WWE Extreme Rules: Asuka vs. Sasha Banks – Raw Women’s Championship


Asuka put her Raw Women’s Championship on the line at The Horror Show at WWE Extrem Rules.Notes written during the match:

Asuka had Kairi Sane in her corner and Bayley was in Sasha Banks’ corner. Earlier in the evening, Banks helped Bayley retain the SmackDown women’s championship in his match with Nikki Cross.

At the start of the match, Asuka managed to lock the armband, but Banks rolled up the bottom rope to break the hold. Banks resumed the offensive for several minutes, including locking a butterfly lock followed by trampling on the chest, but Asuka was able to retaliate with a rotating list but Asuka charged and Banks grabbed her with his legs and drove Asuka in the tensioner but Asuka hit a codebreaker on the middle rope banks.

The two women fought on the apron and at the edge of the ring with Banks picking up Asuka and pushing her into the barricade. Back in the ring, Banks hit a frog and she called with the Bank Statement but Asuka came to the bottom rope to break the hold. Asuka returned to the attack with a German suplex and body kicks and an attempted pin that Banks kicked out. Asuka hit another German suplex and had a hip attack, but Banks kicked out the pin attempt. Asuka went for a dropkick from the top, but Banks moved around and hit a knee in the face, then a close fall from which Asuka was kicked out.

Asuka fought back and tried a German suplex on top but Banks backed up and landed on her knees. Banks began to favor his left knee. They traded blows as Banks continued to favor his knee. Asuka had the Asuka lock as Bayley tried to interfere. Kairi Sane blocked Bayley but Bayley knocked out Sane at ringside. Asuka asked Banks to tap but the ref was not looking. Bayley tried to get involved but Asuka kicked her in the face. Sasha grabbed the Woemen’s Tag belt but the referee removed it and Asuka stood up. Asuka spat out a green mist but Sasha moved and the ref took the mist in her face. Bayley nailed Asuka with the belt as the ref was blinded. Bayley took off the referee’s jersey and put it on and decided to count Asuka. Sasha’s music played as she celebrated her “victory” title with Bayley. Obviously, Banks isn’t the real champion, but they want fans to think that through for now until Raw when they hand the title back to Asuka.
