. Sasha won the match, and she absolutely deserved it. Here's hoping she can take take the title from Alexa Bliss!
