Earlier today, WWE announced via their official Twitter and website that former NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will be going one-on-one with Asuka in a rematch from their singles outing last week.
The original article and tweet did not suggest that this was a title match, however, WWE UK has tweeted that Asuka will be defending her Raw Women’s Championship against “The Queen” tonight on Raw.

Here’s what WWE.com had the say on the matter, where you can see that there is no mention of Asuka’s Raw Women’s Championship being on the line:
Even with a WWE Backlash showdown against Nia Jax looming, Asuka still can’t shake her rivalry with Charlotte Flair as they’ll meet Monday .
The Raw Women’s Champion battled The Queen last week on Raw only to have her upcoming challenger emerge to derail the clash. Jax wasn’t satisfied with simply mocking her WWE Backlash opponent, as she later demolished her with a charge down the ramp.
Flair will also be motivated after losing the NXT Women’s Title at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. Perhaps a rematch with one her most heated rivals is exactly what The Queen needs to put her back on a championship course.
Who will write the next chapter in this classic rivalry?
Tune in to Monday Night Raw at 8/7 C on the USA Network to see who emerges victorious between The Empress and The Queen.
I hope this is a mistake from WWE UK. Booking a title match between Flair and Asuka is incredibly problematic, mainly because I cannot see Charlotte Flair losing two title matches in two days.
