LA Knight

LA Knight has some strong words for Logan Paul

Logan Paul made his return to WWE Raw tonight — the first appearance since the social media superstar suffered a loss in a match against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania last April. Paul immediately returned to a top spot on the card when he immediately declared himself one of the participants in the upcoming Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match at the premium live event of the same name.

LA Knight, another participant in the match, isn’t impressed by Paul. And furthermore, he wants Paul to understand that he’s the one opponent to look out for in this match because he’s on a path to the top.

Who walked in the door? Logan Paul. All of a sudden, he decides he’s just going to declare himself for Money in the Bank. Is that how it works, huh? Because as far as I know, each and every one of us had to go do a qualifying match, did we not? That’s fine. I’m not going to sit here and bellyache and complain. Tell you what, Logan Paul, they call you a “social media megastar.” Good for you. But right now, you’re looking into the eyes of the megastar. Don’t get lost in the sauce because here’s the deal, man, when we get to Money in the Bank, well, come on down. Because what you’re going to find is you’ll get stung like it’s killer bees.”


Updated card for WWE Money in the Bank

After tonight’s Raw, two new additions were added to the 2023 Money in the Bank matches.

Kevin Owens almost loses his cool at Imperium

Kaiser says that if the two of them are not careful, the same thing will happen to them. Owens starts freaking out about the situation, but a message on Zayn’s phone interrupts the conversation. Was it Cody asking for partners in the main event?

Here comes Alpha Academy!


Riddle overcomes the numbers games of Imperium for a win

Kaiser is met on the top rope by Riddle who nails a fisherman superplex that drives Ludwig hard into the mat. They struggle to get to their feet, but when they do, Riddle Riddle gets a flurry of offense like an overhead kick, a T-bone suplex, and an attempt at a broton splash that is reversed with Ludwig’s knees.

Paul says the best people came from Cleveland: Lebron James, Jerry Lawler, and Logan Paul. He looks back at the moments that made him great in Cleveland, and it all happened when he left.

Paul says he’s the best of those people from Ohio cause they are always losing, like his brother in his last boxing match, him at WrestleMania, and The Miz tonight. Logan Paul is ready to turn the tide around for people from Ohio.

He throws some jabs at Paul and his Prime Drink brand before telling the group that his name is on that MITB briefcase.

Paul climbs to the top of a ladder and poses with the MITB briefcase as the segment ends.

Green tags in and continues the trend, with a stomp and a hair pull on Chance. Carter tags in and goes to work on both opponents, putting them in the corner with a double forearm. She hits a dropkick/splash combo and tags Chance in once more.

Kevin OWens

Does Kevin Owens have an anger problem?

Backstage, we catch up with Byron Saxton who is catching up with Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Saxton asks Zayn about The Bloodline, but Owens interrupts and asks why they have to talk about The Bloodline every week. Zayn says he didn’t want to do this in front of everyone, but he thinks Owens is a “rage-aholic.” He thinks he has an anger problem.

Sami bets Owens that if he can go the rest of the night without having any tantrums, he won’t bring it up again. But if he blows up at least once, he has to admit he has a problem going on. They leave it at that.

Sonya Deville & Chelsea Green battle Kayden Carter & Katana Chance

FInn Balor

Finn speaks up first, telling Seth Rollins that his open challenge is canceled for tonight because of him. He’s the “only one” that’s going to take the World Heavyweight Title from Seth.

Balor tells the audience that they’ll have to sing his song at his funeral. They start singing the song in response, prompting Rhea Ripley to tell them to shut up and respect JD and Mami. She says that the WWE Universe will be bowing down to them and Balor after Money in the Bank after every single member of the faction comes out victorious at MITB.

Priest emphasizes her point, saying that the MITB briefcase is coming home with him at the PLE. And the contract inside will have Damian Priest written all over it. He turns to Dominik Mysterio and tells his rival, Cody Rhodes, that he needs to keep Dom’s name out of his mouth or he will be in a position where he can never fight again.

Dom starts talking, which, of course, cause some deafening boos to drown out his words. He looks frustrated as he tries to speak up some more. He ends up yelling that Cody is going to get what’s coming to him, and tonight, he wants Rhodes to find two partners to battle The Judgment Day as a collective force tonight.

We then see a replay of what happened to The Bloodline on Friday.

Gable Stevenson

Update on Gable Steveson's NCAA status

Ever since winning the Olympic Gold Medal and signing a contract with WWE, the WWE Universe has been awaiting Gable Steveson’s debut pro wrestling match.

A new report from PWInsider Elite has emerged that reveals Ciampa will be backstage at tonight’s episode of Raw. Will this be the night of the former NXT Champion’s return to the red brand?

It might be a perfect night for not only Ciampa to make a return, but it would also be fitting for Johnny Gargano to realign with Ciampa to re-form DIY. Raw will be in Gargano’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, so it’s expected that the rising WWE star will appear in some capacity.
