Women's Tag Team title match set for next week's WWE Raw


A WWE Women’s Tag Team title match has been announced for next week’s Raw.

The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka & Kairi Sane) will challenge champions Sasha Banks & Bayley. Asuka issued the challenge to the champions tonight after Sane made her return to Raw by defeating Banks by disqualification.

Bayley and Banks were later interviewed by Charly Caruso about the challenge. Banks accepted the match on behalf of both of them, which caught Bayley off guard. This plays into several situations recently where Bayley accepted challenges on behalf of Sasha Banks.

Asuka is already set to defend the Raw Women's championship against Sasha Banks on July 19 at Extreme Rules. Bayley will be defending the SmackDown Women's championship on the show, as she will be facing Nikki Cross.

Cross appeared on Raw tonight, playing a part in the Asuka vs. Bayley main event. Asuka defeated Bayley, who was cradled after she was distracted by Cross, who appeared in the crowd.
