Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair kicked off this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw by taking on The IIconics, who were seemingly still frustrated that they had been overlooked when it came to the Raw Women’s Team for Survivor Series on Sunday night.
Flair and Lynch made it clear that they didn’t like tagging together but were able to easily defeat The IIconics when Flair made Billie Kay tap to the Figure 8, but that wasn’t the end of their night. As the two women made their way back up the ramp, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler who was flanked by Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir invaded the show and attacked Petyon Royce and Kay who remained in the ring.
Flair and Lynch then ran back but Baszler and her team were able to exit the ring after attacking the two women so the chase was then on. Security wouldn’t allow Lynch and Flair to make their way through the crowd though, and Becky took it upon herself to floor one of the security men as well.
It was obvious that this was to build up some kind of match in the future that will also include Bayley since she has had some issues with Baszler in the build-up to the triple threat match this weekend at Survivor Series that pits Baszler up against both Becky Lynch and Bayley to decide who the most dominant Women’s Champion in WWE actually is.
There have been rumors over the past few years that the Four Horsewomen of MMA would be standing across the ring from the Four Horsewomen of WWE at some point and now with Survivor Series on the horizon, it appears that The Boss Sasha Banks and former Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey are the only women now missing from this equation.
