First Match for SummerSlam Confirmed – Becky Lynch to Defend Raw Women’s Title Against…


The Raw Women’s Championship match has been finalized for SummerSlam.

Natalya Neidhart won a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match on Monday Night Raw this week over Alexa Bliss, Naomi and Carmella, earning the opportunity to face Becky Lynch for the title at WWE’s second biggest pay-per-view event of the year.

This upcoming title match will be particularly special for the Queen of Harts, as this year’s SummerSlam actually takes place in her home of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Following Nattie’s big win on Raw, she was confronted by The Man who made it very clear that she will not be facing her “friend” next month at the Hottest Party of the Summer. To her credit, the #1 contender fired back promising to kick Lynch’s ass and take her title when the two meet at SummerSlam.
