The rumours were making the rounds since last week and it finally came true on Tuesday as former NXT women’s champion Shayna Baszler made her debut on WWE RAW as she attacked Becky Lynch. The WWE RAW women’s champion defeated Asuka in a hard-fought match but right after the win, Baszler jumped her from behind and locked in the Kirifuda Clutch. Rumours are rife that these two superstars will be facing each other at Wrestlemania 36 for the title and this can be a good start to the program in the build-up to the event.
In the main event of the night, Seth Rollins, Murphy and AOP defeated Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe & The Viking Raiders to continue their good run. Joe was able to put the Coquina Clutch on Murphy who tapped out instantly but the referee was too distracted to notice it. That allowed Rollins to hit the stomp and Murphy was able to claim the win. This was another win for the heels as WWE are setting up multiple feuds through this storyline.
In other matches, Ricochet and Aleister Black registered significant wins while Riddick Moss became the new 24/7 champion after defeated Mojo Rawley.
