Charlotte Flair captured her 12th WWE women’s championship at SummerSlam after defeating Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley in a triple threat match.
All three women traded offense early. Things broke down into a stretch with Ripley and Flair battling one-on-one with Nikki knocked out of the ring. After Flair took Ripley out with a big boot, Nikki hit a big DDT for a near fall. As Ripley and Flair began to battle it out on the floor, Nikki came off the top rope with a crossbody on both women.
Big moves continued when Flair hit a twisting moonsault from the top rope to the outside onto both of her opponents. Flair locked Ripley in the Figure-Eight back inside the ring but Nikki broke the hold by flying off the top rope.
