Away from a lengthy and cryptic John Cena promo, this week’s RAW began some sexy new feuds and tied up some loose ends before Money in the Bank.
Money in the Bank Qualifier Battle Royal: Riddle picked up the win after an RKO on the apron. This was a fun opener to the go-home RAW before Money in the Bank. Sad though that AJ Styles and Ricochet won’t be in the MITB match.
WWE Unified Tag Team Champion Jey Uso w/Jimmy Uso vs. Montez Ford w/Angelo Dawkins: Ford got the big momentum win with the Frog Splash.
The Miz vs. AJ Styles: This could have been epic, but The Miz walked out of the match. These two need more time together.
Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan: Morgan got the clean win that was more about elevating Morgan than it was about burying Bliss.
Bobby Lashley vs. Alpha Academy: Otis and Chad Gable: Theory was the “special enforcer” and he jumped Lashley after the win.
Women’s MITB Last Chance Qualifier: Xia Li vs. Tamina vs. Doudrop, Becky Lynch vs. Nikki ASH vs. Shayna Baszler: Lynch got the win over DouDrop in an encounter that by its own merits, adds a much-needed spice to the Women’s MITB encounter.
