At last night's PPV Payback, we witnessed perhaps the fall of the Roman Empire, with Braun absolutely obliterating Roman Reigns. Not only did Braun Strowman win the main event, because that is never enough for Braun, he went on to fully assault Roman. He used the steel steps to his advantage and crushed Roman with them. By the end of the night, Roman was spitting blood from his mouth and could hardly move. Will we see Roman tonight? What condition is he in exactly? Does Braun have another target in mind, or is he content with beating the crap out of Roman any chance he gets? It seems that nothing can satiate Braun's thirst for blood, but tonight we may get some more answers.
We also have a new Raw Women's champion, Alexa Bliss, who is the first woman to hold both the Smackdown Live and Raw Women's Championship. Who will come after that title first? Will Bayley be getting her rematch in the near future?
What is next for Bray Wyatt? He defeated Randy Orton with the help of Jinder Mahal last night at Payback, so what is next for the Eater of Worlds?
Lots of questions tonight, so let's see what Monday Night Raw has in store for us. Are you ready?
The women of the Raw roster are in the ring to start and Alexa Bliss the new Raw Women's Champion makes her way to the ring.
Alexa says that she made Kurt Angle have all the women present in the ring. She says the "Queen" is dead, proclaims herself a "goddess". She says she deserves a coronation, she thanks Mickie James and throws digs at Mickie being older than the rest of the roster. Alexa then thanks Sasha Banks, thanking her for pinning her to get where she is at by pinning her. Alexa accidentally bumps into Nia Jax and doesn't talk any smack to or about Nia. Alexa gets on a platform and talks down to Bayley. If it weren't for Bayley, Alexa being champ wouldn't be possible. Alexa doing great on her promo cutting down the rest of the roster. She really cuts into Bayley talking about her family, Balyey overturns the platform sending Alexa flying and all mayhem breaks lose in the ring with the women all fighting against each other. Commercial break.
