Commentary Team: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton & Samoa Joe
We get a quick update on Mysterio & Black, Byron says they dodged a bullet last night as after being thrown off the roof of WWE HQ they landed on a secondary roof so are unharmed
Becky Lynch comes out in street clothes & carrying the Women’s MITB case for some reason. She’s a bit weepy and says she’s about to go through a lot of changes and asked the powers that be to raise the stakes on Money in the Bank, and they did. She talks about not knowing if she was good enough to be in WWE when she came here and she gets increasingly weepy. Somewhere along the line she learned that people did care about her and put her on their shoulders to carry her into history.
The fans have stood up for her and had her back, and that’s why it’s the fans, we at home, that deserve to hear this from her first. She has to go away for a while.
Becky tells her that she’s beaten her when nobody else could, and she’s been the best for a long time, and that’s why she’s glad this is happening to her. Last night’s match wasn’t what she thought it was, it wasn’t for an opportunity at the title, it was for so much more. Lynch opens the case and the Raw Women’s Championship is inside of it, and it’s Asuka’s title now. This makes Asuka the second Grand Slam Women’s Champion, the first being Bayley.
Asuka looks on in disbelief before grabbing the title and celebrating with it, dancing atop the announce table. Becky tells her to go be a warrior, because Becky’s gonna go be a MOTHER. They hug together and Lynch leaves the new champ to celebrate
Becky Lynch is backstage for an interview but Rey Mysterio, the Street Profits, Ricochet, Nattie, Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan & R-Truth interrupt to congratulate her

WINNER: BOBBY LASHLEY
We get footage of Street Profits talking about a two-on-two basketball game they’ve set up against Viking Raiders.
Viking Raiders are then shown scoffing about the idea of being challenged to basketball instead of something cool like sword fighting or people throwing.

Drew gets on the mic and says he didn’t come to the ring to have a match but there’s a reason he’s always dressed to work. He has a couple of things to say— number one, his match against Seth Rollins last night was a hell of a fight and Seth brought it, but he’s still the champ and you keep setting ‘em up and he’ll knock ‘em down.
The second bit of news he has is that Raw has extended an invitation to a certain SmackDown superstar, who didn’t just accept, but chose him as their opponent. There’s a few things you can guarantee in life— death, taxes, and every single person on planet earth hates this guy. Next week on Raw, it’ll be Drew McIntyre, master of the Claymore, the sexy Scotsman, vs. King Corbin. He says you don’t want to miss it & promises to rip Corbin’s damn head off
MVP is backstage giving Bobby Lashley a pep talk and asking him what he’s doing fighting Humberto Carrillo when fools from SmackDown are coming to fight the WWE Champion and he hasn’t gotten a title shot since 2007. He asks when Lashley is gonna let Lashley out, admitting it’s a rhetorical question but he should think on it.

He talks about Drew McIntyre riding his coattails when they were a faction, and next week he’s gonna prove why he’s king.
Edge returned to Monday Night Raw this week to tell us he’s not quite done after WrestleMania 36, where he got his “pound of flesh” from Randy Orton. WWE promoted a confrontation between the two but that’s not what he came back for.
Of course, that’s what happened anyway.
Orton, too, returned. He faked like he could be the bigger man and say “the better man won” and walk off but instead he said “the better wrestler didn’t win.” That led to a challenge for another match between the two: a straight up singles match at Backlash on June 14.
Orton laid down the challenge but Edge never responded & the show just ends on a will he, won’t he accept cliffhanger
