Zelina Vega and her crew crashed MVP’s “VIP Lounge”
MVP hosted the red brand’s entrants in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match – Rey Mysterio, Aleister Black and Apollo Crews – for a special “VIP Lounge” as they prepare to risk it all. However, Zelina Vega, United States Champion Andrade, Angel Garza & Austin Theory soon arrived to declare that they should be in the Ladder Match, which quickly turned into a brawl that tore apart the “VIP Lounge.”
Rey Mysterio, Aleister Black & Apollo Crews def. Andrade, Angel Garza & Austin Theory
At the climax of an action-packed Six-Man Tag Team throwdown, Apollo Crews pinned United States Champion Andrade to pick up the win for his team.
Nia Jax bashed Asuka and Shayna Baszler with a ladder
The three Raw entrants in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match were supposed to meet in a Triple Threat Match, but they instead engaged in a wild brawl that culminated with Jax taking out both of her rivals with a ladder.
Bobby Lashley def. Denzel Dejournette
The All Mighty asked Lana to stay behind for this match, as she was just too beautiful that he couldn’t help but get distracted. That seemingly paid off, as Lashley made quick work of his opponent, putting Dejournette away with a devastating Spear.
Liv Morgan def. Ruby Riott
Ruby Riott wanted to prove that Liv Morgan’s win last week was a fluke, but she came up short once again, falling victim to Oblivion. After the bell, Morgan made it clear that she has her sights on the Raw Women’s Championship.
Jinder Mahal def. Akira Tozawa
After nearly a year away from the ring, The Modern Day Maharaja returned and made a major statement, defeating Akira Tozawa with the Khallas.
United States Champion Andrade def. Apollo Crews
After pinning Andrade in Six-Man Tag Team action earlier in the night, Crews tried to make it two in a row in this title bout, but he came up short in a United States Championship Match that seemingly left him with an injury.
Ricochet & Cedric Alexander def. Ever-Rise
Ricochet & Alexander continued to show why they’re a team to be reckoned with, but following their win over Chase Parker & Matt Martel, MVP issued a challenge on behalf of Shane Thorne & Brendan Vink, who were fuming after being defeated by the two aerial artists.
Drew McIntyre turned the tables on Seth Rollins during their contract signing
It wouldn’t be a WWE contract signing without a little chaos. After heated words were exchanged, Drew McIntyre gave Seth Rollins a receipt for his attack two weeks ago, nailing The Monday Night Messiah with a Glasgow Kiss and dropping Rollins’ disciple Murphy with a Claymore.
Tonight on Raw: Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins to sign the dotted line
Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins are set for a collision course at WWE Money In The Bank, but they’ll have to get through the contract signing tonight without tearing each other to shreds.
The WWE Champion has been on fire since winning the title at WrestleMania, but The Monday Night Messiah cunningly saw the opportunity to end McIntyre’s recent run as a perfect way to captivate the Raw masses with his gospel. After the Scottish Superstar’s recent win over United States Champion Andrade, Rollins entered the ring to blindside the WWE Champion with a Superkick and two vicious Stomps to put the title match in motion.
What fireworks will be in store this time when the two rivals meet on Raw to make their title match official?
