We go live into the arena. The Judgment Day will welcome a new
member later tonight. We’ll also see Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley,
Doudrop, and Alexa Bliss will also battle in a Fatal 4-Way to
determine Bianca Belair’s next challenger. The Street Profits will

Cody Rhodes makes his way to the ring to a huge ovation. Rhodes can
barely move his right arm but is all smiles as he makes his way to
the ring. Rhodes says, “Welcome to Monday Night Raw!” A “Thank you,
Cody” chant picks up. Rhodes says those chants fill his heart, as
well as the comments on social media. They have reverence for what
he did, but he doesn’t believe in that. Simply put, it’s a privilege
to do what he does.
Rhodes admits that tearing his pectoral tendon off the bone is
demoralizing, but he doesn’t want to be sad or downtrodden. They’ve
talked about the Rhodes’ before, but there’s one they haven’t met
yet: his daughter. Rhodes is getting choked up. When she’s old
enough, he wants her to watch what happened last night. He wants her
to know that in the darkest time of his life in a literal hell, he
was not down or jaded. He stood and fought. A “Cody” chant picks up.
Rhodes fought against one of the very best WWE Superstars of
all-time, Seth “Freakin” Rollins. The chapter and trilogy have been
written and are closed. Rhodes is officially done with Seth Rollins.
Rhodes wants to talk about what’s above him. The camera shows two
Money in the Bank contracts hanging above the ring. That Money in
the Bank contract has eluded him throughout his career. Rhodes is
banged up right now, but in four weeks’ time, if he was somehow able
to climb up and grab the contract, he could become the WWE
Undisputed Universal Champion. A loud “Cody” chant fires up.
Seth “Freakin” Rollins’ music hits, and the Visionary makes his way
to the ring in one of his outlandish suits. Rollins is limping and
not smiling like he normally does. Rollins says he still doesn’t
like Rhodes, but after what he put himself through last night he has
earned his respect. It could be one of the gutsiest performances in
this industry’s history. Rollins says Rhodes is one of the toughest
people he’s ever been in the ring with. Rollins knows he’s the last
person Rhodes wants to hear from, but Dusty is very proud of his
baby boy right now. Rhodes is trying to hold back all of his
emotion, as the crowd chants, “Cody.” Rollins says Rhodes showed him
respect the night after WrestleMania. Rollins is here to return the
favor. Rollins extends his left hand, and Cody shakes it with his
good arm. Rollins then limps off.
Cody Rhodes claps for the fans and poses one last time. The
commentators talk about the injury and how Rhodes left himself open
to still come out for Money in the Bank. Rhodes goes up the ramp…
and all of a sudden, Rollins attacks him from behind with a
sledgehammer! Rollins rips off Rhodes’ suit and stomps the torn pec.
Rollins digs the sledgehammer into the injury before WWE officials
pull him off. The crowd is livid.
John Cena will return to Monday Night Raw on June 24 from Laredo,
Texas! Cena will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of his debut.

puts over his wife, Maryse, before talking about the Money in the
Bank contract. The winner has an 85% chance of winning the title.
Miz should know – he’s done it twice. Miz also talks about the
double-episode season premiere of Miz and Mrs later tonight.
Maryse says she’s very excited about the premiere of their show.
When she told her glam team that she was coming to Green Bay, they
didn’t even know where it was. You’d think this is such a big show,
they’d be where people know about. Miz gets angry that the crowd was
Riddle interrupts them. Riddle speaks horrible French to Maryse. She
responds in proper French, and Riddle says, “Gesundheit.” Riddle
then gives a shoutout to his best bro Randy Orton. Riddle says he
hopes Orton comes back soon, unlike his stepdad. Miz says Orton’s
career is over. Riddle tells Miz to shut up. Riddle says he wants to
fight that Tribal piece of trash Roman Reigns and take his titles.
Riddle says there’s a reason why he’s playing peacemaker and Miz’s
wife pulls him around by his tiny balls. The crowd chants, “Tiny
balls.” Maryse says her husband has average balls. Miz is not happy,
so she says they’re above average – no, they’re gigantic. Riddle
says to prove it. Maryse says her husband will prove it by fighting
Riddle. Riddle is excited, but Miz declines. All of a sudden, Ciampa
attacks Riddle from behind. Miz then changes his mind and says he’ll
fight Riddle. Miz is still wearing his tuxedo.
The Miz w/ Maryse vs. Riddle
We join this match in progress. Miz is competing in a tuxedo. Riddle
makes a comeback and hits a Randy Orton snap powerslam. Riddle then
connects with a draping DDT. Riddle drops down and stalks Miz. Miz
avoids an RKO and gets out of the ring. Maryse pulls Miz out of the
way of a kick from the apron. Miz runs away, but Riddle catches him
and rips his pants off. Miz is slipping and falling in his
underwear. A “Tiny Balls” chant picks up. Miz grabs Maryse’s loaded
purse and swings, but Riddle ducks it. Riddle hits an RKO for the
Winner by Pinfall: Riddle

perpetrated on Cody Rhodes at the start of the show.
Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring. We’ll hear from him next.
Bobby Lashley is in the ring, and the crowd is chanting his name.
Lashley says it didn’t need to end this way with MVP. For a long
time, he considered MVP to be his family. At Hell in a Cell, they
had every advantage against him, but he overcame it. You never say
anything when your enemies make a mistake. The biggest mistake MVP
made was stabbing him in the back. It felt damn good to put MVP in
the Hurt Lock. Now that he has MVP and Omos in his rearview mirror,
Lashley was thinking about what is next.
WWE United States Champion Theory comes out. Theory doesn’t know
what authority allowed Lashley to come out and steal his spotlight,
but this is his time. Theory deserves the spotlight, not Lashley.
Lashley is only out here because someone helped him win his match.
Theory is out here because he won his match all by himself. Theory
gets in the ring and tells Lashley to get out of “his ring.” Theory
says he wants a selfie first. Lashley says this ring belongs to him
and they can settle this like gentlemen. Theory says they can have a
match, but first, he can check out his bicep. Theory poses, so
Lashley flexes his enormous bicep. Lashley says if Theory is so
confident he can beat him, he can put the United States Title on the
line. Theory says Lashley doesn’t deserve a title match. Sure, he’s
beaten Brock Lesnar, Drew McIntyre, and Randy Orton, but he hasn’t
beaten Mr. McMahon’s protege, the youngest United States Champion in
WWE history. Theory goes to take a selfie, so Lashley boots him out
of the ring. Lashley tells him to take a walk.

to his greatness last night… Finn Bálor.

matches of his young career. Ezekiel wants a rematch against Kevin

rematch next week, but first Ezekiel has to admit that he’s Elias.
