This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw closed out with the WWE Championship match between Randy Orton and Bobby Lashley. Throughout the show, Big E was shown in various segments to let the fans know that he would cash in at some point during or after the match.
Orton had the match won after hitting the RKO but MVP pulled him out of the ring. Orton hit the RKO on MVP at ringside but Lashley recovered in time to hit the spear and then pin Orton to win the title. Lashley then attacked Matt Riddle at ringside and he hit a Dominator slam through the table.
Lashley came up limping after slamming Orton after apparently tweaking his knee. Immediately after, Big E made his way out to the ring with the Money In The Bank briefcase so he could cash in as he promised earlier.
After a commercial break, the referee started the match after Big E slapped Lashley. Lashley then mauled Big E with a ground and pound but E fought back by taking out Lashley’s knee but Lashley countered with a spear and a pin attempt that E kicked out of. Big E tried a slam but E countered into the Big Ending and he pinned Lashley to win the title. Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston went out to celebrate with Big E after the match.
