He was not to be stopped as the Big Dog caught Mahal in the backstage and gave him a tough beating.
Whether it is Roman Reigns' backstage assault or Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens rumbling outside the ring, you will find the best bits here. Kevin Owens indicated on social media that he planned to answer Seth Rollins's challenge. But Owens countered quickly to come up with a Spike DDT and hit his opponent with a Fisherman Suplex. In the first of two MITB qualifiers, Bobby Roode, No Way Jose, and Baron Corbin battle it out in a triple threat match. Roode hit the Glorious DDT on Jose to win. Mahal says he can not compete tonight and Angle says the match is still on tonight, Mahal says he will still qualify for Money In The Bank tonight. Bliss got the pin on Bayley to win.
Divide and conquer may have been the game plan for the Riott Squad, but after Sasha Banks managed to escape some gruelling punishment and help turn the tides on this gang, the end was near. This allowed Natalya to lock in the Sharpshooter on Morgan to pick up the win via submission.
Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre had a plan last night, and it involved redirecting the force of nature known as Braun Strowman. Rollins goes to the top rope and he goes for the frog splash, Owens gets his knees up and he rolls up Rollins for a near fall.

- Next week's RAW from Albany, NY will feature a segment with Sami Zayn bringing Bobby Lashley's sisters to the show to "expose" him for who Sami says he really is. Roman asks when Kurt started speaking for Jinder, but Kurt says that he speaks for management, and he says that last week when he denied Jinder Mahal the opportunity to compete to be in the Money In The Bank ladder match.
