-- WWE announced that on next week's NXT show - dubbed Great American Bash - Io Shirai will take on Sasha Banks in what should be a tremendous match. It will be a non-title match and came about after Banks challenged the NXT women's champ via social media and the offer was accepted and made official by NXT GM William Regal. WWE's "Great American Bash" show will go head-to-head with both weeks of AEW's "Fyter Fest" which will air during the Dynamite timeslot on July 1 and July 8. It's become obvious very quickly that WWE is serious about keeping their ratings advantage heading into the summer, while pulling out the stops to minimize AEW's viewership.
