Becky Lynch wins vacant WWE Women's World Championship, becomes 7-time champion

"The Man" is back on top.

Becky Lynch is the new WWE Women's World Champion after winning the battle royal match on "Monday Night Raw" to claim the vacant title.

Fifteen women started the battle royal, but after some out of the ring shenanigans, Nia Jax, Liv Morgan and Lynch were the final three contestants. Lynch and Morgan worked together to take Jax out of the match and they were the last two left. The fight went on the edge of the ring, but Lynch was able to execute a manhandle slam to eliminate Morgan for the win.

The title was vacated after Rhea Ripley relinquished it due to her suffering a shoulder injury. During "Monday Night Raw" after WrestleMania 40, Liv Morgan attacked Ripley with a chair and threw her into the wall of the hallway. It is believed Ripley suffered the injury when her shoulder hit the wall. The following week, Ripley appeared in a sling as she addressed the attack by revealing her injury. Ripley said she was told she would be out of action "for quite a few months."

Ripley's reign lasted 379 days, which tied Bayley for the longest reign of the title in WWE history.

With Lynch now champion, the title goes back to the person that won it for the first time. When the title, then known as the SmackDown Women's Championship, was introduced in 2016, Lynch became the inaugural champion after she won it at Backlash that same year. She is now a five-time Women's World Champion, with her last reign in 2021. She has also held the WWE Women's Championship twice, making her a seven-time champion.

It's also redemption for Lynch, who fought for the championship at WrestleMania 40 against Ripley, but she was defeated.
