After their match at Extreme Rules was met with a controversial ending, many were waiting to see who would officially be the RAW Women’s Champion. Bayley ended up “borrowing” the referee’s shirt from the match at that event and provided the count of three to crown her best friend as the champion. Of course, this left confusion as Bayley was not in the right to call the match.
On tonight’s RAW, both Bayley and Banks made their way to the ring with all the gold. The ring announcer did not introduce Banks as the RAW Women’s Champion. As they enter the ring, they explain their actions. Bayley explains she did what was only right after Asuka spewed her green mist in the eyes of the official nearly blinding him.
Although the Golden Role Models feel that Banks is indeed the RAW Women’s Champion, Asuka feels very different. She made her way out to the stage with Kairi Sane to deliver her displeasure saying that Sasha was not ready for Asuka and that Asuka was not ready for a thief. She says the RAW Women’s Title is hers. Banks demanded her to come and get it. As the Kabuki Warriors charge the ring, Stephanie McMahon appeared on the screen to address the controversy.
She congratulates the Golden Role Models for being the Women’s Tag Team Champions. She congratulates Bayley for being the SmackDown Women’s Champion. However, when it comes to the RAW Women’s Title – Sasha may believe she is the champion but McMahon has a difference of opinion.
McMahon says that Banks didn’t win last night but then again neither did Asuka. So next week on RAW we will have another title match to determine who is the rightful RAW Women’s Champion. She adds the stipulations that Banks could lose to pinfall, submission, count-out, disqualification, or if a certain Role Model interferes in the match.
