WWE RAW Coverage: MITB Primer

Away from a few filler matches, the go-home show before Money in the Bank had enough storyline development and in-ring action to satisfy.

Matches:

Roman Reigns and The Miz vs. Elias and Bobby Lashley: This turned into a match after Shane McMahon, Lashley and Elias attacked Reigns and Miz during Miz TV. By the end of it, McMahon got the match thrown out for getting involved. Reigns tried to get the last laugh though with a Swan Dive that took everyone out, but it was Miz with a Chair that really evened the odds.

Mojo Rawley vs. Apollo Crews: After Crews injured his knee, Rawley took over and won with the Alabama Slam.

Baron Corbin vs. Ricochet: A quick, but fast-paced one as Corbin countered a Dorado DDT variation into the End of Days.

Fatal Four-Way: Natalya vs. Nikki Cross vs. Naomi vs. Dana Brooke: Cross crazily got the win with the Three-Handled Credenza.

Rey Mysterio vs. Cesaro: This match ran way too long. Cesaro couldn’t hit the big maneuver and Mysterio won with the 619 and Frog Splash.

Falls Count Anywhere: Winner Gets MITB Opportunity: Braun Strowman vs. Sami Zayn: Interference from Baron Corbin helped Zayn get an advantage, but they couldn’t put Strowman away. Drew McIntyre then got involved too but they couldn’t put Strowman away. However, after being put through a table and a Claymore, Zayn got the win. Strowman ended up with the last laugh, however, as he Chokeslammed Zayn through the announce table.
