[Noise] >> You, you all get to witness and be.
Inspired by my rise.
By my climb back to my pride.
My title, my precious.
When I overcome your hometown girl, Bianca Belair.
And then I'll be the champion again, and nobody.
Nobody will ever be, able to beat me.
I'll be the champion forever.
No, no, no, nobody's gonna be able to stop me, not Bianca, not Sonya, not Liv, not Dana Brooke, not Tamina, not- >> What? Is it? It is.
>> Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
>> Asuka is back.
>> The Empress of Tomorrow, making her returns on Monday Night, Raw., >>, Awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome,! Awesome.! >>! [Laugh]! >>! [Noise]! >>.
Will stop you [LAUGH]? Because no one is ready for Asuka, whoa.
>> [APPLAUSE] >> Whoa.! >>! [Noise]! >>! You! Basically, did the same thing that Asuka did to you.? You.
Surprise! Bianca! Belair? Who wasn't expecting you and and you won? That championship at 26-? >>? Roll up from Asuka.? Uh-Oh,? Uh-Oh,? Kick out just in time, to the armbar.
>>? Same old transition.! >>! I! Hadn't! Handed Bianca! My title! Beforehand.
Deserve more respect than that.
Okay! Byron? >> Triangle transition now from Asuka.
>> Absolutely true.
It was a magnanimous selfless act from you, Becky to present Asuka respectfully with your Women's Championship at the time.
>> Look at Bianca.
Look at Bianca., >> The triangle, and, my god, the power of Bianca Belair, looking to rampage her out and she does.
You have felt that power, before.
>> Becky just passed me a note asking that you no longer speak about her, [LAUGH]., >> Becky just got herself into the match.
>> Done with commentary, I see.
>> [NOISE] >> Bringing Bianca Belair into the steps.
>> [NOISE] >> Becky Lynch, couldn't even sit by.
Let's the spotlight be on someone else.
Beyond Asuka, beyond Bianca Belair knows, it's gonna be on about Big Time Beck.
>> Asuka called Becky a crybaby earlier after the most selfless act of Becky Lynch's career., >> Now, taking it out on Asuka! >> But Becky can handle a little name, calling out, is that where we're at?, >> No, Becky simply believed she deserve better treatment.
>> [NOISE] >> Right now, it's Asuka, looking like a baby.
>> [NOISE] >> She, believes in a comeback.
She believes she's destined to reclaim her title and Asuka's is in the way.
She's trying to show her now, Manhandle slam.
>> [NOISE] >> Uh-oh.
>> The strategy of Becky Lynch, allowing herself to be distracted with Bianca, who, in Bianca's defense, hasn't done anything wrong out.
Just., >>, [NOISE], >> How Bianca used as a weapon?, >> I.
Think Lynch was trying to draw Belair into striking her to win the match by disqualification.
Another example of the veteran brilliance, a win by any means, earned the opportunity.
>> Bianca pied with the chair, Becky needs to focus on Asuka.
She hasn't been yet, but now, very upset.
There is irate and Lynch now.
It's Asuka's umbrella.
>> Turn around, ref., >>, [NOISE], >> Mist to the face, shoulders, down, one, two, three, a win for Asuka.
>> Here's, your winner, Asuka.
Asuka, was looking for the Asuka Lock.
>> My god.
>> [NOISE] >> Kick to the face just took out.
>> Asuka inadvertently, striking around with the champion.
>> Count, is at seven.
>> Asuka's got to hurry.
>> [NOISE] >> At.
The last possible second, Asuka makes the count, but hold on.
>> Shoulders down.
>> One, two three.
[SOUND] >> A win for Becky Lynch.
>> Bianca still hasn't moved.
>> Here's your winner, Becky Lynch.
>> [NOISE] >> See, some people, some people.
They collect stamps.
Some people collect friends, me, me, I collect enemies.
And I'm gonna, keep collecting them as I rise to the top, because that lets me know that I'm on track., And I know I'm on track, because I am days away from regaining my title.
At Hell in Cell., >>, [APPLAUSE], >>, Now, I know the odds are stacked against me, but haven't they always been? That, never stopped me before, because I defied the odds, I defy convention.
>> Your are still a big time, baby, yeah, [SOUND].
>> I'm, a baby, I'm, a baby, I'm, not the one- >> [FOREIGN] No one is ready for Asuka.
>> [APPLAUSE] >> Not Bianca, not Becky, because at Hell in a Cell, I'm ready to be the new Raw Women Champion.
>> [NOISE] >> So, Asuka- >> [NOISE] >> I do respect you, but now, girl.
You kicked me last week.
So in this match.
Tonight, I'm gonna have a lot to say.
>> [NOISE], >>, And, Becky, girl, I cannot wait to give you a piece of my mind on Sunday at Hell in a Cell [LAUGH].
>> [NOISE], >> Because I.
Don't care what my eyes are.
The only percentage that I'm sure about is that this is 100% not going anywhere.
>> [APPLAUSE], >>, And, If I have to, I will 100% drop you just like I did at WrestleMania >> [NOISE] >> Cheap shot from Becky Lynch.
>> Here comes Asuka now, going after Lynch.
>> Here's the combustible situation to kick off.
Monday Night Raw.
>> Here's the taste of what it's gonna be like on Sunday.
>>, We're gonna get a preview later tonight when Asuka and Belair square off., We're gonna preview right, now., >>, It may start right.
>> And the opportunistic Lynch now, hoisting, up, KOD incoming.
>> It, might happen a week.
>> [LAUGH] Man.
This does not end well for Becky Lynch., >>, [NOISE], >>.
Both of these superstars have been distracted tonight and they have both paid.
Asuka wants the Asuka Lock, Belair fighting with everything in her power.
>> Belair understands the desperation time right now, trying to wiggle free somehow.
>> Can't be distracted from this Triple Threat.
That's what I'm gonna be the winner.
>> Asuka, trying to get that right hook in and really get pressure on, it.
>> And, the wheel of determination of the Raw's Women's Champion.
>> At, this juncture, Becky, you've got to be expecting to just pick the bones, this Sunday.
>>, I, sure, am, I, sure, am, I just hope they keep going.
We got three hours of Monday Night Raw, I wanna see these fight all night long.
>> Great transition to the back.
First goes, Asuka, here comes Belair.
>> Asuka out of the way just in time.
>> Inside cradle, that's it, blocked by Belair., >> Reversal and that's three.
>> And wait a minute., >> Wait, wait.
>> Becky Lynch in the ring.
>> Becky Lynch wasting no time inserting herself the moment.
>>, Listen, Becky Lynch is out here for a reason.
This must be it.
>> Exactly, soften up some more, soften up.
>> This is Manhandle slam.
>> Soften up Bianca Belair.
>> This is brilliant.
This is a perfect illustration of how clever, of how crappy, Becky Lynch truly is.
Why Becky Lynch, this Sunday? Maybe your next Raw Women's Champion.
