WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Why Did Roman Reigns Show Up?

monday night raw live results roman reigns may 6

Roman Reigns announced on Twitter this weekend that he will appear on Monday Night RAW this week, despite being a SmackDown Live superstar.

😂😂 Just have my music ready.
I’ll be kicking things off on #Raw right at 8pm. https://t.co/DJsTczTKAF

The situation got even weirder when WWE officials announced that he won't actually show up on RAW. Of course, Roman isn't one to do what he's told by The Authority so expect "The Big Dog" to start off the night, but what is this "unfinished business" that he's talking about?

Roman is currently with Shane McMahon and Elias after Reigns hit Mr. McMahon with the Superman Punch on his first night as a SmackDown Live Superstar so what he'll be doing on RAW is anyone's guess.

The Money in the Bank pay-per-view is in a couple of weeks and the participants will likely be in action tonight. On the RAW side, Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre, Ricochet and Baron Corbin will be competing for the MITB briefcase, so the dynamic between these four men will continue to form as they look for momentum heading into their ladder match on May 19.

Following an intense contract signing, AJ Styles stood tall over Universal Champion Seth Rollins to end last week's Monday Night RAW. How will Seth respond this week? The road to another dream match continues tonight.

Becky "Two Belts" Lynch continues being on top of both women's divisions, but Lacey Evans is looking to knock her off her porch at Money in the Bank. The two women have been at odds each week but how will the "Sassy Southern Belle" continue to get under Becky's skin this week? And with Lynch taking on Evans and Charlotte in two weeks should she not look past Lacey when defending both her titles on the same night?

Here's everything that happened on the May 6 episode of Monday Night RAW.
