The build for Money in the Bank continued with the latest edition of WWE Raw returning to Cleveland, Ohio. Here are the results of this week’s Raw.
Seth Rollins kicked off the show for the open challenge he issued last week. Raquel Rodriguez faced Trish Stratus in a Money in the Bank Qualifier while Rhea Ripley took on Natalya in a Night of Champions rematch. Logan also made his return in the latest episode of Monday night Raw.
Finn Balor attacks Seth Rollins
The show opened with the World Heavyweight Champion making his way to the ring. The cheers soon turned into boos after Finn Bàlor, who is set to face Rollins for the World Title on July 1st, attacked the champion from behind. After receiving a third Coup de Grâce from Bàlor, the Visionary was again attacked backstage when he was holding his ribs in pain. The attack was well executed, giving the show a hot start.
The Miz vs. Tommaso Ciampa
Tommaso Ciampa faced his former ally The Miz as he made his return to Raw this week. The A-lister was going to accept the open challenge for the World Title but instead had to issue an open challenge of his own, which was answered by a returning Ciampa. The latter dominated and won the match after dropping The Miz with a Fairy Tale Ending. It was good to see Ciampa back in the ring, and one could see that he missed it too.
Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green vs. Katana Chance and Kayden Carter
The talented duo of Chance and Carter faced Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green after their debut against the Women’s Tag Team Champions. The match was kept short, with Chance and Carter going over and pinning Deville for the thr.ee count. This squash match couldn’t benefit any of the women involved.
Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin vs. Indus Sher
Indus Sher, accompanied by Jinder Mahal, faced Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. The team of Veer Mahaan and Sanga continued to dominate as they defeated their opponents in another short match of the night. Indus Sher can be a potential threat to the Tag Team Division if built well.
Logan Paul Returns
Logan Paul returned to his hometown in the latest episode of Raw. The YouTuber was sitting on top of the ladder in the middle of the squared circle, provoking the crowd before announcing that he will be competing in the Men’s Ladder Match in London. Paul was soon interrupted by the other competitors including Ricochet, Shinsuke Nakamura, LA Knight, Santos Escobar and Butch. A brawl breaks out and ends with Paul taking out Escobar and Ricochet with a somersault senton.
Adding Logan Paul to the match would lead to great bumps and spots, as no matter how much heat the YouTuber gets, he’s a talented wrestler. LA Knight received a huge ovation, a star in the making.
The recap of Monday night Raw continues in the second part.
