What's in Store for Next Week's RAW and Smackdown
WWE has announced that SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day will defend their titles against Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura during next Friday's SmackDown on FOX episode.

Cesaro and Nakamura won a non-title match over Kofi Kingston and Big E back in June, and tonight's SmackDown main event saw Nakamura defeat Kofi in singles action.

WWE also announced that next week's show will feature a replay of the Money In the Bank singles match between Bray Wyatt and WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman, plus a non-title match with Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss taking on the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions - Sasha Banks and SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley.

- Speaking of the Red Brand, WWE has announced a Champion vs. Champion match for Monday's taped RAW on the USA Network.

The match will see RAW Women's Champion Asuka take on WWE Women's Tag Team & SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley.

This match was made after Asuka helped WWE NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai defeat Bayley's partner Sasha Banks during last Wednesday's Great American Bash show. Asuka is set to defend against Banks at WWE's "Extreme Rules: The Horror Show" pay-per-view on July 19.
