“Then. Now. Forever. Together.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

Video: Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, and Ilja Dragunov are shown entering the arena earlier today. They’ll compete in tonight’s main event in a Money in the Bank Triple Threat Qualifying Match.

Arena Concourse

“Main Event” Jey Uso is shown in the arena’s concourse area, walking through the fans going wild. Uso is fired up. He looks into the camera and tells the production team to hit his music.

The camera follows Uso into the arena, where he makes an epic entrance. Uso goes through the crowd and hops over the barricade. Uso slaps hands with Michael Cole, who is excited. Cole is joined by Corey Graves tonight. Pat McAfee is off following the death of his father-in-law.

Five slots have been filled in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: LA Knight, Chad Gable, Carmelo Hayes, Andrade, and Jey Uso. The final spot will be filled in tonight’s main event with Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, and Ilja Dragunov.

The crowd chants, “YEET” at Uso. Uso says, “Welcome to Monday Night Raw!” Money in the Bank is on Saturday. Only one person is going to snatch that contract. Not Carmelo. Not Andrade. Not LA Knight. Not Chad Gable. You’re looking at the new Mr. Money in the Bank, and his name is “Main Event” Jey Uso (YEET).

Chad Gable’s music hits, and he comes out to the stage in a suit. Gable has heard enough of the word “YEET.” The crowd chants it anyway. Gable says, “For your information, you Boston idiots, YEET isn’t even a word!” What is a word is “miracle.” If you look it up in the dictionary, you’ll find his picture. What he’s done in the last two weeks is nothing short of miraculous. He overcame an attack by the Wyatts, his family leaving him (he’s cut off by a “You Suck” chant), and he overcame two monsters last week to punch his ticket to Money in the Bank. Gable will pull off another miracle by climbing the ladder and taking that briefcase to become “Master in the Bank.”

Gable gets in the ring, and Uso asks what Gable is doing. Did the Wyatts get him already? Gable says he’s not scared of them, but his body language says something different. Gable says Uso stole the fireflies. Gable is an innocent man. They should be after Jey Uso, the man who abandoned his family. Uso says he didn’t steal the fireflies. The only thing Gable’s family did is what he did, which is get out from under a manipulative scumbag like Gable. Gable viciously attacks Uso with some right hands. Uso fights back with some big right hands, does a quick gyration, and rocks him with another right hand. Uso superkicks him down and heads to the top rope, but Gable rolls away before anything else happens.

Gable says he’s not stupid and won’t just lay there to be splashed. All of a sudden, the lights ominously go out. The lone, slightly out-of-tune C#/Db piano key hits and the ring fills with smoke. Jey Uso is gone. The crowd chants, “Holy s**t,” which is annoying bleeped out each time. Gable retreats through the crowd, but he turns to see a figure standing in a bright light. We can’t see who it is. Gable backs away and worriedly looks around. On the stage is the man in the bunny mask. Gable keeps walking away and sees another figure standing in a light. Gable jumps into the crowd and backs up the steps to the concourse.

At ringside, the security officers are again laid out on the commentary table. The Sister Abigail figure walks up to the commentary table and puts another package in front of Michael Cole, much like she did last week.

-Commercial Break-

Michael Cole pulls another VHS tape out of the box, which the mysterious woman from the Wyatt Sicks delivered to him.

Later tonight, Liv Morgan will defend her Women’s World Championship against Zelina Vega. Zoey Stark, Dakota Kai, and Ivy Nile will compete in a Money in the Bank Triple Threat Qualifying Match. Finally, in a rematch from WrestleMania 39, Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio will battle.

We will also look at the vicious attack the New Bloodline carried out on Paul Heyman.

Xavier Woods w/ Kofi Kingston vs. Karrion Kross w/ The Final Testament (The Authors of Pain (Akam and Rezar), Scarlett, and Paul Ellering)

Replay: Last Monday on Raw, The Final Testament viciously attacked Xavier Woods backstage, causing Karrion Kross to use the distraction to beat Kofi Kingston.

The bell rings, and Karrion Kross walks to the center of the ring and extends his hand to Xavier Woods. Woods refuses to shake his hand and chops the chest. Kross reverses a whip to the opposite corner. Kross hits a corner clothesline, a back elbow, and a stiff forearm. Kross connects with an exploder suplex and saunters around the ring. Kross stomps away at Woods, but Woods pops up and throws some desperation punches. Kross cuts him off and chokes him on the middle rope. Kofi Kingston cheers on his partner from ringside. Woods shoves Kross off and pulls the top rope down to get him out of the ring. Woods connects with a plancha and is fired up. Woods pulls Kross up to his feet and chops the chest. Kross reverses a whip into the ring post, but Woods puts the brakes on. Kross quickly cuts Woods off and hits a powerbomb into the ring post! As he puts him down, Kross nearly spikes him on his head at ringside.

-Commercial Break-

We return from the break to see Woods trapped in an overhead wristlock. Woods fights up, and they begin exchanging strikes in the center of the ring. Woods comes out on top by chopping away at Kross. Kross reverses a whip, but Woods ducks two attacks, slides through the legs, and hits a running forearm. Woods hits a running forearm in the corner and starts up the ten punches. Kross shoves him off at six, so Woods superkicks him. Kross twists out of a move and hits a head-butt. Woods rolls to the apron to recover. Woods pushes Kross off and kicks him in the head. Woods heads to the top rope as Paul Ellering shouts at him. Woods leaps, but Kross forearms him in the face out of midair.

Kross stands over Woods and talks a little trash. Kross pulls Woods up, and Woods surprises him with an inside cradle for the upset win!

Winner by Pinfall: Xavier Woods

Woods and Kingston celebrate in the ring until the Authors of Pain attack them from behind. Akam sends Woods out of the ring. Rezar pulls Kingston up and throws him. Rezar charges, but Kingston pulls the top rope down to get him out of the ring. Kingston hits the ropes for a dive, but Kross cuts him off with a Kross Hammer! At ringside, AOP slams Woods into the barricade. In the ring, Kross injures Kingston by applying an overhead wristlock. Scarlett and Paul Ellering watch on, seemingly pleased. The Final Testament stands tall in the ring.

Woods checks on Kingston, who is holding his shoulder in pain. Kross sits beside Kingston, writhing in pain, and stares at Woods.

Replay: Last Monday on Raw, Liv Morgan distracted R-Truth with a hug before snapping him off the top rope. This led to Finn Bálor hitting R-Truth with a Woo Dropkick and a Coup de Grâce to win the World Tag Team Championship with JD McDonagh. Morgan celebrated with Bálor and McDonagh after the win.

Backstage Segment

World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest is walking backstage with “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio. Priest says tonight is a big night, and hopefully, Mysterio will be done with his dad once and for all. Priest asks if Mysterio talked to Rhea Ripley. Mysterio says he did, and she’s good. Priest says Ripley’s not great because he just spoke to her. Priest says Ripley is pissed. Mysterio says he’s going to handle this Liv Morgan situation. Priest says Mysterio says that every week, but nothing has happened. Mysterio says this Morgan thing isn’t even his fault. Mysterio says something under his breath.

They walk into the Judgment Day Clubhouse. Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan is hanging out with World Tag Team Champions Finn Bálor and JD McDonagh. Carlito is there. Morgan says her title match is next, but she wants to wish “Daddy Dom” luck. She walks off.

Priest tells Bálor having Morgan in the clubhouse isn’t cool. That has to stop. Bálor says whatever he thinks about Morgan, she helped bring the Tag Team Titles back to Judgment Day. The real issue is Priest. Priest put his spot in the Judgment Day in jeopardy. They didn’t like what Priest said to Seth Rollins, saying that Judgment Day needs him more than he needs them. Priest says they’re not his sidekicks, but he didn’t say anything wrong. He’s the World Champion. Of course, they need him more. When Rhea Ripley was the Women’s World Champion, they needed her more. Now, Bálor is the champion. They need each other. As far as his spot being on the line, Priest has faith in himself. He knows he can beat Rollins and will do that. Bálor says he knows Priest will. As his brother, he’ll always have Priest’s back. As his brother, he’ll also tell him the truth. Since Priest won the title, he’s changed. Bálor walks off as Priest scoffs.

Zelina Vega makes her entrance. She’ll challenge Liv Morgan for the Women’s World Championship next.

-Commercial Break-

Replay: Earlier tonight, Chad Gable retreated from the Wyatt Sicks group. The mysterious woman then delivered another package containing a VHS tape to Michael Cole.

Women’s World Championship
Zelina Vega vs. Liv Morgan (c)

Liv Morgan is wearing a shirt similar to Rhea Ripley’s “Mami’s always on top” shirt. It says, “Liv’s finally on top.” Samantha Irvin does the in-ring introductions before this title match begins.

The bell rings, and Morgan quickly takes her down before laughing. Vega comes back with a pair of arm drags. Vega springboards off the ropes and hits another arm drag. Morgan quickly shoves her into the corner and laughs some more. Morgan pulls on the hair and stretches her on the ropes. Morgan releases before the referee counts to five, which would necessitate a disqualification. Morgan attacks Vega on the top rope and sets up for a superplex, but Vega fights out. Vega hits a 619 to the legs to knock Morgan down to the canvas. Vega knocks Morgan back and goes to the apron, but Morgan dropkicks her to the floor.

“Dirty” Dominik Mysterio walks to ringside to loud boos. Morgan is happy to see him. Morgan goes to ringside, but Vega hits her with an arm drag, followed by a meteora off the apron. WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio comes to ringside to ensure his son doesn’t interfere.

-Commercial Break-

Back from the break, we see Vega punching Morgan. Morgan cuts her off with a knee to the midsection. “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio is watching closely from ringside. On the other side of the ring is his father and rival, Rey Mysterio. Morgan hits Dominik’s Three Amigos and shakes. Dominik scratches his chin and looks amused. Morgan then applies Rhea Ripley’s Prism Trap to Vega. Vega is in great pain and rolls through to send Morgan into the turnbuckles. Vega rolls her and hits a spin kick to the face. Vega gets Morgan in the corner and kicks her in the face. Vega hits a stomp to the spine before pulling her up. Vega kicks her down and positions her in the corner. Vega goes to the top rope and hits a big moonsault for a near fall.

Rey Mysterio shouts some encouragement from ringside. Vega kicks Morgan in the face and goes for Code Red, but Morgan sits on the shoulders for a two-count. Vega rolls through for a two-count. Morgan hits a running enzuigiri and covers for a near fall. Morgan looks frustrated, but she begins to smile and blows a kiss to Dominik. Dominik appears to smirk. Morgan puts Vega on the top rope. A “Shave Your Mustache” chant picks up, directed toward Dominik. Vega fights Morgan off and bounces her on the top turnbuckle. Vega hits Code Red off the top rope, but Morgan rolls out of the ring before she gets pinned.

Vega goes to ringside to get her, but Morgan shoves her off. Morgan puts Vega in the ring. Rey approaches his son and shoves him down. Morgan hits Rey with a baseball slide and taunts him. Vega stuns Morgan with a 619 and follows up with a huge satellite DDT! 1… 2… Morgan kicks out! Vega covers again for a two-count. Dominik slides a chair into the ring to Vega, but Vega throws the chair into Dominik’s face to knock him off the ring apron. Morgan, irate that Dominik has been attacked, hits Vega with the Ob-Liv-ion for the win.

Winner by Pinfall and still Women’s World Champion: Liv Morgan

Morgan follows Dominik at ringside, but he is trying to ignore her. Cathy Kelley walks out to the stage and stops Morgan. She asks Morgan if she feels like everything is going according to plan on her Revenge Tour. Morgan says she feels like the luckiest girl in the world. The Liv Morgan Revenge Tour is going exactly how she planned. Morgan dedicates her victory and all future victories to the most gorgeous man in WWE, her Daddy Dominik. Morgan holds up the title.

Modelo, The Mark of a Fighter: Drew McIntyre is complaining about going to the back of the line after being screwed by CM Punk. McIntyre is at peace. If anyone gets in between him and his goal, he’ll do to them what he did to Punk. It starts tonight with Sheamus and Ilja Dragunov. McIntyre will win. Then he’ll go to Money in the Bank on Saturday. There are a lot of guys with hopes and dreams, but McIntyre has dreams. On Saturday, he’ll climb the ladder and claim the contract. It will be his night. McIntyre will be the World Heavyweight Champion. Ask the last guy who stopped him… oh wait, you can’t. McIntyre holds up his fist with CM Punk’s bracelet around his wrist.

Backstage Segment

Seth “Freakin” Rollins is walking backstage. We’ll hear from him next.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins addresses his title match ahead of Saturday’s Money in the Bank


Seth “Freakin” Rollins makes his way to the ring to a big ovation. Rollins greets Boston and welcomes them to “Monday Night Rollins.” He is a revolutionary. He is a visionary. He is Seth “Freakin” Rollins. Rollins cackles and points out that there is some confetti dropping from the rafters. Rollins thinks it’s a sign that he’ll be standing here as the World Heavyweight Champion next week. Rollins wants to be real with Boston because he thinks they’ll understand where this is coming from. Rollins has a secret for them. This is a championship city. They’ve got the Bruins, the Sox, and the Pats. Judging by the remaining confetti, they have the 2024 NBA Champion Boston Celtics! The crowd loudly cheers and chants, “Let’s go Celtics!”

Rollins says that is well deserved after an incredible season. Rollins says he needs to win back the World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins cannot settle for second best. Rollins cannot settle for anything less than a championship. If he doesn’t beat Damian Priest at Money in the Bank, he can’t take another crack at the title while Priest holds it. Then he’ll need to reevaluate who Seth “Freakin” Rollins is and his legacy. Still, he is at his very best when the pressure is highest. This Saturday at Money in the Bank, when he takes back the title that Damian Priest has been keeping warm for him since WrestleMania, he’ll also take Priest from the Judgment Day. It’s not Rollins’ intention to break up the Judgment Day. Without the Judgment Day, Damian Priest has an opportunity to be the best version…

World Tag Team Champion Finn Bálor of the Judgment Day walks out to the stage by himself. Bálor tells Boston to say hello to one-half of the World Tag Team Champions. Bálor should be in a good mood tonight, but he’s not. Bálor is in a bad mood. In fact, he’s in a real bad mood. The reason is because everything around here seems to be changing. What it means to be in the Judgment Day is changing. Damian Priest is changing. Bálor blames Rollins. Rollins tells Bálor to shut up. Priest is his own man and making his own decisions. Rollins doesn’t think Bálor is mad at Priest for changing. Bálor is jealous of Priest for getting the one thing Bálor couldn’t: the World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins says his beef is with Priest, but if he wants to step up, he’ll knock his teeth down his throat.

World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest charges down to ringside. Rollins says this is a Judgment Day trap. They have one more week to be on the same side. Rollins tells them to make it worth it. Priest tells Rollins to stop being paranoid because this isn’t a trap. Priest and Bálor get in the ring. Priest walks up to Bálor and says this is his business. Nobody else is getting involved in his business. Priest stares Bálor dead in the eyes. Bálor steps aside. Priest says this is about him and Rollins and just them. Rollins is telling the world that his days as champion are numbered, but he’s wrong. This idea that Rollins has that he runs Monday Night Raw… those days are numbered. Rollins says they don’t have to wait until Saturday to get this fight on.

Rollins sets up for a fight. Bálor turns Rollins around, but Rollins gets the better of him. Priest hasn’t swung at Rollins. Rollins looks at Priest. Bálor attacks Rollins from behind and punches away at him until Priest pulls him off. Rollins gets up and superkicks Priest into Bálor. Rollins kicks Bálor in the midsection and hits a Stomp. Rollins is fired up. Priest gets up and drops Rollins with a vicious South of Heaven. Priest checks on Bálor and helps him up. They walk together to the back.

WWE promotes its partnership with Bojangles and the commemorative cups.

Michael Cole mentions that Ludwig Kaiser was injured last week on Raw during his match against Bron Breakker.

Video: Ludwig Kaiser says after weeks of hard-fought battles and proving what he’s capable of, including nearly beating Bron Breakker, Sheamus viciously attacked him from behind. Sheamus wound up breaking Kaiser’s ribs. After many years of accomplishments and people looking up to him, Sheamus finally showed his true colors. Sheamus is nothing but a coward. Before, it was about beating Sheamus and making him a chapter of the story of the rise of Kaiser. Now, it’s more than that. Kaiser will make it his goal to beat, embarrass, and humiliate Sheamus. He will end the Celtic Warrior once and for all.

Dakota Kai makes her entrance. The Money in the Bank Triple Threat Qualifying Match is next.

Backstage Segment

World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest is helping World Tag Team Champion Finn Bálor walk backstage. Priest asks Bálor, who is wobbly from a Stomp delivered by Seth “Freakin” Rollins, if he is ok. Bálor confirms that he is. Priest says he’s glad that Bálor is ok, but he needs him to stay out of the match at Money in the Bank. Bálor simply says, “Yep.” Priest looks for a fist bump, but Bálor declines. Priest walks off.

Video: A distraught Bo Dallas is shown sitting with Uncle Howdy, his alter-ego. Dallas asks how much longer they’ll keep doing this. Uncle Howdy just stares at him. Dallas asks Uncle Howdy what he’s doing here. Uncle Howdy asks, “Do you honestly believe you brought me to life?” Dallas contemplates the question and says he was destined to do this. Uncle Howdy asks if Dallas thinks he’s special. Dallas says special implies that there are others who are less than and deserve to be forgotten. Dallas says they’re the ones everyone wanted to forget about and abandoned. Dalas says they made them notice them. Uncle Howdy says, “There you are.” Dallas says they are clay in the hands of a potter. They’ve become a family. Dallas says, “We’ve become a family.” Uncle Howdy sinisterly smiles. Dallas says, “Even now, there are false prophets berating their own family for their own gain. It’s disgusting. They must pay for their sins.” Uncle Howdy asks if Dallas thinks this is his responsibility. Dallas says, “I am the voice of the reckoning.” Uncle Howdy says, “I am the reckoning.” Together, they say, “I am nobody.” They set them free and freed them from the cave. They gave them a family and made them beautiful. Uncle Howdy disappears, and Bo Dallas is sitting alone. Dallas says, “I set them free.” Uncle Howdy appears, and Dallas disappears. Uncle Howdy says, “There you are.” The video cuts out.

Coming up next, we’ll have a WrestleMania 39 rematch with Rey Mysterio battling “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio.

Chad Gable walks up to Otis, who is eating a big meal. Gable asks if Otis saw the new Wyatt video. Gable thinks they were talking about him. Gable has been critical of Otis and his choices. The things he said were hurtful. He knows Otis hates him. Otis says, “I don’t… I don’t hate you. We’re not helping you. This is not our problem. This is yours.” Gable says they’re after him right now, but who could be next? It could be Akira Tozawa, Maxxine Dupri, or Otis himself. If that happens, he’ll be right with him because Otis is his #1 Guy. Maxxine and Tozawa walk up to Otis and ask if he’s ok. Otis says he is.

Rey Mysterio vs. “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio

The last time these two competed in a one-on-one match was on Night One of WrestleMania 39. WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio came out on top in that match.

The bell rings, and they lock up. Rey flips through an arm wrench. Dominik reverses a whip and dropkicks his father down before metaphorically kicking dirt on him. Dominik taunts the crowd before circling the ring. They lock up, and Rey hooks a side headlock. Dominik whips his father off and leapfrogs him, but Rey stomps his face when he drops down.

Since then, he’s competed against legends, traveled the world, and made a living beating people up. Tonight, he gets a chance to try to be a two-time Money in the Bank winner. Sheamus says this will be a war against Ilja Dragunov and Drew McIntyre, two of the hardest-hitting people in WWE. Ilja Dragunov reminds him of himself 15 years ago. As for Drew McIntyre, his so-called best mate constantly sticking his nose in his business, who needs enemies? Sheamus has been here for 15 years and still puts on banger after banger. He’ll take one step closer to being a 5-time World Champion tonight. Sheamus is going to win Money in the Bank.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn makes his entrance. We’ll hear from him next.

-Commercial Break-

Shinsuke Nakamura was in the corner of Rei Tsurya on Saturday. Tsurya got the win.

Sami Zayn addresses his Intercontinental Championship match against Bron Breakker on Saturday

WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn is standing on the ring steps. Zayn is happy with his reception and listens to a loud “Sami” chant. Zayn says he feels pretty good tonight. It feels good to walk back into this arena as the Intercontinental Champion. Zayn gets in the ring and circles around. When he won the Intercontinental Championship, he said he wanted to defend it to anyone at any time. His next match is set for Saturday at Money in the Bank. He’ll defend the title against Bron Breakker. Zayn isn’t stupid. He hears the buzz and the chatter. Everyone seems to think that Breakker will run through him. The guy is an athletic freak. He’s strong as hell and fast as hell. Breakker is breaking guys in half every week on Raw. Zayn wants to say this so he’s not misunderstood: “I am going to beat Bron Breakker at Money in the Bank.” Zayn says he takes nothing away from him…

Bron Breakker’s music hits, and he confidently approaches the ring. The crowd barks as Breakker steps up to Zayn. Breakker says Zayn gained a little of his respect last week. Everyone else back there is afraid of him, but not Zayn. Zayn came to find him and challenged him to a fight. Zayn gave him an opportunity at the Intercontinental Championship. That tells Breakker two things: Zayn has guts and has no idea what he’s in for. On Saturday at Money in the Bank, all that respect is out the window. Breakker will beat him down and decimate him in the ring to become the new Intercontinental Champion.

Zayn asks if Breakker knows how many guys have said they’ll beat him down and break him in half. Many guys have done that and beaten him down. It’s happened a thousand times, and he has put himself back together a thousand times. That’s the difference between him and the guys Breakker runs through every week. Zayn says the proof is in the title. Zayn wants Breakker to try his best to take this title from him. If Zayn has to stand in this ring and tell Breakker about who he is, it tells Zayn that Breakker hasn’t done his homework. Maybe Breakker isn’t as smart as he thinks he is. Maybe Breakker isn’t as good as he thinks he is. Zayn says he’ll see him at Money in the Bank. Breakker intensely looks the champion in the eyes. Breakker turns around and goes to leave the ring, but then he explosively turns around and hits the champion with a Spear! Zayn squirms around in pain on the mat as Breakker walks off.

Zayn rolls out of the ring by the commentary table. Breakker sees an opportunity and charges around the ring for a Spear, but Zayn leapfrogs him! Breakker hits the ring steps hard! Zayn punches away at Breakker and puts him in the ring before hitting an exploder suplex into the turnbuckles. Zayn hits the ropes for a Helluva Kick, but Breakker crushes him with a Spear! Breakker rips his shirt off and is fired up. Breakker stands over Zayn and holds the Intercontinental Championship up. Breakker then throws it down onto Zayn.

Coming up next, we’ll take a look at The Bloodline destroying Paul Heyman.

Backstage Interview

Cathy Kelley asks Dakota Kai if her failure to win impacts IYO SKY’s chances on Saturday. Kai says the plan remains the same. Kai is tired of people getting in Damage CTRL’s business. Lyra Valkyria walks up and tells IYO SKY that she’ll climb the ladder faster than she does. Kayden Carter and Katana Chance then attack Damage CTRL. Raw General Manager Adam Pearce runs over with other officials to break this up.

Video: This past Friday on SmackDown, Paul Heyman refused to acknowledge Solo Sikoa as his Tribal Chief. The Bloodline viciously attacked the WWE Hall of Famer and powerbombed the 58-year-old manager through the commentary table.

The Money in the Bank Kickoff Show is on Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern/2 p.m. Pacific. They then run down the card for Money in the Bank.

Video: Ilja Dragunov says winning Money in the Bank takes you from the bottom to the top. Dragunov knows what it’s like to fight from the bottom and get to the top. A career can be short when animals like Bron Breakker are trying to end you. This is the story of a different day. Dragunov will fight Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. Dragunov will go to Toronto on Saturday to win Money in the Bank or die trying.

Drew McIntyre makes his entrance. The main event is next.
