WWE RAW started off with the RAW Superstars competing in the men’s and women’s MITB Ladder matches standing on ladders in the ring.

RAW GM Kurt Angle came down to the entrance ramp and promoted WWE Money in the Bank this Sunday. Constable of RAW Baron Corbin interrupted with a shaved head (finally!) and stated that he is here to ensure that RAW runs smoothly. Baron said that Stephanie McMahon will be disappointed if both MITB contracts don’t come back to RAW.

Alexa Bliss, Ember Moon, and Sasha Banks started arguing on the ladders. Angle interrupted and asked Natalya if she was ready to compete on Sunday. Natalya said that she was ready to grab the contract for a future match against Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women’s Championship.

Kevin Owens asked Angle if the briefcase will be raised when Strowman climbs the ladder because he is taller than everyone else. Angle stated that the briefcase will remain at the same height the entire time and Owens got pissed off. Roode, Balor, Strowman, and Owens started arguing with each other.

Alexa Bliss shrieked to get everyone to shut up and said that her Mixed Match Challenge partner, Braun Strowman, will win the men’s MITB Ladder Match. Sasha Banks said that Finn Balor will win and everyone started arguing again. The segment ended with Braun Strowman telling everyone to shut up and announcing that someone is going to get these hands on Sunday.

Later on RAW, Kevin Owens presented Balor with some olives as a way of offering Finn an olive branch. Owens suggested that everyone team up against Braun Strowman in the Fatal 4-Way match so that they could take him out before Money in the Bank. Owens approached Roode backstage later in the night and suggested the same plan.

Opinion: This promo probably sounded great when it was pitched, but I couldn’t get over how silly it was that everyone was just conversing on for symbolism. The main thing I took from this was that Corbin shaved his head.
