Liv Morgan retained her Women's World Championship with a screwy finish over Becky Lynch in what was definitely not an ordinary even by WWE standards ending to the most recent episode of WWE RAW. Chaos reigned in the finish after the match, largely based on an unintentional interference from Dominik Mysterio.

As she left the venue with a successful title defense, the 37-year-old hinted that this could be her very last bout before taking some time off. All of this is going on while questions have been up in the air in regards to Lynch's future in WWE, who has not signed a new deal.

The RAW women's division remains something WWE would surely love to keep on par, with it being one cornerstone under Triple H's creative direction. The current roster dynamics present a mix of heels and babyfaces. Heels include Asuka, Alba Fyre, Dakota Kai, Isla Dawn, IYO SKY, Kairi Sane, and champion Liv Morgan.

The babyface lineup features Becky Lynch, Ivy Nile, Kiana James, Katana Chance, Kayden Carter, and Lyra Valkyria, who has been prominently featured in storylines with Morgan.

New Rivalries Emerge

With Lynch potentially off WWE TV and Morgan's future appearances uncertain, the show faces a challenge in maintaining the momentum in the women's division.

Lyra Valkyria emerges as a probable contender for Morgan's title, setting the stage for new rivalries and story arcs. While WWE could promote other women wrestlers for a shot at the title, the ongoing "Liv Morgan Revenge Tour" storyline might not seamlessly integrate with other characters.

Moreover, the Women's Tag Team Champions, Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill, along with several members of Damage CTRL, primarily focus on the tag team titles, which could limit storyline options for the singles championship on RAW.

However, balancing the championship storylines between singles and tag team divisions is crucial. WWE Creative, led by Triple H, faces the task of innovating the Women’s World Championship scene, particularly by elevating challengers like Valkyria, who has garnered considerable fan support.

Ultimately, the ideal scenario would see Rhea Ripley returning to challenge Morgan, setting up a highly anticipated showdown for the Women's World Championship. Yet, utilizing Valkyria as an interim adversary might not resonate well with fans eager for fresh and compelling matchups. WWE must navigate these dynamics carefully to sustain interest and credibility in the women’s division.
