Raw is War
Grand Rapids, Michigan
June 18, 2018
“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
A video kicks off the show highlighting the Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax match from last night’s WWE Money in the Bank event. Rousey just about had Jax in the arm bar, but Alexa Bliss attacked her to cause the disqualification. Bliss, who won the Money in the Bank contract earlier, attacked Rousey and Jax with the briefcase. Bliss then cashed in on Jax and won the RAW Women’s Championship.
Kurt Angle is in the ring, which is decorated with a red carpet. There’s also a table on which the Money in the Bank briefcase and the RAW Women’s Title are resting. Angle is proud that RAW won both Money in the Bank contracts. Angle introduces the woman who won Money in the Bank and cashed in her contract to win the RAW Women’s Championship, Alexa Bliss. Bliss comes out to some good heat from the crowd. Angle presents her with the RAW Women’s Championship, and she holds it up. Angle says Nia Jax is doing physical therapy, she has demanded her rematch clause against Bliss at Extreme Rules. Bliss is stunned he’s not letting her talk about last night. Bliss thanks everyone in the arena and watching at home for the opportunity… to rub it in all their faces. A “We want Ronda” chant picks up. Bliss says she showed Jax what a bully is, as well as Rousey, who is also a bully. She shocked the entire world when she successfully cashed in her Money in the Bank contract. There will be no more talk about the Irresistible Force or the Baddest Woman on the Planet. It’s all about her. The Goddess is all that matters.
Ronda Rousey’s music hits, and she comes out to a huge reaction. Rousey charges to the ring and removes her jacked. Rousey gets in the ring, but Angle steps in front of her and holds her back. Angle tries to talk some sense to her. A “Let them fight” chant picks up. Bliss says she thought Rousey would be doing physical therapy with Jax. Did she come out to show the bruises Bliss left all over her body? Bliss asks if she’s out here to learn a lesson. Rousey obviously doesn’t know the difference between UFC and WWE. What she did was 100% perfectly legal. It’s not all bad. Rousey looked like she was seconds away from making Jax tap. She was fingertips away… but they’ll never know now. Bliss says she knows why Rousey is out here. Rousey can’t stand that the headlines weren’t about her last night. All the major news outlets did stories on her because she’s the RAW Women’s Champion. As for Rousey, she’s irrelevant. Bliss says, “If you ever want a championship opportunity, you better get in the back of the line you overhyped rookie!”
Rousey sidesteps Angle and takes Bliss down before punching away at her. Angle pulls her off, so she takes him down with a judo toss. Rousey punches Bliss before she can hit her with the briefcase. Rousey then beats Bliss down with the briefcase. Angle tries to stop it, so she hits him a bunch of times with the briefcase in anger. Referees run down to help, so she beats them up as well. Rousey then scoops Bliss up and powerbombs her through the table! Rousey stands over her and talks trash. A huge “YES” chant picks up. Rousey then leaves the ring. Angle follows her, and he doesn’t look happy whatsoever. Rousey walks off on him and storms to the back.
Replays are shown of what just happened.
Backstage, Ronda Rousey is yelling at Kurt Angle. She says she doesn’t want to hear that WWE isn’t like UFC. Angle says she doesn’t get it. Angle apologizes and suspends her for thirty days. She may have cost herself a chance at ever being RAW Women’s Champion. Angle apologizes again. Rousey sarcastically says he sounds real sorry and walks off.
Replays are shown of the wild Ronda Rousey segment again.
Ronda Rousey is walking backstage with her bag. Renee Young wants a word about the suspension. Rousey says she should wish good luck to Alexa Bliss. After 30 days, she’s coming back to whip her pink-haired ass.
Seth Rollins’ music hits, and the WWE Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring. Rollins says it’s heating up out here tonight. There’s a nice energy out here and a buzz in the locker room. Rollins thinks they should keep it going. Elias took him to his limit at Money in the Bank, and he loved every second of it. Rollins is still standing and is still the Intercontinental Champion. A “Burn it down” chant picks up. Rollins says he’s a fighting champion and is here every Monday night. How about we have ourselves an Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge? There’s no better place than here and no better time than right now. Rollins asks who has the guts to take on the man.
Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre’s music hits to answer the open challenge. Ziggler and McIntyre look at each other before Ziggler motions that it is him that will answer the challenge.
The bell rings, and Ziggler quickly kicks him and goes for a Zig-Zag, but Rollins holds the ropes. Rollins goes for a Stomp, but Ziggler gets out of the ring to talk strategy with McIntyre.
We come back from the break to see Rollins put Ziggler in the ring and go for a springboard, but Ziggler dropkicks him to the floor. Ziggler punches Rollins and puts him in the ring.

Rollins soon fights up and connects with a jawbreaker. Rollins goes for a suplex, but Ziggler lands on his feet. Rollins quickly sweeps the feet and catapults him into the corner. Ziggler’s head snaps off the ring post. Rollins chops Ziggler’s chest and punches him a few times. Ziggler sends him into the ropes, but he lowers his head and eats a kick. Rollins hits a pair of clotheslines and a Sling Blade. Rollins then sends him to the floor, thinks for a moment, and hits Ziggler with a suicide dive. Rollins gets him in the ring and hits a springboard diving clothesline for a two count.
We come back from the break to see Ziggler splash Rollins in the corner and go for a neckbreaker, but Rollins counters into a backslide pin for a two count. Rollins tries for a turnbuckle powerbomb, but Ziggler counters into a roll-up for a near fall. Rollins comes back with a Ripcord Knee for a near fall. During the break, Rollins attempted a suplex, but the momentum of Ziggler pulled him over the top rope. They’re both down in the ring as McIntyre ominously watches on from ringside. Rollins starts to stomp his feet and kicks Ziggler in the midsection. Ziggler avoids a Stomp and hits a famouser for a near fall. Ziggler cannot believe he didn’t put him away.
Both men slowly get to their feet while the crowd chants, “This is awesome.” Rollins is clutching his knee while Ziggler is “tuning up the band” in the corner. Ziggler charges into a superkick, and Rollins kicks him in the face a second time for good measure to pick up a near fall. Rollins pulls himself up to the top rope and goes for a Frog Splash, but Ziggler rolls out of the way. Ziggler goes to the top rope, but Rollins cuts him off. Rollins tries for a superplex, but Ziggler knocks him off to the mat. Rollins quickly pops up and scales the ropes, but Ziggler head-butts him down.

Later tonight, we’ll hear from Mr. Monster in the Bank, Braun Strowman.
Renee Young is backstage with the new WWE Intercontinental Champion. Dolph Ziggler says Monday Night Rollins is cancelled. There is no reboot coming. This is their show now. Drew McIntyre says they told everyone that this is just the beginning. This is the first of many titles to come. Unlike former champions, they won’t let this make them SAWFT. Ziggler says so many guys have catchy phrases, but there’s a difference between them from the rest. When they say something, they mean it.
Hawkins’ losing streak is 0-203 right now. Hawkins kicks Roode in the taped up ribs from the huge Coup de Grace from Finn Balor last night. Hawkins covers for a two count. Roode quickly comes back with a spinebuster before doing the “GLORIOUS” taunt. Roode hits a Glorious DDT to put Hawkins at 0-204.
We’ll hear from Braun Strowman, next.
Video Package: Braun Strowman’s destructive night at Money in the Bank
Braun Strowman is introduced as Mr. Monster in the Bank. Strowman makes his way to the ring to a nice reception holding the Money in the Bank briefcase. Strowman stands in the ring, and the crowd chants, “Get these hands.” Strowman says he’s smashed tables, broken ladders, flipped an ambulance over with his bare hands, and won a giant trophy in Saudi Arabia by tossing men around like beanbags. Hell, he’s even played a cello. As great as all that was, this Money in the Bank win is the greatest. Strowman stepped in the ring with seven other superstars, and he stomped, smashed, and captured the contract. Now all Brock Lesnar has to do is show his face, and he will cash this contract in and become the new Universal Champion. The Beast is gonna get these hands.
Kevin Owens’ music hits, and Owens gingerly walks out to the stage. Owens’ right arm is heavily taped. Strowman says he’s surprised to see him out here after throwing him off a 20-foot ladder. Owens says he shouldn’t be out here because it hurts to breathe, let alone talk, but he has to talk to Strowman. Owens isn’t here to steal his spotlight or seek retribution because he can’t right now anyway. Owens wanted to be the first one from the locker room to be man enough to say congratulations. Strowman deserves it. A light, “You deserve it” chant picks up. Owens says he knew Strowman would win the contract. Strowman knows Owens knew he’d win. That’s why he wanted to talk all the opponents into attacking him, but no one would listen to him. Owens hopes Strowman listens to him. Since Strowman is Mr. Monster in the Bank, he needs to have a strategy. That’s where Owens comes in. They have more in common than people think. Owens is no monster. Like Strowman, he’s goodhearted. Who is watching their back? Strowman hasn’t needed anyone to watch his back so far, but his life changed when he won the contract. Owens gets in the ring and groans. At WrestleMania, when Strowman needed a partner, he went into the crowd to get a 10-year old kid. Owens’ best friend Sami Zayn was injured last night, so they’re both in this ring alone, in need of a friend. Strowman looks confused. Owens says maybe “friend” is too strong of a word, but maybe they can help or use each other. Owens knows how prestigious it is to be the Universal Champion. Maybe after they use each other and Strowman successfully cashes in the contract, Owens can get a match for the Universal Title. They can start tonight: monster and man. Owens doesn’t want to get these hands. He’s too hurt. All he wants right now is to shake Strowman’s hand.
Owens extends his hand, and Strowman thinks for a moment before shaking. Owens turns to walk away, but Strowman doesn’t release. Strowman pulls Owens in closer before trying for a Running Powerslam, but Owens slides off and escapes the ring. Owens runs up the ramp limping and holding his ribs.

Bayley is in her locker room with Sasha Banks. Bayley says she was rooting for Banks and is sorry she lost. Bayley tells her to stop thinking about her loss. Bank says she just wants to be the best. Bayley says it won’t help to sit and sulk. Banks says she doesn’t get it. Bayley gets it. Last week, she was humiliated by The Riott Squad, which was demoralizing, but she’s ready to take them on with Banks. Bayley says she wouldn’t want a better partner. This could be a new start for the two of them since they haven’t been on the same page. They shake hands.
Sasha Banks and Bayley will take on The Riott Squad later.

We come back from the break to see Kurt Angle still talking on the phone to Stephanie McMahon. Angle says what she told him was big news and will make an announcement later tonight. Angle promises to run everything by Constable Corbin, who is laughing.
Before the match, Jinder Mahal says human beings must be open to change. Last night, he felt the winds of change. Although Roman Reigns may have won the match, he won the battle of self-improvement. Just like the crowd, Roman Reigns is bitter and angry. Mahal has found tranquility. As a spiritual being, he stays committed to change, unlike Chad Gable. Mahal says Gable is living his former glory as an amateur wrestler. Mahal tells him to forget the past and the darkness.
The bell rings, and Mahal immediately attacks Gable. Mahal beats him to the corner, but Gable quickly takes him down. Gable slams him down, but Mahal knees him before hitting a swinging neckbreaker.

Kurt Angle is standing in the ring wondering how to get the show under control. Angle announces that WWE officials have determined when Brock Lesnar will next defend his WWE Universal Championship. Angle is about to announce who it could be…
…but Roman Reigns interrupts. Reigns gets in the ring and says the answer as to who will face Brock Lesnar is standing in front of Angle. Reigns says he beat Lesnar at the Greatest Royal Rumble. Everyone knows it. That means he’s the uncrowned Universal Champion. Angle seems to be having a few problems running RAW, so having a full time champion that defends every Monday night would help him out. Angle appreciates Reigns’ confidence.
Bobby Lashley comes out to absolutely no reaction. Lashley says even before he came to WWE, he watched Reigns bang his head against the wall trying to beat Roman, er, Brock Lesnar. Lashley has been trying to get his hands on Lesnar since Reigns “was a little pup.” Lashley says he can beat Lesnar, and he can beat Reigns. Angle says they’re both deserving of facing Lesnar, but so are others. The one who faces Brock Lesnar next is the one who wins the multi-person match at Extreme Rules. Angle will announce the rest of the competitors later, but Reigns and Lashley are in it.
The Revival come out to no reaction and talk about busting their backs to get one opportunity on RAW. These so-called top guys are always standing in their way, but that changes tonight. The Revival challenges Reigns and Lashley to a match right here and now. Two of the best superstars against the best tag team. They’re using them as stepping stones.

Elias is in the ring strumming his guitar with wild looking hair. Elias greets the crowd and sings that there’s no one in the world like him. When times get hard, ask yourself what would Elias do? Seth Rollins had to cheat at Money in the Bank because he knows Elias had him beat. Rollins got what he deserved by losing his title because there’s no one in the world like Elias. Elias sings about how he heard that Lesnar is looking for a fight, so Extreme Rules should be his night. Elias has nothing to fear of The Beast because Elias will be walking. The Beast’s soul is vapid, like the trash in Grand Rapids.
