Earlier this week the RAW Women’s Championship Backlash rematch between Asuka and Nia Jax came to an abrupt ending after Jax pushed John Cone to the mat after being unable to pin Asuka on RAW following their match at Backlash this passed Sunday. Before Cone could usher in a DQ for Jax, Asuka rolled up the disgruntled Nia with John sliding in for a clear bias quick count.
