WWE Women's champion Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley

I have to admit, every time I see Bayley's entrance on the main roster, it really makes me smile.

Lots of frenzied action and some near falls early until all three tried to nail a dropkick at the same time before facing off.  Banks has her ribs taped.  Bayley was taken out with a double clothesline but Sasha then nailed Charlotte.  Banks went for a tiltowhirl backbreaker but it was blocked and Charlotte nailed a neckbreaker.  Charlotte went to the top for a moonsault but was nailed and tied to the tree of woe.  Banks nailed a running knee strike.  Bayley nailed Banks and hit Charlotte with an elbow as she was still hung upside down for a two count.

Banks tried to toss Bayley to the outside but Bayley hung on and nailed her with a shoulderblock.  Dana Brooke nailed Bayley from behind and drilled her on the floor.  Charlotte attacked Banks and began working over her back.  Charlotte locked on a surfboard.  She ripped the tape off Banks' back and then used the ringpost to continue to assault her back.  Bayley returned to the fray but was quickly kicked back down by the champion.

Banks tried to fight back and finally nailed a spinning headscissors takedown.  Banks nailed a series of forearms and clotheslines.  She caught an attempted kick and nailed a knee to the face.  She went for the backstabber but Charlotte drilled her.  Bayley returned with a big flying bodypress on both.  Bayley worked over both with shoulders to the mid-section of each in opposite corners.  Banks scored against each and nailed a double decker knee on Bayley and Charlotte, with Charlotte sliding out of the way at the last second.

Banks covered Bayley but Charlotte pulled her out of the ring.  Banks fired back with forearms on Charlotte and even Brooks on the floor.  Charlotte cut her off with a backbreaker.  Charlotte went for the figure eight but was kicked off...and right into a Bayley to Belly.  Charlotte was covered but Sasha interfered and scored her own two count.  All three of them ended up on their knees battling each other with the challengers finally working over the champion at the same time.

Bayley was sent rudely into the buckles.  Banks unloaded hard on Charlotte with rapid-fire chops.  Charlotte was set up for a superplex only to fight it off and sent Banks down hard.  Bayley tried to get involved and she and Charlotte crashed into the ropes.  Charlotte nailed a moonsault on them both at the same time but Banks kicked out when she tried to score a pinfall.  Bayley also kicked out.  Charlotte nailed Natural Selection on Bayley but Banks grabbed her in the Bank Statement.  Brooks pulled her out of the ring.

Bayley and Banks scored near falls on each other.  Charlotte returned but was nailed with the Backstabber into the Bank Statement by Banks.  Brooks tried to get involved but Banks kicked her away.  Bayley broke it up.  Banks went for the Bank Statement on Bayley but Charlotte drilled her with a big kick.  Banks was sent to the floor and then sent into the barricade.   Charlotte returned to the ring but was caught with an inside cradle by Bayley for a two count.

In the end, Charlotte kicked Bayley into Banks, who was knocked off the apron to the floor then drilled Bayley with Natural Selection and scored the pin.

Your winner and still WWE Raw Women's champion, Charlotte!
