A week before Money in the Bank 2019, WWE Raw kicked off with Roman Reigns appearing on “Miz TV,” while the rest of the show built up towards the red brand’s stars working as a preview for the upcoming pay per view Money in the Bank.
The biggest shock of the night occurred when Sami Zayn defeated Braun Strowman and earned the right to replace him in the men’s Money in the Bank match.
In the women’s division, Becky Lynch’s double contract signing ended with both challengers Lacey Evans and Charlotte powerbombing her through a table.
The opening segment which featured MizTV with Roman Reigns quickly snowballed into a tag team match when Shane McMahon appeared along with his two enforcers — Bobby Lashley and Elias. The tag-team match came to a swift end when McMahon interfered, handing Reigns & Miz a victory by disqualification.
Elsewhere, Baron Corbin handed the high-flying Ricochet his first loss on the red brand while Rey Mysterio win against Samoa Joe was not a fluke after beating Cesaro on Raw.
In the main event of the night, The Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match picture was shaken up in a major way in Raw’s main event, when Sami Zayn rode an assist from Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre to defeat Braun Strowman in a Falls Count Anywhere Match where The Monster Among Men’s “Money” berth was on the line.
