Welcome to our coverage of Monday Night Raw for the last time in May!
Tonight’s show features the return of the gauntlet match! Normally, gauntlet matches meant little to nothing, however a few months ago, a gauntlet match stole the show – almost literally as it ran for over an hour – and featured a career highlight for Seth Rollins. Tonight WWE aims to repeat that with the ladies, with the winner getting the final spot in the Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match. Tonight’s match includes Sasha Banks, Bayley, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Mickie James and Dana Brooke.
Speaking of Seth Rollins, The Kingslayer will put his Intercontinental Championship on the line against the Modern Day Maharajah, Jinder Mahal! For some unknown reason, Mahal has taken a beef with Roman Reigns, and that has led to Reigns’ brother getting involved. Tonight Rollins hopes to rid himself of Mahal and further cement his IC title reign.
Bobby Lashley is seeking revenge on Sami Zayn for last weeks segment involving his “sisters”. Now, we all know that segment was downright painful to watch, one of the absolute worst things, and I for one have no desire to see the feud continue. Lashley has been a moot point since returning and a feud with Sami Zayn just doesn’t make sense or do either man any favours. Hopefully they can turn perceptions around and make us care, even a little.
Also on tonight’s show, Braun Strowman looks to continue his momentum towards Money In The Bank, Nia Jax responds to Ronda Rousey, and I’m sure Roman Reigns will pop-up at some point. Remember to download the Ringside Talk app and let us know what you’re excited to see. Enjoy the show!
