Monday Night RAW this week plays host to a champion vs champion match as Asuka takes on Bayley. Just hours before the show this is still all we have announced for this edition of Monday Night RAW.
Champion vs Champion: Asuka vs Bayley W/Sasha Banks
Note: While Kairi was originally included in the graphic for this match she has since been removed from all match graphics
Champion vs Champion matches in the women’s division have become the norm in recent times as the brand lines get blurred thanks to the women’s titles being dual-branded. In the latest we see Asuka take on Bayley as we build towards Asuka’s title defence against Sasha Banks at Extreme Rules. It would appear that Kairi Sane, amidst various rumors regarding her future, will return to even the odds for Asuka as she fends off Smackdown’s role models. Not to be forgotten is the fact Asuka cost Banks a win against Io Shirai on NXT last week so Bayley will be out to get some payback.
Not Announced But Expected
