On the July 11 episode of Raw, there was a rematch from Money in the Bank as Carmella took on the Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair with the gold on the line. Two weeks from Saturday will be SummerSlam and as of this time, Belair’s opponent for the biggest event of the summer has not been announced.
Ahead of the bout, Becky Lynch made her way to ringside. She stood on top of the announce desk to deliver a promo where she wanted a shot at the Raw Women’s Champion. Feeling that she defeated Asuka in the main event last week, she should be considered the number one contender. However, Carmella has received a rematch and Lynch is not pleased with that. Regardless of who won tonight, she demanded a championship match at SummerSlam.
Carmella looked to take the belt off of Belair ahead of the big event and thus becoming Lynch’s opponent. She wouldn’t win the championship, but she would take the victory. A count-out victory.
In a better showing than the two had at Money in the Bank, the final moments of the match would have Lynch keep Belair on the outside of the ring. The two would argue which resulted in the referee counting to ten unbeknownst to Belair until the last second when she tried to get back into the ring.
Carmella would celebrate her victory with the Raw Women’s Title belt in hand as if she won the gold. Belair had enough of Carmella’s gloating and delivered a KOD to end the segment.
In a Digital Exclusive, Carmella would celebrate adding Belair to the high-profile list of women she has defeated in her career. Although she didn’t win the gold she still believes she should be champion
The match for SummerSlam was not confirmed but it appears we may be looking forward to a Triple Threat unless something changes next week.
Elsewhere on this week’s Raw, a tag team match took place between Alexa Bliss & Asuka as they took on Nikki A.S.H. & Doudrop. After Doudrop missed with a backsplash on the outside against Asuka, Bliss was distracted and almost pinned on a roll-up by Nikki. Bliss delivered a DDT to get the victory.
