Three Money in the Bank qualifying matches announced for WWE Raw


The build to Money in the Bank officially kicks off with three qualifying matches taking place on tonight's Raw.

The qualifying matches that have been announced for tonight's show are all for the women's Money in the Bank ladder match. The qualifiers are: Asuka vs. Ruby Riott, Kairi Sane vs. Nia Jax, and Shayna Baszler vs. Sarah Logan.

Baszler unsuccessfully challenged for Becky Lynch's Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 36, but WWE has made it clear that their feud isn't over.

Asuka & Sane lost the Women's Tag Team titles to Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross at WrestleMania. Bliss & Cross also defeated Asuka & Sane in a WrestleMania rematch on SmackDown last Friday.

Asuka defeated Liv Morgan in a singles match on last Monday's Raw.

After a year away from the ring due to undergoing surgery to repair both of her ACLs, Jax returned to action by decisively defeating Deonna Purrazzo on Raw last week.

Money in the Bank is set for Sunday, May 10. Two qualifying matches have also been announced for this Friday's SmackDown. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro will determine one of the participants for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match, while qualifiers for the women's ladder match will continue with Naomi vs. Dana Brooke.

WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will kick off tonight's Raw. An appearance by Becky Lynch is also advertised for the show.
