City: Lincoln, NE

Raw begins with a memoriam to former referee Tim White who
passed away.

Out first is Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. She
announces she was looking forward to her match against Rhea
Ripley, but Ripley will not be medically cleared, so tonight
there will be a fatal five-way match with Alexa Bliss,
Carmella, Liv Morgan, Asuka and Becky Lynch to see who she
will face at Money in the Bank.

Becky Lynch comes out and says she will win, Asuka comes out
laughing and makes fun of Lynch, Liv Morgan comes out says
she is always ready for a fight and is already qualified to
be in the Money in the Bank ladder match but she would
gladly turn that in for a match for the championship.
Carmella comes out and says she knows why everyone else is
out here and they were all former champions but why are you
out here Liv?

Carmella suggests kicking Morgan out of the match and making
it a fatal four way. Carmella then says Morgan only got in
the Money in the Bank ladder match by riding Alexa Bliss’
coattails.

Alexa comes out and says Carmella can’t be successful on her
own. As they argue, Bianca interrupts and says we all know
you can all run your mouths, but the WWE Universe is ready
for some action.
