We get the contract signing between Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre. Also we get Samoa Joe back on commentary.
MVP and the VIP Lounge opens Raw. He discusses Money In The Bank PPV and then introduces Rey Mysterio. MVP’s guests are Mysterio, Aleister Black and his pick to win Apollo Crews.
MVP asked each competitor about winning Money In The Bank. He answers for each three competitors, Mysterio would cement his legacy, Black would just catapult his star, and Crews, MVP is unsure.
When Apollo tries to give a response he is interrupted by Zelina Vega, Austin Theory, Angel Garza, and US Champion, Andrade. Vega, of course gets the mic first, says no one wants to hear what Crews has to say. The WWE Universe can’t get enough of Andrade, Angel Garza and Austin Theory…the future of Monday Night RAW.
Her three men are the future of Monday Night RAW….the future that Mysterio, Black, and Crews, represents means the MITB isn’t on RAW. So what’s gonna happen? Vega said they have to do what’s right and show the WWE Universe what is right, they should give up their spots.
Rey Mysterio isn’t having it. He thinks their purpose is to start a fight….well that is exactly what happens. We go to commercial.
Aleister Black, Apollo Crews, and Rey Mysterio defeated Andrade, Angel Garza, and Austin Theory via Pinfall
If you though, Crews, Black, and Mysterio would give up their spots to Money In The Bank you would be wrong. While Vega’s men tried their best, it wasn’t enough and Vega was not happy about the loss.
Before a commercial break we get a glimpse into moments of Triple H’s career.
Back from commercial we get another moment important to Triple H’s career, this moment happens to be Triple H beating Sting at Wrestlemania.
Afterwards, Charly Caruso meets up with Andrade and Zelina Vega. She asked what happened during the match, as Andrade got pinned. Vega told him his amigos let him down. Andrade said his opponents wouldn’t beat him one on one, and then left.
Apollo Crews showed up, not long after Andrade left. He said he couldn’t help but hear what the sore losers were complaining about. Andrade came back and hit Crews, saying he would put the US Title on the line. Crews slapped Andrade in the face, but before anything could continue Vega intervened. Vega said a title match for tonight will happen.
We get a recap of what is occurring with Drew McInytre and Seth Rollins.
Before commercial, we get another Triple H moment, this time he defeated the Rock to retain the title.
Right before the next match, another Triple H moment happens.
Asuka vs Nia Jax vs Shayna Baszler never actually happens
Asuka did give an impassioned promo, but this wouldn’t help her out. Once Shayna made her entrance this was a fight. The bell never rang, but these woman beat each other up as much as they could anyway.
Before his match, Bobby Lashley told Lana she was a distraction. Apparently Lana is to beautiful….sure Bobby.
Bobby Lashley defeated Denzel Dejournette via Pinfall (Spear)
Unfortunately for Denzel, his RAW moment was destroyed by Lashley. This match didn’t last too long, and probably less than if Lana was ringside.
Before break we see a video of the feud between Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott. They have a match next.
Liv Morgan defeated Ruby Riott via Pinfall (Ob-Livion)
Two weeks in a row. An impressive feat for Liv, especially after her association with Ruby.
Liv got interviewed after the match by Byron Saxton. She said she has and will have more chapters to come, she is still discovering who she is. She is confident she’ll figure it out.
Another Triple H moment, before heading backstage where Charly Caruso interviewed Nia Jax. Nia wasn’t a big fan of Charly’s questions, no one can do anything about Nia’s actions.
The Viking Raiders give a promo. They said they’re history shows the truth. Again, the Street Profits have never beaten them.
Jinder Mahal defeated Akira Tozawa via Pinfall
We haven’t seen Mahal in a long time, but he was dominating in his return. He manhandled Tozawa, to the point Tozawa truly had no chance at victory.
Before a commercial break, Andrade and Zelina Vega are talking when Charly Caruso shows up. Vega won’t allow an interview to be conducted. Angel Garza showed up and flirted with Caruso though.
Andrade defeated Apollo Crews via Referee Stoppage
Apollo gave it his all, he truly put in all the effort. Vega was terrified this was the end of Andrade’s reign a few times, but she got lucky.
After a commercial, Tom told us Apollo Crews was being evaluated by WWE personnel.
The Street Profits then respond to the Viking Raiders. They said that while they could make jokes, its better to make them wrong. They want the smoke? It’s coming.
Cedric Alexander and Ricochet defeated Ever-Rise via Pinfall
While Ever-Rise is a fantastic team, Alexander and Ricochet know each other so well. Alexander and Ricochet are working so well as a team, its refreshing.
After their victory, MVP appears on the tron with Shane Thorne and Brendan Vink. MVP wanted to introduce them to Monday Night RAW, apparently their rematch could be straight up ballin’.
Before the contract signing, Charly Caruso attempted to catch up with Apollo Crews. Crews was on crutches and he was very emotional, not up for questions.
We then went through the recent history of Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre. Contract signing is next.
Jerry Lawler is in charge of the contract signing. He explained things and introduced both men. Once both men made their way into the ring, Jerry left.
Drew signed the contract pretty quickly, you can sign the contract within 20 seconds. But Rollins took his sweet time, apparently this is all bigger than both of them. The WWE Universe needs a leader… Rollins is that leader.
Rollins continued to go on and on, but Drew just thought he was full of shit. Drew has no idea where his followers are, and he doesn’t care to figure it out. Drew is not out to let Rollins win the title.
He wants Rollins to shut his mouth…this means EVERYWHERE. Rollins may have tried to jump McIntyre a few weeks ago, but he didn’t finish the job.
Rollins finally signed the contract, but he talked too much. McIntyre then gave him a Glasgow Kiss, but before he could do more damage, Murphy showed up.
For Murphy’s troubles, or for following the Messiah, he was given a Claymore.
Rollins may have been left alone, but McIntyre took out his disciple.
