#4 Asuka wins the RAW Women’s Championship at WWE SummerSlam
Asuka was incredible at WWE SummerSlam. It is hard for anyone to have two high-quality matches on the same show, but we already knew that she is one of the best wrestlers in the WWE.
Asuka pulled double duty on Sunday night. Her match with Bayley was strong but, unsurprisingly, she lost. Sasha Banks was able to distract the Empress Of Tomorrow and help her best friend continue her lengthy SmackDown Women’s Championship reign. It seemed Asuka just couldn’t catch a break against the Golden Role Models.
The second match between Asuka and Sasha Banks was even better. Asuka took a brutal sunset flip powerbomb on the floor. The match was back and forth with some very stiff-looking offense through the 11 minute match. The finish was the big shock.
Bayley was knocked down by Asuka. Asuka was then able to put Sasha Banks into the Asuka Lock. This time Bayley wasn’t around to save her friend, nowhere to be seen. Sasha Banks tapped and lost the RAW Women’s Championship. She wasn’t able to successfully defend her title at WWE SummerSlam.
The big story coming out of this match at WWE SummerSlam will be the lack of help from Bayley in the decision. Is this the match that finally starts the break-up between Sasha Banks and Bayley? It should be an interesting week ahead for the duo. There's also the matter of Sasha and Bayley possibly defending the Women’s Tag Team Championship at Payback. Is it time for the Sasha-Bayley feud to begin?
