Below is an excerpt from Mike Tedesco’s WWE Raw recap of how Lynch won the Battle Royal, to become the new WWE Women’s World Champion.

It’s down to Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan. One of these two will be the next Women’s World Champion. The crowd is buzzing, and they begin brawling in the center of the ring. Morgan sends Lynch over the top rope, but Lynch lands on the apron and kicks her back. Lynch goes to the top rope and jumps over Morgan. Lynch quickly grabs her and puts her on the apron. Morgan pulls Lynch through the middle rope and attempts a suplex. This would not be an elimination. Lynch blocks it and tries to suplex Morgan to no avail. Lynch attempts to give her a German Suplex off the apron, but Morgan holds on. Morgan kicks away at Lynch and hits a codebreaker on the apron. Lynch stumbles near the ring post. Morgan goes for Ob-Liv-ion, but Lynch blocks it. Lynch hits a Manhandle Slam on the apron, and Morgan rolls to the floor! Lynch wins!
