WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Becky Lynch Makes a 'Major' Announcement

It's the Monday Night RAW after the Money in the Bank pay-per-view and the WWE is looking to start off this next chapter with a bang.

According to the WWE, RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch will return to make a massive announcement. Fans have speculated for hours what Lynch's message will be, ranging from Becky announcing a pregnancy to her dropping the title.

The WWE promoted this week's Monday Night RAW to have a face-to-face with Women's Money in the Bank winner Asuka. Is this part of her message or will there be two parts to her announcement?

And what does Asuka's win mean for the rest of the RAW Women's division? Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will want a shot at the title, but will they have to go through Asuka first?

RAW Tag Team Champions, The Street Profits, have been engulfed in a feud with The Viking Raiders for weeks. After being defeated last week, what's next for Angelo Dawkins, Montez Ford, Ivar and Erik? It would seem that a tag title opportunity is in the stars for The Viking Raiders, but is that a certainty?

Drew McIntyre defeated Seth Rollins on Sunday to retain the WWE Championship. Now that the "Monday Night Messiah" has been vanquished, who's next for Drew or is Seth just getting started?

Also, Edge returns to Monday Night RAW and the official RAW preview states that the "Rated R Superstar" is on the hunt for Randy Orton. After defeating Orton at WrestleMania 36 in a Last Man Standing Match, what more will Edge need in his rivalry and feud with "The Viper"?

It's expected to be a big night on Monday Night RAW, here's everything that happened.
