Sasha Banks and Bayley picked up another big win on WWE Raw.
Charlotte Flair was the biggest story coming out of this week’s WWE Raw, as she’s been written off television with an arm injury after losing to Asuka in a Raw Women’s Title match and then later suffering a beatdown at the hands of an irate Nia Jax.
But there were several other major happenings on this week’s episode. Here are five takeaways from the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw.
Nia Jax is WWE Raw’s top heel now
Nia Jax and Asuka seemed destined to clash again at Extreme Rules in July, because their Raw Women’s Title match at Backlash ended in a double count-out. The Force of Greatness recently told talkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy that she loves wrestling Asuka and has great chemistry with The Empress of Tomorrow.
On this week’s episode of Raw, Nia wrote Charlotte Flair off television by destroying her backstage, and this was after she had a war of words with Charlotte (and R-Truth). Jax is one of the most disliked wrestlers among WWE fans, and the company is taking full advantage. Her heel work is exceptional, and she is now entrenched as the top heel in the WWE Raw Women’s Division.
