WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Who Will Be A Part of MITB Ladder Matches?

AJ Styles, who defeated Baron Corbin in a match last week, will go one-on-one with Universal Champion Seth Rollins at Money in the Bank. The two superstars have yet to go to war in the WWE and fans are looking forward to the technique and athleticism both men will bring to their match. But is Rollins ready to defend his Universal title against the man who held the WWE Championship for over a year?

Is Lynch overlooking Evans or will make good on her promise to tap out Lacey before she even breaks a sweat?
