The King of the Ring tournament returns

- Cesaro vs Samoa Joe
- Cedric Alexander vs Sami Zayn
Sasha Banks’ brutal return sparks questions
After months of being on a hiatus, Sasha Banks made her return to RAW last week. And she did not waste any time in sending out a strong message. She not only brutalized Natalya in front of her home crowd, but she also got better of Becky in the brawl later. With no other women looking to be stepping up to her, Becky could expect Sasha to be her next challenger for the title.
AJ Styles vs Braun Strowman – WWE United States Championship Match
Braun Strowman sent a strong message to OC when he made the save on Seth Rollins and Ricochet against them. After the show, AJ Styles also tried to send him a message and told him not to interfere in his business. Next, Styles challenged Strowman for a match at RAW with the United States Title on the line. Strowman gleefully accepted.
Walking with (and running after) Elias
Last week did not start very well for Elias as he was defeated by Ricochet in an impromptu match. However, he was able to sneak up on R-Truth and Carmella later in the show and attacked Truth with his guitar to win the 24/7 Championship for the third time. As usual, he would have to be on a lookout for the potential threats for his 24/7 title.
