Rhea Ripley set to defend RAW Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania Backslash. This will be her 2nd defence of the title she won at Wrestlemania 37.
Rhea Ripley beat Asuka at Wrestlemania to win her first Women’s Championship on the main roster. The RAW Women’s Champion immediately defended the title on RAW against the same opponent. However, an interference from Charlotte Flair prevented Asuka from reclaiming her title.
The Empress of Tomorrow will now have another shot at the RAW Women’s Championship at Wrestleaman ia Backlash. The match was announced right before this week’s episode of RAW. Interestingly, this will be a one on one match despite the WWE seemigly hinting towards a triple threat involving Charlotte too.

An excerpt from WWE.com read:
“Ripley captured her first Raw Women’s Title from Asuka in a thrilling matchup on The Grandest Stage of Them All, and The Nightmare’s ability and take-no-prisoners attitude makes her a true force of nature. Considering the often unmatched skill of The Empress, will Ripley will have what it takes to best Asuka a second time? Will she be ready for Asuka … again?”
It will be interesting to see if the WWE write Charlotte into the match. Both Asuka and Ripley are very talented wrestlers. However, for some reason their match seems to lack something. Could Charlotte be the missing ingredient? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
