05/20 Raw Discussion Thread - Mr. Beast In The Bank



WWE Raw preview, May 20, 2019: Welcome to the era of “Mr. Money in the Beast”

Quote:
Brock Lesnar stormed out of nowhere to win the Men’s Money in the Bank contract, meaning Universal Champion Seth Rollins will have little time to rest on his laurels following a win over AJ Styles. Plus, Becky Lynch faces life as a single champion for the first time since WrestleMania, and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley returns to introduce WWE’s newest championship. Raw airs live tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.


Money In The Beast

Quote:
In one of the most stunning moments in WWE Money in the Bank history, Brock Lesnar emerged out of nowhere as a replacement to the attacked Sami Zayn and laid waste to Ali to capture the Money in the Bank contract. As a result, Seth Rollins will surely have little time to celebrate his victory over AJ Styles. As if The Beast wasn’t already one of the most dangerous threats to the Universal Championship, Lesnar comes with the complete unpredictability of a Money in the Bank cash-in, whenever he chooses to utilize it. Will light be shed on Lesnar’s latest conquest and how it came to be?


A new championship emerges

Quote:
One of the more unexpected twists of WWE Money in the Bank — and there was some competition — was the announcement that WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley would return to Raw to unveil WWE’s newest championship. Speculation immediately began about what the former Raw General Manager could have in store for WWE, but hints are scarce.


Usos Rules

Quote:
The Usos are in the catbird seat right about now. Not only do they have the advantage as they weigh a challenge from The Revival, but a non-title victory over Daniel Bryan & Rowan on the WWE Money in the Bank Kickoff has*SmackDown*Tag Team Championship implications as well, via the Wild Card Rule. The world is Jimmy & Jey’s oyster, and they have their pick of grudges to pursue: Personal vendetta or, perhaps, championship gold. What’s it gonna be?


Becky One Belt

Quote:
Becky Lynch survived a tough challenge from Lacey Evans to retain her Raw Women’s Championship at WWE Money in the Bank, but The Lady of WWE made sure Lynch was less fortunate against Charlotte Flair. Evans attacked Lynch with the Woman’s Right in the middle of the Irishwoman’s second title defense, allowing The Queen to relieve her of the SmackDown Women’s Championship. With one title left to her name, Becky returns to Raw somewhat diminished, but no less motivated. The Man threw hands with Lacey immediately following the ambush, and while Charlotte’s own rivalry with Bayley (who cashed in on The Queen moments later to win the blue jewel) is just beginning, it seems Becky vs. Lacey is about to start a furious second act.

Tune in to Raw tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network to witness the fallout from WWE Money in the Bank!

Re: 05/20 Raw Discussion Thread - Mr. Beast In The Bank

They had their corny name for Brock too, Money in the Beast. Yuck. I dislike that more than Monster in the Bank. This makes Brock sound like a piggy bank.

I really don't understand the finishes to a lot of the matches last night. WWE has some explaining to do.

Edit: I would have went with a heel name for Brock, Bank Robber. He robbed everybody with no kayfabe justification for it.

Warriors/Blazers tonight at 9.

How low will the ratings be tomorrow? That's the real hook here?

Good luck to everyone watching this trash.

I think ratings will do well.

2.7 million for people to see the Becky, Bayley and Brock stuff, then drop as the night goes on.

2.3 or 2.4 million for hour 2.

Hour 3 above 2 million.

Re: 05/20 Raw Discussion Thread - Mr. Beast In The Bank

2.7 is generous. It couldn't even get to 2.7 last week without the NBA. I'd be surprised if it ever gets above 2.5. Bayley is on SD (and won't do much anyway), Becky hasn't proven to generate much ratings, and Brock stopped moving the needle in even a small way at least a year ago, which is all the more reason why last night's ending was such a tragicomedy.

Re: 05/20 Raw Discussion Thread - Mr. Beast In The Bank

1) That better be the Hardcore belt.
2) They better put it on someone tonight and let the fucking 24/7 mayhem kick off. (I am a big supporter of this idea. With how reliant WWE is on social media these days I think it could be really fun)
3) Corbin and Drew need to be seperated. Have them fight each other if need be.
4) Where does Lacey go now? (A tag title run with Charlotte sounds fun!)
5) Joe needs to kill Dom.
6) Bray Wyatt PLEASE.
7) Bork should cash in tonight.
8) Show can be decent meaning it'll blow.

Brock wasn’t part of the match, so I take it tonight’s RAW will start with him being stripped of the briefcase?

I may just catch Lacey's highlights on YT. Can't bring myself to care about anything else on this show anymore when I know its about to be Seth/Brock for 6 months.
