WWE Monday Night Raw results

Xavier Woods def. Bobby Lashley

There was trouble in paradise for WWE Champion Bobby Lashley as he lost heading into Money in the Bank despite being infuriated over The New Day’s recent accusations that he has “gone soft” and absolutely dominating throughout most of the matchup. Lashley came up short against Xavier Woods after the latter used an inside cradle to stun The All Mighty just two days before his title fight against Kofi Kingston at WWE Money in the Bank. The All Mighty was furious as he stormed out of the ring without bothering to wait for MVP.

Nikki A.S.H. def. Alexa Bliss, Asuka & Naomi in a Fatal 4-Way Match

En route to competing in Sunday’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, Asuka, Nikki A.S.H., Naomi and Alexa Bliss battled in a Fatal 4-Way Match.

Following an earlier altercation on Alexa’s Playground, though, Eva Marie and Doudrop emerged. 

When Bliss turned her attention toward Eva, Doudrop attacked Little Miss Bliss from behind and tossed the twisted Superstar over the barricade. In the wake of the assault, Alexa was nowhere to be found.

With three competitors remaining, Nikki A.S.H. overcame Asuka with a quick pin for a monumental win heading into the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

Ivar def. AJ Styles; Omos def. Erik

One week before The Viking Raiders’ Raw Tag Team Title Match against AJ Styles & Omos, Ivar scored a major victory against The Phenomenal One when he flattened his opponent into the canvas.

In the second matchup between the tag teams, Styles’ own personal colossus earned a win ahead of next week’s Raw Tag Team Title Match when he hurled Erik nearly through the canvas to score the three-count in his first singles Raw matchup.

United States Champion Sheamus def. Humberto Carrillo

After attacking Humberto Carrillo backstage before the match and delivering a follow-up Brogue Kick to his war-torn challenger seconds after the opening bell, Sheamus retained his United States Title.When The Celtic Warrior set out to inflict a post-match assault, though, Damian Priest charged the ring to put a stop to the party.

Ricochet def. John Morrison in a Falls Count Anywhere Match

Although Ricochet and Riddle were soaked backstage with a dripstick assault courtesy of The Miz and John Morrison, Morrison was all wet in the culmination of an absolutely vicious Falls Count Anywhere Match that stretched outside the ring and all the way to the backstage area. Ricochet overcame his adversary in gravity-defying fashion by delivering a splash from the top turnbuckle as Morrison laid on a ladder outside the ring.

Rhea Ripley def. Natalya

Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley reigned supreme over WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Natalya with the Riptide. Before The Nightmare could celebrate, however, Charlotte Flair attacked and locked in the excruciating Figure Eight while stretching The Nightmare over the ring apron.

Lashley destroys VIP lounge

Lashley’s rage had not subsided as Raw approached its clima and the WWE Champ was seen destroying the VIP Lounge and berating MVP. Could this spell the end of their alliance and will Lashley lose the gold to Kofi Kingston at Money in the Bank.
