WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns to Meet Face-to-Face

Last Monday, RAW ended with the reformation of The Shield, as Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose helped Roman Reigns stave off Braun Strowman's Money in the Bank cash-in attempt for a shot at Roman's WWE Universal title.

This week, Strowman seeks revenge, having called out Reigns to meet him face-to-face on the Aug. 27 edition of Monday Night RAW. Both men will be in the ring tonight, but will Strowman get another championship opportunity? Or will Reigns and his Shield brethren stop him again?

Elsewhere on the card, there are no confirmed matches for tonight, but WWE.com's official RAW preview teases Constable Baron Corbin's new position as General Manager. Will Finn Balor incur the wrath of the Constable? And how will Ronda Rousey and the rest of the WWE Superstars react to this new appointment?

This episode of RAW is looking to be explosive, here's everything that happened on Monday Night RAW.


Opening Segment

  • Strowman comes out and laughs at Roman calling himself a workhorse.
  • Roman says that The Shield is a "brotherhood of workhorses" and that each and every one of them knows how it feels to be at the top and all Strowman has done is say "get these hands." Roman says that he's held every belt in the WWE and tells Strowman to cash-in tonight.
