The biggest surprise of Money in the Bank came at the very end when John Cena came out following the WWE Universal Title main event match between Roman Reigns and Edge. After the show, the 16-time world champion took to WWE’s Twitter account and announced that he will be opening Raw tonight to address what’s next for him in the ring. All signs point to him dueling with Reigns at SummerSlam but it will be intriguing to see what he has to say after being away for so long.
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley dominated Kofi Kingston in less than eight minutes on Sunday to continue his long-standing title reign. With Kingston’s New Day compatriot Big E winning the men’s MITB ladder match, there’s a chance the champ could get confronted by the powerhouse from Smackdown. Orrrrr, the rumor mill has been buzzing about Goldberg being the man to challenge Lashley at SummerSlam, so we could also see a surprise return of the former WCW champion.
Another point of intrigue is the direction of Charlotte Flair after she defeated Rhea Ripley at MITB to regain the Raw Women’s Championship. There’s numerous possibilities of where they can go with her for SummerSlam as they could do one final match between her and Ripley or have her face women’s MITB winner Nikki A.S.H. And then there’s the possibility of Becky Lynch making her long anticipated return to the ring tonight after being out for over a year due to her pregnancy. Lynch and Flair have had several epic clashes in the past and running it back in a full stadium in Las Vegas could very well be the move.
