It was an emotional night in North Carolina on Tuesday as Charlotte Flair won her first SmackDown women's title.
Flair added the blue belt to the four championships she won on Monday Night Raw to become a dual-brand champion by beating Natalya in her home town of Charlotte.
After the match, she dedicated the victory to her father, legendary Hall of Famer Ric Flair, who she said would be "at home, watching on television", and who recently spent five weeks in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery.

But little did the newly-crowned champion realise her father was watching in the arena, 100 miles away from Greensboro, where he won his first NWA title in 1983.
And, just as Charlotte was about to make her exit down the ramp, Nature Boy himself arrived to celebrate with his daughter in one of the most emotional WWE moments of the year.
