Monday Night Raw opens with a replay of last week’s ending with Bobby Lashley and Lana kissing on stage. Rusev is getting attacked by King Corbin and Randy Orton. He fends them off and Bobby Lashley appears on the big screen calling him out. He’s at Rusev’s house and has on his robe. Bobby then gets in his bed and Lana comes in. She tells Rusev that she’s taken him to the cleaners. Rusev stands in the ring with a very broken and pitiful look. After the video goes off, he snaps on Randy and Baron and attacks them both with steel ring steps. Fans can anticipate a confrontation between Braun Strowman and Tyson Fury.
Lacey Evans vs Natalya in a last woman standing match is up next. They show Lacey tapping out to the Sharpshooter at Hell in a Cell last night. Lacey cuts a promo saying she’s going to take Nattie out like the trash she is. Nattie on the offense early. Commentary mentions this might be the last time they face off with each other after the draft. We come back from commercial and Lacey has the upper hand as she attacks Nattie with a kendo stick and gets several near ten counts on the outside of the ring. They fight up the ramp and even though Lacey Evans threw her into the LED display at the top of the stage, Nattie regained the momentum and picked up the victory after power bombing Lacey off the stage.
