WWE Raw Results found Asuka backstage where she was being interviewed about her match at Clash of Champions, and who was the greater threat to her championship: Mickie James or Zelina Vega.
Asuka was in the middle of responding when Billie Kay came in doing a carnival leader’s copy of Asuka.
Kay ran off a couple of possible opponents when Peyton Royce said she could offer a chance to her.
Kay added for either of them.
Asuka asked if they’re still friends. Kay said they are, but Royce seemed more distant from her friend.
Royce said nothing lasts forever, and Asuka said she’s ready for Royce tonight.

Bianca Belair is “EST of WWE”; 24/7 Championship Shenanigans
We returned to a Bianca Belair vignette called Strongest that showed her outworking one of the male wrestlers in the workout room.
She’s closed it out saying she’s the “EST of WWE.”
It was followed by a beautiful beach scene where Akira Tozawa was searching for R-Truth and the 24/7 Championship in the ocean.
Truth then arrived on a path, but Tozawa and the ninja referee were in the water.
Truth spotted a shark, and called out “Sharknado” dropped his championship belt and ran.
He then returned with flippers, goggles, and a snorkel to find his “baby.”
The shark returned, prompting a “Sharknado 2” cry, and he found his belt and a shredded ninja outfit.
Truth thought it was Tozawa, but it’s was probably the referee ninja.
