After reporting the reasons that prompted the WWE leadership to momentarily move Sasha Banks to Raw's rings to challenge the champion of the red show Asuka, in the next WWE PPV of July, Extreme Rules, in a challenge never seen before with at stake the Raw Women's Championship, although The Boss already holds the title of women's federation tag team champion together with her friend Bayley, important new news arrives about the future of the beautiful McMahon athlete.
As reported first on social media and then officially also on the website of the same federation, in the next episode of the yellow WWE show, the one dedicated to the reborn brand of Great American Bash, Sasha Banks will clash with the NXT champion Io Shirai, in a challenge that is already making its fans dream.
Sasha Banks will face RAW Women's Champion Asuka
Everything would have been born from an initial promo put online on the famous social network Twitter, where the WWE champions and friends challenged the Japanese NXT, saying they had disrespected them and with Sasha who therefore wanted to challenge Shirai in the next episode special of NXT.
After a few hours, apparently, the news would have first been made official by several online sources close to WWE and then also by the same federation, which with different tweets and releases on its official website has put its approval on the challenge.
Apparently, the lack of athletes from the great star power both at Monday Night Raw and at NXT has led the drama of the McMahon company to opt for the move of the two Smackdown friends in all three federation roster, given that currently hold the federation couple championships, which allow it to change the brand at its own choice.
The title of WWE tag team champions, in fact, allows all the athletes of all three roster to be able to challenge the champions in a titled match, so as to allow Bayley and Sasha Banks to be able to attend the WWE with ease at each weekly episode wishes, going to fill the various gaps that the absences of Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and all the others have created.
As per Dave Meltzer of WON, the reason behind WWE choosing Sasha Banks as Asuka's opponent at Extreme Rules is that Charlotte Flair is reportedly out of action for the coming time. "Banks, a Smackdown wrestler, is going after the Raw title likely due to Charlotte Flair being out of action. Flair had two wins over Asuka, but then lost to Asuka on television and did an injury angle off it."
