WWE had a lot of plans rolling into Clash of Champions, but one recent title change seems to have shaken things up in a big way.
Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax captured the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at Payback. They followed that victory up by retaining the titles which puts Jax and Baszler on the road to Clash of Champions with the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles in tow.
As noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the original plan for Asuka was to face Shayna Baszler at Clash of Champions. Now that Baszler is 1/2 of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions that might be changing.
WWE will need to figure out a new challenger for Asuka’s RAW Women’s Title unless they want Shayna Baszler to pull double duty. WWE is no stranger to having Superstars wrestle twice in one night. That is what Asuka did at SummerSlam to capture the RAW Women’s Title.
