Fans who turned into Monday’s episode of Raw saw two WWE Title matches take place.
Bobby Lashley successfully retained the title over Randy Orton in the main event. After the match, Lashley put Orton through the announce table in order to sell a storyline knee injury.
Big E made good on his promise to cash in the Money In The Bank contract to get his title match and beat Lashley with the Big Ending to become the new champion.
Pwnsider.com reported this morning that there was a huge uptick in morale among the wrestlers at the show as they were genuinely excited for him to win the title as Big E is beloved by the locker room so it was seen as a huge deal.
Those on the SmackDown roster said that they wished they could’ve been there for the moment. Regarding Lashley’s knee, he is fine and received a lot of praise for his performance.
After Raw, it was reported that WWE putting the title on Big E was not a late decision.
