*** RAW ***

- Money In The Bank Competitors Promo: RAW kicked off with Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Sami Zayn, Alberto Del Rio, and Cesaro in the ring.

Ambrose says he'll fight anyone or anything. Del Rio insults everyone in Spanish and calls Zayn a paperboy. Jericho says he created this match so he's winning it. Cesaro mocks Jericho because he never won one. Jericho says they should all shut up and enjoy the Gift of Jericho. Ambrose punches Jericho and a brawl breaks out.
Old Smackdown GM, Teddy Long arrives and starts rattling off matches. Stephanie McMahon is out next and asks Teddy what the hell he's doing. With Shane McMahon on vacation this week Teddy says he wants a shot at proving he can run the show again. Stephanie isn't having it and tells Teddy to leave. Stephanie then announces tonight's real card involving one on one matches between all the money in the bank participants.

- Chris Jericho vs. Cesaro: The match closes out with Jericho landing a kick on Cesaro, gets a near fall and then trades punches with Cesaro. Cesaro goes for The Neutralizer, but Jericho counters it into the Walls Of Jericho submission. Cesaro counters that into the Cesaro Swing and then locks Jericho in the Sharpshooter submission. Cesaro picks up the win as Jericho taps out.
Winner: Cesaro, by submission.

- Rusev vs. Jack Swagger: Titus O'Neil was on commentary for this match. The match closes out with Swagger locking Rusev in the Patriot Lock submission, but Rusev escapes to the floor.

After the match, Swagger and Titus go after Rusev, but Rusev retreats.
Winner: Rusev, by countout.

- John Cena Promo: Cena talks about what happened last week with AJ Styles and wants to know why he did what he did. Styles arrives with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Styles says he did what he did cause the plan was to shake Cena's hand then punch Cena in the mouth. Styles says Cena offends him and Cena can't wrestle. Cena says Styles is saying the same stuff that people have said about Cena for years, Styles failed at winning the Royal Rumble, failed twice at winning the WWE World Title and Styles is a bust. Styles says he has nothing to lose, which makes him the most dangerous man in the business. Styles says he knows what happens, once people go up against Cena its time to get out the shovel because Cena buries his opponents. Styles says The Club is his insurance policy so it doesn't happen to him. The Club all surround Cena, but The New Day hit the ring to help Cena back off The Club. 

- Enzo and Big Cass vs. The Vaudevillains: The match closes out with Cass hitting the Empire Elbow. English tosses Enzo into the ropes the same way he did at WWE Payback that gave Enzo his concussion and Enzo is knocked out again.

After the match, Enzo is up and back in the ring as Cass continues to unload on Gotch and English.
Winners: The Vaudevillains, by DQ.

- Backstage, Teddy Long suggests to Stephanie McMahon that she make a fatal four way match for the WWE World Tag Team Championship at Money In The Bank. Stephanie tells Teddy to leave, then officially announces the same match and takes credit for it.
