WWE Raw is marching along its path towards the upcoming WWE PayBack 2023 event, and the card is shaping up to be an exhilarating spectacle. The ongoing rivalries on Raw have laid the foundation for some thrilling matches, including Seth Rollins defending his title against Shinsuke Nakamura, Rhea Ripley facing off against Raquel Rodriguez for the Women’s Title, LA Knight taking on The Miz, and Gunther locking horns with Chad Gable for the IC Title. As this week’s episode of WWE Raw approaches, the spotlight is firmly set on the main event clash between Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus. With Zoey Stark expected to stand by Trish Stratus’ side, the burning question remains: Will there be a savior to balance the scales and aid Becky Lynch in conquering Trish Stratus?
Meanwhile, another chapter in the WWE Raw saga unfolds, with Shinsuke Nakamura poised to offer an explanation for his unexpected heel turn on Seth Rollins. The abrupt shift in Nakamura’s stance came after their six-man tag team match against Judgment Day. Additionally, the fate of the women’s tag team titles hangs in the balance as Sonya Deville’s injury has raised concerns. Will Chelsea Green seek a new partner to claim the titles, or will a vacancy be declared, potentially leading to a tournament or a chaotic fatal four-way match? The enigmatic cloud surrounding these titles might even prompt the question of whether a curse lingers over them.
Amidst these intriguing developments, the spotlight turns to the intriguing possibility of Lita’s return, potentially playing a pivotal role in helping Becky Lynch vanquish Trish Stratus on the path to WWE PayBack 2023.

Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus [Grudge Match] WWE Raw will descend upon the Canada Life Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, a location that resonates closely with Trish Stratus. Excluded from the SummerSlam lineup, their long-awaited singles confrontation takes the main event stage on this episode of Raw, intriguingly with no special stipulations to keep Zoey Stark away from ringside. At a glance, it might appear that the feud is culminating with Becky Lynch exacting her ‘payback’ (pun intended) for her previous contentious loss to Trish Stratus at Night of Champions, an encounter where Zoey Stark’s interference tilted the scales in favor of Trish.
However, this narrative isn’t quite complete without the presence of Lita. Lita emerges as the missing puzzle piece, as Trish Stratus confessed to orchestrating Lita’s backstage assault to eliminate her and ensure both Becky and Lita’s tag team title loss. This maneuver allowed her to focus her attention solely on Becky in the recent months. Lita’s return holds pivotal significance; her role lies in settling the score, neutralizing Zoey Stark’s ringside influence, and aiding Becky in toppling Trish. This anticipated moment should pave the way for a tag team collision at PayBack: Becky Lynch and Lita joining forces against Trish Stratus and Zoey Stark.
Prediction: Becky Lynch (with Lita’s intervention)
