WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins to Meet for MITB Contract Signing

It's the second to last Monday Night RAW before the Money in the Bank pay-per-view, and WWE continues to build toward the company-altering show.

Not much is known about this week's Monday Night RAW, but we're getting a contract signing between WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins. Contract signings in the WWE rarely go as planned, but how will McIntyre react to Rollins after "The Architect" stomped the champion last week?

In an exhibition between Money in the Bank ladder match competitors, Asuka, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will go head-to-head-to-head in a triple-threat match tonight. Baszler and Nia Jax have been on mean streaks in recent weeks, but can Asuka continue her journey to the top of Monday Night RAW?

Baszler has her sights set on RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch and she won't stop until she gets a rematch with "The Man." Nia Jax, since her return, has decimated everyone who has gotten in her way including Kairi Sane twice. Asuka may have her sights set on Jax for taking out her friend Sane twice, but she'll have to watch out for Baszler.

The Street Profits, RAW's tag team champions, are on top of the tag division but with The Viking Raiders in their path, can they overcome the team that they've never been able to defeat? Bianca Belair is now on Monday Night RAW and looks to keep Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins in check so they can keep the tag titles as long as possible.

Speaking of the Viking Raiders, Ivar and Erik weren't on Monday Night RAW last week, but they had a video of them driving and singing a song about them. It's a huge departure from their usual characters so it'll be interesting to see if we learn more about them this week.

Here's everything that happened on the April 27 episode of Monday Night RAW.
