Fresh off her big title win from last Monday during RAW, newly crowned WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks is set to defend her title at SummerSlam against Charlotte.
The announcement comes from WWE.com, who gives a preview to the title rematch as follows:
The Boss captured the WWE Women’s Title — a goal of Banks’ since her youth — on the July 25 edition of Raw, bringing Charlotte’s eight-month reign to a close. The astounding bout saw both women pull out all the stops, from Charlotte executing a moonsault to the floor, to Sasha stealing a page from her idol, Eddie Guerrero, and using creative means to get Dana Brooke ejected from ringside. In an emotional post-match interview, Sasha fought back tears as she proudly claimed to be the one and only Boss in WWE. Adversaries since their days in NXT, where Sasha also ended a title reign of Charlotte’s, the two competitors have steadily pushed each other’s boundaries with pioneering matches that have redefined the Women’s division. At SummerSlam, however, Charlotte will find herself in the unfamiliar position of challenger. Will the self-proclaimed “Genetically Superior Athlete” — the daughter of “The Dirtiest Player in the Game” Ric Flair — resort to extremes to regain her title? What would it take for Charlotte to separate Sasha from the treasured prize she’s fought her entire life to achieve?
SummerSlam takes place Sunday, August 21st at 7 ET on the WWE Network.
