Reports suggest that Monday Night Raw superstar Mickie James might have suffered an injury on this week’s edition of the red brand’s show, as suggested by the strange ending to her title match against Raw Women’s Champion Asuka.
As explained by WrestlingNews.co, the match between James and Asuka was “pretty good” and featured them trading holds while on the mat. At that point, the referee called for the bell and declared Asuka the winner due to how James apparently wasn’t able to continue. The veteran grappler was described as looking “confused” by the decision, as the match was supposed to end with the champion retaining with the Asuka Lock.
Amid all the confusion, Zelina Vega made her way to the ring and cut a promo on Asuka, seemingly stepping up as the next challenger and kicking off a new rivalry for the Raw Women’s Championship.
