Lana is the new #1 contender to RAW Women's Champion Asuka.
Tonight's WWE Draft edition of RAW saw Lana win a Dual Brand Battle Royal to become the new #1 contender. The other participants in the match were WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, Natalya, Liv Morgan, Ruby Riott, Bianca Belair, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Tamina Snuka, Lacey Evans, and Nikki Cross.
Lana left the ring earlier in the match to attack Jax at ringside, to get payback for Jax putting her through tables on recent RAW episodes. Jax countered the attack and put Lana through an announce table for the fourth time in recent weeks. Lana was never eliminated, but later appeared after it looked like Natalya had eliminated Evans to win. Lana came from behind and eliminated Natalya, to be declared the new #1 contender. Natalya had walked out on her tag team with Lana earlier in the night after they lost to Rose and Brooke.
Lana vs. Asuka has been announced for next week's RAW episode, which will be the season premiere episode on the USA Network.
