Today we take a look the 5 Talking Points of June ppp11th edition of WWE Monday Night Raw. This was a far better show in comparison to last week’s mess! It featured solid matches involving men as well as woman.
1. A Very Interesting Opening Segment :
After quite a long time, we got a really fun and entertaining opening segment that featured both men and women who had qualified for their respective ‘Money In The Bank Ladder’ matches. They were standing on ladders while the briefcases were hanging above.
Out comes Kurt Angle followed by ‘Constable’ Baron Corbin (who now has a nice shaved head).
There are back and forth rants about how both the briefcases Should return to Raw otherwise Stephanie McMahon will be unhappy.
Moreover, we got to see a fun interaction between the men and women, where Alexa claimed that her Mix Tag partner Braun will win, while Balor said his Mix Tag partner, Sasha will win.
A good start to the show.

2. The B-TEAM Confronts Deleters Of The World:
The B-TEAM won a match against Heath Slater and Rhyno. After the match, RAW Tag Team Champions, Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt appeared on the big screen to interrupt their celebrations. Soon however, they appear near the ring. In a typical fashion, Wyatt says stuff like, they’re being watched by fireflies. In the end, Hardy says that they’ll delete the B-TEAM!
3. Seth Rollins And Elias:
Elias comes to the ring and get’s a pop from the crowd for his customary, “Walk With Elias” phrases. He then goes on to tell how he will win the Intercontinental Championship when he defeats Seth Rollins at Money In The Bank.
He also goes on to show the WWE Universe a custom made Fender “acoustic electric” that was gifted to him by his friend, John Mayer. Rollins runs to the ring next. There’s back and forth Bantering between him and Elias. In the end, he destroys the guitar by hitting The Stomp!
4. Nia Jax Confronts Ronda Rousey:
Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax have their face-to-face confrontation before their match at Money In The Bank. Jax then tries to attack Ronda, but her plan backfires. Ronda instead reverses it and Ronda locks in the Armbar on Jax. Nia Jax is screaming in pain, and finally she taps out to the Armbar. Sunday’s match will definitely be interesting!

5. Men’s Fatal-4 Way:
Throughout the night, Kevin Owens was trying to woo the other two competitors (Finn Balor and Bobby Roode) to fight by his side, in order to confront the Monster, aka Braun Strowman in the main event of Raw. In a way, this actually happened and the three men actually worked together for a while to bring down the monster. They hit him with a Coup de Grace, a Glorious DDT, and a top-rope frog splash. But inspite of all this, Braun made it to his feet and won the match after hitting Owen’s with a chokeslam and running powerslam for the pin!
Sunday’s MITB ladder match is looking good. It will be interesting to see who wins the Men’s and Women’s briefcase…
