WWE Raw notes: Bálor/Priest, Cody Rhodes fends off Lesnar, Ricochet calls out Logan Paul

In the main event of Monday Night Raw, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins took on Dominik Mysterio. Mr. Money in the Bank Damian Priest interfered and ambushed Rollins. As Priest was being encouraged to cash in, Finn Bálor went after Rollins before Priest had the opportunity to do so. This led to the two Judgment Day members arguing. 

To kick off the show, Cody Rhodes joined Seth Rollins in the ring and before Rhodes could speak, Brock Lesnar’s music hit and him and Rhodes began to brawl. Rhodes fought Lesnar off. Later in the show while speaking to Jackie Redmond in her first appearance on the show as a correspondent, Rhodes said he’ll fight Lesnar anywhere. 

Following Money in the Bank and the two talents going at each other after the match, Ricochet called out Logan Paul to meet him in the ring for a face-to-face on 7/10.  

Before things turned physical, former Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey exchanged words about what occurred at Money in the Bank. Baszler got the upper hand over Rousey. 

Maxxine Dupri’s pro wrestling in-ring debut took place as she teamed with Chad Gable and Otis to defeat Valhalla and The Viking Raiders (Ivar & Erik). 

There are new number one contenders to Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan’s Women’s Tag Team Championships. Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville won a Gauntlet match that included the duos of Tegan Nox and Dana Brooke, Katana Chance and Kayden Carter, Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae in addition to Emma and Nikki Cross. 

Scheduled for 7/10 are the following matches: 

  • Zoey Stark (w/ Trish Stratus) vs. Becky Lynch
  • No-DQ Match: The Miz vs. Tommaso Ciampa
  • Drew McIntyre & Matt Riddle vs. Imperium

Rhea Ripley successfully defended her Women’s World Title by defeating Natalya. Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez came out to stop Ripley’s post-match attack.
