Bobby Lashley defended his WWE Championship against Randy Orton in the main event of Monday Night RAW. Lashley successfully retained his title but his luck simply ran out after that.
Big E came out and cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase as promised. Making use of his opportunity, Big E thwarted Bobby Lashley and managed to beat him for the WWE Championship.
While speaking to Rick Ucchino, Big E stated that Monday Night RAW is his show after winning the WWE Championship and wants to focus on making RAW the best show it can be.
“Raw is my show. That WWE Championship means that Raw is my show. I’m the king of the hill there. Right now, I’ve been going back and forth with SmackDown a little bit, but that will be over soon. I want to focus on making RAW the best show it can be. I take pride in that. A lot of times the viewership and the quality of the show is on the WWE Champion, and that’s a big marker for having a really good reign. RAW will be my focus, but you never know how things shake out here. It’s a topsy turvy world so there’s a chance that I might show up on SmackDown, but my focus is RAW right now.”
We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Big E now that he became the WWE Champion.
