There is another match set for WWE Backlash following the #1 contender’s match on Raw for a shot at the Raw women’s champion Asuka.
Nia Jax pinned Natalya in a match that also featured NXT women’s champion Charlotte Flair. The end came when Jax broke up the Figure 8 attempt by Flair, sent Flair to the floor, and pinned Natalya after hitting the Samoan drop.
Nia Jax will now challenge Asuka for the Raw women’s title at WWE Backlash on Sunday, June 14th.
Jax previously held the title in 2018 when she defeated Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania 34 and lost it to Bliss in June that year at the Money in the Bank event.
Asuka was named women’s champion on the May 11th episode of Raw when Becky Lynch relinquished the title and it was revealed the title was inside the Money in the Bank briefcase that Asuka had won.
Here is the updated card for WWE Backlash:
*Edge vs. Randy Orton
*Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE title
*Braun Strowman vs. The Miz & John Morrison in a 2-on-1 handicap match for the Universal title
*Asuka vs. Nia Jax for the Raw women’s title
