Sasha Banks will now face the RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey for the title at Royal Rumble. Sasha is getting this opportunity after she beat Nia Jax in the no. 1 Contender Match at RAW this week.
The story started with Alexa Bliss’ new talk segment ‘A Moment with Bliss’ where her first guest was RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Ronda said she wants to be a champion everyone can be proud of. Ronda then said that Sasha Banks has pushed everyone in the locker room to their limit, and she would like to face her.
Nia Jax came out and asked for a rematch against Rousey before Sasha interrupted them. Sasha thanked Ronda for her praise and that she will teach Ronda how to lose with class. Sasha and Nia faced off and this led to Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax match with the winner getting a title shot at the Royal Rumble.
In a match where she was dropped on the production crate near the barricade and pushed through her limit with the brute power of Nia Jax, Sasha Banks finally came on top. Tamina and Bayley were also present at ringside at the match. With the referee distracted, Tamina tried to interfere but Bayley stopped her. Sasha sidestepped Nia as she crashed into the ring post. Sasha followed it up with a Hurracanrana from the apron followed by the Banks Statement, with Nia Jax tapping out in seconds.
WWE Royal Rumble is scheduled for 27th January 2019. For more Results and Updates from Monday Night RAW’s episode of 27th January,
