Asuka and Sasha Banks look to settle the Raw Women's Championship controversy, Drew McIntyre gets to pick the stipulation for his non-title rematch with Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton will name his next target and much more.
Asuka and Sasha Banks collide for the Raw Women’s Championship this Monday on Raw
In the wake of the controversial conclusion of the Raw Women’s Championship Match at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, Stephanie McMahon announced that the true champion will be determined this Monday on Raw when Asuka and Sasha Banks clash for the title. However, in this match, the title can change hands by pinfall, submission, count-out, disqualification or if anybody interferes.
McMahon made that distinct stipulation coming out of The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, where controversy abounded. Sasha pinned reigning champion Asuka, but Bayley was the one to make the three-count. She did so after the after donning the referee’s shirt when the official was on the receiving end of Asuka’s green mist. After the three-count, The Boss grabbed the title and left the building.

Drew McIntyre chooses the stipulation for his rematch with Dolph Ziggler this Monday on Raw
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre agreed to face Dolph Ziggler in a non-title rematch, but this time, he gets to choose the stipulation.
The Showoff thought he had the upper hand on McIntyre at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules when he chose to challenge for the WWE Title in a match where Extreme Rules applied only to Ziggler. Despite Ziggler’s clear advantage, McIntyre overcame the odds and retained his title.
When McIntyre attempted to turn his attention toward SummerSlam and finding a worthy opponent, Ziggler crashed the scene and demanded another match. McIntyre initially refused, but when Ziggler offered him the chance to pick the stipulation, the WWE Champion accepted. McIntyre declared that he’s going to make Ziggler sweat, much in the same way The Showoff did ahead of The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, and reveal the stipulation only just before the bell rings.

Randy Orton to kick off Raw by announcing his next target
Who will The Viper look to strike next? We’ll find out at the start of Raw this Monday night when Randy Orton kicks off the show by announcing his next target.
The Legend Killer has been on an absolute tear in recent weeks. First, he toppled Edge in The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever at WWE Backlash, then mercilessly took out Christian in an Unsanctioned Match the next night.
Not even The World’s Largest Athlete could stymie the dastardly Orton, as Big Show also fell victim to an RKO and a punt in a brutal Unsanctioned Match last week.
After dismantling legend after legend with savage yet surgical precision, who will The Viper take aim at next? And will they have any chance of slowing Orton down?
Three Raw tag teams to battle for title bout at SummerSlam
Ricochet & Cedric Alexander, The Viking Raiders and Andrade & Angel Garza will battle it out on Raw, and the victors will punch their ticket to The Biggest Event of the Summer, where they will challenge Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits for the titles.
Ricochet & Alexander have gelled seamlessly to form one of the most exciting tag teams in WWE, using their incredible quickness to make their opponents’ heads spin. If they can establish a fast pace and take to the skies in the early goings of this Triple Threat Tag Team Match, they could be too much for their opponents to handle.
The Viking Raiders have become pals with The Street Profits in recent weeks and months, enjoying a game of one-upmanship against Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins in the “Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better” challenge, but the former titleholders are undoubtedly eyeing another opportunity at the tandem prize. If Erik & Ivar can turn the bout into an exchange of power moves and haymakers against their much smaller opponents, they will almost certainly have the inside track to The Biggest Event of the Summer.
Andrade & Angel Garza have each tasted singles gold in WWE, but neither has won any tag team accolades, and sharing the spotlight has been quite a challenge for both bombastic Superstars. Although they do occasionally butt heads and get under each other’s skin, Zelina Vega’s charges have proven to be an effective tag team when they’re on the same page, and they’ll certainly have a chance on Raw, provided they can get along.
Which Raw duo will come up with a clutch victory and earn a Raw Tag Team Championship Match at SummerSlam? Find out on Monday Night Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network!
