It will once again be a battle of two architects of WWE’s women’s wrestling revolution for the WWE Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.
Sasha Banks will defend her recently acquired championship against Charlotte at WWE’s biggest event of the summer. Banks defeated Charlotte to win the championship for the first time on the inaugural Raw of the post-draft era.
WWE tweeted this morning, “BREAKING: WWE Women’s Champion @SashaBanksWWE will defend her title vs. @MsCharlotteWWE at @SummerSlam Aug. 21 on @WWENetwork.”
It was reported by Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com that though the title change was originally supposed to happen at SummerSlam, the decision was made to kick off the brand extension with a big title change and important moment on Monday’s Raw.
