On Monday’s episode of Raw, the latest match for SummerSlam was made official following Asuka’s win against Bayley in a non-title match.
With the win, Asuka earns another shot at the Raw women’s championship as she will face Sasha Banks at SummerSlam, per the stipulation of the match with Bayley.
This will be their latest match following the phantom title switch at Extreme Rules after Bayley subbed as the referee and counted three, declaring Banks the champion. On the July 27th episode of Raw, Banks defeated Asuka by count-out, which led to Banks becoming the current champion as the title could be decided on a disqualification or count-out.
Bayley’s title challenger at SummerSlam will be determined in a Triple Brand Battle Royal on Friday Night SmackDown this week, which is being taped Thursday at the WWE Performance Center.
