Shayna Baszler set out to prove herself against Charlotte Flair after appearing to bury the hatchet with Nia Jax. The Queen of Spades gave the Raw Women’s Champion a run for her money, but further miscommunication with The Irresistible Force gave way to another Flair victory when The Queen hit Baszler with a big boot.

Following the encounter, Alexa Bliss made her presence felt with a gift for Flair, a Lilly-esque doll she called “Charly.” The mind games led The Queen and Little Miss Bliss into an all-out brawl culminating with Bliss hoisting Flair’s Raw Women’s Title high above her head.
