Tonight on SummerSlam, the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles will be defended.

“Alexa Bliss has some unfinished business with Sasha Banks, and that business will be settled at SummerSlam when the two fierce competitors once again go head-to-head for Little Miss Bliss’ Raw Women’s Championship.
Heading into their Raw Women’s Title clash at the first-ever WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view, there was already no love lost between Alexa and Sasha. Banks had her sights set on her fourth Raw Women’s Championship, and she was not shy about expressing her opinion that Bliss was nothing more than talk and politicking. For her part, Bliss felt that her own record spoke volumes, having thrived inside an ultra-competitive Women’s division to become the only Superstar to hold both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles, a distinction she still carries.
The Boss’ hatred only intensified after her devious opponent opted to take a count-out loss at the July 9 pay-per-view, taking the easy way out to remain champion. When The “Goddess” of WWE started a post-match celebration on the ramp, though, Banks turned her displeasure into action by igniting a wild brawl that culminated in her hitting a double knee on Bliss off the announce table.
In the weeks that followed, it seemed as if Banks was going to have to wait for another opportunity against the reigning titleholder after Bayley defeated The Boss in a hard-fought bout on Raw to determine who would battle Alexa at The Biggest Event of the Summer. However, when Bayley suffered a separated right shoulder, The Boss battled her way back into the spotlight, first winning a Triple Threat Qualifying Match against Emma and Alicia Fox, then overcoming Nia Jax to earn the right to challenge Alexa at SummerSlam.”

“Prepare for a knockdown, drag-out battle at The Biggest Event of the Summer when third-generation Superstar Natalya attempts to capture the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Naomi at SummerSlam tonight.
A member of one of the most legendary families in squared-circle history, Natalya has always been a threat, and after overcoming Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Lana and Tamina in a 5-Way Elimination Match at WWE Battleground, she is more determined than ever to wear the coveted blue-brand title around her waist.
Her quest is far from over, however. Tough-as-nails titleholder Naomi, who successfully defended her championship three times against Lana, has been on an absolute roll, and she’s maintained a firm grasp on the title since winning it for the second time at WrestleMania 33 in a Six-Pack Challenge. And now, at one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year, she will look to the make The Queen of Harts feel the glow as she continues to assert herself as a fighting champion.
Can Naomi conquer the graduate of the infamous Hart Family Dungeon, or will Natalya end the reign of her Total Divas co-star to capture the SmackDown Women’s Title for the first time in her career? Or, will the first-ever Ms. Money in the Bank, Carmella, choose The Biggest Event of the Summer to potentially ruin the evening for whomever is left standing?”
