The Money in the Bank pay-per-view buildup will happen in full force with just two weeks remaining for the show. Last week, the match card for the first post-Wrestlemania PPV received an immense boost from both WWE Raw and Smackdown. Both the weekly programming of the WWE inserted multiple matches into the card whereas also confirmed the participants for the ladder matches. Now it is time for both the men and women’s division participants to pick up momentums for this lifetime opportunity.
The rivalries will heat up among WWE Raw superstars around the Money in the Bank ladder match. Short-time alliances or feuds will be available to see on tonight’s show. Additionally, new matches including title bouts could also become official as per the ongoing storylines. Social media updates also suggest there’s a chance to see Roman Reigns on the show. Lastly, we will see whether Seth Rollins make a comeback in the Universal Championship storyline. Move forward to learn what we can expect from WWE Raw which airs from the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Universal Championship storyline should be the focal point of the show. Last week’s WWE Raw went off the air with both the superstars signing a contract and make their title match official. It was AJ Styles who stood tall after the segment by putting Seth Rollins through a table. He was the one to gain early momentums for two weeks in a row. It’s high time for the reigning champ to make his own statement. Otherwise, it’ll be an advantage for the Phenomenal One.
Surprisingly, Roman Reigns announced that he is intending to make an appearance on WWE Raw despite being a Smackdown superstar. He talked about some ‘unfinished business’ on the show which kept the rumor mill buzzing. Moreover, WWE provided an update stating that they will not allow The Big Dog to come back on the flagship show due to obligations. This might mean another fallout between Reigns and the McMahons on the show.
WWE officials have learned of Roman Reigns' desire to appear on Monday Night Raw, but as of now, and due to his obligations as a Smackdown Live Superstar, he will not be appearing on Monday Night Raw. https://t.co/4P0RNPmZB1

Money in the Bank ladder matches lineups is all set from WWE Raw. Last week, we have seen a few competitors winning their scheduled fight to keep the momentums in their favor. Braun Strowman, Ricochet and Naomi were the ones to do so as we now expect the heel superstars to come forward. They should emerge as winners in their respective matches.
Speaking of this brings us to the female competitors for Money in the Bank who have engaged in a war of words on Twitter. Mandy Rose, Bayley and Alexa Bliss featured in this who must be desperate for a victory in the upcoming ladder match. Last week, the show laces cost Alexa Bliss big-time during his match against Naomi. She must be looking forward to teaching a lesson to the Glowing One to prove who runs WWE Raw women’s division.
The Usos are up for a feud ever since returning to WWE Raw against The Revival. We have seen a weird back-shaving vignette to humiliate the former tag team champions. Yet they managed to come up with an impressive performance against Zack Ryder & Curt Hawkins. This might be leading to a three-way feud over the tag team titles. So we expect WWE may announce a triple threat title bout at Money in the Bank.
Another championship match could be in pipeline from WWE Raw over the United States Championship. Rey Mysterio picked up a clean pinfall win against Samoa Joe to earn a title shot. So, WWE.com hinted the Wrestlemania rematch may be happening at Money in the Bank,
“Mysterio defeated The Samoan Submission Machine in a non-title match, leaving Joe shaken in the ring and Rey’s son Dominick beaming from ear-to-ear. Of course, while a win doesn’t guarantee anything for The Ultimate Underdog, his use of the hands-across-the-waist taunt atop his son’s shoulders says it all: He wants the title. And now, he’s got a case for a championship bout.”
