Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler seem to be on a collision course with Natalya & Tamina from Friday Night SmackDown but they also have challengers coming for their titles on Monday Night Raw in the form of Lana & Naomi. To that end, WWE has announced the champs will defend their titles against those two on Raw this week.
Here’s how WWE is selling the challengers as potential threats:
However, Naomi, a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion, knows what it takes to win a title, while Lana may be on a precipice of a breakthrough win after nearly pinning Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match last week.
Meanwhile, AJ Styles & Omos, who haven’t been on television since they won the Raw tag team titles from The New Day at WrestleMania 37, will finally make their return this week. They will do so this week, as WWE booked them for a rematch against Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston.
Finally, it’s also been announced that WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will wrestle either Braun Strowman or Drew McIntyre ahead of their triple threat match at WrestleMania Backlash.
