Asuka wins Raw Women’s title at WWE Night of Champions

For the first time in more than a year, the Raw Women's Championship has changed hands.

Asuka put an end to Bianca Belair's title reign by defeating her at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia on Saturday. Belair was champion for 420 days before dropping the title to Asuka.

An innovative use of blue mist led to Asuka getting the victory over Belair. Before Belair went for the KOD, Asuka spit the mist into her own taped up fingers. Belair picked up Asuka for the KOD, but Asuka raked Belair's eyes with the mist. With Belair blinded, Asuka hit two kicks and pinned Belair to win the Raw Women's Championship.

Belair vs. Asuka was a rematch from WrestleMania 39. Asuka lost that first meeting but returned to WWE programming two weeks ago and resumed her feud with Belair.

Though she's the Raw Women's Champion, Asuka is a member of the SmackDown roster. Both Asuka and Belair moved to SmackDown in the WWE Draft.

SmackDown Women's Champion Rhea Ripley was selected by Raw in the WWE Draft. Ripley retained her title against Natalya at Night of Champions.

Belair had been Raw Women's Champion since winning the title from Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 38 in April 2022.
