1.) Asuka (c) vs. Kairi Sane [Raw Women’s Championship]
Last week on WWE Raw, the Kabuki Warriors lost a Women’s Tag Team Championship match to Bayley and Banks. Nonetheless, they were still in good spirits on Raw Talk, where Kairi Sane mentioned that she is ready for Asuka. Asuka agreed to Sane’s challenge as long as she retains the championship against Banks at WWE Extreme Rules 2020. This exchange indicated that Sane could have her farewell match against Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship.
This is the ideal farewell match for Sane and could main event this episode of Raw, where Asuka will obviously retain the championship against Sane in a hard-fought match that will be sufficient enough to reward Sane with a standing ovation and celebratory send-off. Afterward, Asuka will have to deal with Shayna Baszler, who recently returned to Raw with a warning to the women’s champions of WWE, on the road to WWE SummerSlam 2020.
While Shayna Baszler should be the one to dethrone Asuka at SummerSlam, the main theme of this episode of Raw should be encapsulating Kairi Sane’s farewell. Sane will prove that she is ready for Asuka in what would be a friendly dream match before Asuka bids farewell to an unsung hero to close the Raw after WWE Extreme Rules 2020.
