So, it came as no surprise that fans instantly knew the game WWE was playing when they made a decision to ignite a feud between Reigns and Jinder Mahal, following the latter's move over from SmackDown LIVE to Monday Night RAW as part of the Superstar Shake-up.
Whether it is Roman Reigns' backstage assault or Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens rumbling outside the ring, you will find the best bits here. Angle makes Jinder vs. Elias vs. Bobby Lashley in a Money In the Bank qualifying match for later. Only Moon and Charlotte Flair (SmackDown Live) have qualified as of now, but more participants can be expected in the Women's MITB ladder match after Raw in London.
Men's Money In the Bank Ladder Match: Braun Strowman vs. Finn Bálor vs.
- Roman Reigns continues to believe that he is the Universal champion without a crown and for that reason he wants a new chance.
WWE Cruiserweight Championship - Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Buddy Murphy: Since the cruiserweight title was left off the Backlash card, we're going to go ahead and say it gets some sort of exposure at Money in the Bank, be it on the main show or the kickoff.
Jinder Mahal wanted a qualifying match for MITB, but his request was denied by Kurt Angle, and the "Modern-Day Maharaja" vowed revenge. With rumors Jordan returning to action soon, the storyline son of general manager Kurt Angle and Rollins' former tag team partner makes the most sense in this spot. Roode says the WWE Title is why he's here, why they're all here. They lost the crowd here, worst than during the six-woman match. Sami shows the video interview with Lashley and Renee Young from last week but fans were booing and chanting "boring" before it was over.
Looks like it's going to snow in the Sahara, because the most unthinkable has happened: Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas have won a match.
Reigns says that last week he was robbed, and this time it was not by WWE management, but instead by Jinder Mahal.
- Kevin Owens is revealed as the replacement for Jinder Mahal in the main event due to Roman Reigns injuring Jinder. Sami Zayn ran down at one point and stopped Lashley from getting the win. Owens, inside the ring, then delivered a top-rope Frog Splash to Elias for the three count. Roman Reigns then ran out to even the odds and help Rollins with the save.
