Asuka makes her way to the ring for her match against the now-former NXT Women's Champion, Charlotte Flair...but then WWE Women's Tag-Team Champions, Sasha Banks and Bayley make their way to the ring before Charlotte is able to make her entrance. Bayley says Asuka should thank them for being here and plays up how she and Sasha won the tag titles, last Friday on SmackDown. Asuka interrupts them and says this is Monday Night RAW and this is her ring. Sasha says since they are the Tag-Team Champions, they're allowed to be on any brand they so choose and then are interrupted by Charlotte Flair. Charlotte says it's cute that they show up on different brands now, much like The Queen. Charlotte goes on to say that Sasha and Bayley need to leave the ring because she and Asuka have a match and that's truly what the people want to see. The IIconics now make their way to the ring. Billie Kay says that the match the fans actually want to see is happening, this Sunday at Backlash, because they're in it. They go on to say that since they'll be there, Backlash will be iconic. Asuka yells at the pair in Japenese. Then Bayley and Sasha roast Charlotte for losing the NXT Title, last night. Charlotte says Bayley needs titles to be relevant, unlike her. Charlotte calls Bayley and Sasha trash and then all 6 women go at it until Asuka and Charlotte clear the ring and we head to a commercial break.
