Then, he followed it with a Hammerlock DDT to win the match.

#1 Sasha Banks
After some surprising turn of events, the no. 1 entry in this week’s ranking is Sasha Banks. RAW women’s champion Ronda Rousey appeared as the guest on the debut of the talk show segment of Alexa Bliss.

Nia Jax took offence to this and challenged Sasha. they both faced off in a match and Sasha beat Nia. Sasha will now face Ronda for RAW Women’s title at Royal Rumble.
