The build to WWE’s biggest ever SummerSlam continued on Raw as the Raw Women’s Championship match for the show was confirmed.

The show opened with Nikki A.S.H celebrating her women’s championship victory on last week’s show when she cashed in her Money In The Bank briefcase to take the title from Charlotte Flair just 24 hours after The Queen had defeated Rhea Ripley for the belt.

Nikki was inevitably confronted by both former champions demanding their title shots.

This brought out WWE officials Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce who inevitably confirmed that the three will tangle in a triple threat match at SummerSlam.

Nikki and Flair then faced off in a one on one match that served as Raw’s main event.

Flair won the match comfortably but was then challenged to a rematch next week.

WWE SummerSlam takes place on Saturday August 21st. You can keep up to date with all the information on the show with our handy explainer guide and purchase tickets to one of our SummerSlam viewing parties across the UK here.
