Another Monday, another Monday Night RAW. As the WWE draws closer to the Money in the Bank PPV in June, the flagship show continues to determine which men and women will be in the titular ladder matches. That’s not all though, as we will learn more about Bobby Lashley’s weird backstage interview where he talked about his sisters.
As seen last week, Sami Zayn promised to bring Bobby Lashley’s sisters to this week’s RAW. It’s still unclear what Zayn has in mind, or if this is all some kind of trick to throw Lashley off his game.
Jinder Mahal cut a promo for social media recently, promising to meet Roman Reigns in “his yard” tonight. Expect to see these two Superstars to continue their feud. As for other matches to expect, Seth Rollins’ open challenge for the Intercontinental Championship is still running, so expect to see a match with him tonight against a mystery opponent. We also may see some action from the four RAW Superstars confirmed for the Men’s Money in the Bank match: Bobby Roode, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor and Kevin Owens.
