As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, Sasha Banks defeated Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Emma, Bayley and Mickie James in a Gauntlet Match to become the new #1 contender for the Raw Women’s Championship. Banks will challenge Alexa Bliss for the championship at the Great Balls of Fire PPV.
Jax wrestled everyone put in front of her before eventually submitting to the Banks Statement. Jax was put over as an unstoppable monster and the fans were into the match as she scored pinfalls over Bayley, James, Brooke, and Emma. Surprisingly, Bayley was the first person to lose. Given that Jax was so impressive by defeating four women, my guess is that she will be getting a title shot in the near future. If she is not added to the match at Great Balls of Fire then, perhaps, she will get her shot at SummerSlam. Jax came off as a total babyface because she got clean pinfalls over everyone before losing to Banks.
The Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view event takes place on July 9th in Dallas, Texas at the American Airlines Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. This will be an exclusive Raw brand event.
