The WWE have confirmed that Sasha Banks will challenge Asuka for the RAW Women’s Championship at the upcoming Extreme Rules 2020 pay-per-view event on July 19.
On Monday’s June 22nd, 2020 edition of RAW, Sasha Banks issued a message to the WWE Universe stating her desire to challenge for the RAW women’s title. Asuka came out and accepted the challenge.
The WWE have since confirmed the match-up on their official website and released their official preview. Take a look below.
“Sasha Banks will try to join her tag team partner Bayley in becoming a double champion at Extreme Rules when she challenges Raw Women’s Champion Asuka.
The Boss, already one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, listened to “The Role Model” describe how great it is to be a double champion and decided she wanted to experience it for herself. After defeating The IIconics to retain the tag titles, Banks called out Asuka, who was happy to accept the challenge before attempting to fight off the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. However, while Asuka was focused on Bayley, The Boss saw the perfect opening to lock the Bank Statement on the champion, sending a huge message ahead of their title showdown.
