WWE SummerSlam: The Initial Setup
The stage was set for this epic battle when Becky Lynch, also known as ‘The Man’, lost to Trish Stratus at the WWE Night of Champions 2023.
This defeat was a result of interference from Zoey Stark. However, Lynch was given another shot at the WWE Hall of Famer after she defeated Stark in a match on RAW.

According to Fightful Select, the decision to move the match from SummerSlam 2023 to RAW was made over the weekend.
There were discussions about delaying the match to WWE Payback, but it was finally decided to hold it on the August 14th edition of RAW.
