#6 RAW Women's Champion Asuka vs. SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks at WWE Survivor Series

WWE has already featured this match a few times in 2020, so even despite that, the build hasn't been the greatest. The two mentioned each other in passing during a promo from each, but for Sasha Banks, she's been dealing more with Carmella and a Bayley that won't move on.

Even last night, while Asuka and Banks had a face to face promo, the lasting image was a laid-out Banks after another attack from Carmella. While WWE should be applauded for setting things up post-Survivor Series, the build to the pay-per-view match could have been done much better. One woman could have attacked the other during a different week or one woman could have shown up on the opposing show to support an adversary of the other Champion. Or they could have done guest commentary. Almost anything more than a quick backstage promo and a go-home segment in-ring would have helped to sell the 'Best of the Best' angle better.

We know that the two women won't have a problem delivering a solid match at Survivor Series. It's just that for what should be the second most important match involving Champions in the WWE, the build has been lacking. Will we see the upcoming opponents for each woman play into the outcome of the match?
