Reigns cuts a promo and issues a challenge to Jinder Mahal but RAW General Manager Kurt Angle interrupts. Angle says the Mahal won't be coming out. Reigns promises to do what he needs to do to get revenge on Jinder. They brawl back to the ring area and Reigns finishes Jinder off with a Superman Punch as officials break it up.

"Seth Rollins' Intercontinental Championship world tour will roll on in London on Monday's WWE Raw", writes Ryan Dilbert of Bleacher Report. Rollins launched a new challenge through social networks and Kevin Owens has not waited for Raw. Alexander has been rolling along as the champ, but after Murphy's win over former title challenger Mustafa Ali on 205 Live, the Australian is quickly lining up to be next in line for a shot at the cruiserweight title.

WWE is building toward the next big pay-per-view (PPV) which will be next month's Money in the Bank, but there is plenty left to do. The three trade pinfalls and break-ups until Bobby Roode hit the Glorious DDT on Jose and qualified for the MITB ladder match. Some UK indie wrestlers were in Jose's conga line. Even when the crowds cheer him initially because he does have so much talent, he knows exactly how to turn the fans against him by running them down and belittling their hometown or something they hold dear.

- Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas defeated Breezango after a double team finisher to Fandango. After the match, Owens demanded a rematch but was denied.

Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match - Braun Strowman vs. Finn Balor vs. Hence, he promised to bring Lashley's sister to Raw to show a different version of the behemoth.

Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match - Ember Moon vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Alexa Bliss vs. 5 TBD: Moon earned her spot right off the bat, and Flair claimed her spot the next night on SmackDown. When these two entered a slugfest, Bliss came from behind and hit Bayley with the DDT to get the pinfall win.

And Roman Reigns will be there. Big pops for all 4 competitors but Braun was the most over of any Superstar tonight.

Rousey, who signed with WWE after making an appearance at the Royal Rumble in January, made her in-ring debut at Wrestlemania when she and Kurt Angle took on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a mixed-tag match.

- Kevin Owens is revealed as the replacement for Jinder Mahal in the main event due to Roman Reigns injuring Jinder. So far, it is known that there will be at least two MITB ladder matches (men and women) with eight superstars in each - four from Monday Night Raw and four from SmackDown Live. Elias performed before the match. After the match, Elias joins Owens and Sami for a beatdown on Lashley until Seth Rollins makes the save.
