We will find out if we will see Kevin Owens face Seth Rollins or Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. Mick mentions the Backlash pay per view and the crowning of their first women's champion, Becky Lynch. Mick says that he thinks the women on Raw are the best in the WWE. Mick brings out the Women's Champion Charlotte, and she is joined by Dana Brooke.

We see what happened last week when Charlotte lost to Becky Lynch in a non-title match. We also see Dana getting slapped by Charlotte and Sasha's announcement that was interrupted by Dana Brooke.

She tells Bayley to get to the back of the line because they have unfinished business.

Charlotte says they took care of things at SummerSlam. Charlotte says she is the only champion in the ring and Sasha does not dictate when Charlotte defends her title.

Mick says Charlotte is right about Sasha not saying who defends the title, but Charlotte does not either. Charlotte says that Sasha does not belong in the ring with her. Charlotte says she agrees. Dana says Sasha and Bayley should be fighting over who should face Charlotte and maybe in a best of seven series.

Charlotte tells Dana to stop talking. Mick says Charlotte will face the winner of tonight's match between Sasha Banks and Bayley at Clash of Champions.
