The Kevin Owens Show kicks off WWE RAW
WWE RAW kicked off with Kevin Owens coming down to the ring to host another edition of the Kevin Owens Show. Owens hyped up the triple threat match later in the night between Natalya, Nia Jax and NXT Women's Champion Charlotte to determine who'd challenge Asuka for the RAW Women's title at Backlash.
KO then introduced his first guest - Asuka. Asuka went to speak about how Nia Jax interrupted her celebrations last week but was interrupted by Charlotte. The NXT Women's Champion started to remind Asuka how she had never beaten her and went on to say that the title should have been handed to her. Both Natalya and Nia Jax came out after this and headed down to the ring.
Jax got into Asuka's face and told her she would destroy her and take the title at Backlash. Asuka didn't take this lightly and took Jax down with a strike to the face that also made Natalya and Charlotte back off a little.
