A Women’s Tag Team title match has been set for next week’s episode of Raw.

The IIconics made their return tonight on Raw, appearing for the first time since last November. After appearing uninterested about Becky Lynch’s pregnancy, the duo challenged Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss to a title match, but ended up settling for a non-title match. They won tonight's match, pinning Bliss following a double-team facebuster.

This will be the first title defense for Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss, who defeated the Kabuki Warriors (Asuka and Kairi Sane) at WrestleMania 36 for their second title run.

Also announced for next week’s Raw is an interpromotional match, pitting Raw’s Drew McIntyre against SmackDown’s King Corbin. It was announced earlier in the show that a new brand-to-brand invitation system is now in place that will allow Raw wrestlers to challenge SmackDown wrestlers to appear on their show and vice versa.
