An ongoing rivalry continues as Bianca Belair is set to challenge Becky Lynch for WWE RAW Women’s Championship. WWE has confirmed a rematch between Belair and Lynch with the title on the line for next Monday’s RAW that takes place from the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
This week’s WWE Raw season premiere featured an in-ring segment where Belair and Lynch traded words with each other. Lynch pointed out the recent failures of Belair before calling her a b**ch to ensue a physical fight between the two. Belair also issued a challenge before she went physical and stood tall in the ring.
Before leaving, Lynch accepted the challenge but not for last night. WWE later confirmed the match for next week’s show. Lynch and Belair had quite the rivalry since Lynch’s comeback at WWE Summerslam where she won the Smackdown Women’s Title from Belair. Back at Crown Jewel, Lynch retained her title in a Triple Threat but she didn’t pin Belair. Sasha Banks was the one to get pinned.

Back on this past week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, Becky Lynch traded her Smackdown Women’s Championship with Charlotte Flair’s WWE Raw Women’s Championship to become new champions on Raw and Smackdown brands, respectively. Flair and Banks are likely to be booked for the next feud on the blue brand from now onward.
New contender crowned on WWE Raw for Big E
In more news from this week’s WWE Raw, Seth Rollins is the new number-one contender to WWE Champion Big E. The 30th season premiere of the show was headlined by a Fatal 4 Way Ladder Match to crown the new challenger for the WWE Championship.
The match saw Rollins defeating Rey Mysterio, Kevin Owens, and Finn Balor to earn the future title shot at Big E. Rollins threw Owens through a ladder and then stomped at Balor in the middle of the ring before climbing the ladder and grabbing the contract for the win.
WWE has not announced when Rollins vs. Big E for the WWE Championship will take place, but it’s likely that the match will happen on an upcoming WWE RAW episode before the next pay-per-view event, Survivor Series on November 21. A title match may not take place on that night since the theme of the PPV will be champion vs. champion from Raw and Smackdown.
