With less than one week to go for Extreme Rules, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on Monday night made a huge statement by bringing the tribal chief Roman Reigns from Smackdown to RAW for a fight that turned into two. The show started with New Day teaming up with Big E to take on The Usos and Reigns in a six-man tag team match. An unwanted interference from Bobby Lashley saw The Usos and Reigns defeating the New Day and Big E and in the process set up a storyline for Monday’s Triple Threat Main Event.
Here are results from Monday night’s WWE:
