WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Edge and Christian Reunite Ahead of Backlash

It's the Monday Night RAW before the Backlash pay-per-view and WWE will look to put the final touches to the matches to happen this Sunday.

Backlash is looking to put on the "greatest match ever" between Edge and Randy Orton. Both competitors had their Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36, but Orton wants to prove to his former tag team partner that he's more accomplished than him.

Edge's best friend, Christian will return to Monday Night RAW in a special installment of "The Peep Show." Edge will discuss his relationship with Orton and their upcoming match this Sunday. But whenever Edge is around, "The Viper" won't be far behind. How will the final beat before Orton and Edge's match at Backlash go down?

Charlotte Flair lost the NXT Women's Championship at Takeover: In Your House to Io Shirai and now she's back on Monday Night RAW in a singles match against RAW Women's Champion Asuka.

Asuka has her singles match against Nia Jax this Sunday, but she can't overlook her arch nemesis Charlotte tonight. Flair will look to get back on the right track by defeating the top woman on RAW.

RAW Tag Team Champions, The Street Profits continue their challenges with The Viking Raiders tonight. But instead of bowling, basketball or axe throwing, the two teams will compete in a decathlon. With the score even, this will determine who is indeed the top team on RAW.

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will take on Bobby Lashley on Backlash this Sunday, but before then Lashley will be a special guest on MVP's VIP Lounge. MVP and Lashley will tell the WWE Universe what happened last week on RAW after the cameras stopped rolling. Lashley had McIntyre in a Full Nelson and wouldn't let go, but is it a sign of things to come or will McIntyre look to get revenge?

Sasha Banks and Bayley won the Women's Tag Team Champions on this past Friday Night SmackDown, and now they're appearing on RAW to make an announcement.

Will the duo have an open invitational to any team to challenge them for the titles or is there something else afoot? The IIConics have been trying to get their hands on the Women's Tag Team Championships again, and they have history with Banks and Bayley so they could be next in line.

A lot can happen on the go-home show. Here's everything that happened on Monday Night RAW.
