-- After advertising it in local markets and with some publications, WWE moved to make the following match and segment official for Monday's Raw:
Charlotte Flair, Nia Jax and Natalya battle for the right to challenge Asuka at WWE Backlash
Asuka has had her time to celebrate after becoming Raw Women’s Champion, but now, the time to fight is drawing near. The first challenger to The Empress of Tomorrow’s title will be determined on Raw this Monday when NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Nia Jax and Natalya square off in a Triple Threat Match. The winner will take on Asuka at WWE Backlash.
Jax drew the champion’s ire last week with a ruthless attack on Kairi Sane. Flair will certainly be looking to extend her empire across two brands, and Natalya will be out to bounce back after a pair of tough losses to Shayna Baszler. Who will walk away with a Raw Women’s Championship opportunity? Tune in to Raw this Monday at 8/7 C on USA to find out!
