WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Will Sasha Banks Defeat Asuka Tonight?

Tonight's Monday Night RAW looks to have major SummerSlam implications.

The July 27 episode of WWE's flagship show will see one title match, a number one contenders match, and some Extreme Rules rematches.

First, Sasha Banks will take on Asuka for the RAW Women's Championship. Banks "defeated" Asuka at Extreme Rules after Sasha's best friend Bayley acted as a referee and counted the pin when the actual official was incapacitated. Stephanie McMahon announced last week that the two will have a rematch tonight to determine who is the true RAW Women's Champion.

Stephanie also put a twist on tonight's stipulation. The title can be lost by disqualification, which may keep Bayley at bay during the match.

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will take on Dolph Ziggler tonight in another Extreme Rules rematch. What was originally a WWE Championship opportunity has now turned into a non-title affair. Despite that, Ziggler will look to get one over on the champ but he'll have to overcome whatever stipulation McIntyre chooses tonight.

This year's SummerSlam will go down in late August, and the RAW Tag Team Champions, The Street Profits, will see who their opponent is tonight. The Viking Raiders, Andrade and Angel Garza, and Ricochet and Cedric Alexander will square off in a triple threat match to determine the number one contender. Who will Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins face at SummerSlam?

Randy Orton is scheduled to start tonight's Monday Night RAW with a message for the WWE Universe. After dispatching The Big Show last week, what's next for the "Legend Killer"?

Here's everything that happened on the July 27 episode of Monday Night RAW.
