From the time Becky Lynch was taken down as part of Sasha Banks’ return attack three weeks ago, it was pretty clear the direction WWE was headed.
On Monday’s edition of Raw from Baltimore, the red-brand’s Women’s title match was confirmed for Clash of Champions, as Lynch will defend the title against Banks. On Raw, Lynch challenged Banks to a fight then and there, which Banks countered by saying she’d rather fight for the belt at the pay-per-view.
The match marks the ninth total bout for the September 15 pay-per-view, and the eighth for an actual championship belt.
The card so far is as follows:
*Universal champion Seth Rollins vs. Braun Strowman
*WWE champion Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton
