Nikki Cross returned to Raw. She was a lumberjack for Damian Priest and John Morrison’s match. Cross was the only member of the women’s division at ringside.

After capturing the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles this past Friday on SmackDown, Tamina and Natalya put their titles on the line against the former champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler. Tamina and Natalya retained. Towards the conclusion of the match, Reginald attempted to get involved and Alexa Bliss prevented him from doing so by bringing flames up from the ring post. Bliss expressed interest in both Tamina and Natalya earlier in the show.
