Asuka vs Zelina Vega Announced For Clash Of Champions Kickoff Show

Asuka vs Zelina Vega - Clash of Champions

WWE have confirmed that the Raw Women’s Championship Match between Asuka and Zelina Vega will take place on the Clash of Champions Kickoff Show.

Last week’s Raw saw Vega cut her ties with Andrade and Angel Garza, before interrupting the Empress of Tomorrow to stake her claim for a championship opportunity. Both points were reinforced this week as Andrade and Angel Garza booked their own title shot at Clash of Champions by winning a Triple Threat Tag Team Match – without Vega by their side. Meanwhile, Zelina Vega herself would stoke the flames by interrupting Peyton Royce’s match with Asuka.
WWE.com posted the following preview for the Clash of Champions bout:

Zelina Vega is out to prove she’s more than just a business manager and will have a golden opportunity to back it up against Raw Women’s Champion Asuka.

“Vega showed off her potential in a gritty win over Mickie James on Raw to earn the title showdown with Asuka on the WWE Clash of Champions Kickoff Show. The Empress of Tomorrow has ruled the red brand since recapturing the title from Sasha Banks at SummerSlam. Asuka shined in a win over a legendary competitor in James but will now face a challenge from an incredibly hungry Superstar in Vega.

“Can Asuka continue her dominance on the red brand? Or will Vega show the WWE Universe what she is capable of by claiming the Raw Women’s Title?”

Don’t miss the WWE Clash of Champions Kickoff Show at 11pm (UK) this Sunday across WWE social platforms and on the award-winning WWE Network.
