“I wanted to say this: ‘Welcome to Monday Night Raw,'” he snapped Nikki ASH. Since her character and name changed, everything smiles at the Scotswoman, who last week exchanged her Money in the Bank briefcase to win the Raw Women’s Championship. Thanks to that factor, she was in charge of opening the red show this Monday. He was taking a mass bath … but it did not last long. Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley interrupted her. Both claimed a title opportunity. The authority took note and took the fairest path: at SummerSlam (August 21) there will be a triple threat for the belt. Despite the announcement, Flair asked for more and was given it. To close the show there was a heads-up between the ‘Queen’ and Nikki ASH Charlotte grew, since in a very tough fight and with many alternatives, Flair was in serious trouble, he achieved a triumph that gives him a lot of morale for the future : “Nikki, look me in the face. No one’s in my league,” he snapped. And ASH replied: “I showed that I can win. Next week I challenge you to a rematch.”. It will be given. Flair accepted before beating up the champion to close out the show.
For its part, Bobby Lashley appeared in the ring with the aim of giving an answer to Goldberg, who a week before had challenged him. MVP was in charge of speaking and when the WWE champion was going to speak, Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin came on stage. They asked for a chance and Lashley was clear: I can beat you both. He did it and even the count of three was achieved with one rival on top of the other. He is in great shape and is superior to the vast majority of his rivals. He did not reveal anything, but the message is clear: the fighter who wants to dethrone him will not have it easy.
Regarding titles, Reginald retained the 24th Championship / against R-Truth and AJ Styles and Omos also kept Raw tag team belts against The Vinkings Raiders (Erik and Ivar). It was all over when the giant entered the scene. It was not the only moment of the night in which the champions were protagonists. Riddle was fighting John Morrison. Promise had managed to avoid The Miz, but was distracted when Omos smashed his skateboard.and. That cost him the victory and then a beating of the monarchs in pairs. In that division, but female, Raw left doubts. Natalya and Tamina beat Eva Marie and Doudrop. The victory went to the belt bearers, but Natalya left with obvious gestures of pain and could be injured. We will have to see its evolution.
While, Sheamus fell in front of Damian Priest, who removed the mask that protects his face (the Irishman suffered a broken nose several weeks ago) and that destabilized the United States champion. Another owner of a belt was also the protagonist. Karrion Kross, owner of the NXT title, visited Raw and did so with a great victory over Keith Lee. For its part, Drew McIntyre he ended up very angry. Jinder Mahal appeared with a lawyer to interrupt the Scottish segment. The Indian demanded an apology for the attack they suffered last week or would take legal action. McIntyre beat Veer in a heads up. Mahal’s lackey took a chair, but his move went awry. That will generate controversy, but just in case, Drew attacked Jinder again. In the other fight of the night, Mustafa Ali and Mansoor They beat Mace and T-Bar.
