Things got a bit wild tonight at WWE Clash of Champions, when Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks had their match for the Raw Women’s Championship. The recently returned and heel-turned Banks was hoping to become Champion, which didn’t happen tonight (but still might before long), but neither she nor Becky showed each other any mercy in their knock-down, drag-out battle.
Sasha brought a chair to the ring, and while the ref was disposing of it, she took the opportunity to grab a second chair and hit Becky with it. When Becky attempted to retaliate, she accidentally knocked out the ref with the chair, leaving the match without an official. When she saw how brutal Becky was willing to get while unsupervised, Sasha attempted to abandon the match through the crowd, but Becky followed her, and they brawled up the stairs of the arena, and then through the concourse.
They fought their way down another set of stairs, through the crowd and back to the ring. Becky set up a chair in the ring, and pounded Sasha’s head into it. Then she caught Sasha in a Disarm-Her through the back of the chair, leading Sasha to tap, but there was still no official. When several officials finally did run down to the ring, they had to physically break up the hold, because Becky didn’t want to let go. Ultimately, the Champ took a DQ loss for striking an official, but she retained the Raw Women’s Championship.
This match was an obvious setup for a Hell In A Cell match between these two women next month, and I can’t wait to see the show that they put on then.
