Following her win over Dana Brooke, Charlotte Flair demanded that Sonya Deville add her to the Raw Women’s Title match at WrestleMania Backlash. Sonya agreed to do so. Deville brought Flair back from her “suspension” early as well.
Several weeks after her arrival to Monday Night Raw, Rhea Ripley went on to WrestleMania 37 to defeat Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship. The two had a rematch on the Raw after WrestleMania but that bout was interrupted by Charlotte Flair.
Come WrestleMania Backlash on May 16th, Asuka and Rhea will meet once again with the Raw Women’s Title on the line.
