Bobby Lashley & MVP vs Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods
Bobby Lashley vs Kofi Kingston storyline, or the New Day vs Hurt Business storyline, will continue this week in the form of a tag team match. WWE earlier announced a rematch between Lashley and Woods, but that plan has changed now.
Kofi Kingston pinned Lashley last month in a non-title match. He failed to beat Drew McIntyre in the #1 contender match in the following weeks. After Lashley retained the title against McIntyre at Hell in a Cell, WWE Championship needed a new challenger. Kofi made himself available as he called out Lashley to put his title on the line at Money in the Bank.
Lashley agreed to the title and also brutalized Woods in Hell in a Cell match later that night. On top of that, MVP locked the cage from inside to give Lashley more time to beat up Woods post-match.
Last week, Kofi called out MVP and Lashley for their vicious act, leading to a war of words. Kofi ended up hitting MVP with Trouble in Paradise, which paved the way for MVP’s in-ring return.
MITB Participants to Feature on the MizTV
The RAW side of participants for the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder match – Drew McIntyre, Riddle, Ricochet and John Morrison – will appear on the MizTV segment.
What kind of fire would Miz be able to start within the group that would spice up the MITB ladder match? Will Riddle try to give his place to Randy Orton after he failed to win the last chance qualifier last week?
Ricochet vs John Morrison
Ricochet and John Morrison gave a fine match last week on RAW. Also, the match ended in one of the classic moments of RAW. As Morrison looked to take a breather on the barricade, Ricochet crashed through him with a crossbody that took both of them beyond the barricades. The match ended in a disqualification, but Ricochet’s stocks rose through the fans once again.
This week, Ricochet and Johnny Drip Drip will face off in a rematch. Who will come out on top this time around? Or will we see any winner at all?
Charlotte Flair to Provide Medical Update
Rhea Ripley hit Charlotte with a chop block after Flair pinned Dana Brooke last week on RAW. In an update, WWE has informed on their website that Flair has asked for time on RAW to provide a medical update on her knee injury.
Has Flair suffered a severe injury and would have to pull out from the title match at Money in the Bank? Or is this some trap for Rhea Ripley?
