There’s a new Raw Women’s champion in town and her name is Sasha Banks! The Legit Boss now matches her partner in crime Bayley with two title belts.
Banks beat Asuka yesterday on Raw via count out. Usually titles do not change on count out but the stipulation of this match was that a winner would be decided even via count out or disqualification.
Asuka got counted out because Bayley attacked Kairi Sane backstage and she went to rescue her friend, leaving Banks in the ring alone for the win.
This is Sasha’s eighth reign as a champion in WWE, winning the NXT Women’s title once, the Women’s Tag Team titles twice, and the Raw Women’s title five times.
Even though she won the Raw Women’s title on four other occasions, her record with the title is not really good and has only kept it for a combined 82 days over her four previous reigns. In fact, out of the eight different title holders of the Raw Women’s title, Sasha is sixth in terms of overall combined days, beating only Bayley and Nia Jax, both of whom have one title reign each.
Her four title reigns came by beating Charlotte three times and Alexa Bliss once. Banks’ first reign was in July 2016 when she beat Charlotte in Pittsburgh during an episode of Raw. That title reign was only 27 days. She then lost it to Charlotte at SummerSlam but won it back in October 2016 on an episode of Raw from Los Angeles, another reign that lasted 27 days. Losing it to Charlotte again at Hell In A Cell, Banks regained it in November 2016 during an episode of Raw from Charlotte in a falls count anywhere match. Her third reign ended after 20 days, losing it to Charlotte again at Roadblock in December 2016. Her final title reign came in August 2017 when she beat Alexa Bliss but she had the shortest reign with just eight days, losing it to Bliss again on Raw in Memphis.
