• Original Plan For Tonight’s RAW After WrestleMania 39
On tonight’s episode of RAW after WrestleMania 39, a #1 contenders match took place, where Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez faced Damage CTRL (Dakota Kai & IYO SKY).
Liv & Morgan won this match and will now face Becky Lynch & Lita for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship on next week’s RAW.
Byron Saxton then interviewed Becky & Lita. Becky said she & Lita will make these Titles prestigious, and defeating Liv & Raquel on next week’s RAW is a good way to do it.
According to Sean Ross Sapp, the original plan for RAW was something else:
“Originally tonight was supposed to feature a couple of triple threat matches that would serve as a tournament for a RAW Women’s Title shot. They were scrapped very late in favor of the tag title contender match.”
Speaking of the RAW Women’s Championship, Bianca Belair was confronted by new SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley.
Rhea said Bianca is the luckiest woman in WWE because she didn’t choose her for WrestleMania 39. Ripley said she will beat Belair one day.
