Last night on Raw, all eight competitors (four men and four women) who will be representing the red brand in their respective Money in the Bank Ladder Matches were announced.
There were no preliminary matches or tournaments, simply an introduction by Alexa Bliss. The four men from Raw will be Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman, and Ricochet.
A tag match soon broke out between them, with Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin challenging Ricochet and Braun Strowman. As McIntyre and Corbin’s friendship has recently dissolved, Ricochet and Braun made a much better team and took the victory.
The 4 women of Raw were introduced in a similar fashion, Alexa Bliss entrusted with the job of announcing them. After welcoming Natalya, Dana Brooke, and Naomi to join her on the stage with relative indifference, Alexa Bliss revealed the fourth representative: herself.
This outraged the other three, who insisted that there must be someone more deserving of the coveted opportunity. Alexa Bliss shook off their criticisms easily, but Naomi took it a step further, challenging Alexa to a match. Due to an unfortunate shoelace incident, Alexa Bliss lost the match, furthering her unworthiness in the eyes of her opponents.
