WWE Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch has enjoyed a strong six-month reign since seizing the strap in her WrestleMania 35 main event with Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey, but it would appear that 'The Man' is running out of challengers.
Her latest opponent, Sasha Banks, was defeated in an awesome Hell in a Cell clash this past Sunday. That feud may have been set to continue after the pay-per-view, despite 'The Boss' failing to claim the gold on two successive supercards, but Banks was struck down by injury at HIAC and there's no word on when she might return to the ring.
This week's Raw brought a confrontation between the Kabuki Warriors and the tense Flair/Lynch tandem. Rather than transitioning into a Women's Tag Team Championship feud, the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer has noted that WWE may use this programme to build Asuka as a Raw Women's Title contender instead.
Asuka and partner Kairi Sane seemingly turned heel at Hell In A Cell, where they defeated Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss to claim the tag straps. She'd be a fitting opponent for 'The Man' despite her middling 2019.
