Raw Week 8:

As the show starts, Shawn Michaels is backstage and says he's worked all week to build a great card for tonight as Raw begins building towards Money In The Bank. First off, there will be two Money In The Bank Qualifying Matches tonight, the first will be Alexa Bliss vs Charlotte Flair vs Natalya, the second Bianca Belair vs Ember Moon vs Mickie James. On top of that we will find out the next challenger to Kevin Owens in a fatal 5 way elimination match with Daniel Bryan, Braun Strowman, Rey Mysterio, Seth Rollins and Baron Corbin being the competitors in the match. But that's not all as in tonight's opening match we'll find out the #1 contenders for the World Tag Team Titles as 3 teams will fight in an elimination tables match, and the winners will be challenging the winners of American Alpha vs Undisputed Era, as next week they'll have a Steel Cage Match for the titles to make sure this time nobody not involved in the match gets attacked.

Later on Otis scoop slams Rezar and hits a Caterpillar as Tucker takes out Jeff Hardy with a running crossbody while Matt and Akam brawl on the floor. Otis picks up Jeff and hits the Worlds Strongest Slam on Jeff but Jeff counters a follow up attempt with a jawbreaker, only to get shoved into a table in the corner by Rezar and chopped against it. Tucker tries to put Matt through a table but he's countered and Matt throws Tucker into the steel steps then hits him with a Side Effect. A couple minutes later Jeff Hardy sees an opportunity for an elimination as he places Rezar onto a table, and climbs up to the top turnbuckle and goes for a Swanton Bomb, but Rezar rolls off the table and Jeff crashes through the table and a few minutes later after another table is set up in the ring in one of the corners, Rezar powerbombs Jeff through it and gets the first elimination of the match! The fight continues for a couple minutes but the second elimination comes when Matt Hardy places Tucker Knight onto a table, and sends him crashing through it with a diving leg drop, taking this match down to 4. Matt fights with Akam on the floor while Otis fights with Rezar in the ring, AOP having to fight off the unlikely alliance of Matt and Otis, and Matt hits a Twist of Fate on Akam as Rezar knocks Otis off his feet with a big clothesline!

Matt gets to his feet and realizes the situation he's in, and quickly clotheslines Rezar out of the ring before Akam can get in the ring, and he begins pounding on Akam, taking him down after a spin kick. Matt continues to fight them off as best he can for awhile, but the numbers are too much and he takes a beatdown for a bit.

He wants to go another round with Braun and he wants to do it right now. Braun comes out onto the stage and says he's got a match in the main event tonight, but he'll never turn down a fight and if Ambrose wants these hands, he's happy to give them to him.

Peyton Royce and Billie Kay walk into the office of Shawn Michaels, and Peyton asks if he wanted them there to praise her for the fantastic victory over Asuka last night. Shawn says no, in fact he's disappointed in her for getting herself disqualified, and he's getting fed up with her antics all together. Peyton says she did what she had to do to keep the belt, but if Asuka can win a contenders match she would be happy to give her another shot. Shawn says he's glad she's willing to give Asuka another shot...because that's exactly what she's going to do at Money In The Bank. Peyton and Billie both get angry but Shawn cuts them off and says he's not done yet, because when they have the rematch Billie Kay is going to be banned from ringside and if Peyton is disqualified or counted out, Asuka will become the new champion. Peyton is furious now and demands Shawn change his mind, but Shawn says his decision is final, if Peyton wants to stay champion she has to pin or submit Asuka and do it without Billie's help. The two storm out of the office.

Akira Tozawa makes his way out for a match, but suddenly he's jumped from behind by EC3 with a steel chair! EC3 beats the hell out of Tozawa with it, even dropping a referee when they try to stop him. He finishes the beatdown by dropping Akira on the chair with a One Percenter. EC3 walks away now as doctors come out to check on Tozawa.

Roman Reigns is backstage when The Usos come up to him and ask him how he's doing after losing to Kevin Owens last night. He says he's disappointed but he gave it his best shot and he'll get back to the title picture eventually.
