WWE Night of Champions – May 27th, 2023

SmackDown Women’s Title Match: Natalya vs. Rhea Ripley

We go back to the ring and out comes Natalya on her 41st birthday. SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley is out next with Dominik Mysterio. We get formal ring introductions from Mike Rome.

Dominik distracts Natalya from the apron as the bell hits, allowing Ripley to deck her from behind. Ripley unloads on Natalya at ringside now, smashing her into the Arabic announce table. Ripley sends Natalya into the ring post, then the steel steps now.

Ripley brings it back in and drops Natalya again, then hits Riptide in the middle of the ring for the quick squash win.

Winner: Rhea Ripley

After the match, Ripley stands tall as the music hits. Dominik joins her for the celebration as they taunt Natalya, who is being checked on in the corner by the referee. We go to replays. Ripley and Mysterio are all smiles and laughs up the ramp while Natalya is helped from the ring. We get another replay of the finish. Ripley raises the title on the stage now.
