WWE Money in the Bank 2018 saw Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss emerge victorious in their Money in the Bank Ladder Matches, with Five Feet of Fury ruining Ronda Rousey’s singles match debut and cashing in on Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax to steal her fifth Women’s Title. What will the events of the explosive event mean for Monday Night Raw? WWE.com has some thoughts.
Will Alexa Bliss pay for cashing in?
After overcoming seven elite Raw and SmackDown LIVE competitors to climb the ladder and become Ms. Money in the Bank, Alexa Bliss stunned the WWE Universe by interrupting the Raw Women’s Championship Match between Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey on the same night and cashing her newly-captured contract to become a five-time Women’s Champion!
However, Alexa’s celebration could prove extremely short-lived, as The Irresistible Force and The Baddest Women on the Planet will surely be looking to take issue with Alexa tonight on Monday Night Raw. Find out what happens tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.
Does The Monster in the Bank have a plan for Brock Lesnar?
As frightening as it is to write, Braun Strowman is now The Monster in the Bank after steamrolling seven of Raw and SmackDown LIVE’s best in Sunday’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match to get these hands on the coveted contract.
Now that Strowman has a guaranteed World Title match anytime he wants within the next year, has there ever been a more dangerous threat to reigning Universal Champion Brock Lesnar? For that matter, considering that The Beast is often criticized for not making enough appearances on Monday Night Raw, when and where will The Monster Among Men choose to strike? Does Strowman have a plan to conquer The Conqueror? Regardless, Lesnar will need to be looking over both shoulders at all times from now on.
How will Rollins’ rivalry with Elias play out in the wake of the WWE Money in the Bank controversy?

Although The Kingslayer outsmarted his challenger by grabbing the tights to pick off the three-count, the volatile rivalry between the two Superstars could very well result in a whole new level of destruction in the wake of their pay-per-view contest. Or, will the fighting titleholder move on to a different challenger?
