Asuka to face Nia Jax next week on WWE Raw


Asuka is going to WrestleMania alone, but Nia Jax isn't done with her just yet.

It was announced on Raw last night that Asuka will face Nia Jax once again in a rematch from this past Sunday's Elimination Chamber event. Asuka picked up the win that night with a victory roll out of nowhere, keeping Nia Jax out of the Raw women's title match at WrestleMania. Jax was far from happy about the loss, taking Asuka out of the ring and ramming her through a barricade on the outside.

Yesterday on Raw, Asuka was in the ring with Alexa Bliss and Mickie James when Jax came down and attacked Asuka, with Bliss and James joining in. Sasha Banks and Bayley came in to even the score, resulting in a six-woman tag team match where Asuka picked up the submission win with an armbar over James.

Raw next week will be at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
