Asuka vs. Zelina Vega Women's title rematch set for WWE Raw

A Clash of Champions rematch has been announced for tonight's episode of Raw.

After retaining her title at Clash of Champions, WWE has announced that Asuka will again defend the Raw Women's Championship against Zelina Vega on Raw tonight:

Asuka proved Zelina Vega wasn’t ready for her at WWE Clash of Champions, but can La Muñeca maximize a second chance?

The Empress of Tomorrow will defend the Raw Women’s Title against Vega tonight on Raw.

Vega impressed in last night’s battle at WWE Clash of Champions, deftly targeting Asuka’s left arm throughout. But one costly mistake was all the champion needed to apply the Asuka Lock for the submission victory.

Later in the evening, Asuka also answered Bayley’s open challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Title before winning by disqualification.

With Asuka having competed twice and potentially nursing an injured arm, can Vega capitalize for her first championship gold? Find out tonight on Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Asuka offered Vega a handshake after their match last night. Vega instead bowed to Asuka. When Asuka bowed too, Vega attacked her with a cheap shot.

Asuka vs. Vega at Clash of Champions was originally supposed to be the pre-show match but was moved to the main card after Nikki Cross, Shayna Baszler, and Nia Jax were pulled from the show. The Bayley vs. Asuka match for the SmackDown Women's Championship took place because Cross wasn't cleared for her scheduled match against Bayley. Asuka won by disqualification after Bayley used a steel chair. Sasha Banks then attacked Bayley, getting revenge for the two times Bayley has attacked her in recent weeks.

WWE has said the situation with the Women's Tag Team titles will be addressed on Raw tonight. Baszler & Jax were supposed to defend the titles against Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan at Clash of Champions. After WWE announced last night that she and Baszler weren't cleared to compete at Clash of Champions, Jax responded to someone on Twitter today who asked if she's okay: "Girl....I could not be better I apologize that the announcement scared some, but all is great and healthy on my end & my tag partner’s end as well (not that I speak for her, but I kind of just did)."
