As seen on last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Alexa Bliss squared off against RAW Women’s Champion Asuka in a non-title match. Asuka is also one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
In what was a shocking moment for many fans, Alexa Bliss defeated Asuka in the match. Due to this, the company has now officially booked a title match for this week’s show.
WWE has announced that Asuka will be putting her RAW Women’s Championship on the line against Alexa Bliss on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
It was also announced that Matt Riddle will compete in a gauntlet match against MVP, Cedric Alexander, and Shelton Benjamin. If Riddle wins the match, then he will receive another opportunity at the US Championship against the Hurt Business’ CEO Bobby Lashley. We will have to see if Riddle will be able to overcome this huge challenge.
Another match made official for the show will see the other half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Charlotte Flair taking on Shayna Baszler in a singles match, where Nia Jax is likely to be at ringside. It is likely this will build into a future title match between the two teams.
