Raw Women’s Championship Announced For WrestleMania Backlash

Raw Women’s Championship Announced For WrestleMania Backlash

WWE has just announced Asuka vs. RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley for the WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view.

This will be Ripley’s second title defense since winning the title from Asuka at WrestleMania 37. Asuka originally had a rematch on the post-WrestleMania edition of RAW but that match ended in a No Contest due to interference from Charlotte Flair.

It’s been rumored that Flair would face Ripley and Asuka at WrestleMania Backlash in a Triple Threat, but WWE has only announced the singles match as of now. They are teasing a showdown between Flair and Ripley on tonight’s RAW.

At WrestleMania Backlash, new Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley will test her mettle when she takes on former titleholder Asuka in a WrestleMania rematch.

Ripley captured her first Raw Women’s Title from Asuka in a thrilling matchup on The Grandest Stage of Them All, and The Nightmare’s ability and take-no-prisoners attitude makes her a true force of nature. Considering the often unmatched skill of The Empress, will Ripley will have what it takes to best Asuka a second time? Will she be ready for Asuka … again?

The first-ever WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view will take place on May 16 from the WWE ThunderDome at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida. Below is the updated card:

Triple Threat for the WWE Title
Braun Strowman vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley (c)
