Monday Night Raw Main Storylines

It was an interesting week for the Raw brand. Following Monday night’s event in Seattle, they traveled to Melbourne Australia for Super Show-Down and Ronda Rousey’s return to Australia.

The ending to Triple H and the Undertaker at Super Show-Down suggests the Raw “legends division” will continue going through Crown Jewel. A potential Undertaker and Kane vs Shawn Michaels and Triple H tag match seemingly on the horizon. While this mega program is underway, all the Raw titles have been kept safe. Rollins will likely have to defend his Intercontinental Championship against Drew McIntyre in the not too distant future, stemming from McIntyre’s victory over him on Raw this week.

Ronda Rousey will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against an opponent TBD at Evolution. Over the next few weeks on Raw we should find out who that is.

As for the Universal Championship, with Super Show-Down out of the way, the top of the men single’s division will now focus on the upcoming triple threat at Crown Jewel between Reigns, Strowman and Brock Lesnar.

Liv Morgan Injury Update

Liv Morgan may have suffered a concussion two weeks ago on Raw but she recovered quick. Morgan was able to travel to that weekend’s house shows and was later cleared to compete at Super Show-Down.

Sasha Banks

Banks is out with an undisclosed injury. From the sounds of it she’s either letting some nagging injuries get some rest or she’s taking some time to recharge.
