Sasha Banks took over the reign of the Raw Women’s title last week when she beat Charlotte Flair last week in her namesake city. To make it doubly embarrassing for her, her father Ric Flair endorsed the change in champions at the end of the show. Further, Banks dedicated her win to Flair prior to their title rematch scheduled as an Iron Man Match at Roadblock: End of the Line. Taking this as an opportunity, “The Queen” offered a public apology to her estranged father while claiming that his endorsement of her, broke Charlotte’s heart.
But things turned ugly when on the pretense of hugging him, Charlotte slapped ‘The Nature Boy’ and accused him of turning against his family. Banks was quick to come to Ric’s rescue but Charlotte made quick work of her. She threw Banks face-first into the ringpost before mockingly presenting her limp body before Flair.
Earlier on Raw, Seth Rollins beat his surprise opponent Big Show in a count-out to open the night on a smashing note. In another big matchup, US Champion Roman Reigns beat Chris Jericho.
