Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins managed to retain both of their Championships in their Winners Take All match against Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin last night at Extreme Rules, which was Evans and Corbin’s last shot at the Championships.
This means that tonight on Raw, Becky Lynch will find a new challenger for her Championship, while Seth Rollins will be looking for ways to reclaim his title from Brock Lesnar. The Beast Incarnate took advantage of Rollins’ hard-fought Extreme Rules match to cash in his Money in the Bank contract and win back the title he lost to Rollins at WrestleMania.
While Rollins obviously has his own storyline heading into SummerSlam next month, Lynch could be looking at a familiar challenger.
Alexa Bliss wasn’t able to capture the SmackDown Women’s Championship on her own at Stomping Grounds, so she called in the help of Nikki Cross and even the two women couldn’t take advantage and dethrone Bayley at Extreme Rules.
The official Monday Night Raw preview for tonight teases that if Cross and Bliss are able to co-exist following their disappointment in Philadelphia then they could decide that Becky Lynch will be their next target.
“The era of co-SmackDown Women’s Champions never quite came to pass: Thanks to a furious effort by Bayley, Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross fell short of a Handicap Match victory that would have netted them the SmackDown Women’s Title. That puts the blue jewel out of Bliss’ reach for the first time in a couple of months — unless she Wild Cards again, but that’s a whole other story — but she and Cross could conceivably make a play for Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, who is finally free of Lacey Evans following the results of WWE Extreme Rules’ main event. Of course, that’s all supposing Bliss & Cross’ friendship survives this latest in-ring disappointment. Lots of ways this one can go …”
