On Raw this week we saw Mickie James challenging Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship which ended abruptly after James seemingly gave up to the Asuka Lock.
While there was no actual tap from Mickie to give up the match, the referee called for the bell after she had rolled onto her front and tried to escape the submission move and the ring announcer was told that she could ‘no longer continue.’
Following the end of the match just after Asuka had been declared the winner and still champion, Zelina Vega marched to the ring to make it clear that she would now be stepping up her in ring activity and wanted to be Asuka’s next title challenger.
Vega took to the microphone to say “Don’t even bother asking if I’m ready for Asuka. Because I’m here to tell you that I’m ready for THAT.” With that Vega points to the Raw Women’s Championship.
Asuka grabbed the mic from Vega and replied in her native Japanese but then out of nowhere Zelina slapped Asuka HARD and rocked the champion. Asuka then moved forward but Vega exited the ring, and the Superstars continued taunting each other as Asuka’s music hit.
Will we see Zelina Vega go up against the Empress of Tomorrow at Clash Of Champions? We’ll let you know as soon as we find out!
