The Raw Women’s Championship Triple Threat match between Rhea Ripley, Charlotte Flair and Asuka kicked off WWE WrestleMania Backlash.
The match started out with Asuka and Ripley after Flair was knocked out of the ring for a couple of minutes. Flair eventually took Asuka out of the ring and then hit a fallaway slam on the floor. It was Ripley vs. Flair for a few minutes while Asuka was out on the floor.
Most of the match was fast-paced. Late in the match, Flair hit a moonsault onto both Asuka and Ripley on the floor at ringside. Moments later, the tide turned when Asuka and Ripley superplexed Flair off the top rope and into the ring. Flair turned things around when she hit a double chop block on both women and she followed up with a double Natural Selection into a pin attempt on both women at the same time.
Ripley retained the title by pinning Asuka with the Rip Tide as Flair looked on from ringside with a look of disbelief on her face.
