The Riott Squad sealed their opportunity at the gold on the RAW after Payback, when they defeated The IIconics. The losing team in that match would split, while the winners would become the number one contenders.
The Women’s Tag Team Championship Match had originally been scheduled for Clash of Champions. However, that match would be removed from the card on the day of the pay-per-view. Nia Jax confirmed that she and Baszler would be on this week’s RAW last night.
