Corey Graves: Asuka Vs. Rhea Ripley Is A Generational Clash At WWE WrestleMania 37
The Raw Women's Championship match was made official on Monday
Corey Graves has hyped the recently confirmed Raw Women's Championship match at WWE WrestleMania 37, describing is as 'a generational clash' between two former NXT Women's champions.
Rhea Ripley challenged Asuka on Monday's Raw to a match at 'Mania in April, which 'The Empress Of Tomorrow' accepted.
Both Ripley and Asuka have extensive experience of time with NXT and Graves believes the history of how both women performed on the black-and-gold brand makes their match for the RAW Women's Championship even more intriguing.
Speaking on his After The Bell Podcast, Graves said: "Think about the significance. This is almost a generational clash of NXT Women’s champions.
"You had Asuka who was undefeated, she literally was the most dominant force on the women’s division on RAW, SmackDown or NXT, since she’s come from NXT Asuka has evolved. Rhea Ripley has been the face of the NXT women’s division for the majority of the past several years, if she hasn’t been the face, she’s been in the mix.
"This is two women who took the NXT women’s division on their backs which is what got them to Monday Night RAW and now they’re going to collide on the Grandest Stage of Them All. I think that’s a pretty significant matchup."
