So, it came as no surprise that fans instantly knew the game WWE was playing when they made a decision to ignite a feud between Reigns and Jinder Mahal, following the latter's move over from SmackDown LIVE to Monday Night RAW as part of the Superstar Shake-up.
Roman Reigns and Jinder Mahal are now absolutely bound to compete in a one-on-one match against each other in the near future and the two men could very well throw it down at this year's MITB PPV.
In the women's division, before Raw took place, Ronda Rousey was challenged by Raw Women's Champion Nia Jax to a title match at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event. He (Mahal) had attacked him from ringside when Reigns was set to deliver a spear.
Rousey, at first reluctant to accept Jax's offer, agreed to the match as the pair shook hands together before being joined by Smackdown's Charlotte Flair. Last week, he gave a sit-down interview which had him discussing his family, and he still seems kind of lost in storylines right now, but maybe more will happen on the next Raw. Rollins won a long, back-and-forth match with a Curb Stomp. Rollins picks up Owens and hits him with the revolution knee, and then he climbs to the top himself, and he goes for the frog splash, but this time Owens gets his knees up.
- Raw GM Kurt Angle is talking on his phone when Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas, Axel says that they want a shot at the Raw Tag Team Titles. Jose tries getting back in the ring and Corbin knocks him back to the arena floor, Corbin goes outside the ring to throw Jose into the barricade. Roode sendsa a charging Corbin out of the ring before nailing Jose with a Glorious DDT for a three count.
Kevin Owens, after losing to Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins, called his friend Stephanie McMahon who used her power as Raw commissioner to have Owens take Mahal's place in the Triple Threat Match. Reigns is once again getting booed out of the building, and you have to wonder how much is muted out with it not being a live show.
