The WWE Women's Tag Team Championship storyline
Nia Jax announced on the latest episode of RAW that her suspension had been lifted. Shayna Baszler had a brief interaction with Nia Jax backstage before her match against Bayley.
As expected, Baszler vs. Bayley ended in a DQ after Nia Jax attacked The Queen of Spades. However, the warring heels put their differences aside to shift their attention to Bayley and Sasha Banks.
The Golden Role Models retreated to the back as the segment came to an end.
Jax and Baszler would later confirm their newfound alliance in another backstage segment, which, for some weird reason, ended with Baszler slapping Jax.
Apollo Crews vs. Bobby Lashley
The match between Apollo Crews and Bobby Lashley was the next logical step after the United States Champion successfully defended his title against MVP during the kickoff show at SummerSlam.
The most recent installment of RAW had an Arm Wrestling contest between Crews and Lashley, and WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry hosted the segment. It was a predictable angle as Crews beat Lashley before getting attacked by The Hurt Business. The United States Champion managed to escape the beatdown as he went up the ramp.
