An awful lot happened at Money In The Bank on Sunday night, but as always there was no time to stop and smell the roses. That's because on Monday night it was time for Raw and there was an awful lot to address. For starters, the red brand won both the men's and women's MITB matches on Sunday night, pretty impressive. On top of that, Alexa Bliss wasted no time in cashing hers in, sending shockwaves through the entire women's division by doing so. Those actions were naturally addressed right at the start of Raw, it would have been hard not to do that, and kicked things off with the first big moment of the evening.
4. Celebrating With a Zig Zag-Claymore
Successfully defending the Intercontinental Title at Money In The Bank wasn't enough for Seth Rollins. On Raw he wanted to defend it again, so he issued an open challenge. The Architect was probably a little worried when both Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre came to the ring, but relieved when it was The Showoff stepped between the ropes. Well, if he was relieved, he shouldn't have been. Ziggler managed to pull off the unthinkable and defeat the now former title holder, making him a six-time Intercontinental Champion. Ziggler grabbed a handful of Rollins' tights to help him get the three count, but The Kingslayer's complaints were quickly silenced when McIntyre joined the two of them and beat down Rollins, finishing things off with a ZigZag-Claymore alongside The Showoff.
3. Bobby Lashley With A Spear?!
So apparently WWE has not forgotten that Brock Lesnar is still under contract with them and that he is currently in possession of one of their major titles. Angle revealed that a deal has been struck with The Beast pertaining to when he will defend the Universal Title next. Who will be his challenger though? Two men who think they deserve shots are Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley. Both men joined Angle in the ring and exchanged some heated words. The GM announced that both will be in a multi-man match at Extreme Rules to decide a number one contender, but they also had to team up and face The Revival first of all. Reigns and Lashley won of course, but it was how they won that caught everyone's attention. The Big Dog was about to deliver a spear when Lashley tagged himself in and hit the spear himself. That was a very bold move.
2. Braun Uses Balor As A Weapon
Lashley and Reigns aren't the only Raw Superstars who believe that they can be the one to take down The Beast Incarnate of course. That was made abundantly clear when Raw GM, Kurt Angle was swarmed by other potential candidates backstage just minutes after his announcement. Finn Balor threw his hat into the ring, as did Kevin Owens, Baron Corbin, and last but not least, Braun Strowman. Their individual claims quickly turned into bickering, so a match was made pitting Strowman and Balor against Corbin and KO in the night's main event. Balor and the Monster In The Bank used their tremendous size difference to their advantage pretty early on. Strowman relived his strongman days by summoning up the strength to lift his tag team partner high above his hea, and tossed him out of the ring onto both of their opponents.
1. Little Miss Bliss Goes Through A Table
Alexa Bliss had a pretty big night on Sunday at Money In The Bank. Not only did she become only the second ever woman to win a MITB contract, but two hours later she became the third ever Superstar to cash it in successfully on the same night. Naturally, that angered both former champion Nia Jax and the woman who looked as if she was about to beat her, Ronda Rousey. Bliss opened Raw with a celebration of her becoming champion, and it did not take long for Rousey to emerge for some revenge. After laying out Kurt Angle, The Rowdy One turned her attention back to Bliss and planted her firmly through a table.
