Asuka and Nia Jax

What's the story?

WWE has announced Asuka will face Nia Jax on next week’s episode of RAW which takes place in Milwaukee, Wisconson.

This will be a rematch of their bout from Elimination Chamber which saw the two women collide in a spectacular match, with Asuka picking up the win. However, Nia Jax showed her dominance after the match by assaulting Asuka.

In case you didn't know...

Asuka won the first ever Women's Royal Rumble that took place in January, guaranteeing her a shot at any of the two: RAW or SmackDown Women's Championship Titles at WrestleMania.

Although she hasn't announced which Championship she will go after, it is being believed that she will indeed challenge for the RAW Women's Championship.

Nia Jax was given the opportunity to add herself to the Championship match at WrestleMania if she could defeat Asuka at Elimination Chamber; something she failed to achieve.

Both Women were part of a brawl that took place on RAW and found each other on opposite sides of a 6-women tag team match.

The heart of the matter

The two Women have proven to be the perfect opponents for each other and it will be interesting to see if Nia can overcome Asuka's undefeated streak on RAW next week.

Here is the official Tweet:


What's next?

According to the current belief, WWE are planning for a one-on-one match between current RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss and Asuka at Wrestlemania. There have been no solid plans regarding Nia Jax as of now and it will be interesting to see what WWE would have her do at The Grandest Stage Of Them All.

Author's take

I was very impressed by their last outing a the Elimination Chamber PPV and hopefully, they will entertain the fans with another great performance.

It is still possible that Nia might be added to the mix for the RAW Women's Championship at 'Mania.
