WWE Womens Superstar Returns and New Womens Champion Crowned on Monday Night RAW (February, 13th 2017)
Last Night Monday Night RAW came to Las Vegas with two women’s related moments to look forward to, as NXT Alumni Emma made her long awaited main roster return after being sidelined midway through last year with an injury. On top, a match booked just last week presented the opportunity for Bayley to overcome her naysayer in Charlotte Flair, with the Professed “Genetically Superior” Champions Title on the line.
Emma was the first to show on this weeks RAW, under the introduced Emmalina guise that has been hyped since October via vignettes. The Debut of the Emmalina character was first slated for December, before being nixed for reasons unknown. After several more weeks of similar vignettes, Emma returned, showing up for the Las Vegas audience with the declaration that the Makeover of Emma to Emmalina was complete, before confusing many with the follow up announcement that they will witness her makeover back to Emma, presumed to be the heel character she worked as prior to her injury, a character spawned in her return to NXT.

On top, Charlotte Flairs title defense would end in unexpected misery for the 4x Champion, as Bayley would go on to capture her 1st RAW Women’s Championship, taking advantage of a pin attempt after an assist from Sasha Banks, who attacked Charlotte after preventing an assist from Charlotte’s On/Off Protege, Dana Brooke. Sasha went on to celebrate with Bayley, who took her celebration into the crowd. Bayley is the second woman in WWE to capture a Women’s Championship Title in the past 7 days, as Naomi also captured the Smackdown Women’s Championship this past Sunday at WWEs Elimination Chamber Smackdown Centric Pay Per View. At the time of this writing, Bayleys first championship defense for Fast Lane is yet to be known.
