Raquel Rodriguez called out a rematch for the Women’s World Championship on this week’s Raw.
At Payback, Rodriguez challenged Rhea Ripley for the championship but that night was Judgment Day’s night. Ripley retained but with the help of Dominik Mysterio. Now, Rodriguez will take on Ripley next week on Sept. 11 with Dominik banned from ringside.
Rodriguez confirmed this rematch after she made short work of WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Chelsea Green. Green was booked in a singles match due to her tag team partner Piper Niven not being medically cleared to compete. Rodriguez picked up the win off the Tejana Bomb.
Also on Raw this week, Zoey Stark took on Shayna Baszler. Before the match took place, Stark was being interviewed at what happened at Payback and the seemingly end of her partnership with Trish Stratus. Baszler interrupted and said Stark should have dumped that dead weight long ago. Stark then challenged Baszler to a match.
Baszler would go on to win this match but the tenacity and guts Stark showed impressed Baszler. After getting in the Kirifuda Clutch locked in, Stark fought her way out of it twice before the referee called for the bell on the third time. Stark did not tap.
