We start off Raw with a MizTV segment featuring four competitors in the Money in the Bank from Raw. AJ Styles, who isn’t even in the Ladder Match, comes out upset that he lost the Last Chance qualifier without being pinned. Omos knocks an already injured Riddle off the ladder and AJ follows up by kicking him in the ankle. The good guys get their shots in ending with Drew McIntyre sending Omos over the top rope.
John Morrison def. Ricochet via countout. Ricochet and Morrison pulled off another insane acrobatic feat and if it weren’t for Miz getting in the way with his wheelchair Ricochet would have made it back in the ring.
Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal are facing each other because Drew blew Jinder off for a bike ride while Alexa Bliss is in the back playing tricks on Reginald again.
Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Doudrop, and Eva Marie def. Nikki Cross, Naomi, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss via pin fall after Nia hit Nikki with a Samoan Drop. According to Eva Marie, she was the winner. Just her.
Mustafa Ali def. Mansoor via a roll up pin fall. The closing moments of the match saw Ali get his leg trapped in the ropes. The only way Ali was able to get freed is by Mansoor aiding the official. When Mansoor reentered the ring he was rolled up for the three count.
Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre ended in Disqualification after the interference from Jinder’s henchmen Veer and Shanky. Jinder believes Drew took away an opportunity at Money in the Bank so he is going to take the sword, a family heirloom, away from Drew.
Lucha House Party def. Mace and T-Bar
Riddle def. AJ Styles via roll up pin. The entire match AJ worked Riddle’s injured ankle to the point where he should not have lost the match. On the outside of the ring Omos was being stalked by the Viking Raiders. While AJ was warning Omos of an incoming attack he doesn’t see Riddle get behind him for the roll up. Pretty good match.
Charlotte Flair is in the ring to give us a medical update on her knee. Last week after the six person tag Rhea Ripley hit Flair with a chop block to the back of the knee. With that said, there is a possibility Charlotte could miss Money in the Bank. Or so we thought. Rhea Ripley comes down to the ring also with an apparent knee injury. It turns out this was all a plot to expose the fact that Charlotte isn’t really hurt. Both women battle and joust with crutches with Charlotte retreating up the ramp.
Jaxson Ryker picked up the win for his team by himself R-Truth was too concerned with getting the 24/7 Championship. Ryker hits a sidewalk slam to get the win.
Next week we will see Ricochet take on John Morrison in a Falls Count Anywhere match and the Viking Raiders will each compete in singles matches against AJ Styles and Omos. In two weeks, in front of fans, the Viking Raiders will get their shot at the Tag Team Championships.
New Day def. MVP & Bobby Lashley via pin fall after Kofi hit Trouble in Paradise on MVP to close out the show.
The one positive I can take away from tonight’s Raw was that it was easy to get through. What did you guys think of Raw tonight?
