Becky Lynch has been RAW Women’s Champion for close to 400 days.

That reign ended on Monday, as The Man relinquished her RAW Women’s Championship because she is expecting a child with Seth Rollins.

Lynch kicked off Monday’s episode of RAW holding the Money in the Bank briefcase that was won by Asuka the night before.

When the Empress of Tomorrow came to the ring, Lynch revealed that the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match was for the RAW Women’s Championship, not the briefcase.

Asuka was shocked at first and then burst out in happiness. She is the new RAW Women’s Champion.

The Man was emotional, but it was a bittersweet moment. She was proud to have relinquished the title to someone she respects so much.

“You go and be a warrior, ’cause I’m gonna go be a mother,” Lynch said.

Asuka’s reaction to the news was priceless. She was so happy for her fellow superstar and even started chanting “Becky!” as Lynch exited the ring.

Lynch was then surrounded by RAW superstars backstage, receiving many congratulatory remarks.

Congratulations to Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins on this exciting news!
