Monday’s RAW from the American Airlines Center in Dallas featured fallout from Money In the Bank, and was the first red brand show back on the road since the return to touring last Friday. WWE had just one segment advertised ahead of time, and that was John Cena’s return, but other surprises were rumored, including the return of WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg. The main event, which was announced earlier in the show, saw Charlotte Flair defend her newly-won RAW Women’s Title against Rhea Ripley, which ended with Nikki A.S.H. cashing in her Money In the Bank briefcase to become the new champion.
