From there, we shoot to the ring and jump right into this week’s red brand action.
Special International Edition Of MizTV With Roman Reigns
This week’s RAW kicks off with a “special international edition” of Miz TV.
The Miz talks about his upcoming Steel Cage match against Shane McMahon at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. He then introduces his guest for this week, SmackDown Live Superstar Roman Reigns.
“The Big Dog” is immediately interrupted by Elias, who comes out with his trademark guitar. Shane McMahon also ends up coming out. Elias and Reigns square off until Miz and Bobby Lashley, who also entered the scene, attack him in a three-on-one beat down.
Shane McMahon ends up announcing Bobby Lashley and Elias vs. The Miz and Roman Reigns for the show. That match is actually up next. Stay tuned!
The Miz & Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley & Elias
In the match that was just put together after a wild installment of Miz TV, The Miz and Roman Reigns managed to pick up the “W” over the duo of Bobby Lashley and Elias.
The match saw interference from Shane McMahon which led to the finish via Disqualification.
After the match was over, Reigns fired back up and took out Shane while The Miz fought off the other guys with a steel chair.

Video Package For WWE Universal Championship Match At WWE Money In The Bank
After the tag-team match ended, we shoot to a video segment. This segment saw an in-depth video package that told the story and built-up the highly-anticipated WWE Universal Championship showdown between “The Architect” Seth Rollins and “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles.
Backstage: Shane McMahon, Braun Strowman & Sami Zayn
From there, we go to a backstage segment. This segment saw the cameras backstage at the O2 Arena where Shane McMahon calls Braun Strowman to his office.
“The Monster Among Men” shows up and we see Sami Zayn as well, who was already in the office with Shane-O-Mac. Zayn is complaining.
Shane ends up announcing Braun Strowman vs. Sami Zayn for later in the show. The winner of the match will get Strowman’s current spot in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match at the upcoming WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
Mojo Rawley vs. Apollo Crews
After the backstage segments and some brief down time, we head back to the ring for our next match of the evening.
In one-on-one action, Mojo Rawley took on Apollo Crews. This was essentially a squash match, with Rawley getting the showcase spotlight. He picked up in a quick win, and did so in dominant fashion.
Winner: Mojo Rawley
Backstage: Nikki Cross’ New Character
After the Mojo Rawley/Apollo Crews squash match, we shoot to the back for another backstage segment.
We see Nikki Cross. She is performing her new gimmick, as she teased in a recent social media promo that made the rounds recently. She comes off somewhat timid and very calm. Almost the opposite traits she displayed in her former character.
It is announced that Nikki Cross will be replacing Alexa Bliss in the Fatal-4-Way Match.
WWE Money In The Bank Double Contract Signing
We head back inside the O2 Arena, which now features a decked out ring for the Double Contract Signing for WWE Money In The Bank.
With that said, we shoot inside the ring where Charlotte Flair, Lacey Evans and WWE RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch come out for the contract signing.
Lynch received a huge ovation from the London fans. The crowd was also popping pretty good for particular lines she dropped during her promo.
While trying to give her retort, “The Queen” was given the “What?!” treatment from the fans. The crowd didn’t seem particularly interested in anything Evans had to say, either.
When all was said-and-done, the contracts were signed for the Lynch vs. Evans RAW Women’s Title Match and the Lynch vs. Charlotte SmackDown Women’s Title Match at the 5/19 WWE Money In The Bank PPV at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

After putting pen-to-paper, Evans and Charlotte puts boots-to-asses … metaphorically speaking. The two ended up putting “The Man” through a table in the ring to end the segment.
Baron Corbin vs. Ricochet
From there we take a short break before heading back to the ring for our next contest.
Baron Corbin and Ricochet make their way to the squared circle for the third match of the evening. This was a pretty good little match. The fans were way into Ricochet. In the end, however, Corbin ended up getting his hand raised.
Winner: Baron Corbin
Backstage: Cesaro, Rey Mysterio & His Son
After the Corin-Ricochet bout, we shoot behind-the-scenes for another backstage segment.
We see Rey Mysterio and his son when Cesaro enters the picture. Cesaro insults Mysterio’s son one too many times, which leads to a brawl between Mysterio and Cesaro.
Rey Mysterio vs. Cesaro
The backstage chaos involving Rey Mysterio and Cesaro has now made its’ way out to the ring.
Our next contest is Mysterio and Cesaro in one-on-one action. This was kept pretty basic and obviously Mysterio didn’t do a whole lot, but the crowd still seemed to enjoy it.
The finish saw Mysterio pick up the win.
Winner: Rey Mysterio
Backstage: The Revival
We head backstage again for another segment. The Revival are shown. The two cut promos about how they are done with being embarrassed. They make it clear that they are on a mission to get redemption. They end up challenging The Usos to a match.
Backstage: Bray Wyatt Returns With Another “Firefly Fun House” Segment
From there it was everyone’s favorite time of the week — Firefly Fun House time!
Bray Wyatt returned with the latest installment of his much-talked-about segment. The segment featured a lot of the usual bells and whistles we have become accustomed to. The theme was to tease that Bray Wyatt will soon be returning to the ring.
WWE Men’s MITB Ladder Match Spot On-The-Line
Braun Strowman vs. Sami Zayn
After that awesome segment, we head back to the ring for the previously announced match between Braun Strowman and Sami Zayn.
As announced earlier in the show, Strowman’s spot in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match will be on-the-line, meaning a win for Sami Zayn would result a change to the currently advertised match for the 5/19 PPV.
When all was said and done, that is exactly what happened.
Zayn ended up picking up the win over “The Monster Among Men” after Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre did a run-in and interfered. With the win. Zayn now replaces Strowman in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match at the WWE PPV in Hartford, CT. later this month.
After this match, Strowman ended up firing back up and putting Sami Zayn through a table to end the RAW broadcast on the USA Network.
Winner and NEW Men’s MITB Ladder Match Participant: Sami Zayn
