World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fans were in a treat tonight as the latest episode of Monday Night RAW saw an exciting main event finish. The latest show took place at The O2 Arena in South East London. It was an altercation between Roman Reigns and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle, that saw the beginning of the show.
Roman Reigns, who couldn’t qualify for the Money in the Bank Ladder last week, called out Jinder Mahal to face him like a man. However, it was Kurt Angle who turned up. The duo got into an argument where Reigns asked the General Manager to put him into a qualifying match later tonight. Angles denies the request, saying Reigns wouldn’t be getting any more qualifying opportunities and that’s ‘best for the business’. A furious Reigns then leaves the ring and head backstage to look out for Jinder Mahal.
The first match in the night was between Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins, who kept his title on the line, and Kevin Owens, who accepted the open challenge. The crowds start the duelling chants prepping up both the WWE superstars. However, it is Seth-CLEVER-Rollins who wins the match.
There were a lot of matches in the night that saw the WWE Universe get going. Bobby Roode and Alexa Bliss win their respective Triple Threat MITB qualifying matches in the night.
