WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Backlash 2018 Fallout

The Monday Night RAW after a pay-per-view is normally a time for fresh feuds. The fallout from Backlash will be felt on the May 7 episode as the WWE heads into Money in the Bank in June.

According to WWE.com, the question whether Roman Reigns should challenge Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is posed on the company’s site. After his victory against Samoa Joe in the main event of Backlash, Reigns seems poised to challenge for the title again, but WWE says challengers like Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley may be vying for the same spot.

Speaking of title opportunities, the Money in the Bank pay-per-view announced at Backlash and means WWE Superstars will be vying to get into the match. The Miz announced himself in the match on the Backlash post-show, and this episode of RAW may confirm others into both the men’s and women’s matches.
