After last week’s surprising (and somewhat horrifying) match between WWE Raw Women’s Champion and Tag Team champion Asuka and Alexa Bliss, WWE fans have something better to look forward to. This week on Monday, there will be a title match between the two.

Before last week’s match, Alexa Bliss gave Asuka a glimpse of her playground and she announced her entry into the Royal Rumble match. While Asuka was supportive of the decision, she mistakenly said the name of the Fiend, sending Bliss into a frenzy.

Later in the main event, Alexa Bliss turned “dark” and took the Empress of Tomorrow to her playground once again. There, she attempted the Mandible Claw and defeated the champion with a Sister Abigail DDT.

After she won the match, everything turned to normal and Bliss mouthed the words “Let me in.” This match also made Alexa Bliss become the first woman to appear on the main event of RAW on three consecutive nights.

This week on RAW, we will get to see what havoc Bliss wreaks on Asuka. As the preview aptly said, “Now, Bliss is one more victory away from capturing the Raw Women’s Title. Can Asuka overcome what maybe her gravest challenge yet, or is darkness in store for the Raw Women’s Championship?”

What to expect from Alexa Bliss vs Asuka?

Alexa Bliss has become synonymous with the supernatural on the main roster. Hence, we must look for more of them in the upcoming match.

It will also be Asuka’s first title defense since November when she defeated Lana. Although she seemed somewhat intimidated in the previous match, the ‘Empress of Tomorrow won’t leave the match easily.

If Bliss wins the match, the RAW Women’s title will be on the line at the Women’s Royal Rumble match. However, there is a high chance that the match will stop midway because of some supernatural and external elements.

One week ahead of WWE Royal Rumble, could the Fiend come back in this match? Or would Randy Orton interrupt and ruin Alexa Bliss’ chance at winning the title? We will have to find out at RAW next.
