Sasha Banks is one step closer to owning the Money in the Bank briefcase after her Gauntlet Match win on RAW.
The Boss came in last and saw off Ruby Riott, who herself had put paid to the hopes of Dana Brooke, Mickey James, and Bayley.
They Hugger had kicked things off with Liv Morgan, and had also seen off her fellow Riott Squad member Sarah Logan.
With so many potential sub-plots bubbling, you can’t help but feel a little empty after the match however.
What’s happened to the tensions between Sasha and Bayley? Surely that would have been the prefect final two?
Having Ruby see off three women made her look strong, so why not have her in the Ladder Match? For all three to fail in the match, does nothing for their credibility.
And also spare a thought for Liv Morgan – ousted by Bayley in about six seconds. Why?
Catch the best of the action here.
There was something all a little odd about Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey’s segment on RAW this week.
Things between the two had all been pretty amicable since their title match at Money in the Bank was announced, but started to go downhill at their contract signing last week – no surprise there.
Since her feud with Alexa Bliss, Jax has been relishing the face role and has been flourishing in it. Now it feels like that tide is turning.
She took the opportunity of a squash match to describe in detail to Rousey, who was sat on commentary, how she’d be able to counter an armbar – and also crush the former UFC star’s chest with a series of high-impact moves. Spare a thought for the poor jobber in all this.
When Jax invited Rousey down to the ring, things got a little weird. As you can see here.
As we head towards Money in the Bank we are seeing more and more of the Ladder Match combatants.
As with last week, we saw Finn Balor take on Braun Strowman.
Now, Finn has been one of the red brand’s hottest properties for some time – bringing out stellar match after stellar match, going right back to his impressive stint in the Royal Rumble.
Strowman is a one-man wrecking machine who has been laying a trail of destruction since before his win at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
Everything between now and MITB has the air of setup play, but the two still managed to entertain on RAW this week.
Balor looked to be getting the better of the Monster Among Men, but enter Kevin Owens.
You can see what went down here.
