The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
WWE Raw Results
It was the go-home Raw for Money in the Bank on Monday night. A gauntlet match for the final spot in the Men’s Money in the Bank match was one of the big matches of the evening. What else did Raw have in store? Here are the results from Raw on Monday night.
- A.J. Styles wins a gauntlet match to earn a spot in the Money in the Bank match
- Gauntlet eliminations:
- Bobby Lashley eliminated Titus O’Neil, Akira Tozawa, and Shelton Benjamin
- Humberto Carrillo eliminated Lashley by DQ, Angel Garza, and Austin Theory
- A.J. Styles eliminated Carrillo
- Brendan Vink & Shane Thorne def. 2 Fly Crew (Cedric Alexander & Ricochet)
- Viking Raiders def. Street Profits
- Charlotte Flair def. Liv Morgan
- Drew McIntyre def. Buddy Murphy
One of the biggest developments on the show was the return of A.J. Styles. He’s not a ghost, and he wasn’t buried for good. Instead he’s come back and now has a great chance to be Mr. Money in the Bank. Styles is a heel, who naturally work better as briefcase holders. It would be great to see a phenomenal cash-in.

It is very common for all of the Money in the Bank participants to have one big faceoff before their match. For the women’s match, that took place in MVP’s VIP lounge. Asuka and Shayna Baszler looked strong in the segment, with them kicking Nia Jax out of the ring.
MVP’s new clients of Vink & Thorne got a surprising win over Ricochet and Cedric Alexander. It looks like this stable is here to stay, and we’ll see if this leads to more screen time for MVP and his boys.
WWE Heel Turn Coming Soon?
There may be a plan in place for Apollo Crews after being removed from the Money in the Bank match. According to WrestlingNews, Crews is being primed for a heel turn. There were plans for Crews to turn heel earlier this year, but it was changed when Crews moved to Raw. It would be Crews first time heel in WWE, and could be just the shot in the arm that he needs to get his career to the next level.
Jimmy Uso Out 6-9 Months
The Usos tag team are back on the shelf. Jimmy Uso is out with a knee injury that will cost him 6-9 months of recovery time (h/t WrestlingInc). It is believed the injury happened during the Wrestlemania 36 triple threat ladder match. This injury is what led to the call-up of the Forgotten Sons and their insertion into the SmackDown Tag Team Championship picture. Here’s wishing Jimmy a speedy recovery.
