WWE Superstar Ronda Rousey took the win against Charlotte Flair to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion at WrestleMania Backlash.

Flair defended her title against the former UFC Bantamweight Champion in an ‘I Quit’ match and Rousey would finally get her hands on the blue belt.

This is the first time that Rousey has held a title in the company since her WrestleMania 36 loss to Becky Lynch for the RAW Women’s Championship.

It’s expected that the former UFC fighter will now hold onto the title for some time, with a potential rematch against Lynch at WrestleMania 39.
