*OFFICIAL* Raw Discussion Thread: 28th May 2018

Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns might have defeated Jinder Mahal and Kevin Owens this past Monday night on Raw, but they hardly looked like victors when the dust settled. Following the match, The Modern Day Maharaja lashed out with a steel chair barrage that felled both Shield brothers.

In the wake of that ferocious beatdown, The Big Dog will have an opportunity for retribution when he meets Mahal one-on-one at WWE Money in the Bank. However, Rollins — ever the fighting champion — will be first to battle Mahal when he defends his workhorse title against the former WWE Champion this coming Monday night on Raw.

Can The Architect continue to build his legacy as one of the most impressive titleholders in recent history, or will Mahal carry the Intercontinental Championship to WWE Money in the Bank? To find out, tune in to Raw, tonight.

After failing to qualify for the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match in their first attempts, seven Superstars will clash in a Last Chance Women’s Money in the Bank Qualifying Gauntlet Match to attain the final Raw spot in the harrowing Ladder Match on Sunday, June 17.

The match will start with two Superstars in the ring, and a new Superstar will enter the bout whenever a competitor is defeated. The winner will be the last woman standing after all seven Superstars have entered the fray. With all three members of The Riott Squad in this match, plus warring former best friends Bayley and Sasha Banks, sparks are sure to fly. But don’t count out the veteran tenacity of Mickie James or the powerhouse offense of Dana Brooke.

With a “Money” opportunity on the line, these seven Superstars are sure to leave it all in the ring. Who will be the last woman standing? Tune in to Raw to find out.

Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax’s challenge to Ronda Rousey at the NBCUniversal Upfront was amicable enough, but the relationship between these two beloved Superstars seems to have cooled as of late, thanks in no small part to the machinations of Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon.

After Stephanie stirred the pot during the Raw Women’s Title Match Contract Signing for WWE Money in the Bank, The Baddest Woman on the Planet vowed to take The Irresistible Force’s title — and her arm — on Sunday, June 17.

Can Jax counter Rousey’s bold words before their anticipated title clash?

Last Monday night, Braun Strowman faced Finn Bálor one-on-one for the first time ever on Raw, and despite a valiant effort from WWE’s first Universal Champion, The Monster Among Men secured a decisive victory. Undoubtedly, the rest of the participants in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match were paying very close attention to this bout’s outcome.

Will Strowman’s strong performance change the strategy for the other Superstars vying for the coveted Men’s Money in the Bank contract? Moreover, can anyone slow the momentum of this seemingly unstoppable juggernaut?

Last week, Sami Zayn introduced the WWE Universe to Bobby Lashley’s “sisters” in an effort to sully the reputation of the returning Superstar, and even though Lashley at first seemed to take the mockery in stride — the siblings were three men in disguise, after all — the powerhouse pummeled the imposters after Zayn’s continued mockery, while Zayn scurried away to the relative safety of the entrance ramp.

Lashley is as good-natured as they come, but Zayn might have gone too far by mocking his family. Might we see Lashley retaliate against the conniving co-founder of The “Yep!” Movement?

Don’t miss any of the action on Monday Night Raw!
