The road to WWE SummerSlam moves along as Monday Night Raw tonight comes live from the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City.
Last week’s episode was full of surprises in the fallout of the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, highlighted by the crowing of a new Raw Women’s Champion. Tonight’s show is bound to pivot us forward towards the showcase event of the summer in Las Vegas.

Last Monday’s Raw ended on a high with Nikki A.S.H standing tall as the new Raw Women’s Champion. The “almost superhero” cashed in her Money in the Bank contract on Charlotte Flair following the latter’s title rematch with Rhea Ripley that ended in disqualification. Nikki is set to hold a title celebration during tonight’s episode, a segment that is bound to be interrupted by both Flair and Ripley to set up a potential match at SummerSlam between the three competitors.
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley followed up a dominant title defense against Kofi Kingston at MITB by dispatching of a returning Keith Lee last Monday but was greeted afterwards by Goldberg, who promptly challenged the champ to a match for the belt. Lashley will respond to Goldberg’s challenge tonight.
Just eight days after successfully defending their titles at MITB, Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos will once again square up with the Viking Raiders with the belts on the line. Also, John Cena is schedule to appear on the show as part of the “Summer of Cena” tour. The 16-time world champ is currently lobbying for a showdown with WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns over on Smackdown but we’ll see who steps up to challenge Cena on the red brand tonight.
