Nia Jax vs. Shayna Baszler set for next week's WWE Raw


A match between Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler has been made for next week’s episode of Raw.

The match was announced prior to tonight’s main event. This follows an angle on the show where Nia Jax got on the apron during a match between Baszler and Charlotte Flair. This distracted Baszler long enough for Flair to strike Baszler with a big boot for the win.

On last week’s episode of Raw, a distraction from Baszler cost Jax a match against Flair. After Baszler distracted Jax on the apron, Flair jumped off the ring post and connected with natural selection to pin Jax.

Baszler and Jax, despite being unfriendly towards one another, began teaming last summer, quickly winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team titles, The two won the titles for a second time at this year’s Royal Rumble kickoff event, but lost the titles to Natalya and Tamina on the May 14, 2021 edition of SmackDown.
