WWE Monday Night Raw Live Results: New Firefly Fun House and a New Universal Championship Contender to Be Determined

The Hell in a Cell pay-per-view is less than two weeks away and the WWE is preparing for the build with some matches that have huge ramifications to the Universal Championship scene.

A Fatal Five-Way match will take place tonight pitting five of WWE's top contenders against each other to be the next number one contender for Seth Rollins' Universal Championship. Robert Roode, Ricochet, Rey Mysterio, AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura will all go at it to earn the opportunity to face Rollins on next week's Monday Night RAW, which is also the season finale of the show.

The Fiend and Seth Rollins are scheduled to tango at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on October 6 but with his title on the line a week before, the match may not have the same stakes.

Speaking of The Fiend, a new episode of Firefly Fun House is scheduled for tonight's episode. Every episode of the Fun House have been cryptic and teased doom for Seth Rollins, but will tonight's edition be any different?

Over in the women's division, Sasha Banks and Bayley are looking to dominate both RAW and SmackDown's women's divisions. Following their tag team victory last week, Banks was challenged by Nikki Cross. Cross doesn't take kindly to those who want to hurt her best friend, Alexa Bliss and Nikki wants to play with Sasha. Where Banks is, Bayley won't be far behind so will they continue their momentum or can Cross get revenge for Bliss?

Baron Corbin won the King of the Ring tournament last week over Chad Gable, but praised his opponent the next night during his coronation. However, in typical Corbin fashion, he was more insulting than congratulatory so Gable took out his frustrations on Corbin's regal garb. The two will have a rematch tonight, but will Corbin go 2-0 against Chad or can Gable knock Baron down a peg or two?

Here's everything that happened on the September 24 episode of Monday Night RAW.
